Starter – Crispy fried artichokes with crispy broad bean shells and a broad bean yoghurt dressing
We’ve teamed up with Masterchef 2016 finalists, Billy & Jack, to create the perfect canned food dinner party menu. Over the next few weeks, Billy & Jack will share their tasty recipes for a slap-up, three-course feast as part of our virtual #CannedFoodDinnerParty masterclass. We kick off with their summery starter – crispy fried artichokes with crispy broad bean shells and a broad bean yoghurt dressing.
“A taste of Italian Summer! Our crispy artichokes and fresh broad bean and yoghurt dressing are a perfect match. Great for a hot day, or even a cold day when you need some summer vibes!” – Billy & Jack

This month’s guest recipe comes from Stephanie Cvetkovic, Content Editor at Expert Home Tips.
“Tuna is a highly nutritious food source that, with a little imagination, can taste pretty amazing. I took inspiration from my love of classic Asian flavours to whip up this tasty, high-protein meal, perfect for lunch. It’s an energising midday meal, wholesome enough to keep you going and light enough to prevent that sluggish feeling. If you do want to bulk it out, however, a side of rice noodles or wholegrain rice would be a complimentary addition.
“The recipe involves only basic ingredients, many of which you’ll already have hiding in your food cupboard, so there really is no excuse for not giving this one a go!”
This month’s guest recipe, Serradura, comes from Jess Friend at The Weekend Tourist who takes inspiration from a recent trip to Portugal and uses that store cupboard standby – a can of condensed milk.
“Serradura is a Portuguese dessert which I discovered on my recent trip Lisbon; it roughly translates to ‘sawdust’ in English, alluding to the look of the crushed biscuit layers. The traditional recipes use Marie Tea biscuits, but here I tried it with an amoretti twist, but you really could use any biscuit in the cupboard. It’s a great dessert that can be prepped in just a few minutes and chilled before a dinner party.”
