In Tom Kerridge’s Best Ever Dishes ep.3 is all about dishes for the weekend, when there is a bit more time to enjoy being in the kitchen and cook something extra special to share with family and friends.
Tom turns an ordinary leg of lamb into an extraordinary dish by roasting it wrapped in branches of bay leaves to pack in extra flavour. He wants to shake up Sunday sides so is salt-baking garlic and lemon before stirring it through some wilted greens – much better than boring boiled broccoli. He visits a Malaysian supper club to find out the secrets of authentic Malay-style satay. Inspired by the wonderful flavours, he decides to fuse Asian and British cuisines by creating his own satay roast chicken.
Not everyone gets time off at the weekend, so he decides to cook a brunch for a group of firefighters. An easy one to replicate at home, this is the ultimate English breakfast omelette cooked in one pan. And at the weekends you’ve got to have a special pudding, so Tom does his treacle tart with a few twists to add texture and flavour, which will make it a cut above the norm.
Tom Kerridge’s Best Ever Dishes ep.3 recipes:
1. Super satay chicken
Roast chicken like you’ve never had it before. Try serving this with rice on a Sunday for a lighter, spicier, Indonesian alternative.
2. Tasty treacle tart
Treacle tart is a firm favourite when it comes to puddings and serving it with homemade mascarpone ice cream ramps it up a notch.
3. Ultimate English breakfast omelette
There are times when only a one-pan wonder recipe will do. Whether for breakfast or a quick supper, this is a good one to add to your repertoire.
