A really easy chicken curry recipe offering loads of flavour and sauce. Hotter or milder can easily be achieved by varying the curry paste used, or ading extra chillies to the herb marinade.

Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.

A classic french dish that has fallen out of favour over the past 20 years. But it packs so much flavour that it's due for a revival. Serve with crusty bread, potatoes and greens.
