This is an (almost) instant fresh chutney that will give a lively green kick to any curry. Go for as much or as little chilli as you like - you can also mix it through yoghurt for a cool, pale green dip to serve with tandoori prawns or cutlets or with samosas.

Pulled pork just got more irresistible with a sticky Asian marinade. This is a brilliantly versatile dish - use it to fill rice paper rolls or Chinese-style puffy omelettes or, as we do, stuff it in a baguette with pickled vegetables, a squiggle of sriracha chilli sauce and some mayo for a sort of easy banh mi. If you have leftovers, you could toss them through cooked hokkien noodles with steamed Asian greens, chopped into bite-sized pieces.

Any soup based on a proper chicken stock, made with free-range bones (feet included!) and vegies, is wonderfully homey and nourishing, whether it's a Jewish chicken noodle soup, Vietnamese pho, Greek avgolemono or this Chinese chicken and sweet corn soup. We have fond memories of this soup from childhood (oh, the Golden Fish restaurant in Rose Bay! How did they carve those carrot phoenixes?), where it would precede a 70s banquet of honey king prawns, beef and black bean and sweet and sour pork
