Tamales are one of my all-time favourite foods. This recipe was a staple item on the summer menu of my restaurant in California. Soft spiced dough steamed to perfection in dried corn husks and filled with roasted jalapeños, sweet potato and black beans. What’s not to...

Aubergine and lentil moussaka is a hearty Mediterranean dish. I made this dish for my wedding years ago, so is a special recipe. Vegan version included.
