Hand-rolled sushi (temaki zushi)
Hand-rolled sushi (temaki zushi) | When Japanese families make sushi at home, the most popular style is the temaki, or hand roll. A large platter of fresh ingredients, a big tub of sushi rice and some sheets of nori are all that’s needed for a tasty and fun sushi meal. The crunch of the nori in this kind of freshly rolled sushi recipe is a delicious change from the more common rolls, in which the nori has softened through longer contact with the moist rice.

Hervey Bay scallops with horseradish rice crackers, artichoke chips, Perigord truffle and chicken jus | This recipe, shared with us by the Intercontinental in Sydney, is an elaborate showcase of premium local produce: Hervey Bay scallops and Tasmanian truffles are only the beginning. To attempt this at home, you’ll need an iSi canister and a at least a single charge, to make the artichoke foam.
Octopus balls (takoyaki)
Octopus balls (takoyaki) | This recipe for little octopus-filled balls hails from Osaka, but these are a crowd favourite all over Japan. While commonly spotted as a street food eaten on the run, many Japanese families make takoyaki at home; varying the fillings and toppings can be great fun for the whole family.
Roasted peanuts with shichimi spices and roasted nori
Roasted peanuts with shichimi spices and roasted nori | Our recipe for these nuts was inspired by David's recent visit to Hartsyard restaurant in Newtown. The peanuts he ate had delicious morsels of crispy duck skin. But to make things easier for you at home we have made a few changes and we are sure you’ll love them just as much as he did. Shichimi (seven flavour chilli pepper) is a blend of 7 Japanese flavours and is often served alongside soups and rice dishes. We have used a readymade spice
Chicken schnitzel | This recipe creates tender chicken with a lovely golden coating and it is delicious with mashed, boiled or fried potatoes.

Egg and bacon bread bake
Egg and bacon bread bake | “This is a really easy dish to put together with a few simple ingredients. It's perfect for any time of day - breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a midnight snack. You don’t have to used sliced white bread for this - just use whatever you have hanging around at home and even better if it’s a few days old. And it wouldn’t be a Khoo recipe if there wasn’t some cheese involved! You can easily make this dish vegetarian by just leaving out the bacon and using a vegetarian–frie
Salt and Sichuan pepper baby prawns with coriander and lime aioli

Australia is known for its clean warm waters and wonderful fresh seafood, so we decided to do a stay-at-home crispy prawn recipe for those of you who can’t make it to ol’ Sydney town.

Salmon and watercress tart | Buttery pastry, rich salmon and peppery watercress make this creamy quiche by Nigel Slater a real treat to come home to. For this recipe you will also need a round, loose-bottomed 24cm/10in tart case at least 3.5cm/1½in deep, plus baking beans for baking blind.
Heston Blumenthal's triple cooked chips
Heston Blumenthal's triple cooked chips | These chips are one of my proudest legacies! You see them on menus up and down the country now but the original recipe came out of endless experimenting at home long before I even opened the Fat Duck. The first secret is cooking the chips until they are almost falling apart as the cracks are what makes them so crispy. The second secret is allowing the chips to steam dry then sit in the freezer for an hour to get rid of as much moisture as possible. The f
Colombian black cake (torta negra Colombiana)
Colombian black cake (torta negra Colombiana) | This is Colombia’s version of a rich fruit cake. Dense with prunes, raisins and figs, generously spiked with both rum and port, and cleverly flavoured with aromatic spices, it is hard to stop at one piece. Traditionally dulce quemado (sweet burnt brown sugar), either homemade or bought, is used to sweeten this cake, but molasses makes a perfectly acceptable substitute as I've done in this recipe.
Anzac biscuits | Nothing beats an Aussie icon, and Anzac biscuits are certainly that. Anzac biscuits can be purchased (and enjoyed!) at cafes, takeaway food outlets, cake shops and supermarkets, all year round. My personal preference, at anytime, is for a home-baked biscuit. Our family recipe for Anzac biscuits has been handed down, from generation to generation, since its creation at the time of World War I (1914-1918). At that time, and since, handwritten recipes were swapped over kitchen tab
Masala chai carrot cake
Masala chai carrot cake | Carrot cake is one of my favourite ‘vegetable-type’ cakes to make at home; it’s simple to prepare and rather rustic yet absolutely delicious. I’ve infused this carrot cake with chai (the Hindi word for tea is chai) and used a few of my favourite spices that I use when I have a craving for masala chai (the Hindi word for spice is masala). I've also skipped the vanilla flavour in the cream cheese frosting in favour of pistachio. This recipe is adapted from one of my favou
