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.

Roasted Root Panzanella (4)

I love to eat roasted root vegetables and last night i cooked this recipe from Anna Jones’s ” A Modern Way to Eat”. Panzanella is usually a dish for late summer when tomatoes are at their very best, but this makes a great alternative for other times of year. I used a seeded granary bread, which worked very well, but sourdough would work well too. I’m going to eat the rest tonight with some grilled goats cheese over the top. You could also have a green salad alongside.

The Butternut squash can be replaced with other varieties of squash for example onion, acorn, kabocha or Crown Prince.

Sausages with Parsnips and Onions (4)

This is from Hugh Fearnley- Whittinstall’s ” Three Good Things”. I like to make it with Pork and Apple Sausages but any good quality pork sausage will do very nicely. You can swap the parsnips for potatoes- waxy varieties like Pink Fir Apple or Charlotte work well roasted whole in their skins.
