Dr Rupy's butternut massaman curry

Flavour packed, slow-cooked dishes are the simplest yet most satisfying and comforting meals. This rich Massaman curry can be made with meat, but I love using butternut squash instead. It takes on the spices really well and, with the extra veg, the dish has plenty of micronutrients. Greens, squash and other yellow / orange coloured vegetables are dense sources of pro-vitamin A and offer vital phytonutrients for immunity and eye health.

This recipe makes enough for lunch the next day (to make your co-workers envious).

Phil Vickery's shepherd's pie

They’re the legendary British band known for their rock and roll lifestyles but it seems these days, Rolling Stones members Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards prefer their home comforts - swapping cigarettes and alcohol for a hearty Shepherd’s Pie. Both have posted pictures of their meal before their live performance for their No Filter tour.

So if it’s good enough for the Stones - it’s good enough for us. Phil Vickery’s here with his twist on the classic recipe.

Gino turns teacher for the day!

He’s tried his hand at being everything from a policeman to a binman for the day. Today, Gino is ‘at your service’ once again and this week he’s trying his hand at becoming... an English teacher!

Gino spends the day at a Manchester primary school helping teach an English lesson, and assisting the kitchen staff as they prepare lunch for the pupils.
