“From 12 year old Cassidy on Australian Junior MasterChef. The recipe recommended 25 minutes preparation and 25 minutes cooking but to be honest I think I would need at least 40 minutes to prep this dish and get it together for cooking so have put down their recommend time - depends on your skill levels.”
