  • – ½ cup plain flour
  • – Salt and pepper
  • – Vegetable oil for frying

For the Sauce:

  • – ⅔ cup hot pepper sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot®) 
  • – 1 shallot, diced
  • – 2 cloves of garlic, crushed and roughly chopped
  • – ½ cup cold unsalted butter 
  • – 1 ½ tablespoons white vinegar 
  • – ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper 
  • – ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder 
  • – salt to taste 
  • – 1tbsp of veg oil


For the Chicken:

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and massage the garlic clove in. Dap in the mixture of breadcrumbs and flour.
  3. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and heat about one inch of oil up.
  5. Fry the chicken until golden brown on each side, toss in sauce and serve immediately.

For the Sauce:

  1. Add a splash of oil into a small sauce pan and sauté onion and garlic for few minutes.
  3. Combine the hot sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt in a pot and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer while stirring with a whisk.
  5. As soon as the liquid begins to bubble on the sides of the pot, remove from heat, stir with the whisk, and set aside for use.


Ingredients – Serves 3:

  • – 2 medium red onions 
  • – olive oil 
  • – 6 Jacob’s crackers, or 4 slices of bread 
  • – 400 g quality lean minced beef 
  • – 1 large free-range egg 
  • – 30 g Parmesan cheese
  • – 50g of grated cheddar


  1. Peel and finely chop the onions. Put a splash of olive oil into a large frying pan on a low heat and add your onions. Fry for 10 minutes or until the onions have softened, then put to one side to cool completely.
  3. Blitz your crackers or bread (remove the crusts first) in a food processor until you get a fine consistency. Oil a clean baking tray and put aside.
  5. Put the cooled onions into a large bowl with the rest of the burger ingredients. Use clean hands to scrunch the mixture together well, then divide into 3-4 equal balls for burgers and 18 equal balls for sliders. 
  7. Wet your hands and roll the balls into burger-shaped patties about 2cm thick. Place your burgers or sliders on the oiled baking tray and pat with a little olive oil. Cover them with clingfilm and put the tray into the fridge for at least an hour, or until the patties firm up.
  9. If using a frying pan or griddle pan, put it on a high heat now and let it get hot. However, you decide to cook your burgers, they’ll want around 3 or 4 minutes per side – you may have to cook them in batches if your pan isn’t big enough.

Jan’s Overnight Brioche

Ingredients – Serves 8:

For the tangzhong:

  • – 2tbs(18g) bread flour
  • – 60g milk
  • – 25gwater

Tangzhong is an Asian technique using a type of water roux in baking to improve the texture of a bread.


  • – 180g lukewarm milk
  • – 20g fresh yeast
  • – 30g sugar
  • – 415g bread flour
  • – 7g salt
  • – 1 egg
  • – 1 egg yolk
  • – 45g unsalted butter


Make the Tangzhong:

  1. Mix all of the tangzhong ingredients in a pan until there’s no lumps. Place the pan over low heat, instantly stirring until thickened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Cool down completely.

Make the Dough:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the lukewarm milk (around 37C), yeast and sugar. Cover with a towel and let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until foamy. Reserve.
  3. Whisk the flour and salt in the bowl of your stand mixer.
  5. Start the mixer on low, fitted with the paddle attachment. While running, add the yeast mixture. Let it run for a few seconds before adding the tangzhong, followed by the egg and egg yolk. Mix until a shaggy dough forms.
  7. Remove the paddle attachment and change to the hook attachment.
  9. Start kneading and add the butter, one tablespoon at a time. Do not add the next tablespoon until the first one is fully incorporated.
  11. Once all the butter is incorporated, let the stand mixer knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  13. Form a ball with the dough and place it in a greased bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and place it in a warm spot (like your oven, turned off) for 1 to 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  15. Gently punch the dough to deflate it. Using a bench knife, portion the dough into 8 equal pieces, about 95g each. Form the dough portions into small balls and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, making sure they have space to double in size. Cover with the towel and let it rise again, for up to 1 hour or until puffy.
  17. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F for at least 15 minutes.
  19. Brush the buns with egg wash (1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water), then bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  21. Remove the buns from the oven and immediately brush them with the melted butter. Allow them to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely
