By adding whole chicken thighs on the bone to a soup base creates another dimension of rich cartilage-marrow injected chicken flavour. Juicy, thick and tasting of wholesome goodness, broth extracted this way has many health benefits. This recipe has an Italian twist with olive oil, pesto and parmesan making it very moreish.

Potato Focaccia

Potato Focaccia

This famous italian loaf includes part wholemeal flour which gives it a soft flavoursome taste. The key to making the perfect focaccia is adding oil to the base of the pan before laying dough on for its second rise, then drizzling again on top whilst hot straight out of the oven. The oil absorbs into the bread and gives it a chewy wet moreish taste and texture.
