All the recipes you will find here have been devised for easy preparation: each step of each recipe is illustrated by a photo and detailed explanation, without unnecessary chefs' jargon.

The format (each recipe step = one large photo + explanation), is an important asset of, and I write the steps with great care, ensuring clear and simple to follow recipes, even for absolute beginners.

This spicy, ratatouille-style tomato and onion purée can be eaten on its own or to accompany other dishes. Here, I've baked it in individual ramekins, topped with an egg.

This recipe originated in North Africa and has spread all around the Mediterranean.
