    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.

    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.
