Brunch like a master with these recipes for ful medames and sausage bun cha

It’s a moveable feast, as welcome for the late-riser who doesn’t get hungry until midday as it is for the person who breakfasts with the lark and needs something more substantial than elevenses. Whenever you choose to eat it, it is a meal that always coincides, somehow, with peak hunger.

Nigel Slater’s meatballs recipes

We need to rest homemade meatballs in the fridge before we attempt to cook them, as we should rissoles, patties and other little cakes that seem destined to fall apart in the pan. And once they are in the pan, which should be hot and shallow and with enough patina to prevent anything sticking, it is best not to tinker, prod and poke. Leave them be, sizzling merrily, giving them time to form the essential sticky crust that will help them hold together. Then, as you turn them to brown the other side, hold the cake in place on the palette knife with your finger and flip them over quickly before they have time to even consider falling apart. Test the consistency of the mixture by squeezing a lump of meat and aromatics together in your hand and rolling it into a ball. How to make slow-cooked lamb with blood orange and pomegranates.

Rachel Phipps: Recipe: Korean Pork Belly Bun Bowls

One of the biggest road blocks was that up until this month, it has been impossible to buy Gochujang (Korean chilli sauce) in a British supermarket. However, some stores have risen to the challenge, so in collaboration with Yogiyo! (a Dragon's Den start up who have brought mild Gochujang, medium Gochujang for cooking and Galbi Fruity Soy Marinade to Sainsbury's stores) I thought I'd share with you a simple, bright and delicious recipe using Gochujang.

Rather like onions and celery, they’re so much in the background that they rarely make it on to “favourite vegetable” lists in the way that, say, potatoes, carrots and peas do. (Apologies if you don’t carry such a list in your mind: I’m asked to name my favourite vegetable so often that I have started to think such lists are a totally normal way to fill up head space.) Peppers do a lot of the heavy work in the kitchen. Sliced or chopped, they add a refreshing crunch to a salad, while roasting draws out all that water and intensifies their sweetness.
