Biryani is the celebratory Indian dish and usually includes meat. This particular recipe comes from Southern India, however, and is vegetarian. It’s very easy to make, looks impressive and scents the room with cinnamon and cardamom.
A summer voyage on the Mediterranean Sea, between Greece and Italy. A risotto with fresh tomatoes, feta cheese and a hint of spice from the rocket that raises both culinary flags side by side.
This is a delicious Greek recipe where the flavours are established by their delicate simplicity. These small Lego style dolmades, vine leaves stuffed with rice (or yialatzi as they are known in Turkish) could easily hold their own in a high class party menu even better than a lot of other common favourites. This is our family version using fresh vine leaves, feathery fennel tops and mint.
