Would you eat a sugary burger? Patty enthusiast Jassy Davis combined her love of the US favourite with her sweet tooth to make these inspired versions of the American ‘slider’ (a mini burger).

The Polish food trend is here to stay, with ‘Polski skleps’ (Polish stores) popping up at a rate of knots across Britain. Have a go at creating some of the country’s hearty dishes yourself with the help of mum-of-two Ren Behan, who writes at renbehan.com. Check out her ‘My Polish Kitchen’ section for traditional suppers and cakes like this delicious poppy seed and plum traybake.
