Beetroot, leek and chickpea fritters

These fritters are full of nutrients, texture and flavour. You can easily add your favourite herbs or pulses to suit.

Silverbeet gratin

Silverbeet gratin

Silverbeet grows well in our climate and we are constantly looking for ways to use it. I love this decadent dish, which when served alongside any dinner casts a new light on a sometimes overlooked vegetable.

Orange posset with blackberries

Orange posset with blackberries

This recipe is an old English one and with fresh blackberries in season, it just seems right to partner the two.

Homestyle cream corn

Homestyle cream corn

Corn has arrived and this homemade version of creamed corn is simply irresistible. Serve it alongside grilled chicken or pork, although I love it on hot buttered toast.

Flavours to relish with almost anything

This relish is fresh, spicy and crunchy and good with almost everything!

Oyster mushroom, blanco pizza

Oyster mushroom, blanco pizza

Any pizza is great, but when scattered with oyster mushrooms, garlic and Parmesan, it becomes a match made in heaven!

Green beans and lovage

Green beans and lovage

Lovage has been the herb of choice this summer as the fresh celery-like flavour naturally lifts any green vegetable. If you haven't any handy, try sage, basil or parsley.

Freshly-pickled peaches

Freshly-pickled peaches

I love these as they are sweet and tart and go beautifully on a picnic alongside cold roasted meats, or use as you would a pickle with cheese.

Tomato, basil and zucchini soup

If, like me, you have plenty of ripe tomatoes and zucchinis growing, this soup works a treat.
