Instructions
  1. To start, you need a quarter red, yellow and green pepper, a large ripe but firm tomato, 10ml crushed garlic, and 15ml Italian herb blend. If you can't find the herb blend in your supermarket, I have included the recipe below in the description.
  2. Chop the tomato and place it in a bowl, dice the peppers and add these.
  3. Add the garlic, and finally the dried herb blend. Stir this all together thoroughly and put it aside for the flavors to develop.
  4. Take eight rashers of well smoked streaky bacon and cut this into bits, across the grain.
  5. Cut 100g mozzarella cheese into squares, and slice 80g cheddar or Monterey Jack into 8 slices.
  6. Peel 650g potato and dice it into cubes of 10mm in size.
  7. Cut 2 squares of baking parchment, 300mm in size and place these on a baking sheet.
  8. Fry the diced potato in your deep fryer at 180c or 350f until crispy and golden.
  9. At this stage, turn on the grill, or upper element of your oven to maximum to preheat.
  10. Transfer half of the fried cubes to each of the parchment squares.
  11. Spread them into a circle keeping them slightly heaped up at the same time.
  12. Divide the tomato pepper mixture evenly between the two and spread these over the top of the potato.
  13. Pick up any stray bits and place these on top.
  14. Place the cheddar slices on top of the heap in a cross formation.
  15. Complete the cheese by scattering the mozzarella blocks evenly over each pizza.
  16. Top each pizza with half of the bacon bits.
  17. Give each pizza a generous grind of salt and pepper, and you're ready to bake.
  18. Transfer the baking sheet to the center of your oven to grill until the cheese is well melted, and the bacon is fully cooked and browning nicely on the edges.
  19. Remove the pizzas from the oven and serve piping hot with a tall beer to keep it company.

  2. Measure out 45ml or 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 60g of butter.
  3. Finely chop 200g of streaky bacon and 225g of lean pork shoulder and place this in a mixing bowl along with 450g of lean ground beef. Massage these together until completely combined.
  4. Combine 250ml of beef stock with 250ml of dry white wine and put this aside.
  5. Combine 5ml or a teaspoon of salt with 2.5ml or a half teaspoon of cracked black pepper, 7.5ml or one and a half tespoon of dried sage, 15ml or a tablespoon of dried oregano, 2.5ml of dried chilli flakes and 1.25ml or a quarter teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and put this aside.
  6. In addition, you need an 800g can of Italian style crushed tomatoes, and 250ml or a cup of full cream milk.
  7. Heat the butter and oil over medium high heat until bubbling and add the finely chopped onion, garlic, celery and carrot.
  8. Fry these until the onion is translucent.... about 6 to 8 minutes.
  9. Add the three ground meats and fry these until lightly browned.... this will take another 6 to 8 minutes.
  10. Increase the heat to high and pour in the combined beef stock and wine.
  11. Bring this to a boil and continue cokoing until the liquid has almost reduced to nothing.
  12. Turn the heat down to a simmer and add the mixed herbs and spices. Stir this in thoroughly and allow this simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  13. Pour in the crushed tomato, raise the heat to a boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer and allow this to simmer away gently for 2 to 4 hours, partially covered. Give the pot a stir every so often, and add a dash of wine every time the mixture gets too dry. The 2 to 4 hours simmering time is up to you. 2 hours being the minimum, however the longer you simmer the deeper the flavor and texture of the bolognese will become.
  14. About 10 minutes before serving, pour in the milk and continue cooking until the sauce reaches your preferred consistency and you're done.

Recipe type: Preserves
Cuisine: Moroccan
 
Preserved lemons are widely used in Middle Eastern cuisine to add a unique flavor and tang to curries and tagines. The process of making your own preserved lemon is quick and easy, however you will have to wait for a month to pickle before using them. This is how to do it....
Ingredients
  • 850g Lemons
  • 55g / 60ml Coarse Kosher salt / Himalayan rock salt
  • 250ml Lemon juice
  • 250ml Lime juice
  • Extra water to top up
Instructions
  1. To start, you will need 250ml of lemon juice and 250ml of lime juice, 55g or quarter cup of coarse kosher salt, or Himalayan rock salt, and 850g of lemons.
  2. Cut down through each lemon twice, leaving just about 5mm uncut at the base.
  3. Open a lemon up and drop a proportionate amount of salt into the lemon. In other words, if you have 6 lemons, drop one sixth of the coarse salt into the lemon.
  4. Continue until all of the lemons are filled.
  5. Transfer the lemons to a sterilized 1.5 liter preserve jar. Pack them tightly.
  6. Pour in the lemon and lime juices and top the jar up with filtered water until the lemons are covered.
  7. Close the lid, and you're finished. Place the jar in a cool dark cupboard for a full month before using.
  8. Stay tuned, as in a month when these are ready to use, we will be doing a couple of Moroccan curries and tagines using these preserved lemons.

