Seafood and eggplant tagine

Seafood and Eggplant Tagine

Do something different for your weekend lunch with the family and serve something exotic but easy to pull off at home. Originating from Morocco, tagine is a stew-type dish with poultry, meat, or seafood plus vegetables and fruit. Slow-cooked in traditional cookware with the same name, tagines are as rich and hearty as Western-style stews but are cooked with much less liquid. The domed lid traps steam and sends the moisture back to the pot, ensuring that food is cooked to tender perfection. Serve this mouthwatering seafood and eggplant tagine with a couscous salad to complete your Sunday feast.

Easy Christmas Ham

A Christmas table doesn’t feel as festive without succulent baked ham at the centre. It pulls the feast together like no other dish can. And who doesn’t look forward to eating leftover ham for days? But cooking ham worthy of being at the centre of family tradition can be so daunting, especially when you’re already time-poor this time of year. We make it easy for you in this recipe. Buy pre-cooked ham that’s been smoked or cured from your local butcher (but you may need to put in an order weeks in advance) and finish it off in the oven at home with a delicious glaze. Then you’ll have the juicy, moist, glazed ham you deserve this holiday season.
