This challenge paired Medi Deli's Sun Dried Tomato pesto with their Basil Pesto Mayo - I combined the sun dried tomato pesto into a savoury scone (you can add some Parmesan cheese on the top if you prefer) and served with the basil pesto mayo instead of butter. A really lovely combination and look at the colours!

I was given the challenge of preparing dishes with combinations chosen by Mediterranean Delicacies. For this recipe, their chicken liver pate peri-peri combined with their tzatziki. I must admit, I read the brief a few times to see if I'd made a mistake. I was stumped at first. I knew I didn't want to mix the two ingredients directly. Then the idea emerged: make the pate into a warm pastry wheel sprinkled with cayenne pepper and offset it with a cool, creamy dollop of tzatziki. The result: fun to serve and eat finger-food!
Caramelised Onion & Beef Phyllo Pastry Tart with Green Olives - a holiday series colaboration with Mediterranean Delicacies - part one, a visit to Chefchaouen, Morocco.
A ballotine is traditionally a deboned leg of chicken or duck, stuffed, tied and rolled and steamed, poached or baked. Nowadays chicken breast and various cuts of red meat are also used to make a ballotine - really a fancy way of saying a stuffed and rolled piece of meat. I stuffed chicken breasts with Mediterranean Delicacies basil pesto and topped with their Olive Tapenade and bread crumbs.
These are a healthy version of nachos that I make at home, often to snack on while watching the football. I was given the challenge of preparing dishes with combinations chosen by Mediterranean Delicacies. In this instance their avocado hummus with their caramelised onion dip. I chose to use both as dips that I lavished over the hot-out-the-oven nachos.
Kedgeree has always been a versatile dish to use up left overs. In the Cape it is served with a fish (often smoked) like haddock, flaked and boiled egg. The rice is spiced with masala fried with onions. In this recipe, I teamed the Mediterranean Delicacies Peppered Mackerel with their hummus that I spiced using cayenne pepper. A spicy, satisfying meal that showcases the lovely smoked peppered mackerel fillet.
