Pasta with Semi-Dried TomatoesO Sole Mio tomatoes (sold in-store) are extraordinary... perfect, semi-dried tomatoes packed in sunflower oil with basil leaves. Fantastic on bruschetta, in special salads or in this delicious and easy pasta dish!
Pasta e FagioliThis humble pasta and white bean dish is a cross between a soup and a stew. It gets terrific flavour from the addition of a Parmesan rind that simmers in the first stages of cooking.
Jill’s Cabbage Roll SoupUnlike cabbage rolls, this soup recipe goes together quickly but provides all the wonderful cabbage roll flavours. It is so delicious!
Leek & Potato SoupThis is one of the most satisfying soups, made from two of the most humble ingredients! It is delicious served cold in the summer - and then it is called Vichysoisse.
Jill’s Tuna PastaThis is one of our all time pasta dishes using our favourite essentials using tomatoes, pasta and tuna.
Dessert CrepesLooking for something special for dessert? Dessert crepes are a year-round favourite. These are packed with colour and flavour thanks to Plaid Shirt Farms' black currant products.
Roasted Herb Spatchcocked ChickenSave yourself time and effort with this easy spatchcock chicken. Flattening makes for even cooking and better contact with the lemon bed below. Works best in All-Clad's stainless lasagna pan.
Pumpkin Panna Cotta with Toasted PecansPanna cotta is an Italian dessert that translates to “cooked cream”. Infinitely variable and can be made a day ahead. In this Thanksgiving version we’ve used canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Using gelatin leaves provides a beautifully silky texture.
Chicken ProvençalIn under an hour, Jill's Chicken Provençal recipe elevates just a handful of ingredients into a sublime classic. It's a great option for informal entertaining or a quick midweek family dinner (and is tested to work perfectly in our 20th anniversary oval casserole!).
Ran’s Basic PaellaChef Ran prepared this hearty dish to highlight the Staub 'One-Pan Wonder' Collection. Be sure to try it out!
Jill’s RatatouilleA Rustic French Classic. Stemming from the Provence region of France, this hearty country dish is a mélange of Mediterranean vegetables. Paired to perfection with bread, pasta and rice!
Salad NicoiseHailing from Nice, France, salad niçoise (pronounced "nee-suaz") is a protein-rich, composed salad made with raw vegetables, canned tuna and more!
Chocolate Mocha Pots de CrèmeThis French classic has been around since the 17th century. By adding espresso, you take the already decadent dessert to a whole new level. The perfect ending to any meal.
Panna CottaA simple dessert with a 'wow' factor. Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert that translates directly to "cooked cream".
Jill’s Pasta alla PuttanescaThis robust Italian dish originated in Naples. It features black olives, anchovies, capers and lots of garlic. A pinch of red chile flakes adds a subtle heat. This is one of our favourite quick pasta dinners.
Cheddar Cheese CoinsThis easy appetizer can be made well ahead and kept in the freezer until you are ready to bake. Cheddar Cheese Coins make a great nibbly with a glass of wine. Having just one is not an option 😉
Almond BiscottiBiscotti are a popular cookie from Italy. It’s a twice-baked, crunchy cookie shaped like a half moon. The Italians dip biscotti in coffee or in sweet Italian dessert wine, such as Vin Santo.
Cheese FondueThe perfect interactive family meal! Gather round and dip your favourite vegetables, fruit and bread into this warm, cheesy fondue.
