Growing up, Themis loved when his mum cooked her two favourite recipes: spaghetti bolognaise for dinner and a meat pie for lunch.

Carribean Jerk Ribs Sauce

   

The London-raised carpenter grew up amongst a West Indies community and fell in love with jerk flavours in the numerous Jamaican restaurants.

Meatballs

Christina doesn’t need to travel to Italy to get an idea of how her family’s previous generations lived. Every time she cooks her meatballs, she’s repeating a practice that her Italian nonna and her great nonna have done before her. With the recipe handed down from generation to generation, Christina hopes to make her family proud.
