Salmon and sea bass carpaccio

By Silvia Nacamulli, August 1, 2014

This is the Italian Jewish version of ceviche and is an ideal summer dish - great as a starter or as part of a buffet. the

simple marinade in lemon and chives allows the fish to shine. You can replace salmon and sea bass with any other fish you prefer - sea bream or trout are great alternatives. I like to serve it on a bed of rocket, for extra texture, colour and flavour, but you can

Griddled courgette and halloumisalad with toasted quinoa

By James Ramsden, July 18, 2014

Toasted quinoa is an excellent thing to have kicking about. Scattered over salads, tossed through pasta, or whatever, it adds a great nutty crunch to food. This particular recipe makes more than you need - it seemed to me that if you're going to toast quinoa, you may as well do more than a single tablespoon. Store it in a jar.

Serves: 2

Broad bean, potato and mint salad

By Denise Phillips, July 17, 2014

Young, sweet and tender, broad beans are best when first in season. Older beans require double podding before use. To do this, remove them from their pods and plunge the beans into boiling water to loosen them from their skin. This vibrant green bean is very versatile - as a side salad, in risottos, pilaffs, soups, stews, purée or even as a paté.

Rhubarb and strawberry cookie streusel muffins

By Marcy Goldman, July 10, 2014

These huge, exciting muffins are more accurately delectable, single coffee-cakes than they are muffins. Brightened with chunks of garden-picked rhubarb and fresh, diced, plump strawberries, they are further dolled up with a halo of shortbread-cookie streusel. Huge caps, buttery cookie topping – this is a cause for a celebration!

I am indecently proud of this recipe. My wife is no great fan of home smoked mackerel or very sharp/sour food, but she loves the combination of mackerel and this salsa.
