Pop on a beret and your favourite striped t-shirt because Bastille Day is just around the corner - July 14 to be exact - and what better way to honour the French national holiday (Fête Nationale) than by making Robbie’s express take on this French classic. In this version of the hearty winter dish, Robbie has given you a few short cuts, including canned beans and our very own Cook's Series Slow-Roast Duck Leg and Free Range Pork Belly.
You too can create these succulent parcels of meat wrapped in a tender chewy skin from only three ingredients, we promise. Follow Robbie's step-by-step guide and your dumpling journey will be well underway.
These delicious meatballs are made from free range pork and fennel cooked in a rich tomato sauce base. They come precooked which means they are ready for you to heat and eat in just 20 minutes. Serve with pasta and top with lashings of parmesan, top some creamy soft polenta and shower with herbs, make an Italian sub or Mexican burrito – your imagination is the only limit.
Cooler weather and shorter days are all part and parcel of winter. Of course, they’re ideal for a long slow cooking project and have we got one for you. Similar to lasagne, Vincisgrassi is a layered baked pasta dish from the Marche region of Italy. It features a ragu enriched with chicken livers which is then anointed with a creamy bechamel, all layered between pasta you’ve made with your own two hands.

Originating in Peru, and with different varieties from South and North America, to the Caribbean and the Asia-Pacific regions, Ceviche has become one of the most popular ways to enjoy fresh fish. The popular seafood dish is made using fresh raw fish that is cured in fresh citrus juice and often served with chilli peppers, onions, coriander, and a variety of different regional seasonings.
Here, Robbie presents his take, influenced by a version of the dish produced during his time at Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney.
