    My mother used to make this all the time, usually to go with Sunday dinner. I was hooked. Haven't had it in ages and I was wanting to bake something special for a special someone so I asked mum for the recipe. Tried it out today, and it's just as I remember. The thing that makes it for me is the frangipane. Hope you like it as much as me.

    In a traditional coq au vin, the liver and blood of the rooster would be incorporated into the sauce at the end of cooking to make it richer and more flavourful. Here, I replace blood and liver with tomato passata for a beautiful, tasty sauce, that is easy to make! I also use chicken thighs instead of a rooster, it is easier to find and more tender.

    Light and delicate French macaroons, or macarons - are impressive, deliciously moreish and actually not at all hard to make! This four-in-one recipe takes one macaroon base and turns it into four different flavours - lemon, pistachio, chocolate and strawberry.
