This ‘en papillote’ recipe is very easy to make. The marinade ensures the chicken is super tender and succulent. The surprising and delicious effect here is the combination of earthy cumin and perfumed lime leaves, A harmonious combination of low notes and high notes. Its worth noting that this...
Spicy and sweet, this ‘en papillote’ recipe is simple to make. Using the papaya seeds is optional but they do add visual impact and have an unexpected hot taste, similar to horseradish. I used super-hot unsmoked Hungarian paprika here, which is why I only used 2 tsp. If you use a milder paprika...
I love cooking chicken breasts ‘en papillote'. They stay so tender and it’s a super quick and easy method. Here, the mango mustard provides a fruity, hot dimension and the garlic, ginger and cinnamon add musky depth. If you can’t be bothered (sorry, I mean don’t have time) to make the mango...
Cooking 'en papillote' is so easy and virtually foolproof. Its the perfect way to cook chicken breast so that it stays moist. Using a culinary blow torch (every kitchen needs one) adds a beautiful charred flavour and improves the appearance of the finished dish.

Parsley Cod en Papillote
Parsley is an excellent ingredient challenge because it can be used in such a wide range of recipes across nearly every cuisine. Thanks goes to @MypinchofItaly for choosing Parsley. So I tried to focus this recipe around using parsley alone as the featured seasoning...
A recipe partly inspired by Persian dishes which use rosewater paired with saffron in sweet dishes but also by 'The First American Cookbook’ written in 1796, which uses rosewater in many savoury dishes. Less is more here so you need to measure the rosewater and saffron carefully for a delicate...
I skipped more traditional Easter dinner recipes this year and made Saffron Lemon Garlic Cod en Papillote. My dinner guests were pleased with my choice. Dinner was served with light french rolls, spinach & feta salad, and a good bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Dinner scored a big A+...
This is a light and lovely dish. The grapes and kiwi fruit add zing and dimension to the classic Tequila lime marinade for chicken. Its very easy to make indeed! I served it with sliced avocado and rice and used a blowtorch to char the chicken and chilli. Instead of cooking 'en papillote' you...

This is a lesson in how to make healthy cabbage ‘unhealthy’ but delicious. Cooked ‘en papillote’ the green outer leaves of the cabbage stay green and flavours are intensified. The caramelised cut edges provide umami flavour and juniper adds a hint of pine forest. Serve on its own with some...
From the Paper-Bag Cookery by Vera Countess Serkoff (1911). Its on-line here:
I am not sure how these cakes are supposed to be but they are more like a shortbread than a cake - buttery, crumbly and delicious. I found they took more like...

I marinated the chicken in lemon juice, lemon zest, and curry powder for two days (planned on cooking it yesterday).
This made three individual packets.
