DIY Doner Kebab



Takeaways may be an easy (and tasty?) option on a Friday night, but they're so expensive. Especially compared to making your own versions at home which are almost guaranteed to taste better.

Miso Hummus


Miso is a Japanese paste made primarily from fermented soybeans and has a salty, umami flavour. It's probably best known as the main ingredient in miso soup but can also be used in sauces, spreads and marinating meats and fish.

Pizza Bianca Funghi (white pizza with mushrooms)


White pizza has fast become a favourite of mine. I first had one when I went to the Italian restaurant Zizzi and fell in love. It comes away from the classic tomato flavour that crosses between all other pizzas, whether they're thin and crispy or deep and fluffy, but it certainly doesn't lose anything. What I've done here it to really simplify it but it can be easily adapted and played around with to incorporate other ingredients and tastes.

Easy Egg Fried Rice


For me, egg fried rice is one of the regular dishes I feast on when I order Chinese takeaway on a Saturday night. But it's so simple, cheap and versatile to make yourself. It can be made simply as a side dish (as I've done in these photos) or spruced up to make a meal in its own right.

Pastrami



Recreating those little nuggets of deliciousness that you can usually only get from expensive delis is so satisfying - especially since you can put your own spin on it. And since I moved to my new house, charcuterie like salami and prosciutto is a little more difficult as I no longer have the right environmental conditions to air dry. Luckily I can still play around with making things like roasted peppers and rillettes.
