A cold summer soup in the right context is refreshing and really wakes up the taste buds. However, in the wrong context a cold soup is jarring and unpleasant. Pick your moment wisely. Serve as a first course on a hot day, in small portions, with this garnish.

Last year during deepest, darkest lockdown I ordered a box of heirloom tomatoes from The Tomato Stall on the Isle of Wight. A far cry from the refrigerated packs of tomatoes available at the supermarket, these have so much flavour and taste of summer. What a revelation. We ate tomatoes in everything for almost anContinue reading “Heirloom Tomato Salad”

Tzatziki is my preferred condiment of choice, and while I certainly don’t disapprove of the shop-bought varieties, my recipe for homemade tzatziki is completely worthContinue reading “Greek Marinated Pork Kebabs”
