Sweet and savoury treats for the big night: black lime gummy worms, a deep-fried noodle snack with fried peanuts and curry leaves, and pumpkin spice cookiesFor anyone doing the sweet-sweep rounds next weekend, Halloween can feel more like trick and treat, rather than trick or treat.

Anyway, for 2021, I’m going to lean into making Halloween snacks ins...

Hot cross bun bonanza! Ten brilliant recipes – from the perfect classic to prosciutto and parmesan

For the purists, there is Felicity Cloake’s failsafe recipe. But if you want to buck tradition, how about chocolate, cherry bakewell or Marmite?People get awfully territorial about hot cross buns. If you have ever trailed around a supermarket with a hot cross bun purist at Easter, you’ll know what I mean. They’ll spot a bun that dares deviate even slightly from the tried and true hot cross bun blueprint – maybe it’ll have cranberries in it or, God forbid, chocolate – and they’ll act as if they’v...

Hungry for Higher Education

Life has undergone some drastic changes for most of us in the past year. Facing pressure on all sides from rising expenses and a plummeting employment rate, the job market feels especially volatile, especially if you’re the sort of person who wants to do what they’re genuinely passionate about. The good news is that jobs in the food industry are more important than ever, and with so many people changing careers now, this is a great time to invest in further education. Is that even possible to g...

'No respite between holidays!' Hot cross buns' early arrival prompts joy and fury

The debate over when hot cross buns should be sold is almost as much of a tradition in Australia as the Easter treat itselfFor years supermarkets have released hot cross buns well before Easter, and as the yeasted treats arrive, so too does the pro- or anti-bun outrage.“No respite between holidays!” my mum texts me on 3 January, after sighting off-white crosses on New Year’s Day. “Buy buy buy pure consumerism in your face!” She insists she’s only mildly annoyed by the baked good’s drawn-out shel...

Benjamina Ebuehi's Christmas recipe for mini clementine ginger tarts | The sweet spot

The sweetness of clementine curd mellows the hit of fiery ginger in this tasty winter dessert We get through a ridiculous amount of ginger in my house. Whether it’s fresh, crystallised or stem ginger in syrup, it’s such a familiar comfort and makes many appearances in both my sweet and savoury cooking at this time of year. Sometimes I’ll lean in to the fiery heat that ginger can bring, but for desserts I prefer to mellow it out a little with sweetness. Enter sweet clementine curd. Continue readi...

No ginger spice? Here’s how to make your recipes sing without it

A global shortage means supermarkets have all but run out of ginger. We ask some top chefs for their substitutesAs if 2020 were not bad enough already, now we have a global ginger shortage. Output in China, which accounts for almost half the world’s exports, is down, following a bad harvest. Factor in other supply chain failures as a result of the pandemic, and the result is that supermarkets have almost sold out of fresh and ground ginger.But never fear.

17 delicious loaf tin recipes (that aren’t banana bread)

The traditional 2lb baking container isn’t just for using up fruit – you can create everything from paté to panna cottaA traditional 2lb loaf tin does not weigh two pounds, nor does it cost £2 – even the cheapest model will set you back about £2.50. It is called that because it is designed to accommodate 2lb of bread dough – about 900g.So, it is not a size, but a rough measure of capacity – any 2lb loaf tin will hold about 1.5l of water. The shape, however, will vary from tin to tin – some are b...

Microwave cakes and old fish: chefs’ seven most controversial cooking tips

We asked the professionals to give us their most unconventional kitchen suggestions, from omelettes cooked in crisp packets to boiled mushroomsIn June, the chef Jim Fuller caused something of a firestorm when he announced that we have all been cooking mushrooms the wrong way.

5 Common Baking Mistakes Novice Bakers Should Avoid

Baking is as much a science as it is an art. Unlike cooking, there’s a much narrower margin for error when you bake: even the smallest mistake at any stage of the process could cost you dearly.  For example, when you make grilled chicken wings, you don’t have to stick to the exact measurements of a marinade recipe, and you can adjust seasoning as you go.  With baking, it is important to follow the steps accurately, as it is quite hard to correct the common baking mistakes midway thr...
