Stop focussing on the main event! Your side dishes are equally important, too. If you’ve never really given your side dishes more than a fleeting thought before, this is for you.

NOT-YOUR-AVERAGE SALAD

Grilled halloumi, chunky tomatoes, earthy shavings of fennel and sweet strawberry are a flavour match made in heaven.

THE NO-BOIL MASH

Quicker than traditional mash, this butter-bean mash takes just 15 minutes to whip up – no peeling and boiling required! Expect the same creamy texture as traditional mash, but with a rich, buttery flavour. Simply add some lemon juice, garlic and a glug of olive oil. Voilà!

ROAST POTATOES WITH A DIFFERENCE

The Swedes sure know how to roast a spud! These are whole-roasted potatoes with a slight difference: potatoes are thinly sliced and roasted with duck fat and fresh sage leaves. They’re heavenly hasselbacks and you’ll never make roast potatoes the same way again.

TANGY FRESH GREENS

A hearty side salad of quick-pickled radishes, creamy avocado and peppery wild rocket leaves.
