Cookery

Ham and fruit jam

IT IS the Epiphany season, and thoughts turn to crowns. We do not have much of a culinary tradition for this feast, but per­haps this Epiphany ham crown recipe may help

Add to your repertoire — go vegan

THERE are many reasons why we shall be celebrating Christmas with a vegan lunch this year. Vegan cookery is still a test-piece for me; so I went to the Vegetarian Society website for some ideas. My centre­piece will be:   Chestnut and butter-bean Welling­ton for 4.1 500g block of puff or shortcrust ...

Truffling, not turkey

EACH Christmas, my sister produces a variety of handmade gifts for people. Last year, we all had decorated photo frames and embroidered hankies, along with no end of chocolate truffles. Making confectionery can be fun; so here are a couple of recipes

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

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

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

ALL the summer displays in the shops look increasingly forlorn at the moment; and the salad ingredients in the fridge are more often passed over in favour of hot veg and soups. 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
