From the same botanical family known as laver in Wales, slouk in Scotland and sloke in Ireland, nori is a type of Japanese seaweed, sold dried in thin, dark-green sheets. The flavour is distinctive and savoury. Nori is usually combined with rice in Japanese cooking, but it is also good with vegetables, particularly potatoes.

Oven-baked crisps are not only healthier than those that are fried, their flavour is fresher and more concentrated too. Here, thin slices of beetroot and potato are baked in a hot oven to make dippers for a spicy South-east Asian mixture. If possible, slice the vegetables with a mandolin to ensure they are all an even thickness.

A Japanese dish of pork cooked in black tea. The tea tenderises the meat and gives a roast pork effect. This recipe should be made in advance and will keep well in the fridge for up to 10 days. It's easy to be suspicious of poaching in tea, but this recipe really works, and is lower in fat than roasting.
