The only dilemma is that this time never comes. As the unwatched programmes you've saved gradually mount up, you realise that you only have 5% of space left. This leaves you with the excruciating predicament of what to delete.

This cake idea was inspired by looking at my twitter feed and seeing how many people were preparing for Ramadan this year and the anticipation of Iftar. 'Iftar' which is the meal that is eaten to break fast. Usually starts with a date and some water followed by an array of protein, vegetables, carbohydrates...

Son-in-Law Eggs

These eggs, aptly named son-in-law eggs are a Thai staple and according to research into the name, this dish is apparently a warning from a Mother in law to her 'soon to be' son-in-law, that if he doesn't treat her daughter well then it may not be eggs that will be used the next time she cooks them!

Shelina's Summer Rice Pudding

Shelina Permalloo

Rice pudding purists turn away now. In a break from tradition I like to use basmati rice in this recipe, now my logic for this is basmati rice is a tender long grain rice which has a delicate and almost perfumed taste to it. Coconut milk is fragrant, sweet and perfumed...

Lazy Chicken One Pot Wonder

I initially wanted a chicken soup but then I realised I wanted something a bit more substantial. So I created this dish, which I suppose is a hybrid between a tagine and a light stew. I prepared this dish like a tagine in the sense of layering but added more water to it to create a soupy base.

It's a great dish to serve at a party for a bit of a wow factor, but it's really easy to put together. For those Mauritians out there and for anyone who's holidayed on the island I'm sure this will bring back fond memories so Bon Appetit!

Before I was involved with filming I always assumed that it would be a simple one shot wonder and voila! When you see food prepared on the screen it's really easy to forget the logistics behind filming food - I've since learnt that there's a lot of planning and thought before the shoot and a lot of preparation before each shot.

My Formula for Avoiding Blue Monday

Well if you ask me the whole December/January transition is ridiculous. Being a glutton one minute and then abstaining the next seems like a sure fire recipe for a bipolar episode. Surely we would all be much better off changing our habits in a less drastic fashion? Perhaps we could start a detox in February... or March... maybe July?

I'm at a party and have ended up talking to gastro-bores. Foodies. I can be a bit foody when the mood takes me, but this conversation, lubricated by alcohol and MasterChef, is getting out of control. Predictably, the group are trying to impress each other with wildly implausible meals - stuff they just "whip up" at home. Yeah right.

Delia Got It Wrong: I Am a Master Chef

Stephen M. Baker

Last week, cooking legend Delia Smith made some rather bold claims in the Radio Times; suggesting that people can't cook anymore and that TV shows such as MasterChef are intimidating, rather than inspirational. As an amateur home cook, food lover and cookery show watcher, I beg to differ.
