The main dish. The showstopper. The main event. Le piece de resistance. The main dish is what will get people talking, while the wine will keep them talking. These recipes feature my take on some family favourite main dishes, including Barb’s famous beer-up-the-bum chicken, and some of my original creations too! As a student, I’m always looking for ways to make a cheap main dish shine, so I often replace meat with grains and vegetables, and use spices, sweet, and heat to kick up the volume, no matter what the protein of choice is.
