Roast chicken & roots

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the chicken in a large roasting tin. Remove any trussing elastic and re-tie the chicken’s legs with string, if you like. Rub the lemon juice into the chicken, then rub in 1 tbsp of the oil and sprinkle with the thyme and plenty of seasoning. Roast for 25 mins.

Mix the squash, carrots, parnsips and onion in a bowl with the remaining oil, lemon zest and plenty of ground black pepper, and toss together well.

Take the chicken out of the oven and put on a plate. Scatter the vegetables into the tin, nestling the garlic cloves underneath, then put the chicken on top. Return to the oven for a further 45 mins, turning the veg after 20 mins until the chicken is cooked and the vegetables are tender and lightly browned.

Take the chicken out and place on a warmed platter. Cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 mins. Cook the spinach in a saucepan with a drizzle of water, and season with black pepper. Scatter the vegetables around the chicken and serve with the spinach. Squeeze the garlic out of the skins and smear over the chicken, if you like.

To make your own buns, tip the flour, sugar, yeast and 1 tsp salt into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. With the motor running on medium speed, gradually add the milk, then half the egg. Leave to mix for a few minutes, then add the butter, a little at a time, until the dough is elastic and shiny – about 5 mins. Alternatively, do this in a bowl using an electric whisk.

Divide the dough into four and roll each piece into a round on a lightly floured surface. Arrange well spaced apart on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Press down gently to spread them out a little and leave in a warm place for 2 hrs, or in the fridge overnight, until doubled in size.

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush the remaining egg over the buns and scatter with the sesame seeds, if using. Bake for 13-15 mins until risen and golden. Leave to cool. Can be made up to a day ahead.

For the sauce, stir together all the ingredients and set aside. Can be made up to a day ahead and kept chilled.

To make the burgers, chill the chuck steak in the freezer alongside the blade and, if it fits, bowl of a food processor for 30 mins until the meat is firm but not frozen solid. Working quickly, tip half the chilled beef into the food processor and pulse eight to 10 times until the meat is minced, being careful not to overwork it. Tip the mince onto a tray and repeat with the remaining steak, then mix both lots together with ½ tsp salt. Divide into four portions and gently form each into a loose patty a bit wider than the buns. Don’t overwork it.

Cook the burgers as soon as possible after forming. Set a large, heavy frying pan over a medium heat. Split the buns and toast, cut-side down, in the pan (you may need to do this in batches). Remove to a plate, then sear the burgers, pressing them down with a spatula as they cook, for 4-5 mins on each side for medium rare or 6-7 mins for medium. Top with cheese, if you like, after flipping them. When the burgers are cooked, assemble as preferred with the buns, toppings of your choice and the burger sauce.

Full English potato cake

Bring a big saucepan of salted water to the boil. Tip in the potatoes and simmer until almost tender, about 20 mins. Drain really well and steam dry for a few mins. Return to the pan and toss with 2 tbsp of the oil, the spring onions, thyme leaves and lots of seasoning. Grease your largest baking tray with some melted butter and press the potatoes into it. Put a baking sheet on top and gently press down to squash the spuds into a cake. Cover and chill until ready for breakfast. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Drizzle the melted butter and remaining oil over the potato cake and bake for 30 mins until golden. Add the bacon in a few piles and bake for another 15 mins. Dot over the tomato halves and the remaining thyme sprig, sprinkle with plenty of pepper, then crack the eggs among the gaps and bake for 5-8 mins, depending how you like your eggs. To serve, cut the potato cake into portions and pile onto 6 plates, along with the eggs, bacon, tomatoes and some buttered toast. Serve with brown and tomato sauce, tea and orange juice, if you like.

Lemon cod with basil bean mash

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the tomatoes onto a baking tray, rub with a little oil and some seasoning, then roast for 5 mins until the skins are starting to split. Add the fish to the tray, top with most of the lemon zest and some more seasoning, then drizzle with a little more oil. Roast for 8-10 mins until the fish flakes easily. Meanwhile, cook the beans in a pan of boiling water for 3 mins until just tender. Drain, then tip into a food processor with the rest of the oil, garlic, basil stalks, lemon juice and stock, then pulse to a thick, slightly rough purée. Season to taste. Divide the tomatoes and mash between two plates, top with the cod, then scatter with basil leaves and the remaining lemon zest to serve.

Cardamom butter chicken

Place the garlic, ginger, chillies and coriander stalks in the small bowl of a food processor with a good pinch of salt, and blend to a fine paste – or grind to a paste using a pestle and mortar. Heat 2 tbsp of the ghee or oil in a large pan, add the onions and cook slowly for 15-20 mins until golden and caramelised. Tip in the garlic-ginger paste, turn up the heat and cook for a further 5 mins. Add the ground spices and cook for 2 mins more until fragrant. Scoop the spicy onion mixture out of the pan into a bowl. Add the remaining ghee or oil to the pan and cook the chicken over a medium-high heat until browned all over. Tip into a bowl, cover and set aside. Return the onion mixture to the pan along with the whole spices, tomatoes and a can full of water (400ml). Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer gently for 40 mins. Return the chicken to the pan and cook, uncovered, for a further 10 mins until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the yogurt and cream, season well and scatter with coriander leaves. Serve with chapatis and rice.
