S'mores rocky road 

"This is possibly my proudest creation: chocolate refrigerator cake, or tiffin, crossed with rocky road, crossed with s’mores – the American campfire classic of Graham crackers and marshmallows sandwiched with a piece of chocolate, and toasted over a fire. In this version, the marshmallows just start to catch and caramelise under a hot oven. Perfect to take over to friends’ houses, as it is rich and generously proportioned." Try it here.

Roasted aubergine with peanuts, chilli and lime

"The peanut dressing for this quick and easy dish works so well with the aubergines and pepper – perfect to serve alongside rice or noodles. As brands of peanut butter vary, you may need to spend a little time beating it with the soy sauce and sesame oil to get a good spoonable consistency – but it’s well worth it." Get the recipe here.

All-in-one paella with chicken peppers and chorizo

"Inspired by oven-cook risottos, I give you this oven-cooked paella – no stirring, just beautifully cooked saffron rice, rich with chorizo, chicken and garlic. While it’s celebratory enough to serve to friends, I’d happily eat leftovers for the rest of the week’s lunches or dinners – the flavour only improves overnight in the fridge." Check out the recipe here.
