Moussaka

From: Today

This is all the more delicious with the introduction of feta cheese, which is undoubtedly one of the most famous Greek cheeses. The salty, tangy flavour of feta pairs beautifully with the rich lamb sauce and is crumbled over the béchamel sauce. This dish is best prepared and cooked the day before; allow the flavours to infuse and then reheat the next day.

Pork Pibil with Red Onion Pickle

From: Today

I always try and make Pork Pibil a day or two in advance as the longer the meat rests in the juices the tastier it gets. It is perfect for freezing and it tastes much better after a few days. It is tradition to serve it on warm corn tortillas with a topping of red onion pickled. If you do not have a pressure cooker, place all ingredients in an ovenproof casserole with a lid. Cook it covered in the oven at 160 degrees for 2.5 to 3 hours or until the meat falls apart.

Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup with Ham

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I like to use leftover ham hock in this soup, but you could use shop-bought or even bacon would work well. This soup keeps well for 2-3 days in the fridge. It can also be frozen for up to 1 month, but it may need to be blitzed with a hand blender when reheating, as it may split.

Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice and Dill Pickle Shavings

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Traditionally this was served with buttered noodles, not unlike tagliatelle, but it is so much nicer with fluffy rice. The soured cream is not strictly necessary, and regular cream will work just as well.

Blackberry and French Cream Tart

From: Today

Serve with whipped cream and a little brown sugar!

Baked Haddock

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you want to get ahead, the fish can be prepped and set aside in the fridge until it's ready to go into the oven.

Salmon Burger

Great when you're entertaining.

Stir Fried Ginger Pork

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great way to prepare green vegetables. Stir-frying keeps their crunch while the hot sauce gives them a rich, almost nutty flavour. Choose one or a selection of the wide range of greens now readily available, such as tender stem broccoli, sugar snap peas, French beans, mangetout, spinach, Swiss chard, Chinese pak choy or choi sum, or even finely shredded cabbage works well.
