Ingredients

Gnocchi:
1 egg
200g plain flour
2 potatoes

Pesto:
Basil
Olive Oil
4 cloves of garlic
Parmesan
Pine Nuts

Cooking calamari with Chef Maya

We also made the mayonnaise too! Ingredients below the videos.

Spanish frying flour (available from Spanish delis, or substitute with equal amounts of plain flour and breadcrumbs mixed together)

Molecular Strawberry Spaghetti

I am always scoffing Yo-Yo Bears and my mum said we should try making fruit spaghetti. We gave it a go but it wasn’t as tasty as the fruit Yo-Yos, but it was lots of fun to make. The agar-agar made it taste a bit seaweedy. It’s a vegan alternative to gelatine. Ingredients and equipment below the video.

Ingredients:
2g Agar Agar
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup of fruit juice (freshly squeezed and blended)
80 mls water


You will need a large syringe, 1 metre tubing and ice water.
