    Perk up pork with an overnight spicy-citrus marinade. Lightly toasting the cumin seeds and peppercorns in a dry pan turns up the heat on this full-flavoured roast. Serve with black beans and rice for a true Cuban-inspired meal.

    I used to live in Colombia which is the land of large avocados! This was originally my mom's recipe from when I was a kid and I just tweaked it a little. Enjoy!

    A simple and hearty chicken chilli soup, which makes a lovely meal in itself. Chicken is simmered with peppers and cannellini beans in a spicy sauce. Serve on its own, or with rice, jacket potatoes or crusty bread. Use more or less chillies according to how spicy you like it.

    Fresh ripe tomatoes, chillies, onion, garlic and coriander with a splash of lime juice - all you need to make a delightfully refreshing salsa. Adjust the heat level by experimenting with the amount and type of chillies you use. Jalapeños will give the most heat! Use jarred if you can't find them fresh.

    Pao de Queijo is a Brazilian cheese bread made with tapioca flour. They’re puffy and chewy, like Japanese mocha, and perfect finger food, great for dipping! This Brazil recipe is really simple and will not take you long at all. This recipe is also great for coeliacs as tapioca flour is gluten-free.

    In this unusual upside-down cake, juicy slices of mango are topped with a simple, light sponge mixture flavoured with lime zest and coconut. After baking, the cake is turned out so that the fruit is on top, then finished by dredging with icing sugar and caramelising under a hot grill.
