A delicious trifle for spring from Gill Meller.
This is from ” Rhodes Around Britain” by Gary Rhodes. Don’t be alarmed by the quantity it makes- it will keep in the fridge for up to ten days and also freezes well so can be divided into batches and frozen for later use.
A mussel soup with saffron and wine which I found in ” The Little Book of Big Soups” by Lindsay Bareham. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to mop up the delicious liquor.
A seasonal recipe from Nigel Slater. You will have Damsons and custard left over so whip up some more cream the next day and treat yourself to a Fool.
I have been continuing to cook my way through Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics” and am very much looking forward to her new book coming out in September which i have to confess to pre-ordering. These potatoes are based on a favourite french gratin dish popular in the Savoy Alps and just what you need after a day on the ski slopes, or walking in the mountains, or indeed any time.
Another quick and delicious pasta dish from ” Jamie’s Italy” by Jamie Oliver.
A Galician recipe from Maria Jose Sevilla’s ” Spain on a Plate”.
I picked the first Globe Artichokes from our allotment this week and that prompted me to prepare this Provencal dish from Ruth Watson’s ” The Really Helpful Cookbook”. The Globe Artichokes were served on a separate plate and dipped in the garlicky aioli along with the other vegetables. You can vary the vegetables but should include a combination of hot and cold. My vegetarian husband simply omitted the prawns.