Zig Zag Lasagna! How to Make Zig-Zag Lasagna from Start to Finish - Quick & Easy Lasagna Recipe!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 6
 
Today we're going to artfully combine fresh pasta, creamy cheese sauce and chicken sausage to make a delicious zig-zag lasagna.
Ingredients
For the Pasta
  • 500g All-purpose flour
  • 5ml Salt
  • 250ml Water
For the Cheese Sauce
  • 130g Butter
  • 80g All-purpose flour
  • 2,5ml Nutmeg
  • 1200ml Full cream milk
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 200g Mature cheddar cheese, grated
For the Rest
  • 1200g Chicken sausage
  • 100g + 100g + 100g Mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Today we're going to artfully combine fresh pasta, creamy cheese sauce and chicken sausage to make a delicious zig-zag lasagna.
  2. To make the pasta, place 500g of all-purpose flour in your food processor along with a teaspoon of salt.
  3. Pour in 125ml or half of the water and machine this on high speed until the mixture resemble rough breadcrumbs, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour in the remaining 125ml of water and machine this again on high speed until the dough starts to combine, about 90 seconds. Tilting the machine from side to side while doing this helps the process tremendously.
  5. You will know the dough is ready when it holds together when compressed.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and compress it into mass. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow this to stand for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes, unwrap the dough and cut the block into 4 pieces.
  8. Flatten out one piece and run it through your pasta roller, starting on setting 1, working gradually to setting 4. Dust the pasta sheet with a little flour between each pass through the machine to stop any sticking.
  9. Square off the ends of the sheet and dust it liberally with flour on both sides.
  10. Put this aside and continue with the remaining sheets. At the end, combine all of the off-cuts and roll out a fifth sheet.
  11. For the cheese sauce, melt 130g of butter in a large pan over medium heat.
  12. Add 80g of all-purpose flour and a half teaspoon of nutmeg.
  13. Use a paddle to stir this into the melted butter until it is smooth. Allow this to cook for 90 seconds.
  14. Turn off the gas or remove the pan from the heat and whisk in 1200ml of milk and add 2 bay leaves.
  15. Return the pan to the heat and simmer the sauce until thickened, whisking continuously.
  16. Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and add 200g of grated mature cheddar cheese. Use your paddle to stir this until the cheese has completely melted into the sauce.
  17. You will need 3 double potion lasagna dishes, or a single 6 portion pan... this would be equivalent to a large roasting tin.
  18. Spoon just enough of the sauce into each dish to cover the base.
  19. Cut the sausage to the length of the dish and place it in the dish equally spaced. For 6 portions you will need 1200g of sausage.
  20. Cover the sausage with lasagna sheet, cutting it just slightly smaller than the dish.
  21. Press the lasagna sheet down between the sausages to create furrows.
  22. Spoon enough sauce into the dish to completely cover the pasta.
  23. Cut another 4 lengths of sausage to fill the furrows created by the pasta. Press the sausages down into the sauce.
  24. Cut another piece of lasagna sheet to cover the sausages and press this down to remove any trapped air pockets.
  25. Cover the pasta with another layer of sauce and smooth it off with the back of your spoon.
  26. Sprinkle a further 100g of mature cheddar over the top of the sauce, before continuing with the remaining dishes.
  27. Bake the lasagna in a preheated oven at 180c for 35 to 40 minutes until crispy and golden on top.
  28. Remove the pasta from the oven and allow it to stand for 10 minutes to set.
  29. Use a sharp knife to cut cleanly through the cheesy top and the sausages.
  30. Use your lifter to lift the portions from the dish and serve immediately with the accompaniments and garnish of your choice.

Calzone Recipe - How to Make Calzone from Start to Finish - Calzone Made with No Knead Pizza Dough
Author: 
Recipe type: Pizza
Cuisine: Italian
 
