Being cooped up at home can get a little monotonous, but it's also a great time to learn something new, something you always said you wanted to try! Especially in the current climate of less and less restaurants operating as normal, why not try recreate some of your favourite dining-out dishes in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Legendary Kiwi Chef, the brains behind some of the country's favourite restaurants including RATA, Madam Woo, and Ostro, Josh Emett has you covered with his deliciously decadent recipes in these tough times. Particularly a fan of some of the best comfort foods known to man, Chef Emett has been gracing his Instagram followers with recipes for months now – and saving them to his highlight reel for a rainy day.
Take your pick, or work your way through, Chef Emett's dozens and dozens of tutorial videos ranging from winter-warmer soups and lamb shank to fresh fish tacos and bacon macaroni and cheese. His step-by-step videos could fill a recipe book, with desserts, salads, sides, and main meals to feed the whole flat or family.
Our tried and tested favourites have to be his easy homemade gnocchi with a butter and sage sauce or the courgette frittata hot out the oven!
Keeping you busy and hopefully slightly more sane while staying indoors for the time being, why not try your hand at recreating dishes by one of New Zealand's top culinary talents?
