Sichuan spicy pork and noodles.

Your guide to quick after-work dinners and weekend feasts to cook for family and friends.

Healthy meals that are full of flavour are on the agenda this week. Start your meat-free Monday with a roast pumpkin salad, with hazelnuts and quinoa then move the spicy pork and noodles, veal involtini and light as air spinach and ricotta gnocchi with a crunchy winter salad.

On the weekend, you’ll love a classic roast chicken and a fruit bread recipe that will provide wonderful toast for a week. On Sunday invite family and friends around to share a slow-cooked veal braise with fluffy potato gnocchi and a luscious cherry tart.
