Here, Peter Gordon shares 3 lovely recipes as a taster of his book. Trust us, salads have never been so interesting.
This crumbed Camembert with apple and mango is the perfect balance of rich, gooey cheese and sweet apple with peppery leaves and radishes. This would be a really smart way to kick off a dinner party and a gorgeous combination of sweet and savoury.
This chilli-roast sweet potato with courgettes, hazelnuts and pears brings together easy roast veg and fresh crunchy greens for a mix of flavours and textures with every mouthful. A sprinkle of fresh chilli and hazelnuts really steps this up.
These crusty baked wasabi mushrooms are perfect for sharing, with stuffed mushrooms layered on top of spinach and finished with grated egg. Everyone can serve themselves from the middle of the table. It’s a super simple recipe that can be ready in just 30 minutes, but it’s also substantial enough to be a meal in itself.
