Dry brine for moist roast chicken for 1.5kg

1 tablespoons Morton's kosher salt with 1 teaspoon of baking powder in a bowl
pat your chicken dry with paper towels
Generously sprinkle it on all surfaces with the salt mixture by picking up the mixture between your thumb and fingers
shower down over the surface of the chicken for even coverage
refrigerate uncovered for 12 to 24 hours.
Without rinsing, roast using one of our recipes, omitting any additional salting steps called for in those recipes.
Dry-brining for more than 24 hours will produce even more juicy and well-seasoned meat. To brine longer than 24 hours, loosely cover chicken with plastic wrap or cheesecloth before refrigerating to prevent excess moisture loss through evaporation.

Perfect soft boil egg

450g water
2 eggs from fridge
18cm saucepan
1. Remove 2 eggs from fridge and put aside. Measure 450ml of water and place into a 18cm saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Once water is boiling, turn off the heat and place eggs into the water. You can use a spoon to lower the eggs gently into the water, one at a time. Place the lid on.
3. Using a cloth/dishtowel (which has been folded several times like in photo), tilt the pan slightly (ie place the cloth under the saucepan so it tilts slightly) so that the egg is submerged 75% in the water.
4. Start your stopwatch or set the timer for 12 minutes. Leave eggs to sit in water for 12 minutes, then remove and serve with condiments of your liking. Perfect eggs everytime!

Perfect scramble egg

3 large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons whole milk (1/2 tablespoon for each egg)
1 3/4 teaspoons potato starch or cornstarch (1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon for each egg)
Salt to season
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 tablespoon for each egg)
First, crack 3 eggs into a medium bowl.
Then, in a separate cup or bowl, evenly whisk together the milk and cornstarch until it's lump-free
Add the milk and cornstarch mixture to your eggs, and beat until smooth. Season with salt.
Heat a non-stick skillet over high heat until hot, then add the butter (should sizzle right away). Wait until the butter’s melted and bubbly, but before it browns…
Add the beaten eggs. Wait for 3 seconds without stirring anything, until the edges of the eggs start to bubble up…
Then remove the skillet from the heat and start stirring the eggs, making 1 full circle per second… 1, 2, 3…. 4, 5, 6, 7…8, 9, 10, 11…(If you use a mini skillet instead of a large one, it may need a few more seconds)... For about 11 to 12 seconds. The eggs will have absorbed all the butter, but remain partially undercooked (add about 5 seconds more to every 3 extra eggs you’re scrambling, but I wouldn’t do more than 6 at once).

Aglio Olio4 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
3 piece dried red-pepper
1/2 pound mushroom
3/4 tsp salt
300g of spaghetti
1/4 tsp fresh coarsely ground black pepper
mixed herb
Optional: prawn, white mushroom, turkey ham/bacon, parmesan
Ham and Tomato Spaghetti, add CHICKPEAsauted one clove garlic, boil with 2 can whole tomatoes, add 2 piece ham, add half cooked spaghetti (200g), black pepper
Chickpea tipcook, freeze chickepea in one layer, put into freezer bag
Tomato Water Spaghetti

4 ripe tomatoes, large dice
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
340g spaghetti or any pasta you like
10 cloves of garlic
1 cup basil, cut into ribbons
85g butter, cut into three chunks
Olive oil, as needed
- Season the tomatoes with the salt and toss them well.
- Put a big pot of water on to boil.
- Smash the garlic with the flat side of a knife, give it all a few rough chops with the knife and set them a side in a small bowl.
- Take a pinch of basil ribbon, chop it finely, and add it to the tomatoes to season the water.
- Cook your pasta, drain it, and oil the pasta to keep it from sticking to itself.
- Heat a teaspoon or two of olive oil, add the garlic and cook it till it is just beginning to brown around the edges and soften, a couple minutes.
- Pour the tomatoes into a strainer or colander over the garlic so that the tomato water will stream into the pan below. Set the strainer with the tomatoes into the bowl so they don’t drip on the counter, and swirl the sauce to bring it to a simmer. Add the butter while continuing to swirl or stir the sauce. Keep the sauce moving until all the butter is melted. Add the pasta and toss to coat the pasta evenly. Divide the pasta among four bowls and top with the tomatoes and basil.
Spicy tomato sauce1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium (or a few small) Spanish onion(s), chopped to yield 2 1/2 cups
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (If you are sensitive to heat, just use a pinch and adjust at the end. The 1/2 teaspoon makes for a seriously spicy sauce.)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano (optional — I didn’t use. I love dried oregano, but I don’t always love it in tomato sauce.)
1 cup vodka
2 (28-ounce) cans peeled plum tomatoes
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 pound penne pasta or whatever shape you like
4 tablespoons fresh oregano (I used basil)
1/4 to 1 cup heavy cream
grated Parmigiano or Pecorino
Spicy sausage penne, serves 2

113g regular or whole wheat penne
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
22g smoked pork sausage, such as Andouille, sliced into coins
340g frozen or fresh vegetables
1 heaping teaspoon whole ground or Creole mustard
80g heavy cream, or more to taste
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
Bring a pot of heavily salted water to a boil and cook the penne until al dente.
Scoop out 1/4 cup of cooking water and then drain the noodles.
Return the noodles to the pot and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the sausage and cook until some fat begins to render and the sausage begins to turn golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to the pot of noodles. Give the the fat in the skillet in a minute or so to get smoking hot again, then add the vegetable mix and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Sauté the vegetables until tender.

Pour the noodles and sausage into the hot skillet with the vegetables, followed by the mustard and heavy cream. Bring the liquid to a boil and cook until the cream has thickened. Taste and adjust seasonings.

For leftovers, stir in the reserved cooking water and reheat in a skillet or microwave until warmed through.
