Are you looking for something new and healthy to cook? Well, Huddersfield Town’s Head of Performance Catering Paul Gilmore discusses some tasty recipes you can try at home!
Today’s special recipe is bebek panggang – inspired by my time working in Indonesia!
I travelled to Bali and worked at the 5-star rated Nusa Dua Beach Hotel, where I discovered an amazing style of cooking and flavourings.
This dish is a cross between the best bits of Chinese and Indian cookery, resulting in a fresh tasting spiced cuisine - not too hot but full of flavour!
