Being a firm fashion enthusiast, for me, any season change brings joy. In winter, I get to swap sun frocks for fur-trimmed jackets – and swap salads for wintry comfort cooking! According to my mother, my great grandmother used to cook in a fur jacket, and I can see why! Yes, I believe that food and fashion go hand in hand. This month’s foodie fashion involves big bowls of deliciously hearty soups and casseroles, and cooking in-season citrus fruit.

CRISPY SKIN TIPS FOR A WORTHY ROAST Roast chicken with cranberry, almond stuffing and crisp hasselback potatoes FOR RECIPE VISIT hn.com.au/steam-ovens COOKING WITH COMBINATION STEAM #01 Roasting perfection Roasting is made easy, more succulent and healthier using steam. You will also find your roast will hold most of its weight compared to electric-only cooking, where up to 20% can be lost during the cooking process. BENEFITS OF COOKING WITH A STEAM OVEN Food cooked in steam not only tastes wonderfully tender and juicy, it’s also healthier, with more flavours, nutrients and minerals retained. Plus, you can cook multiple dishes at the same time without the flavour transfer. Cleaning up is a breeze–the moist air on the oven cavity wall heavily reduces food splatter and spills sticking on the bottom of the oven.
