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

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

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

Festive legacy

Simon Walsh makes Sprout and Stilton risotto and Cranberry and chocolate trifle

Recipes from a small village

ST WULFRAN’s, Ovingdean, must have convivial parish gatherings, judging by A Village Cookbook, put together by Shirley Ross, Jay Butler, and many of the congregation. Most of the recipes are for puddings, cakes, and biscuits, and there are some wonderful Christmas recipes
