The occupation of being a chef has been around for hundreds of years but has only become a more renowned and accepted profession in recent years, gaining considerably more respect. But this new-found recognition comes with great responsibilities, not only to clients and staff, but to food and the food industry itself. So what does it mean to run an ethical kitchen, and what does that have to do with you?
Mi Casa frontman and restauranteur J’Something shows us how to cook the ultimate roast leg of lamb for the whole family. It’s perfect for Sunday lunch! And if you want to see more of J’Something in action in our kitchen, click here.
It may look like a simple dish, and it will only take you 20 minutes to whip together, but the flavour combinations of this recipe are not only perfectly balanced, but complex as well. With an allium flavour from the onion and garlic, the tang of the tomatoes and capers, not to mention a bit of bite from the chilli, our spicy calamari pasta is one dish you’ll go back to over and over.
Making pasta at home is one thing every foodie should be able to do, and it’s easier than you could ever imagine. And you don’t even need a pasta machine, just a deft hand with a rolling pin and a sharp knife. We start you off easy with home-made tagliatelle and a deliciously creamy meat-free sauce.
