Global Recipes To Master In Self Isolation
Italian dishes are famous for their robust flavours with sumptuous tomatoes, sharp cheeses and zesty herbs. Best part? Most of the recipes are incredibly simple and require few ingredients. To make your favourite pasta noodles, all you need is a few eggs, flour and olive oil. Start by making a flour nest for the eggs and then work the ingredients together.
No pasta maker? No problem. Traditional tagliatelle can be whipped up with some extra handwork and smart cutting. Once you get the kneading down, the rest is a cakewalk.
This meso-American staple is part of everyone’s favourite food – tacos! The oldest tortillas date back more than 10,000 years and have changed very little in the meantime. Keep it traditional and use masa harina (corn flour) instead of regular flour. This ancient culinary staple requires only masa harina, water and a little bit of effort.
Pro tip: pass on the tortilla press and make your own with a plate and parchment paper
This oven-baked flatbread is the supped up cousin to pita. Grab some yeast, dough ingredients plus a whole lot of butter and yoghurt and knead to your heart’s content. What makes naan particularly good is the natural yoghurt that works together with the butter to add a subtle tanginess and tenderness.
Crispy outside, soft pillowy inside and undoubtedly French, you can’t pass up a chance to master a classic baguette. Don’t believe the lie that you need a bread machine, either! With a little bit of practice, you can make this bakery fave with just flour water, salt, yeast and a little bit of patience.
