A crunchy deep crust of herb-flavoured breadcrumbs ensures a succulent roast beef. It's roasted with a selection of root vegetables and served with a rich gravy, made using the pan juices.

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.

Prunes and currants tossed with salted, roasted almonds, creme de cassis and mint is the stuffing for my rolled lamb roast. It's a very easy way to dress up a lamb roast for Christmas or Easter. The simple herb rub adds just the right amount of seasoning along with fresh garlic inserted into the top of the roast. My balsamic basil fig sauce creation drizzled over the sliced lamb is the perfect finishing touch and extremely flavourful thanks to the fresh basil.

Pork and prunes is a classic French combination, and here it is given an extra flavour boost with stem ginger and fresh orange. Cooked with a variety of vegetables it makes an easy roast meal and can be prepared ahead and kept in the fridge ready for cooking.

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.

The Elizabethans made lavish use of spices and fruits in their cooking. This turkey dish combines some typical flavours of the time in a rich, sweet stuffing that complements lean, low-fat turkey breast meat. You could add the stuffing under the skin of a turkey breast crown.

This is a great alternative for Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner. The lamb is easy to prepare and tastes fabulous. Enjoy with roast potatoes and a side of veg.

This dish is simple, elegant and very tasty. It's a great way of getting omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. Roasted salmon is topped with caramelised leeks and carrots. Serve for dinner with rice, potatoes or pasta.
