Orange Cranachan – the taste test!

Friday, January 27th, 2012

A few days ago on Burns’ Night we spotted this recipe on Facebook from Focus on Food and liked the sound of it – quick, easy, traditional…It sounded tasty so we gave it a go! Here’s the recipe again and photos from when we made it – plus a little verdict :) Love for the Scottish dessert!


Meal Ticket to Syria – the recipes!

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

As you’ll have seen in the ‘Meal Ticket to Syria’ video, international student at Leeds Met Khaled showed presenter Lewis what Syrian food is all about. Not only did he take Lewis food shopping with him, giving him hints and tips about this Middle Eastern cuisine, but he also cooked him up two traditional dishes too! Here’s how he made them!


For the Mosakhan:
• Chicken breast, sliced
• 1 onion, sliced
• Pomegranate molasses
• Sumac spices
• Oil
• Tortilla wraps

Pasta with prawns, mussels and scallops

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

This is an easy to cook traditional Mediterranean dish the team from Greece did in the Leeds Met International Cook-Off video. All you need is to follow these simple steps from Alina and Anya!


• 200g prawns, peeled and shelled (remove the heads but don’t throw them away!)
• 100g scallops, sliced
• 200g mussels
• Oil
• Garlic, sliced
• Parsley
• 100g of pasta

In preparation, chop some parsley up and leave to one side for later on. Choose a type of pasta to go with the sauce – a short pasta like penne or long pasta like tagliatelle. I advise ‘Fusilli’.
