Classic Lemon Myrtle Bearnaise

Classic Lemon Myrtle Bearnaise

This is a classic French sauce and it's traditionally made with a vinegar-based reduction flavoured with shallots, tarragon and chervil, enriched with egg yolks and butter! A simple substitution of Lemon Myrtle for the tarragon and chervil gives a stunning result. This classic Bearnaise sauce is divine with seafood, eye fillet, asparagus spears, egg dishes (it's the sauce on top of Eggs Bearnaise or Eggs Florentine), chicken or even just over some lovely steamed veggies. Whisking in the eggs is the part that can be tricky - but prac5tice makes perfect - and this is so good you'll want to...

Persian style Turkey and Rice Pilaff with Native Herbs

Persian style Turkey and Rice Pilaff with Native Herbs

This is such a lovely dish we created to use all the turkey that was left, that we cooked at Christmas. Like most people we cooked way more than could be eaten on the day because we love to keep eating it over a few days - whether it's simply on toast with lashings of butter or used in a dish like this. It is so good! It's the sort of recipe you'd expect from Yotam Ottolenghi - it's a fusion of Middle Eastern and what we think of as Persian spices, but of course we have subverted this to use...
