    This fish stew, called moqueca, is a very typical Brazilian dish that originated in the Northeast. The palm oil gives it its distinctive flavour.

    How easy is this carrot cake? No grating - everything's mixed in a blender or food processor till smooth. You don't have to use the icing, but try it - it's gorgeous!

    You can make these Mexican flat breads thin or thick, depending on your preference. Great recipe to make with your kids, who can then fill them with whatever they like.

    This is my favourite Caribbean dish which is very well seasoned (a trademark of Caribbean food) and have always enjoyed it as a child. The sauce should not be as thick as a curry and not too watery if that makes any sense. There are many varieties of this dish and is always best served with rice and peas and West Indian pepper sauce.

    The pork used for carnitas is so tender that it just falls apart. That's why a slow cooker is ideal! You could also use this pork filling for tamales, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. Serve with soft flour tortillas, salsa and fresh coriander.
