An easy and typical dish from Poland which I found in ” Polska” by Zuza Zak.In the cooler months she suggests serving with mashed potato and Beetroot Puree. In summer local asparagus and some new potatoes with dill.
A Korean dish of marinated meat and my go to dish whenever i visit my local restaurant Per and Kor. Its run by a lovely couple- she is Korean and he is Persian and I have never been disappointed with the food although there can be a bit of a wait. They serve their Bulgogi with crunchy lettuce leaves to wrap the beef. This version is from ” A Flash in the Pan” by John Whaite. Start making this in the morning to give the beef plenty of time to marinate.
A most delicious version of macaroni cheese from Diana Henry. It makes a little crabmeat go a long way, and will become my go to version of this dish.

A delicious recipe for summer months from Nigel Slater. If you have fresh beans and peas, use them, but if not frozen work well too. If you like you can serve on top of sliced tomatoes, or toasted sourdough. Or serve some fresh crusty bread alongside.
A summer favourite from Claire Thomson’s ” Home Cookery Year”. It is bst served warm rather than piping hot. Serve with a green salad. You can use the same method and switch around the summer vegetables- baked cherry tomatoes, fried squash or blanched broad or green beans will all work well.
Another very good tortilla from ” Morito” by Sam and Sam Clark . In spring the spinach can be replaced with wild garlic leaves if you have these available locally.
