Compote of Raspberries with Sweet Geranium

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

This is a great recipe which can be used all year 'round. I use fresh berries in summer and autumn, and frozen in winter. The geranium leaves for this recipe come from the lemon scented geranium, and they add a highly scented and delicious flavor to the syrup and the fruit. You will find this geranium in a good garden centre and it is well worth having. It can sit outside in a sunny spot in summer and needs to come back in to a sunny windowsill, conservatory or glass house for the winter months. It is immensely useful and I also use it to flavour mousses and soufflés, sorbets, granitas and ice creams. It also pairs beautifully with blackberries and apples, or better still a combination of both of those fruits. I have on occasions replaced the geranium with mint, lemon balm or lemon verbena with excellent results. Serve these berries with Raspberry Fool or Ice Cream or with Chocolate Mousse or Soft Vanilla Meringues.

A Salad of Hard Boiled Eggs with Mayonnaise, Harissa and Chorizo

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

If you do not use all of the chorizo-flavoured oil on the salad, keep it covered in the fridge and use it for frying cooked potatoes or roasting vegetables at a later time. The chilled oil will keep perfectly chilled for several weeks.

Chicken Tostadas

From: Today

Tostadas are the best way to use leftovers of the Sunday roast. Whether you have leftovers of chicken, beef, pork or even lamb, tostadas are the way to use it all up. Just shred the meat and keep it covered in the fridge until you're ready to use it. I normally make a quick salsa from scratch, but if you have a shop-bought one you like, by all means use it. Tostadas are an informal affair, perfect for a party, or a family meal. Serve on plates and have loads of serviettes! If you want a vegetarian version, skip the meat and use pan-fried carrots and potatoes cut into bite-size cubes instead.
