This dish warms the heart, taking the earth's hard work and delivering it in a familiar comfort food. This unassuming loaf - which uses four of the seven species: olives, grapes, wheat and figs - takes bread to a different level.
There is only one way to get paper-thin slices of fennel and that is with a mandoline slicer – most good kitchen shops and online suppliers offer this very simple tool that is perfect for home cooks, so there is no excuse not to have one. The skinniness does more than improve the look; with fennel it also enhances the taste.
This endive canapé recipe ties together three very seasonal flavours - cranberry, blue cheese and walnut - to create a crunchy and refreshing canapé. If you cannot find kosher Roquefort swap it for a strong vegetarian blue cheese or goat's cheese.
This is a warming wintery and festive dish, a perfect accompaniment to fish, chicken or meat. The apples, rosemary and the sweet and sour of the sugar and vinegar give the red cabbage a delicious kick.
What a great way to celebrate the arrival of winter citrus and the season's holidays: tender roast chicken burnished with a sweet-hot rub of silan, or date syrup, and harissa, and perfumed with tangerines caramelised in the oven. If you don't like it hot, reduce the amount of harissa or substitute sweet smoked paprika.
