Cookery

Food on camera

“YOU say summer cannot end And you will never lie,” Charles Causley sings — and so do I, when Septem­ber, as it has this year, changes gear from August so imperceptibly

Summer’s final fling

SUMMER now flees from our grasp as fat fruits drop in the orchards. And, although memories of chilled white wine at beachside tavernas recede, this Seafood rice salad may keep the season alive for a little longer. Frozen cooked prawns are fine here; just defrost them in a sieve under a cold tap. Oth...

Eggplant medley

IF YOU are lucky enough to eat at my friend Jenny’s table, you know that you will taste nothing better anywhere else. We sat down to a rich spinach, date, and almond salad recently, followed by a dish of lentils and al dente vegetables, complemented by a simple au­­bergine purée and Gre...

Saint for all seasons

JULY: the schools’ exodus, and the feast of St James (25 July). The Cam­ino de Santiago is the pilgrim­age route leading to his shrine in Compostela, northern Spain. It is a timely reminder that our task in building and perfecting this “City of God” transcends borders and status. Celebrate with Pael...

Too chilly for chilled

The watercress and spinach will be welcome in a warming soup, and the avocados will also have to reappear in a different guise. The blueberries and strawberries are going to manifest themselves in a fruit br&u...

Lamb and eggs

WITH the spring come new lambs, images of Jerusalem at Passover, the ultimate sacrifice and victory. But older beasts are as good, too, by now reaching hogget and mutton. Do try them, as the flavour is definitely rewarding

Classic curry

GEORGE’s coming-of-age today calls for an April-green, white-and-gold menu of Green Thai curry that will accommodate carnivorous granny and vegan girlfriend equally comfortably. There are ripe mangoes in the market, which will be a good complement, with plain rice, and then fried bananas and coconut...

Lenten tides

LENT again, and a thousand things to do with fish. Starting so early this year, it truly overlaps with winter; the French dish brandade de morue is in order

Pride of Poland

I AM still exploring A Village Cookbook, a fund-raiser for St Wulfran’s, Ovingdean. Bernadette Skinner contributed a recipe in memory of her father, a Polish airman, who died when she was 19. It is Bigos, the Polish national dish
