Cooking for two requires a different mindset than cooking for larger numbers. Roasting whole joints of meat or cooking up big side dishes to share are 'off the menu'. As a result of this often much more planning is required, that is not a bad thing, I do it all for you.
Don't worry, if you are cooking for more going in the other direction and scaling up recipes is much easier!
My recipes are all designed with cooking for two in mind. Even those with larger serving sizes will be great for either freezing or repurposing as leftovers.
Calamari rings are arguably probably the most recognisable way that most people encounter squid. My version goes with breadcrumbs and a bit smoked paprika, chorizo and a tomato sauce with a slight Spanish influence.
My slow cooker lamb shanks are gently cooked in a bold red wine which is then reduced to create a sauce with massive flavour. You may want to leave the house though, the aroma of this cooking all-day will leave you salivating!
My recipe for garlic ginger chicken takes the unusual approach of poaching chicken legs in a broth full of big flavour. This makes for a lighter meal but one that lacks for nothing in the flavour department.
