Marinating requires a little forward planning, but you'll be richly rewarded for the extra effort.

The humble chook is at its best shredded in a fresh Asian salad. You can poach some chicken for the Vietnamese salad, but I like that it is so quick when someone else has done some of the work.

Butterflied and roasted, the humble chook has never tasted so good. Be sure not to overcook the roast chicken; as long as the breast is perfect, you can fix the rest.

This simple method of cooking sprouts in a pan with water is great for any vegetable. Just cook till tender and saute in olive oil as the water evaporates.

I love this method of cooking lamb. It develops a deep, rich flavour and melts in the mouth; aioli is the perfect complement to the rich meat and helps cut the richness a little.

Spicy gochujang paste adds a flavour-cick to this beef stir-fry, which can be served with steamed rice to make a fill meal. Fold through some chopped kimchi at the end to add another dimension.

A staple of Korean cuisine, spicy gochujang paste, ramps up this seafood hotpot. It isn't crazy hot, although it is spicy.

Falling temperatures refocus attention on traditional pleasures - think decadent chocolate desserts. This is more like a mud cake than a traditional chocolate cake.

This winter soup is super quick to make as the legumes are already cooked. A great addition for the soup is pesto or thinly sliced prosciutto folded through.

A simple hunter-style chicken dish is great, as it's just set and forget. All the time is in the slow cooking. I love olives in it, although they're not really traditional.

Soft polenta goes well with any braise. The taleggio gives it a rich and distinctive flavour. If you're not a fan of smelly cheeses, leave it out - but it would be a terrible shame.

This simple chowder gets its thickness from the pureed beans and potato. If you prefer a chunkier soup, don't puree it.

This braised bean dish makes a lovely base for crumbed fish. I've used John Dory, but any thinly sliced fish can be crumbed and fried. Prawns also taste great.

Any thinly sliced fish can be crumbed and fried, and when paired with a great vegie side, dinner is served.

Indulge with this creamy dessert that surprises with a vegetable base. I've used Queensland Blue in this recipe; you can use other pumpkin varieties for this tart, just make sure they're sweet.

You can replace the farro with other grains such as barley, oats or quinoa; boiled wild rice is great, too.
