To make this recipe properly you will need a ‘Flanera.’ The lid of the ‘Flanera’ allows the custard to steam which gives a lovely, soft result. In this recipe Maria has added coconut which brings a nice twist to this classic dish. Roughly translated as potatoes with an asparagus and herb dressing, this makes a fantastic side dish to simply cooked white fish.

For best results, you’ll want to marinate the meat overnight. Combine the marinade ingredients and leave the meat overnight in the marinade, turning it occasionally to ensure full absorption. At the same time, soak the fresh or dried dates in a little red wine. The next day remove the meat from the marinade, pat it dry, and then roast it in an oven pre-heated to 200°C/gas mark 6, well-seasoned and with olive oil.

‘Mulled’ means heated with spices, which is just the thing for the cold days of winter! The rich, robust flavours of venison pair wonderfully with the zesty orange. Add a twist to your casserole repertoire, with the unlikely but winning combination of beef and orange. This Spicy Szechuan Stir-Fry is quick to make and full of flavour. There are few things that conjure up childhood as effectively. The mash is the perfect foil to the richness of the sausage and gravy.

It’s amazing how little food changes from one millennium to the next. When reading the Roman physician Galen’s description of making pancakes, it is hard to remember that he is writing 1,800 years ago! The early Greek poet Hipponax had written of pancakes ‘drugged with sesame seeds’. This was likely a breakfast meal and one that was possibly sold on the streets of ancient Athens from portable braziers. These pancakes are thicker than the crêpe-style pancakes familiar to us and they are served with honey and toasted sesame seeds. Slice the marrow or squash and boil until al dente (still firm).
