Let the smell of baked bread lead you from your late morning slumbers into a world of sunny skies, fresh food and, most importantly, long mealtimes. This lovely focaccia is an Italian escape on a plate – wondrously fluffy inside, gloriously crispy outside. Top yours with cherry tomatoes, black olives and a generous handful of oregano for a traditional flavour combination – then dip in olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a delicious start to the day.
Satay has been an Asian favourite for hundreds of years; plenty of time for the recipe to be honed and perfected into the rich and spicy delicacy it is today. For this classic street food, simplicity is key. We love this easy satay recipe which needs just eight ingredients for both chicken and dipping sauce. Our perfectly balanced Medium Curry Powder makes for the perfect balance of heat to flavour, so your chicken kebabs will turn out perfectly every time.
Become a master of your own seaside paella with all the authentic flavours of this Spanish favourite. We love this lightly spicy recipe piled high with seafood and bell peppers, but this is one dish that you can tailor to any taste. Try throwing in chicken, spiced chickpeas or an extra serving of your favourite vegetables – and don’t forget the chorizo! Then just stir in our Authentic Spanish Paella recipe mix, packed with paprika, lemon and parsley. ¡Buen provecho!
Provence was just made for long evenings dining alfresco – and with this sophisticated marinated chicken recipe you can bring a little bit of the French sunshine right to your own back garden. At the centre of this culinary masterpiece is chicken breast, marinated overnight in our Herbes de Provence blend and supported by spicy chorizo salsa and mellow courgette purée. This dish is perfect for a romantic dinner beneath the stars – so prepare the sound system and set the scene for an evening you’ll never forget.
