Cajun Spatchcock Chicken

The combination of spices here is so tasty, but if you don't have them all, don't be afraid to try dried herbs instead or even fresh herbs if you have some available.

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.

Mojito

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

People panic a little bit about the measurements for cocktails, but it really is a case of making them to taste and remembering simple rules like one part alcohol to three part mixer for each person. Then just add the flavours! Get your hands on some fresh summer mint for these babies – it's one of the easiest herbs to grow, so just pick up a plant in the garden centre and pop it in a pot for fresh mint all summer long!

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!

Caramelised Banana Pancakes

I love making American-style pancakes for breakfast and this version is particularly delicious. It is perfect for special occasions!

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.