Some time ago we briefly touched on no-knead pizza dough. Today we will deal with this in more detail when we make a wonderful tasty and aromatic calzone from start to finish.
Ingredients
For the Dough (enough for 4 bases)
  • 500g All-purpose flour / double zero / cake flour
  • 1.25ml Dried yeast
  • 10ml Salt
  • 360ml Water
For the Calzone Filling (for 1 Calzone)
  • 4 Rashers streaky bacon, fried and chopped into bits
  • 60g Pizza salami
  • 100g Mozzarella cheese
  • 100g Mature cheddar cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • Cherry tomatoes,sliced
Instructions
  1. To make the dough, place 500g of all-purpose flour in a large tub. Add a quarter teaspoon of dried yeast and 2 teaspoons of salt and stir this in.
  2. Pour in the water and use your paddle to mix this together until the dough balls up and comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl, with no more loose flour in the the mix.
  3. Put the lid on the bowl and allow this to stand at room temperature for 18 to 24 hours to develop.
  4. After this time the dough will have more than doubled in size and you will see bubbles in the surface of the dough.
  5. Use a scale to divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  6. The dough will be quite sticky, and we need to work about 25g of additional flour into each potion.
  7. Flour the work with some of the flour, place portion of dough on the surface and scatter more flour over the top of the dough portion.
  8. Start working the flour into the dough by flattening it and folding it lightly until all or most of the flour is incorporated.
  9. Don't knead the dough as you would normally.... work gently so as not to overdevelop the gluten.
  10. Put this aside and continue with the remaining portions.
  11. To roll the pizza bases, lightly flour your work surface, place a portion of the dough on the flour and lightly flour the top of the dough as well.
  12. Us your rolling pin to roll this out into a circle of 12 inches or 30cm in diameter.
  13. Transfer this to a baking sheet.
  14. Cover one half of the dough with 100g of sliced mozzarella cheese.
  15. Top this with 60g of sliced pizza salami.
  16. Top this with 100g of lightly fried and chopped streaky bacon.
  17. Add the sliced cherry tomatoes and the fresh basil leaves.
  18. Last but not least, finish this off with 100g of grated mature cheddar cheese.
  19. Fold the blank side of the base up and over the filling and match up the edges of the base.
  20. Working one side to the other, secure the seal by folding and crimping the edges together.
  21. Use a paring knife or skewer to poke two steam holes in the top of the calzone.
  22. Zap this into a preheated oven at 250c or 480f until crispy and golden.... about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the efficiency of your oven.
  23. And there we have it... a beautifully browned and crisped calzone filled with heavenly cheeses, bacon and salami.

How to Make Pizza Salami - Full Flavored and Aromatic Cooked Salami
Author: 
Recipe type: Cured Meat
Cuisine: Italian
 
Pizza salami, or cooked salami is the super-quick way to get amazing tasting cured salami without the long curing time. As it is not dry-aged like fermented salami, the moisture content is far higher than its counterpart, which makes it far more suitable as a pizza topping. This how to make it....
Ingredients
  • 1800g Pork Shoulder (boneless, skin off)
  • 450g Pork back fat
  • 50g Kosher salt (or Himalayan rock salt)
  • 6g Prague powder
  • 45g Golden syrup
  • 12g Fennel seeds
  • 12g Cracked black pepper
  • 6g Fresh crushed garlic
  • 125ml Dry red wine
Other
  • 6-7 Mini-salami casings
  • 6-7 Snap ties
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork shoulder into slices narrow enough to fit through the feeder tube of your meat grinder.
  2. Cut the pork back fat into strips as well.
  3. Place the 2 trays in your freezer for 60 minutes to get really cold, even partially frozen.
  4. While the meat chills, measure out the salt, Prague powder, fennel seeds, roughly cracked black pepper and garlic.
  5. Combine the golden syrup with the red wine and mix this until the syrup has totally dissolved.
  6. Fit the 8mm plate to your grinder and run the fat through the grinder.
  7. After this, run the pork through the grinder.
  8. Place the ground meat and fat into your stand mixer bowl.
  9. Unless you have had delays, the meat and fat should still be really cold. If it isn't, return it to the freezer until well chilled before continuing.
  10. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the mixer bowl as well.
  11. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook fitted and mix this for 5 to 8 minutes on medium slow speed, until everything is well combined.
  12. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and place it your refrigerator for 24 hours to cure.
  13. The following day, load the meat into the hopper of your sausage stuffer and fit the 40mm funnel to the stuffer.
  14. Slide a min-salami casing onto the funnel and start cranking. You need to keep a reasonable pressure on the casing to ensure that the meat is well compacted in the casing.
  15. As it comes to the end of the casing, stop cranking and remove the casing.
  16. Twist off the end of the casing and use a snap-tie or zip tie to secure the end. Using a small pair of pliers can be a big help in tightening the tie.
  17. Once all of the salamis are formed, use a carving fork to poke holes along one side of the casings.
  18. Transfer the salamis to a rack in a large roasting tin with the perforated sides facing downward.
  19. Cook these in a preheated oven set at 90c or 194f until the internal temperature reaches anywhere between 67c and 72c, or in farenheit, between 152 and 162f.
  20. This process will take between 3 and a half hours and 4 hours.
  21. Towards the end of this time, remove one of the salamis from the oven and check the internal temperature by inserting a probe thermometer from end down the middle.
  22. When the temperature is in the safe zone, remove the salamis from the oven. Allow them to cool completely, then transfer them to your refrigerator to set overnight. If you try to cut them before this, half of the salami with remain stuck to the casing.
  23. And there it is, beautifully rosy, rich and aromatic cooked salami.... ready to eat, and ready to treat.

