Meat & 3 Veg Tapas

Makes 4 servings. Fried sausages, roasted potatoes, caramelised onions, and sautéed peas snugly sit together in this tapas-inspired, family-style spread, served not with gravy, but with an entire wheel of oozy Camembert cheese! For this dish, I cook all the elements in cast iron, except for the baked cheese dip. That way, the outsides of […]

Parmesan Cookies

Makes 24 x 5 cm cookies. Easy peasy, cookies cheesy. Made with just a handful of ingredients, these savoury cookies take such little effort and time, that you’ll be baking them a little too often. I must warn you though, as easy as they are to make, they’re even easier to eat. Buttery and crispy […]

Makes a three-tiered 6 inch layered cake. You’ve heard of Red Velvet. She’s passionate and all the rage at parties. This is her introvert cool blue friend from another trend. Just like his more outgoing ruby peer; he too carries a buttermilk moistened crumb and background notes of cocoa. He too is sweet, he too […]

Pepperoni Pizza

Makes 2 x 10 inch pizzas. Pepperoni pizza is a hot favourite in our home. As a result, I’ve experimented extensively before arriving at this recipe. While everything is made from scratch, you can bang out this pizza in 90 minutes flat. There’s no need to pre-bake the crust or reduce the sauce for hours. […]

Quiche Lorraine…ish

Makes one 11 inch quiche. Last year, I had the privilege of eating Quiche Lorraine, in Lorraine. Cream, eggs, bacon, pastry. That’s it. Yet, it was so profoundly delicious, that I had to recreate it in Mumbai. My recipe has the basic flavour profile of a traditional Quiche Lorraine, with one major modification—a phyllo pastry […]
