Presenting the star that is Max Fosh, a youtube sensation who has mastered one dish: Chorizo Pesto Pasta Bake. On his youtube channel Max tries to find answers to questions such as: how far will this car go without fuel? Questions that have gone unanswered for too long. He has two series on his channel: StreetSmart and Unconventional with content that’s feel good and definitely worth a watch.

At university, Max lived in a house of six and they decided that each person would cook dinner for the whole house once a week. When it was Max’s turn he would only churn out one dish, and one dish only: his ultimate Chorizo Pesto Pasta Bake. He still loves it despite eating it a lot, so this is a perfect one to add to your regulars list.

Max made his pesto sauce from scratch by simply whizzing together the ingredients in a blender. This allows for maximum taste. He also took some advice from the MOB team to add some chilli flakes to the dish for an extra kick. Cheesy mozzarella, spicy chorizo and perfectly cooked pasta. An absolute winner.

Max's Tip

Making your own pesto is the best way to get the most amount of flavour. Bang the pesto out quickly in the blender.
