Porchetta

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

This is definitely one of my favourite recipes in the book. It’s made using pork shoulder, an inexpensive cut that, when cooked in this manner, results in wonderfully tender meat and crispy crackling. If the idea of rolling and stringing up the shoulder around the stuffing is too much, take the stuffing with you to the butcher when you buy the meat and ask for it to be stuffed and rolled for you. Then it’s simply a case of roasting it.

Chocolate Tiramisu

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

A perfect make-ahead dessert just like Italian mamma used to make... Creamy layers wrapped together with coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuits and dark and white shavings of chocolate - it can't be beat!

Florentines

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Florentines are rich and decadent and very simple to make at home. They make a perfect edible gift for Christmas.

Chilli and Lemongrass Chicken

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This is a wonderfully fragrant dish that is very easy to prepare. I use chicken thighs here as they have more flavour, but you can easily use chicken breasts instead. The paste made for the sauce can also be used with beef or pork.

Not unlike a French Potato Dauphinoise, this Swedish take features anchovies and is a regular at the Swedish Christmas table.

Goats Cheese, Red Onion and Thyme Quiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This quiche uses a soft curd goat’s cheese, which is wonderfully smooth and light with clean lemony flavours with hints of flowers and sweetness that develop when pared with the caramelised red onions.
