I love this chicken dish – it is so Mediterranean and brings back wonderful memories of days spent in Greece, where one meal seems to slowly move into the next almost without notice. There are two keys to this dish: one is the marinade combination, and the second is...
Here is another of those dishes which is just made to share. Tahchin means ‘arranged at the bottom’ and is composed of a crisp saffron-infused rice layered with chicken, youghurt and barberries. You might have a fight on your hands for the bottom (top) layer of rice...

Here is a wonderful roast chicken recipe where the chicken’s juices run into the baguette as it cooks, providing a real depth of flavour and crunch to the dish. The sage, lemon, garlic and artichokes are quintessential Mediterranean flavours and the mustard vinaigrette adds the perfect final touch. This is...
