When the weather starts to cool, there's nothing quite like a warming, hearty bowl of porridge in the morning to start your day. And it's not just the toppings you can experiment with (think tart rhubarb compote, hunger-quelling cinnamon and blueberry or creamy stewed apple); play around with quinoa porridge, rice porridge and even soy porridge. Breakfast has never tasted so delicious!
The benefits of using a slow cooker are endless; not only does it add ease and convenience to your cooking, but it allows you to create beautifully tender, fragrant and hearty one-pot meals every time, without fail. Simply pop your ingredients in your slow cooker, and come back to a delicious dinner. Too easy!
Postre chajá was created by the owner of a family restaurant in Uruguay. He called his meringue-based dessert 'chajá' after an indigenous bird of the same name, whose fluffy white neck and head plumage reminded him of the meringue. The ability to spot the resemblance seems to be unique to the cake's creator.
You'll understand the origins of the saying "easy as apple pie" after you make this delicious version of the old favourite. The satisfaction of knowing you made it from scratch will be surpassed only by the taste.
Ribollita [ree-boh-lee-tah] literally means ‘reboiled’. This Tuscan soup was originally made by reheating leftover minestrone or vegetable soup and adding bread, white beans and vegetables such as carrot, zucchini, spinach and cavolo nero.
