We’ll cook a simple yet satisfying lunch together​,​ live​,​ in one hour. This series of lunches is designed to expand your cookery repertoire and your creative flair giving you the tools you need to become a greater cook. This is one of those simple little throw together lunches that wins every time​,​ it manages to taste far more complicated and faffy than it is​,​ warms up well if you have leftovers and can sit in almost any company. In the summer I make a version with watercress and spinach or even wild garlic in the spring time but I think I love the kale version best of all. Simple​,​ seasonal and casual lunches that will keep you smiling in the kitchen….
