my top 10 recipes for 2016

Last year and the year before I started doing a round-up of what I thought the best recipes for the year on DrizzleandDip.com were. I mean I’m the one who eats all this food so I should know. It’s always quite tricky to pick only ten because I cook and bake a lot of food in a year, but these are the recipes I’ve made again and will continue to do so in the future. They are my big keepers, and I think you will love them too. You can check out my best recipes for 2015 and 2014 if you like too.

2016 was a difficult year for many and it was a dreadful year on the global political landscape. I know a lot of people cant wait to kick it into touch. Personally it was another goodie for me where I got to go on two BIG food travel adventures. First to Israel – for a life changing food tour, and then to Bangkok and Vietnam for more food and travel fun. I was blessed with an abundance of work and potential opportunities that I have only dreamed of. I was able to turn down work I didn’t really like and spend more time on the projects I really loved. This is pretty much my biggest career goal, to do more of what I love and less of the bill-paying stuff. I worked with a few spectacular clients and hung out with amazing people. There was a LOT of fun.

Of course I ate too much food and drank far too much wine, so 2017 is going to have to look a little healthier, but in the meantime these are my top 10 recipes for the year.

I hope you enjoy them, thanks for popping by and I wish you the happiest New Year imaginable.

my top 10 recipes for 2014

I absolutely loved this year for so many reasons and not least of all because I got to cook and bake some incredible things. The one thing you can’t transfer in an image and a blog post is the taste of a dish, so I thought I’d share what my tastiest and favourite recipes for 2014 were. Recipes I have either made again or very much intend to.

chickpea and chorizo tapas with sherry

This dish is definitely one of the tastiest and easiest to make with mostly store cupboard staples. A perfect tapas to share with crusty white bread or toast.

My love for bread baking has intensified this year, and these black squid ink brioche buns were a highlight for me. Drop dead gorgeous looking with a beautiful soft texture. The salmon burger is packed with flavour and topped with crunchy greens. I’m super proud of this recipe.

I mastered steamed buns this year and tweaked my ginger beer pulled pork recipe by adding hoisin sauce and cooking it in a slow cooker for unbelievable results. I made this the other day again for a friends party and everyone went mad. Continue Reading →
