Ham Hock, Spinach and Cheese Crêpes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Whenever I visit Paris, one of the first things I always order is a 'crêpe avec jambon et fromage'. This recipe is my little twist on that – it makes vibrant green pancakes that are really nice as a brunch or lunch dish. Ham hock is a cheap and tasty alternative to prime slices of ham.

The coleslaw should last 2-3 days if kept in the fridge.

Chinese Five-spice Pork Belly

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Crispy crackling and tender pork belly meat paired with Chinese five-spice powder – a match made in heaven. For just the tiniest amount of work in the kitchen, using an inexpensive piece of meat, you get the most amazing results, which will feed a crowd. There are many different things you can do with pork belly as it’s quite versatile, but I like the simplicity of this method; it’s a nod to Asia, where this is an incredibly popular cut of meat.

I love to make these muffins for breakfasts and brunches; they are quite filling and a nice start to the day. You could add berries, chopped apple or stir through chocolate chips for an extra hit of sweetness.

Big Do's peach and blackberry cobbler

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

My granddad Do used to keep me and my cousins entertained all summer long on his boat with fishing, crab races and stories about pirates, deep-sea treasure and the biggest fish he ever caught! He liked his food, but never cooked – on our summer adventures with him, we were always under strict orders to bring sandwiches! One day, I caught him sitting below deck slurping peaches in syrup from the tin, one of his favourite after-lunch treats, so this recipe is dedicated to him!

Zingy Thai Fishcakes

These might sound complicated but if you have all the ingredients, all it takes is to blitz everything until smooth, stir through a little spring onion and green beans, fry them and serve for the most delicious little Asian taster!
