Half an hour later, we are all peering through the window, and debating sending out a search party, when we spot the delinquent pair staggering down the street. We open the front door to find them laughing hysterically, with Mum bleeding from the face having taken a Negroni-induced tumble. The Art of Friday Night Dinner: Recipes for the best night of the week by Eleanor Steafel. Photography by Sophie Davidson. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that each time the induction lights up is a gift, it’s certainly the most time and energy efficient way of cooking anything, and an absolute a must-have for chefs who crave control over chaos in the kitchen. Set the water on to boil for the orzo. Salt the water well and cook the orzo until al dente. Drain and reserve a little of the cooking water. A relaxing Friday night in deserves to be celebrated, ideally with a wonderful plate of food. Whether you’re cooking dinner for friends or family, or savouring a supper for one, there’s nothing quite like a comforting bowl of pasta.

Set a large frying pan over a medium heat. When the pan is hot, drizzle a little olive oil over each sandwich and sit them – oiled side down – in the pan. Pop a piece of baking paper on top, then sit a heavy pan on top of the sandwiches to flatten them. Fry for 3 minutes, until the cheese is beginning to melt, then remove the pan and paper, drizzle the top sides with a little oil and flip the sandwiches. Cook for another 2 minutes or so, using the paper and pan again. For the first month, I channelled my frustration into rearranging the house. Mum was impressively patient as I walked into rooms, declared them unacceptable and began tearing them apart. She left me to it while I stomped about her kitchen. “Lovely, darling,” she’d say through gritted teeth. “I’m sure you’re right, that was a stupid place for the bread bin.” I was induced into buying an induction hob by my parents when we refurbished our house just over a decade ago. Everyone else I knew seemed to be getting an Aga but, being an unenthusiastic cook at the best of times, I didn’t fancy taking out another mortgage on an overpriced range devoid of any knobs, dials or even a temperature gauge.The only thing you must do is to properly brown the nuggets of meat, and go heavy on the lemon. The pasta shape is your choice and yours alone, though I’d make a case for something that is going to catch the sauce – finding a bit of sausage in a pasta tube or shell is a very good thing. Here are more than a hundred recipes for the best night of the week. If you're planning to spend the evening on the sofa, have your closest friend over or even host the masses, why not try Eleanor's fail-safe crowdpleasers: Turn the heat down low under the pan. There should be a good bit of sausage fat in the pan, but add a splash more oil. Fry the shallots with a pinch of salt for 8 minutes, or until softened and golden. Then, add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Thanks to your sausage-y pan, this is all going to go pretty gnarly as opposed to leaving you with perfectly translucent softened shallots and garlic. But that’s OK. Gnarliness = flavour. I find making dinner boring enough as it is – why on earth would I want to drag out the process for longer than is absolutely necessary? And that’s why our induction hob remains a godsend.

Water reaches 100 °C in seconds, not minutes. You can fry an egg in the time it takes to toast and liberally butter a slice of bread. It’s precision cooking for the impatient cook.It’s also a space saver – induction hobs don’t need to be fitted; they can be plugged in anywhere. “I can lift it up, put it anywhere I want to and I’m cooking straight away, which is handy for saving space and the economy of movement in the kitchen,” adds Talati. Just don’t buy one if you have a pacemaker – the hob’s electromagnetic field can interfere with the settings.
