Fish Pie and Hummingbird Cake
Episode five sees Jamie and young son, Buddy, making a Curried fish pie. Unlike a traditional fish pie, this Indian-inspired version has amazing perfumed layers of flavour and a crispy, temper-drizzled top. Next, Jamie takes on a staple comfort food classic, the humble bacon sandwich. Joined by good mate and partner in crime, Pete Begg, watch their varying approaches to achieving true bacon sarnie perfection.
Jamie’s third recipe is a gorgeous gem-of-a-dish from Italy, Butter & sage gnudi – these delicious little balls of ricotta with a pasta-like semolina casing are a bit like gnocchi, but much lighter in texture. Finally, Jamie bakes one of his favourite sweet treats – the Hummingbird cake, which is extremely popular in the US. Made with pineapple, ripe banana and a crunchy pecan brittle, this beautiful cake is, quite simply, bloody delicious.
