15 minute chef: Buttermilk pancakes

This recipe is adapted from one by Martha Stewart. You can use regular or powdered buttermilk. You can make the batter the night before and refrigerate it, then cook the pancakes in the morning. You will need to thin the batter with more buttermilk, because it thickens as it chills. Ingredients

280 grams plain flour

½ tsp fine sea salt

Hip joint outshone by the real deal

It's a pity that okonomiyaki is little known compared to sushi, ramen and yakitori - the dish is Japan's version of soul food. It's a thick savoury pancake, usually filled with pork, shredded cabbage and cheese, amongst other ingredients.

Okonomi means 'what you like' and yaki means 'grilled'.

Kimchi pancakes

You can use this batter to make large pancakes (which are cut into wedges after cooking) or small, individual ones. If you like, substitute finely chopped seafood or other types of minced meat for the pork. The recipe is based on one in Growing Up in a Korean Kitchen by Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall.

Crepe expectations

Crepes are one of my favourite snacks when I'm in France. They are easy to find - small carts selling cooked-to-order crepes set up on street corners in busy pedestrian areas, and some restaurants set up stands outside to feed passers-by as well as those wanting to sit down for a more leisurely bite.

Convenient, can-do black bean recipes

Janet asks: What healthy recipes can I make with black beans?

Wynnie says: Black beans are a protein-rich food. They're smaller in size than kidney beans. Black on the outside with a white centre, these beans taste slightly sweet and have a creamy texture.
