My favourite thing about the change of seasons is the diversity in produce. This Autumnal Salad makes the most of beautiful deep colours and flavours we get when the leaves begin to fall and the sun never seems to wake up.
This salad has everything you want, crunch, char, herbs, raw, cooked and confit. Crispy rice, cema di repe, dill, radish, confit shallots, char onions & green beans make for the perfect vegetarian main or nice accompaniment to fish, chicken or steak.
This raw number works well as a side for lamb, pork and fish in particular. The balance of palate extremities makes it pretty versatile – bitter radicchio, sweet, sour, acid and softened with some creamy nuttiness of almonds.
A nice balance of tangy, sweet and crunchy. I made this dish originally to go with a donburi, but it works well as a side to a heap of Asian dishes and roast meats, and is perfect on a sandwich.
A salad unsurpassable in colour, crunch, flavour, and general freshness BOOM.
This retro number has it all – fresh, nutty, salty, cheesy, tart.
Juicy tangy oranges and crunchy sweet fennel are a perfect salad yin-yang. This fennel and orange salad pairs perfectly with many dishes, especially fish.
This week, graphic designers and creative lovebirds Jaques and Lise from Belgium have illustrated our classic Syrian Fattoush.. a voluptuous (fat-tushed!) aubergine gets cosy in a flatbread bed full Middle Eastern flavour!
Sumac roast chicken is a great one to have in your roast chicken repertoire. Easy, quick and a great pairing between the lemony Middle Eastern spice and a juicy, golden roasted chicken.
With the onset of warmer weather in New York, all I’m craving is seafood. Wandering around the farmers market on a balmy afternoon, I decided to buy a few random ingredients and take a ‘ready, steady, cook’ approach to dinner.
Just when you thought the classic Italian salad of juicy tomatoes, sweet basil and oily croutons couldn’t get any better, the folks at Diner Journal go and add wedges of honey-doused caramelised grilled peaches, plums and nectarines.
