We thought the quote (see left) for this month’s issue sums it all up. Cooking is based on mastering the basics before building on them with flavour layers and various textures. We will forever remember the first dish we cooked up for our family – for our Editor, it was Pear Mice Flan; tinned pears nestled on a bed of chocolate Angel Delight on a sponge flan base. Not exactly the height of sophistication or skill, but she can still remember the glee of the first bite. So we thought it was time to celebrate the basic techniques and methods that have made us the great cooks we have, or would like to, become. This issue is all about rediscovering, or teaching the next generation, from soft-boiling eggs, making a sublime…

Our take on the traditional Italian salad, panzanella, includes cannellini beans and cheese to beef up the protein content, making it more of a main meal than a side salad. You can use marinated feta instead of goat’s cheese. If you prefer, skip the cheese and stir through a can of flaked drained tuna. If you don’t have a zester, you can finely grate the lemon rind instead. Use regular beef mince, not lean, for a juicier patty. Patties and sauce can be prepared a day ahead. Most frying pans aren’t heavy-based, so heat your pan over medium heat for at least 3 minutes without adding any oil or butter. This way, when the ingredients are added to the pan, it will hold the heat a lot better. Store tomatoes at room temperature rather than in the…
