It cooks really quickly so you won’t be in the kitchen for ages preparing this dish. Serve with your favourite potato side or cauliflower gratin, green vegetables or a leafy salad.

Fattoush is a delicious and flavour-packed Middle Eastern salad of toasted pita bread and chopped vegetables tossed through a vibrant vinaigrette dressing. This ubiquitous salad is everyday fare in Israel & other parts of the Middle East. It reminds me of Panzanella but with a different flavour profile and I’m rather obsessed with it. It can happily be eaten on its own or with a plethora of other dishes as part of a mezze feast.

This creamy chicken dish with ravioli and spinach is an easy weeknight supper recipe. Use store-bought ravioli to make it even easier (either four-cheese ravioli or spinach & ricotta). You could also make this with any short pasta such as rigatoni, fusilli or penne. When onion, garlic, butter, white wine, basil, cream and Dijon are combined, it can only mean good things. The spinach ramps up the vegetable component and melts into the creamy sauce.

I took my favourite lamb shank recipe and slowly braised the shanks in red wine, rosemary & bay until they were fall-off-the-bone delicious. I draped a sheet of buttery puff pastry over it all and turned it into a showstopping pie. This is the best lamb shank pie and feeds four people generously. You can keep the shank bones in to serve as pie birds and give your pie an impressive effect, or simple shred the meat into the sauce and do a more classic pie topping or pastry lattice. These could also easily be turned into individual pies with the shank bone protruding out. Just divide the meat and sauce evenly between 4 pie dishes. This is the perfect dish for Easter feasting
