For those new to the land of preseerves a cheese is not to be confused with the dairy product of the same name. A fruit cheese like this Spiced Cherry Cheese is a firmer version of jam often served with cheese and crackets etc.
A deconstructed peach melba is so much more fun and grown-up than the usual peach half and a dollop of ice-cream that so many restaurants think does the job. My version is healthy, sugar free and just jolly damn tasty, the perfect end to a super supper.
Basil lemonade is the perfect refreshing drink when the sun is shining and warming your skin as you bask in the glory that is summer. Aaah doesn’t that sound perfect, pity the reaity of the great British summer doesn’t always quite hit the mark!
Strawberry, sage and red wine jam is definitely one for the grown-ups. This is not your sickly sweet confection that the kids would splatter all over sandwiches and toast, oh no this mixes sweet with savoury and just a touch of boozy fun. The perfect preserve really!
These Greek style green beans make a great light lunch or as part of the traditional Greek style mezze starter with a main meal. They are also good as a side dish with roasted or grilled meats as part of a main course.
Strawberry Chia Parfet is the perfect dessert for those looking for a healthy sugar free alternative to the usual sweet summer time puddings. The chia seeds are packed with protein and with the goodness of strawberries, almond milk, yogurt and almonds you really do have something heavenly and healthy too.
This dairy free and sugar free coconut and almond ice-cream is the perfect summer dessert for those who just can’t go the whole milk/cream route, are cutting back on refined sugar but still want their fix of summer time ice-cream. It is so tasty even those who aren’t on any sort of food restriction will…
In Greece wild greens like dandelion leaves, rocket etc are a staple of Spring and early summer and this wild greens with eggs recipe is the perfect way to use them when the greens are at their best.
