4 simple flavour tips to make memorable meals

1. Build a Flavour Town compartment in your fridge

Think of this as your condiments…. BUT BETTER.

This is zero effort on your behalf, except opening the fridge – we can’t get any simpler than that…. until the transfer the clapping lights functionality to the clapping fridge door opening.

ON MY FLAVOUR TOWN LIST I HAVE:

Cashew cheese, goat cheese, sheep cheese, cheddar, labneh.

Kimchi, sauerkraut, olives, semi-dried tomatoes, mustard, pickles, yogurt, coconut yoghurt.

Get yourself a Flavour Town list and build it up. I talk about this in my free recipe book Get Your Shit Together.

 

2. Toasted nuts, seeds, coconut

Toasted nuts, seeds and coconut bring TEXTURE. They bring CRUNCH. They bring NUTTINESS. They bring FLAVOUR.

Pop your oven on 180 degrees. Scatter on a tray and toast them up.

Coconut will be the fastest to make – about 5-7 minutes. Followed by sesame.

Make a batch on a Sunday and store them in a jar.

3. A quality olive oil

You’ll use less of it. It tastes magnificently different, adds flavour.

Look for a cold pressed one thats local to your area.

4. You have to start!

Don’t delay. Don’t wait for a rainy day or when you’ve got free time, because if you’re already avoiding the cooking… you’re going to avoid it forever.

Start now!

2 bonus tips

1. A squeeze of lemon

Or lime or grapefruit or any other citrus. Its acid and acid works in dishes to balance flavours – use it instead of adding vinegar.

2. Fresh fruit

This one goes well for salads, now that we’re coming into the warmer months I’m excited for adding stone fruit in my meals to balance out creamy and salty flavours (haloumi, I’m looking at you). There’s nothing like juicy peaches in a meal, or mango. Experiment with how you chop them up.
