roast chicken & italian sausage with herbs and orange

roast chicken and italian sausage tray bake

I seem to have been on a roast chicken mission recently born mainly out of a desire to clear out my freezer stocks. I have 3 freezers – one chest, which seems to reach maximum capacity very quickly. I hate wasting food so freeze any scrap of leftovers I can. This on top if being a food stylist where any excess shoot food that is freezable gets tossed in.

roast chicken with stout, rosemary and honey

I’ve taken my all time favourite roast chicken recipe which I’ve made using whole birds and chicken pieces and adapted it using stout instead of wine or verjuice. I really dont know how to make a more succulent roast chicken. I played around with the seasonings to better compliment the beer, and it turned out to be utterly delicious. The onions and carrots – which roast slowly with the chicken, and the honey add a much needed sweet element to offset the bitterness of the stout. The beer adds a rich savoury flavour to the sauce – which is plentiful, and reduces to a delicious jus to serve with the meat. Its so delicious you will grab a spoon and sip it like a broth.  Continue Reading →

cappuccino à la rose

How to make a Cappuccino à la rose

I received my new Nespresso machine last week and its been a while since I was this excited about an appliance. The possibilities are endless and include tea. The recipes are thus endless and for me to have such high quality coffee at the touch of a button, I am thrilled.

This is a recipe I fell in love with on their amazing coffee creations website and its called the Cappuccino à la rose. It has white chocolate and rosewater included – I mean how dreamy. If you want to get really fancy you can crystalise a few rose petals and sprinkle these on top.

I made a little video on how to make it: Continue Reading →
