Persian Flatbread Recipe
Nan-e barbari is a classic Persian flatbread that gets crisp and golden in the oven, thanks to roomal, a flour paste that’s spread over the bread before it’s baked. Jessamyn Rodriguez likes to serve it with feta and olives. Slideshow: Fantastic Flatbread Recipes
Rosemary Roasted Pork with Maple Apple Sauce
This is a Donna Hay recipe and like all of her recipes it's styled beautifully and is beautifully simple not requiring a wedding guest list sized amount of ingredients. In truth this could serve 4-6 people depending on how hungry they were but I would suggest making this for 2-3 people because of the delicious leftovers. In this case, the pork actually somehow becomes more tender the day after and when sliced paper thinly, it is absolutely mouth watering on buttered fresh bread with a…
I sat on this recipe for months literally, trying to find an opportunity where I would have two whole hours to make breakfast. Not surprisingly, it took a while to get a chance to do this. I have possums to either blame or thank for this.
Spinach, Avocado and Pumpkin Seed Salad
This is one of my favourite salads: superb with salmon; wonderful alone. If you don't have any pumpkin oil, simply replace both pumpkin and groundnut oils with good extra virgin olive oil. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
Ricotta, Chive & Tomato mini tarts for morning tea with a friend
These tiny little tarts are ideal cocktail party nibbly food or food for a morning or afternoon tea. They are best when warm from the oven, as I always think there's something magical about hot pastry but cool pastry loses it mojo. As for the tomato on the top, I was torn, about whether I should top the tarts with the tomato before or after they were put in the oven. Once they're baked they collapse a little, like a semi dried tomato so I've shown both, one with the baked tomato top and one…
Satay Chicken Recipe
Her satay recipe is unusual and so flavoursome because she marinates the chicken in a sauce similar to the satay sauce which adds so much to the meat. The sauce takes about 10 minutes to cook courtesy of the peanut butter and apart from the fridge time while it marinates, the most time taken is with threading the meat on the skewers. This task usually fell to my grandmother when she lived with us and she'd do it while watching television.

NYT Cooking: This involtini is one of the dishes you'll find yourself making again and again in some style or other. Slice eggplant thinly, then oil and grill it. The vegetable’s oily blandness is perfectly countered by the salty, minty, raisin-and-pine-nut-studded filling. Best of all, the eggplant can be grilled and the filling can be made in advance, and then assembled about half an...
Sticky, Spicy Lamb Ribs
I experimented with a few spice rubs and glazes until I arrived with something that I think I could even convince my lamb fearing father to eat. The lamb ribs or riblets as they are sometimes called are different from cutlets which are trimmed although feel free to use cutlets if that's all you have access to. Lamb ribs are tasty, very inexpensive at around $7 a kilo and are generally procured from butchers that break down the animals themselves.
New Orleans Coleslaw
I can't remember why I call this my New Orleans coleslaw now (I've been making it, or a version of it, for so long), but I think it has something to do with all the wonderful pecan trees I saw when I was there. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
Strawberry Sour Cream Streusel Cake Recipe
NYT Cooking: This strawberry streusel cake is the perfect end to a summer meal. But here's the interesting thing: Eat it slightly warm and it's dessert; let it get cold, and it makes a great coffee cake for breakfast the next day. The cake is slightly tricky to assemble, and at some point it may look like a mess. But everything comes together in the pan as it bakes, resulting in a tender, fragrant cake. Thi...
