You could add cheese or tomato to your Vegetarian Stuffing before baking and serve with a green salad.

Also before baking, if you want to know if you have the right flavours... make a little ball and fry until golden and try.



Jane is a trained chef. She trained by going to evening classes whilst working by day in a publishing company. And in 2006, Jane and her husband left the UK and launched a yacht charter business where she worked as the yacht chef all over the Med. During the winter months, she continued to chef at luxury chalets. Now with her husband they spend time working in a large villa and on yachts. Jane also teaches people with very different cooking desires- for those who want to work on yachts and to expand their portfolio and for those who just want to improve their cooking skills.
