Nourishing, delicious and comforting – that's what is at the heart of these mouth-watering recipes from Estelle Sacharowitz's new cook book.

Portobello mushroom lasagne

Don’t soak the mushrooms as they easily absorb water and will generate too much liquid during cooking.

Baked spinach and feta filo spiral

For this recipe I use filo. It is light and I love its crispiness, the way the thin sheets bake with the butter to form an almost ethereal cloak atop the spinach and feta filling.

Grilled spatchcock chicken in a honey-ginger glaze

Baste regularly while cooking – it will turn the skin dark, crisp and sticky-delicious.
