Cookery

Cake and biscuits

HERE are some gentle autumnal tea-time recipes: the first is for a Carrot cake, and the second is an austerity recipe for honey biscuits from the Ministry of Food, republished in Elizabeth Gowing’s The Little Book of Honey (Elbow,

Supper for the saints

I HAVE just got back from New York, which was in the grip of elec­tion fever. Our Episcopalian cousins do take the seasons ser­iously, and are strong on the “canvass” where con­gregations pledge their giving for the year ahead

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...

Rita brought round some of her Borscht, which was just the thing for a horrible day. This quantity should serve about four ...

Best of British  

THE church calendar may have entered Ordinary Time in May, but it’s an eventful season for produce. The asparagus crop runs from April and certainly into June, stretching from soup to picnics

For vegan guests

A VEGAN supper is required at short notice on a Friday that has turned sur­prisingly cold. 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...
