Recipe of the Month

We have made it to the shortest day of the year!  It is the season for slow-cooked meals and our Beef, Orange & Prune casserole is a winner. 

Usually our Senior Chef recipes make enough for 1-2 serves.  However, our casseroles make enough for four serves because of the long slow cooking required and you can freeze the leftovers (for a rainy day!).

It's also a great meal to share with whanau or friends.
