Airdate: Donna Hay: Basics to Brilliance


Cookbook author Donna Hay returns to LifeStyle FOOD next month with a new food series, Donna Hay: Basics to Brilliance.

The 8 part series, produced by Lune Media, shows viewers how to master simple recipes.

The series also includes Donna Hay’s life outside the kitchen, including photo shoots, favourite pastimes and life as a busy mother.

“I truly believe, just like anything you want to be good at, that mastering the basics is how you build confidence in the kitchen. In this series I share all my tried and true foundations – think the perfect tender steak, golden roasted chicken, crispy pork belly and my Nan’s sponge cake. Each is followed by clever variations and simple flavour change-ups, so one recipe becomes many,” she said.

In episode one, Donna shows you how to master the perfect pork belly, which can then be used to create pork pancakes with pickled vegetables and hoisin sauce, as well as a pork belly rice bowl with bok choy and chilli. She’ll share her recipe for a light and crispy tempura batter you can use for prawns and vegetables, and finishes up with her ultimate chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, which forms the base for her decadent marshmallow and chocolate s’mores and sensational cookies and cream popsicles.
