    Kumara chips are a great option when plain old chips just won't do it. This recipe spices it up with a wee bit of lime zest, chilli and coriander.

    A fragrant bread/loaf cake. Can be eaten straight away but for best flavour, store overnight before serving. You can choose the amount of sugar in this cake depending on your taste.

    Kumara are one of the vegetables traditionally roasted with a joint of meat, but they're also enjoyed in many other ways. In this dish, the brown sugar helps give them a crispy edge, but the sweetness is cut by the fresh taste of lemon.
