I am continuing to cook my way through ” New Kitchen Basics” by Claire Thomson and eagerly awaiting her next book which is out in September. Use the best quality cheese for this summery recipe . Peaches work best as the fruit, but any ripe stone fruit will work. You can leave out the bread if wished, but it bulks it up a bit if included.

I grew up eating beetroot from my parent’s allotment, always cooked in a pressure cooker, and freshly cooked beetroot remains one of my favourite vegetables. My friend Angela pointed me to this recipe from Waitrose.com and as I already had most of the ingredients I decided to cook it the same day.Slight tweak when i got to my local green grocer’s and saw they had bunches of heritage beetroot. Delicious and refreshing especially for scorching days like this….carrot, beetroot and orange are such a classic combination.
This is from ” A Taste of Home” by Angela Hartnett. If you like you can collect the seeds from the squash then wash and toast them to sprinkle over the salad before serving.
Another lovely salad for hot summer days from Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics”. Ideally it would be greener than pictured- i should have brought a bigger bunch of parsley! You should be searching through a sea of green for the bulghar and cauliflower.
