A vegetarian alternative. Goat's cheese and vegetables are wrapped in a puff pastry case and baked until golden. All the filling ingredients have approximate weights as your own personal taste really does make a difference. This is a great recipe to experiment with though.

This is the perfect roast turkey recipe. The maple butter adds a touch of sweetness that is just divine, while the apple brandy adds a secret something to the gorgeous gravy. A family favourite! Substitute 2 teaspoons dried marjoram if fresh marjoram is not available.

A traditional fish dish from Russia, this is made with poached salmon, rice and mushrooms. The updated version here uses crisp filo rather than the usual puff pastry. As all the preparation can be done ahead of time, a koulibiac is an ideal dinner party dish. All it needs with it are some colourful steamed vegetables.
