Leeds cooking demonstration

Here are a few photographs from me showing the general public of Leeds how make the perfect chicken , and seafood and chorizo paella,
Paella was invented in a small village in Valencia , typically they would use the foods they had around them, so they would use duck and chicken from their land and or the shellfish from the sea to also make a ” marisco” paella, basically it was to ensure they got all their nutrients from a one pan dish and typically they would eat this for their Sunday lunch . As time went on the duck was later replaced with rabbit as it was cheaper and much easier to source …. However paella is the pan and not the ingredients – so actually you will find from region to region the ingredients will change especially from Catalonia to Andalusia.. Each chef has their own special recipe and you will find mine on the YouTube cooking channel .. Link directly from the homepage and please leave feedback or ask any questions .. Muchas Gracias xx

Spicy green curry veg soup with mini chilli and black pepper popadums

This is a soup that literally can be made in 10 mins from start to finish .. It’s really healthy, really tasty, filling and low on calories … Make a big pan and portion to eat for the week or freeze into portions….you can use any veg you have in your fridge/ freezer but I am using …

Ingredients
Green beans
Broad beans
Chestnut mushrooms
Cherry tomatoes
2 spring onions
Garden peas
Two cans of coconut milk
A heaped dessert spoon of green curry paste ( you can also make this from scratch which I will show you in another recipe)
4 cloves of garlic
Half a red sliced chilli
1/4 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 kafir lime leaf

Method

Put everything in the pan – bring to the boil then summer for ten mins and blend

Whilst your soup is cooking deep fry your mini popadums ( I will show you how to make these in another recipe)
Shop bought or homemade … Whichever you have time for ..
The main thing is – making your own healthy meals quickly and easily .. You cannot beat the health benefits or taste from eating freshly made soups ( or any other meals)

Coconut milk/ water is very good for you if you are pregnant and it is also a natural fat buster .. It’s a superfood!!
