We all know the necessary lockdown period is pretty tricky. We’re all adjusting to new routines and adapting to new ways of doing things. During this time, it’s important (and comforting!) to eat properly, and make the most of every item in our pantries. Gone are the days of dashing to the shops every five minutes for that item we’ve forgotten, and frankly that’s actually quite nice…!
Gordon has decided to share some tips and recipes to feed your family during this time. All hearty, good, wholesome and easy, realistic dishes that anyone can make. There are no fancy deli-type ingredients needed, so don’t fret – this series has been designed around basic, standard household ingredients that are a general standard in most kitchens, lockdown or not. In some cases, Gordon couldn’t find his usual must-have ingredient, and he shows you some substitutes.
In true lockdown style, where what we referred to as ‘normal life’ and human interaction is a precious commodity that we all miss, we have purposely left these videos as raw and natural as possible, so enjoy the realness of Gordon’s kitchen, and stay tuned as we upload more as we go!
Stay safe, stay well, and eat well!
Butter chicken is a firm favourite for many people – but it often seems intimidating to make, as many recipes seem so complicated and filled with a long list of ingredients. Once you’ve watched Gordon cooking his version, you’ll be making this confidently and quickly in no time – with just a few key pantry staples.
What about the flat-bread that was in the butter chicken video? Here’s how to make it – with only two ingredients!
The flat breads are so incredibly versatile (and easy), that Gordon shows you how to make a delicious lunch with them, starting with some home-made guacamole.
And no guacamole is complete without a nice zesty salsa to add a bit of crunch to that perfect lunch-time treat. Bon appetit!
The next recipe Gordon shows you is a dish he is making for dinner for his family. It could also work really well as a nice lazy weekend breakfast – and when we said simple, we meant simple…! See how he brings two cans of baked beans to life with some basic pantry staples.