  • 50g Finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 100g finely shredded mature cheddar cheese
  • 45ml Snipped garlic chives
  • 15ml Butter for frying
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper for garnishing
Instructions
  1. To start, slice the tomato into thin slices.
  2. Slice the cured, aged salami into 1mm slices.
  3. Finely shred the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Whisk the eggs thoroughly... there must be no albumen visible in the egg.
  5. Finely shred the mature cheddar cheese, and snip about 3 tablespoons of fresh garlic chives.
  6. Add a tablespoon of butter to a 32cm pan. When the butter is sizzling, spread it around to coat the base of the pan.
  7. Pour in the egg and swirl it around to spread it evenly across the pan.
  8. Sprinkle 2 thirds of the chopped chives over the egg, followed by half of the shredded Parmesan cheese.
  9. Spread the thinly sliced salami across the egg, followed by the second half of the Parmesan cheese.
  10. Arrange the thinly sliced tomato around the edge of the pan with any leftover slices in the center.
  11. Season the whole lot with salt and cracked black pepper and remove the pan from the heat.
  12. Slide the egg from the pan onto a large chopping board.
  13. Sprinkle half of the mature cheddar cheese over the egg.
  14. For this part, you need teflon fingers.... starting on one side, roll the egg up as tightly as you can. If you don't have heat-proof fingers, allow the egg to cool for a few minutes first.
  15. Trim off the ends of the roll. This step is the most important of all.... put the ends in your mouth and enjoy the first taste.
  16. Cut the remaining roll into slices of 15mm or 3 quarter inch thick.
  17. These can be served just the way they are, but going the extra mile makes them extra special....
  18. Transfer the rolls to a baking sheet and sprinkle the second half of the cheddar cheese over the rolls.
  19. Place the pan in the center of your oven with just the grilling element on full blast for 5 minutes.
  20. Serve the egg rolls au gratin sprinkled with dusting of cayenne pepper and garnished with the remaining snipped chives.

Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Serves: 12
 
These delicious little buns have a totally unique texture. Super soft, slightly chewy and insanely tasty, these little rolls will do justice to any great feast.
Ingredients
  • 360g All purpose / cake flour
  • 5ml Salt
  • 45ml Sugar (first batch)
  • 5ml Sugar (second batch)
  • 60ml Oil
  • 10g Active dried yeast
  • 250ml Warm water
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 125ml Chopped baby spinach
  • 75g Feta cheese
Instructions
  1. Chop the baby spinach and crumble the feta cheese into this and mix until combined.
  2. In your mixer bowl, measure out the all purpose flour, salt and first batch of sugar.
  3. Pour the warm water into a jug and add the yeast and second measure of sugar.
  4. Whisk this together until the sugar is dissolved, cover the jug and allow this to activate for 15 minutes.
  5. After this time the yeast mixture will be very frothy. Pour in the beaten egg and the oil.
  6. Whisk this until totally combined.
  7. Place your mixer bowl on your mixer with beater attached.
  8. Pour in the liquids, close the mixer and run the machine on slow for 2 minutes.
  9. Increase the speed to medium high and continue for a further 10 minutes.
  10. Stop the machine. The dough will be shiny and smooth and stretchy like melted mozzarella.
  11. Scrape the paddle down, close the machine and let the dough stand for 5 minutes undisturbed. If your machine doesn't have a splash guard, cover the bowl with a towel.
  12. After 5 minutes, add the spinach and feta cheese.
  13. Close the machine and mix on high speed for 60 seconds.
  14. Divide the soft dough equally between the holes of a 12 portion muffin pan.
  15. Cover the pan with a large inverted roasting tin to rise for 20 minutes.
  16. Brush the buns with a light coating of full cream milk and top each bun with a good pinch of finely shredded Parmesan.
  17. Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 12 to 15 minutes until well risen, golden brown and crispy on top.
  18. Remove the buns from the oven and allow them to cool in the muffin pan for 20 minutes before turning them out onto a cooling rack.
  19. And there it is.....a supremely soft, airy, springly and tasty roll... the best dinner roll ever.
