This summer salad is a perfect accompaniment to any lamb, fish or chicken dishes but is also a complete meal in its own right.
As we race full speed ahead to Christmas there seems to be more jobs than hours in a day. So once you have finished your celebrations for the silly season remember to take some time to rest and relax.
A chocolate raspberry trifley thing adapted from a recipe from Nigel Slater. This dish has everything I love about Christmas, it's boozy, chocolatey and fruity and its meant to be served cold - perfect for our Christmas Climate. You can use your favourite tipple in this recipe - but a good sherry or brandy works best!
The meteorologists don’t seem to be able to tell us exactly what sort of summer we are going to have. Yes, it is meant to be dry but just when that dry period is about to start is anyone’s guess and there will also be downpours and the possibility of some intense tropical storms. So be prepared for the unexpected.
