Hello, hello, hello! Last weekend I decided to attempt roasting a chicken for the first time. Some more experienced home cooks out there might be scoffing, wondering what all the fuss is about. But I have never roasted a chicken before. In fact if I cook chicken in the oven it tends to be in… Continue reading Polly’s Roast Chicken (GF, lactose free – optional)

Andrew’s Chicken Cacciatore (GF, DF)

Hello, hello, hello! I’m back! I’m finally back! I have internet and I’m back! I also hope to do a photo shoot of the new place quite soon.

It’s a group for people who want to teach and learn new recipes, which can be snacks, desserts, mains – whatever we like!

Murgh Makhani, Butter Chicken (G/F)

So begins our exploration of mains and savouries! But it should start with a bang, I think, not to mention a time-honoured classic! I picked this butter chicken recipe out of a fantastic cookbook by the Australian Women’s Weekly because it seemed so perfect for the starting main. It was simple, cheap to make, and flavoursome!
