  • 8 oranges
  • 250 g sugar caster or granulated
  • 300 ml water


  • Peel the rind from two oranges very thinly. Cut into narrow strips and plunge into boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  • Remove the pith and peel from all the oranges. Slice horizontally and remove any pips. Reassemble the layers of each orange and fasten together with a cocktail stick.
  • Put the sugar and 1/4 pint (150 ml) water in a saucepan. Dissolve over a low heat, and then bring to a boil. Boil until the syrup changes to a golden brown.
  • Remove pan from heat and pour in the rest of the water immediately, taking care that it does not splash. Heat again slowly to dissolve the caramel.
  • When cold, pour over the oranges and garnish with the orange rind.

Food activist and childhood nutrition advocate Tamzin Cochrane helps the busiest of people to cook up something healthy and delicious, even after a long day. She also helps companies and schools educate around—and create a culture and environment that truly supports healthy eating. Decades in the foodservice and hospitality industry have given Tamzin a well-rounded perspective on mealtime. She is passionate about bringing back the lost art of families and friends cooking together, and she loves seeing people enjoy the amazing tastes and textures of their communal effort. Inspiring children to cook and expand there horizons on food is very important. She shares this message through virtual coaching and video courses, by speaking at corporations, schools, and events, and through her recently-released video courses. Tamzin is found most often at The Pinny and Trowel Cooking School, which she opened in early 2020, it is located in Austin TX. Tamzin was born in England, grew up in Scotland, and now lives in Austin, Texas with her husband (who incidentally, is Scottish but grew up in England) and their children.
