Open Aromatic Duck Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

A great starter or buffet option, from Donal Skehan's Kitchen Hero series

Ultimate Mexican baked eggs

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

I make these eggs in the morning whenever we’ve had any late-night guests who decided to stay over. They make a really funky and filling brunch.

Vodka Penne

A quick and delicious pasta dish.

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.

Chorizo, Rocket and Red Onion Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Chorizo is one of my favourite ingredients to use, it provides really delicious smoky flavours and, when fried, renders the most amazing red oil. One of the first few times I visited London, I got myself down to world-famous Borough market where you can pick up some of the best Spanish chorizo outside Spain. This salad is nicest if you can get your hands on some really good-quality chorizo – you will generally find the best stuff in Spanish specialty food shops.

Soy and Ginger Sea Bass and Asian Green Parcels

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

These little parcels certainly know how to make an entrance. When you serve them, make sure you get your guests to open the parcels themselves, to reveal the steaming mackerel inside. You can use this method with any fish; it’s nice served with a little rice.

Blackberry and Apple Crumble

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Crumble has to be one of the easiest desserts to prepare and it is extremely easy to adapt, using whatever fruit is in season.

Green Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Great with Arun Kapil's Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Algier Aïoli.
