Moroccan honeycomb pancakes.
Moroccan honeycomb pancakes.

Many of our midweek meals feature seasonal vegies, for example, smoked trout salad with grilled zucchini and hazelnuts, a robust roast vegetable pasta sauce, and a Middle Eastern eggplant salad.

On the weekend, invite friends around for a Moroccan feast. Karen Martini's chicken dish is the centrepiece - marinate the meat the night before to enhance the earthy spices. Serve a delicate date cous cous alongside and perhaps a rosewater tipple too. Stephanie Alexander's delicate Moroccan crepes with honeycomb butter and pistachio conclude your evening.

Wind down on Sunday with Mexican comfort foods. Neil Perry's smoky chipotle meatballs pair perfectly with a side of chilli butter-slicked sweetcorn.
