    These little bread rings, Jewish in origin, are delicious teamed with savoury fillings such as smoked salmon and a soft cheese, or egg and salad. The double cooking method – first by briefly poaching in boiling water, then baking – gives bagels their unique soft crumb and slightly chewy crust.

    The trick is to boil before baking! This makes an excellent batch of plain bagels that you can enhance with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.

    This cake uses ground almonds to replace the flour usually found in cakes. Be careful when preparing the almonds in a food processor because electric machines bring out the oil in nuts. Whizz a handful at a time.

    A moist apple cake that is perfectly spiced with cinnamon. There's no dairy in this recipe. Use a mild-flavoured vegetable oil for best results, such as rapeseed or sunflower. The oil is what helps to keep this cake deliciously moist.

    This recipe never fails for me and is well worth the time it takes to make. If you prefer your bread to be a little sweeter, you could double the sugar.

    Chakchouka (or Shakshouka) is a Tunisian dish of tomatoes, onions, pepper, spices and eggs. It's popular throughout North Africa and Israel. It is usually eaten for breakfast or lunch, but it's tasty anytime! Serve with crusty bread.
