Lamb with Fresh Dates (6)

A slow cooked lamb recipe from Cyprus which i found in Georgina Hayden’s ” Taverna: Recipes from a Cypriot Kitchen.” Serve with hot bulghar wheat or coriander roasted potatoes.

Green Sauce (3/4 cup)

I make this Salsa Verde to go with Courgette Frittata but it also goes well with grilled or steamed vegetables or on fresh or toasted bread. Vary the herbs according to what is in season, and adjust the tartness and flavourings to complement the dish you are serving it with. It is from ” The Green’s Cook Book” by Deborah Madison and Edward Espe Brown.

Lemon Roasted Feta with Tomatoes (2-4)

A colourful dish for summer which i like to make using cherry tomatoes from ” A Modern Way to Eat” by Anna Jones.You could also serve the roasted feta in a greek salad or crumbled over roasted squash. This will serve two as a main or four as part of a meal. Sometimes i serve this with some home made oven chips, or with warmed pittas or crusty bread to mop up the juice. You could also serve a green salad alongside.

Tartiflette (4)

Since Lockdown has prevented me from realising most of my travel plans for the summer I have decided to cook my way around the world, a country a week, for the foreseeable future and guided but not led by the alphabet. As a result of existing menu plans I began this week in France . Here is an easy, classic dish from the region that comes from The Hairy Bikers. It’s very moreish comfort food.
