    This a my family's favourite recipe. We make this satay recipe on the barbeque in the summer and we also like it as a starter to a meal in the winter. The flavour is exceptionally good when cook on a barbeque. It is equally good when the sate are cooked under the grill.

    This is such an easy, but beautiful dessert to serve for company in the summer when fresh berries are in season. Gelatine leaves work better, but powdered gelatine is easier to find generally.

    These duck breasts are the nicest I've ever cooked. And it's also very quick and extremely easy to make. I enjoy serving these duck breasts with roasted seasonal vegetables.

    A simple chocolate mousse is an elegant way to end a meal. Great for parties, cause you can make the mousse well in advance.
