        •   2-3 skinless chicken breasts

    Teriyaki Sauce (or use your favorite store-brought brand):

        •  1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
    1/4 cup rice vinegar can substitute with gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version
    3 Tablespoons honey
    1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    1 garlic clove finely minced
    2 Tablespoons corn starch + 3 tablespoons water or more as needed


        • 1 large ripe golden pineapple peeled, cored and cut into wedges
    1 pound fresh asparagus spears trimmed & drizzled with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt & pepper to taste
    1 head (4-5 cups) romaine lettuce dried and chopped
    2 ripe avocados sliced
    1 cup croutons

    Caesar Dressing:

        • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
    2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons reserved teriyaki sauce
    1 teaspoon anchovy paste near the tuna section
    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    2 garlic cloves minced
    2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    salt and pepper to taste

    Optional Toppings:

        • grated parmesan cheese

Remove and cut into slices. Cook chicken for 6 to 7 minutes per side and brush with sauce 2-3 times. Chicken is done when the meat is firm, and juices run clear. Remove, allow to cool slightly, and cut into strips. Brush with the remainder of sauce.
    3. Make the dressing - While the chicken is cooking, make the Caesar Dressing: In a bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, reserved 2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce, anchovy paste, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and garlic and whisk together until smooth. Stir in cheese and add salt and pepper to taste. (Can make ahead the night before and store covered in the fridge).
    4. To assemble - Just before serving, add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Drizzle in the desired amount of salad dressing, add croutons and gently toss to combine. Top with grilled chicken, more Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley, if desired.

    NOTES: * For an oven quicker an easier option, feel free to use your favorite ready made teriyaki sauce and caesar dressing if desired.

    Roast Rack of Pork with Wild Garlic Stuffing

    A showstopping pork dish that's a great Sunday lunch for a crowd, the trim from the rack makes a flavourful stuffing, infused wtih wild garlic or use a combination of spinach and garlic.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 30 minutes
        •    Cook time: 2 hours 30 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 8


        •   3kg Rack of Pork
        •   1 tbsp sea salt, ground to a powder

    For the Stuffing:

        •   1 tbsp olive oil
        •   1 onion, finely chopped
        •   2 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
        •   1 onion, finely chopped
        •   slice of sourdough, crust removed, torn into little pieces
        •   ½ tsp fennel seeds
        •   ½ tsp coriander seeds
        •   ½ tsp chilli flakes
        •   the trim from the Pork, minced (or use 400g pork mince)
        •   nutmeg, for grating
        •   the trim from the Pork, minced (or use 400g pork mince)
        •   zest ½ lemon
        •   1 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
        •   70g wild garlic, chopped
        •   1 egg


    1. In the morning before you cook the pork, use a very sharp knife (or ask the butcher) to cut a deep flap under the skin and fat of the meat, all the way along the rack – be sure to leave at least 5cm connected. Rub the powdered sea salt all over the flesh (not the skin), then leave uncovered in the fridge for at least 2 hrs. Take out of the fridge 30 mins before you want to cook it, to come to room temperature. Heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 9.
    2. Meanwhile, make the stuffing. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the onion, a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, and the thyme leaves. Cook over a low heat, stirring, until the onion has softened, about 10 mins. Add the sourdough 2 mins before the end. Remove from the heat and transfer the mix to a bowl.
    3. In a dry frying pan, toast the fennel and coriander seeds and chilli flakes over a high heat for 1-2 mins. Allow to cool, then use a pestle and mortar to grind with a pinch of sea salt.
    4. Add the ground spices to the onion mixture and mix with the pork trim. Season again, grate in some nutmeg to taste, and add the lemon zest, parsley and wild garlic. Mix everything together with your hands to thoroughly combine, then add the egg and mix again.
    5. Press the stuffing into the flap in the pork and tie up with string all the way along to hold the stuffing in. Use foil to cover any exposed stuffing, as it will burn in the hot oven. Place the joint on a baking tray.
    6. Cook the pork for 20 mins per 450g – so 2 hrs 20 mins for a joint this size. Start it off on 240C/220C fan/gas 9 for 20 mins, then reduce the heat to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and cook for 2 hrs. Turn it halfway through to ensure it’s cooking evenly and test it 10 mins before the end with a temperature probe. When the core reads 70C, it’s cooked. Wrap the pork in foil and leave to rest while you prepare your side dishes.
