  • hake bake

    A fabulous recipe for low-fat oven-baked fish and chips that uses one pan! This will prove to be a family favourite at the supper table and uses the whole hake in place of cod or haddock fillets, which is a more sustainable fish to use. Children will love its mild taste too.

    Chilli con Carne was introduced to America by the “Chili Queens,” women who served food in San Antonio’s Military Plaza as early as the 1860s.

  • spanish chicken tray bake

    This Spanish-style chicken bake adapted from one by The Hairy Bikers is a one-pot wonder that’s made with juicy chorizo, chicken and veg – perfect for a midweek supper or a weekend alternative to a weekend roast. Because everything cooks together, this really allows the flavours to come together nicely.

  • tortilla de papas
