  • Add any remaining garlic butter to the potatoes, then return to the oven until crispy. 

Parmesan Crisps


1 small handful of grated Parmesan


Line a baking tray with baking paper, then divide the Parmesan into two small, round piles. 

Bake at 190 for 6 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. 

Allow to coo, before removing from the paper. 


chocolate orange Tiramisu

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • 200ml of double cream
  • 100g of mascarpone
  • 1x orange
  • 2tsp of caster sugar
  • 1tbsp of hot chocolate mix dissolved in 70ml of water
  • 100g of lady finger biscuits
  • 1tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1tbsp of grated dark chocolate


  1. Put the double cream and sugar into mixing bowl and whish until semi-whipped. Add mascarpone, orange zest and fold together.
  2. Pour the dissolved hot chocolate into a shallow dish and add orange juice. Dip in a few of the sponge fingers at a time, turning for a few seconds until they are nicely soaked, but not soggy. Layer these in a dish until you’ve used half the sponge fingers, then spread over half of the creamy mixture.
  3. Using the coarse side of the grater, grate over most of the dark chocolate. Then repeat the layers, finishing with the creamy layer.
  4. Cover and chill for a bit to firm up (you can speed it up by whipping a bit more firmly). Will keep in the fridge for up to two days. 
  5. To serve, dust with the cocoa powder and grate over the remainder of the chocolate.
