Silk road bulghur salad or transcaucasian delight
The bright colours and
bursting flavours of this salad are particularly welcome on a drizzly day. The
pomegranate seeds look like jewels, and the dark green of the herbs is accented

Fast cooked flattened chicken
I like recipes that work, recipes that you can follow with confidence and get the result that has been described.  Flattened chicken is one of those. It is a recipe by Marcella Hazan, with a dash of eccentricity by me. It is a spatchcocked chicken with a li...
