Kid Goat Shoulder Pilaf

Chicken Breast with Bulgur Salad and Coconut Oil Dressing

Coconut oil has numerous health benefits which you can read about here. It is a versatile ingredient, it can top your muesli, be used like butter or olive oil in cooking, it can also be used in baking to replace other fats.

Rack of kid goat, with Gran Luchito honey and herb crust

This is a lovely recipe that utilises the beautifully tender kid-goat rack and smoky Gran Luchito honey. The herb crust gives a nice crispy texture, and I used a water-bath to cook the rack sous-vide, but you could cook it in the oven as an alternative. If using the oven, seal the rack in a hot […]
