Crazy Monkey Brownie Baked Alaska

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

When my dad was growing up, my granddad took him and his brothers and sisters to Dublin Zoo on a cold winter's day. They had brought bags of bananas and monkey nuts to feed the monkeys and were throwing the food over the iced enclosure. One stray banana landed on the ice and suddenly the monkeys realised they could walk across the ice, leading them to charge my granddad and his kids, attacking them for the food. Hence the inspiration for this nutty baked Alaska...

When my girlfriend Sofie was growing up, her grandparents had one of the most amazing vegetable gardens in Sweden, with wild strawberries, and big, bushy apple trees. Huge rhubarb bushes still spring up every year and the last time we visited I made this creamy panna cotta, which is a wonderful way to enjoy some of the summer’s finest rhubarb.

Swedish Cinnamon Buns

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Swedish cinnamon buns, or 'Kanelbulle', were the first thing I learned to bake when I stayed in Sweden. Pearl sugar is sprinkled on top to give it that distinctive finishing touch, but if you can't get your hands on any simply sprinkle a little Demerara sugar to finish.
