Lorraine Pascale uses her cooking know-how to inspire everyone to home cook the food they love.
First up is cosy roasted butternut squash soup with chilli and ginger. Pasta has also made it on to the comfort menu with Lorraine's easy home-made cracked black pepper pasta which is fantastic with a simple creamy pancetta, mushroom and parmesan sauce made from standby ingredients.
Then there are two chocolate treats - chocolate marshmallow brown sugar fudge and peppermint creams sugar rush. And comfort in a jar comes in the form of Asian chilli jam. It is ideal to give as a gift or eat by the fireside when the nights are drawing in.
Next it is time for Lorraine's storecupboard standbys, her favourite ingredients that transform any dish from drab to fab.
For dinner Lorraine thinks that after a hard day nothing beats five-spice baked ribs with a sticky honey sesame sauce. And for a cool dessert there is an unbelievably dramatic swiss roll bowl cake.
