Classically served with steak in a good steakhouse, Chimichurri is an incredible sauce that adds huge flavour to red meat. In fact, it replaces mint sauce for us because the last thing we want to do is cover expensive lamb with sugar, cheap vinegar & mint; we want to taste the lamb!

It would be easy to think the steak is the star of this dish, but we’d argue it’s actually the sauce! Just as a simple buerre noisette can lift any fish dish, this beurre noir gets its name from the addition of a gorgeous balsamic vinegar.

One spice you may not have tried before is Sumac.

Its partner, Za’atar, is Sumac with herbs and spices and both together deliver an incredible and unique flavour. This is …

Like risotto, paella is sometimes thought of as a dark art, when in reality it’s pretty straightforward. Rick Stein once said that when he’d asked ‘how the risotto was’ in a restaurant, the answer was simply ‘we have some excellent stock’.
