  • Fortune cookies recipe

    Fortune cookies recipe

    Fortune cookies are a Chinese restaurant staple, but theyíre actually really simple to make at home. The mixture for our fortune cookies is very similar to a French tuiles biscuit base, and is made up of butter, sugar, eggs and flour, as well as a little vanilla flavouring. These wafer-thin biscuits cool down fast, so the trick to shaping them is to work fast (while minding your fingers donít get burnt!) These are a really fun for New Year or a dinner party to impress friends and family with, and the best bit about making your own fortune cookies is you can make the fortunes personalised.

  • Low fat sweet and sour pork

    Low-fat sweet and sour pork

    Chinese takeaways are a real treat but this tasty low-fat version of an old favourite makes a great dinner any day of the week. Our healthy sweet and sour pork is delicious served up with some fluffy rice and a few prawn crackers for a treat. We love the balance of tangy flavours with sweet mellow tones in the sauce, and thanks to a little help from some cornflour it's nice and thick, so it coats everything beautifully - meaning you get a mouthful of flavour with every bite. If you want to make this low-fat, healthy sweet and sour pork even more virtuous you could roast the pork, rather than frying it in oil and add in a few more veggies too. Kids and adults will love this sweet and sour pork come Friday night, so why not add it to your meal planner and pick up the ingredients next time you're out and about? It's sure to become a family favourite!

  • Salt and pepper spare ribs

    Salt and pepper spare ribs

    These salt and pepper spare ribs are a classic Chinese restaurant favourite that can be made time and time again. The secret to their melt-in-the-mouth tenderness and crispy texture is to cook them twice. First, slow-cook them in a slow cooker or casserole dish in a low oven, then toss them in salt and spices and deep-fry them. Make these as a tasty starter and marinate for 2 hrs using Chinese rice wine and light soy sauce for an extra delicious flavour. Cooking these ribs on a low heat for a long period of time makes them fall off the bone. Theyíre finger licking good!
