all-time favourite: Sunday roasts

  • Best Sunday roasts

    From crispy pork belly to slow-cooked beef brisket and tender lamb shoulder, these are our all-time favourite roasts - guaranteed to make Sunday special. Click the images for recipes.


  • Beef brisket with bourbon barbecue sauce

    This one's a favourite with dinner guests. Tender on the inside and crispy on the outside with a little added kick, thanks to the bourbon, paprika and cayenne.


  • Slow-roasted lamb shoulder with brussels sprouts and crispy kale

    You'll win the trophy for most beautiful roast. The contrast of deep browns and vibrant greens is enough to make anyone's tastebuds dance. A lighter option to roast potatoes.


  • Quick-butterflied-roast-chicken

    It's simple, it's quick and it's all in one pan. This butterflied chicken rests on sliced lemons, gently infusing the meat as it cooks. This roast is a mid-week staple in my house!


  • Crispy pork belly with cider pickled pears

    Who doesn't love a roast pork and pear combination! For a slice of Italy, drizzle your crispy pork with lashings of vincotto – made of grapes, it cuts through the richness of the pork.


  • Fennel and herb-crusted salmon with garlic potatoes

    As delicious as it is impressive, if you want to wow your guests with seafood on this will do the trick! Just add a simple crumb topping to a fresh salmon fillet add some tender potato chips and roast away.


  • Roasted spatchocks with port mushrooms and lentils

    This easy one-tray dish is my go-to when I want to cook a roast with minimum effort and maximum flavour. The bed of chorizo and mushroom really gives it that rich taste.


  • Prune-stuffed crispy pork with roasted red cabbage

    Prunes are my secret weapon to giving roast pork that hint of sweetness. A flavourful dish so tender and juicy, I guarantee you'll come back for seconds!


  • Milk-braised dijon chicken

    Not a traditional roast I hear you say, but the addition of some bold-flavoured mustard makes this a chicken dinner that packs a punch.

weekend baker: top five homemade breads

  • weekend baker: top five homemade breads

    I just love the smell of freshly baked bread – it's always better made at home! From seriously simple no-knead rolls to cheesy flatbreads and loaves, a big pumpkin bread or rosemary-infused crunchy knots, these will get you baking!


  • no-knead bread rolls

    This is the no-fuss way to make bread. The secret behind the no-knead process is all about fermentation. Giving it time to rise, instead of kneading it, lets the yeast work wonders. The result? Lovely, airy-textured bread.


  • garlic, sage and blue cheese twisted loaf

    The soft blue cheese mixed in with the garlic and sage offers a punch of flavour you and the family will love. The perfect accompaniment to pizza on a night in.


  • blackcurrant, brussels sprout and cheese flatbread

    Bread doesn't need to be bland. Bring your loaf to life by experimenting with various colours and ingredients. It'll look just like a work art, you almost won't want to eat it!


  • pumpkin, speck and fennel no-knead loaf

    I absolutely adore the unique flavour the pumpkin and speck add to this rustic loaf. It takes me back to the countryside every time I make it.


  • rosemary and provolone seeded knots

    Making these knots takes only a flick of the wrist. Simple, quick and elegant it's like a present for your tastebuds!
