Do you ever “smack” your food? You can tenderize meat or massage greens but I never imagined myself “smacking” a cucumber.

How To Make Chicken Peri Peri – The Bombay Chef – Varun Inamdar

Food experts have recently stated what they expect this years top food trends to be. With African food as one of the front runners, I wanted to share this video by Varun Inamdar on behalf of Get Curried. Showing you how to make your very own Peri Peri Chicken.

“Chicken Peri Peri (or Piri Piri) is an African barbeque chicken recipe introduced in Africa by the Portuguese. It derives its name from the Peri Peri sauce.

Ingredients:-

1 kg Chicken 
100 ml Extra Virgin olive oil
10 – 13 garlic cloves
5 ripe serrano chillies
10- 12 African devil red chillies
3 Bay leaves 
1 tsp smoked paprika 
Sea salt as required
1 lemon juice
Parsley
3-4 charcoal chunks
1 tbsp oil

Method:-

The Sauce:-
Take the devil red chillies, serrano chillies, bay leaves, garlic cloves, sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, smoked paprika and lemon juice in a grinder and make a fine paste.

The Marination:-
Cut the chicken into 8 pieces after removing the fat. Add the peri peri sauce to the chicken pieces and mix it properly.

Smoke Infusion:-
Take a few pieces of wood charcoal and place them on the gas burner and heat them till they are red. Take the burning charcoal pieces in a small bowl aand keep the bowl in the bowl of marinated chicken pieces. Pour some olive oil on the charcoals and as soon as they start emitting smoke cover the marination bowl with a lid. Let it smoke for 30 minutes.

The Barbeque:-
Heat a pan on moderate flame. Place the pieces of the marinated chicken in the pan and heat till brown.
Take some fresh parsley leaves and dab them in the marinade. Baste the pieces of chicken with the marinade. Keep turning the pieces of the chicken and make sure they are brown on all sides.

Turn off the flame and Chicken Peri Peri is ready to serve.”

Sausage and Sweet Potato Shakshouka — Wish to Dish

I wanted to share this recipe from Wish to Dish. I have recently followed this blog. It shares a vast amount of creative and enticing recipes and what’s great is that it offers you alternative ingredients based on your dietary requirements so everyone can enjoy!

 

A recipe for munching and brunching today… Shakshouka is a dish that has recently found fame on instagram – it is posted almost as frequently as the perennial avocado toast and you are unlikely to scroll down your feed on a Sunday (brunching day) without it popping up. The recipe originates from the middle east […]

“Shazam for Food” – Pinterest’s New Lens Feature

Struggling for ideas of what to eat? Take a picture of your ingredients and let Pinterest’s new feature come up with something for you!

It truly is a golden age we live in. I noticed an article shared by @TheFoodigans on Twitter about a new “Shazam for Food” feature. Of course, by this point, my interest had been piqued. This “Shazam for Food” is referencing Pinterest’s new “Lens” feature.

Lens has been previously used to identify different objects. You take a picture through the Pinterest app and it will try to identify this object and link to relevant information. One of the most popular searches/categories on Pinterest is “Food” With thousands of food bloggers sharing their recipes and showcasing their culinary works. So, of course, Lens had to be adapted to accommodate this huge group of people.

Say you have a plate of food in front of you. Simply snap a picture of it and Pinterest will again, try to identify this dish and also provide you with relevant recipes to reproduce it. Say you have no dish in front of you but a mish-mash of ingredients that you simply don’t know how to put together. Take a picture of it and you will be hit with creative ideas of how to combine these ingredients to make something awesome! In theory…

The app feature is still in its beta phase. Sometimes it gets confused. You may be hit with a message telling you that the app is still learning and it needs help to identify what is in the image. Once this recognition software starts to get the idea, I really believe this is going to take off. Pinterest is the one-stop shop for the most creative and brilliant ideas. This feature will allow people to discover new dishes and get creative with their cooking.

Have you tried the new Lens feature on Pinterest? What did you think of it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

If you haven’t tried it. Why not come down to Barnsgate and give it a go? I’d be quite interested to see what it makes of our locally famous steak and kidney pie!
