Q: What’s your fastest din­ner recipe?

Woolworths TASTE - - Final Tidbit - Gary Me­hi­gan, MasterChef Aus­tralia judge

A: 14-MINUTE PRES­SURE COOKER BOLOG­NESE

TASTE food editor Abi­gail Don­nelly caught up with Gary while he was in Pre­to­ria for the Ap­petite Fest a few months back. So what’s his favourite fast-and-easy recipe? “I love my pres­sure cooker; I make a great pres­sure-cooker Bolog­nese in 14 min­utes.”

His other great time-sav­ing in­ven­tion is “the chicken and walk the dog dish”. The se­cret? Place a chicken on the braai, then take the dog for a long walk. When you get back 70 min­utes later, rest the chicken and serve it with a wa­ter­melon-and-yo­ghurt salad.

While in SA, Gary also found time to eat at David Higgs’s brand-new Jozi restau­rant, Saint. His In­sta­gram re­view:

“Dé­cor and set-up fab­u­lous … food de­li­cious, as ex­pected.” Sounds like David sur­vived the pres­sure test.

If you’re a die-hard MasterChef Oz fan, look out for a royal guest on the next sea­son – Prince Charles will re­port­edly be on set. @garymehi­gan
