Inspired by the humble Swiss Roll, we’ve adapted an oozing roulade recipe here with fresh raspberries, whipped double cream and a lightest of sponges.
We’ve given the much-loved Coronation Chicken an exotic touch by adding light Greek yoghurt and fresh coriander. Serve as we have in Stella’s vintage glass compote or use as a very moreish sandwich filling. Choose whatever cut of chicken you...

This is so easy and can be made up to 3 hours in advance and kept at room temperature. Couscous is very welcoming to lots of flavours – parsley, coriander, harissa, chopped pistachios, lemon juice, dried fruits and pomegranates can...
This is an exotic and warming main dish that I accidentally created one day when a recipe called for the flavour-packed marinade in which my chicken was reclining to be discarded. I ignored the instructions and cooked the chicken in...
This recipe is easy (you don’t even have to peel the potatoes) but relatively lengthy because of roasting the vegetables. It is worth the time – the combination of roasted garlic and tuber is divine.

“Gougères” sound so much more glamorous than “cheesy puffs” but this is essentially what they are! A deliciously light choux pastry flavoured with mature cheddar. A warm pile of these delicious bites served on a large platter is all that...
If you can find – or grow – some mini pumpkins (I was given some called ‘Hooligan’ last year; they were total thugs in the veg patch, but prolific and sweet and just the right size for this recipe). They...
This is a versatile dish – vegetarians can just omit the bacon, you can substitute blue or goat’s cheese for the feta and use spinach or broccoli instead of kale. It’s my autumn cardi in a bowl.
These aren’t quite as firm as potato gnocchi, but soft, sweet and flavoursome, they make an unusual accompaniment, or can be served as a starter (with blue cheese sauce) for two.
