The February issue of Easy Food arrives on shelves this Friday 25th January. Here’s why you don’t want to miss out…
1. Real bread
Is there honestly anything better than the smell of proper bread fresh from the oven? Firehouse Bakery guru Patrick Ryan shares some of his tips and recipes with us, and even teaches us how to make our own sourdough starter.
2. A taste of China
We’re celebrating the Chinese New Year with a bumper feature of really, REALLY tasty dishes. Seriously. Look at the pork recipe on the cover, for cryin’ out loud! That was one good day in the Test Kitchen. (*dreamily stares into the distance)
3. Dumpling DIY
Traditional Chinese dumplings can be tricky to make, so we spent time putting together a step-by-step to make them achievable at home.
4. Free from and fabulous
Allergy-friendly eating is a cinch with these new ideas for egg-, dairy- and gluten-free dinners.
5. Perfect pancakes
With Shrove Tuesday just around the corner, we’ve been flipping out over some seriously gorgeous pancake creations, both sweet and savoury.
6. Date night
We’re not really into Valentine’s Day, but we ARE into any excuse to treat our loved ones and ourselves. Between our special steak dinner and this ultimate chocolate cake, there’s plenty to get you in a romantic mood.
7. Just for one
We’ve concocted the perfect small-batch treat for those chocoholics flying solo this February 14th — or any other evening!
8. Tinned tomatoes
Healthy, versatile, tasty and oh-so-cheap, we’re out to applaud tinned tomatoes as one of the absolute best storecupboard staples out there — and to use them in delicious recipes, of course.
9. Winner, winner, chicken dinner
Quick-fix chicken dinners using just five main ingredients.
10. Protect your heart
Taking care of your heart has never been easier than with these fab recipes.
11. Mushroom magic
We love mushrooms, and so will you with these flavoursome recipes.
12. Get my goat
In her monthly Eat Ireland column, Recipe Editor Jocelyn Doyle checks out Broughgammon Farm and asks why Irish people don’t eat more goat.
13. Cheers, big ears!
We take a closer look at gin, from how it’s made right through to easy recipes for classic cocktails.
14. Take the biscuit
Baking boss Shannon has been filling the biscuit jar with jammy dodgers, bourbon creams and more! Stick the kettle on.
15. Everyday eating
Some days you don’t want anything special, fancy or complicated. Some days you just want a truly tasty dinner that’s on the table in no time (like the carbonara pizza pictured at the very top of this post!). Don’t worry. We got you.
