Spanish Fish Stew with Green Beans and Cauliflower Couscous

A proper fish stew takes hours to get on the table – it’s definitely not the sort of thing you’d think about rustling up for a speedy, midweek dinner. This version, however,  jazzes up a few store-cupboard staples to make a deliciously simple fish dish, packed full of flavour, that takes around 30 minutes from first chop to final ladling.

Italian Meatballs with Rice

Meatballs, like so many mince-based dishes, tend to occupy a special place in our hearts. Perhaps it’s their simplicity, their diminutive size, or maybe it’s the image of Disney’s Lady and the Tramp enjoying a bowl by the bins, but we can’t think of many other dishes we’d rather settle down with after a long day at work.

Classic Prawn Cocktail

The prawn cocktail has been around now for a good 30 years, and has spent most of that time see-sawing from the height of foodie fashion to the laughably passé. It has become such a figure of culinary fun in recent years that it is hard to take it seriously as a dish.

Aubergine, Halloumi and Hummus Flatbreads with Courgette Fries

What is the meaning of life? Does free will really exist? Are there parallel universes? Why do we dream? Is a chip still a chip if it’s not made with potatoes?

Aubergine Parmigiana

Like the peach, the noble aubergine has taken on the most unnoble of meanings in the world of emojis. Here at Dr Will’s we decided to look past its rather rude connotations to create a hearty, meat-free dish that makes a great summer suppertime staple.

BBQ Pulled Pork and Rainbow Slaw Wraps

Unlike selfie-sticks or Pokémon Go, American food is a trend which continues to thrive. And while mac and cheese can be a little too stodgy, and hot dogs are a little too, well plastic, our love for the barbecue glows hot and bright as a burning coal.
