Fried chicken’s perfect to enjoy when the weather rocks. It’s also awesome for when the weather is not so great. Fried chicken’s just great all the time, actually. This recipe from Morris East features comforting flavours that’ll get you through whatever Mother Nature throws your way. A touch of local honey and chili flakes will warm you up on those rainier days.

Fresh, Mediterranean flavours make this haddock dish shine like the sun.
