Ribollita

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Ribollita is an Italian soup that was traditionally seen as peasant food. The great thing about this soup is that it makes an ideal base for any additional ingredients that you might want to add. Think of it as an opportunity to give a last moment of glory to any miserable veggies left at the bottom of your fridge! I keep leftover Parmesan rinds in my freezer, which I add to sauces and soups like this to give a unique rich flavour. Add a couple while the soup is simmering and simply fish them out before serving.

Whoopie Pies

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

During my search for the perfect whoopee pie, I was sent this recipe by a reader of my blog, whose mother in law, Mrs Linda Daunt, has lived all her life in Maine, New England and is a fantastic cook. Mrs Daunt's special touch is to add buttermilk instead of regular milk, to give the pies a richer taste. The original recipe uses a marshmallow-type filling, but I prefer to stick with regular buttercream frostings.

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.

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

Beef in Black Bean Sauce

This is a classic Chinese dish, but I like to add lots of fresh ingredients to make this even more of a meal.
