GRILLED CHEESE WITH BRIE AND PASSION FRUIT JAM

I made these for my cousin Danielle’s bachelorette party and they were a hit. I got two marriage proposals that night because of them. And people were still talking about them for a week after. When entertaining, taking something simple and making it special really […]

BERBERE SPICED LAMB WITH ORANGE COUSCOUS

This is not the traditional Ethiopian dish by any stretch of the imagination. I’m using the berbere spice which is spicy and aromatic and gives the meat such depth of flavour. But using more of an osso bucco method for cooking it. The couscous is […]
