Saturday Kitchen

Olly was back in the Saturday Kitchen last weekend counting down to Christmas. He joined Matt, chefs Ravneet Gill and Greg ‘Frenchie’ Marchand, and the lovely Ade Edmondson!

If you missed the festive episode, catch up here and here are Olly’s drinks pairings for the delicious dishes…

2 pandan leaves      2 lemongrass stalks           2 tbsp palm sugar
25g ginger               1 star anise                        30ml condensed milk


Bring the water to a boil and simmer before adding sliced ginger and sliced pandan leaves.

Add the remaining herbs and spices and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the palm sugar until dissolved and remove from the hear and steep for 15 minutes.
