comfort food

As autumn sets in, we've included some recipes below with an eye on comfort cooking. If the past couple of weeks have left you feeling bewildered, the Lebanese one pot dish, bulgur wheat and tomatoes, is not only a doddle, but restorative too. Using a handful of ingredients and done in 15 minutes, frying the onions in Zejd's extra virgin olive oil adds not just flavour but makes it even healthier. If you double the quantity, the leftovers can be recycled into next day's salad. For something sweet, why not have a go at making the saffron buns - watching the milk turn gold with the saffron and then enjoying them with clotted cream (another Phoenician gift to these isles) is wonderfully comforting. Have fun in the kitchen this weekend!
