Here is one of our favourite Alison Lambert recipes from a few years ago — home-made fruit pastilles.
Beetroot are in season and taste fabulous. This recipe is an oldie but a goody. I had purple and golden beetroot, so cooked them separately and followed the same technique but added different...
This is another one of my ‘‘what-to-eat?’’ meals. Cauliflower cheese is always a favourite, but it also makes a wonderful comforting pie.
Kimchi is a fermented cabbage. Once you have tasted kimchi’s fermented spicy hot, crunchy properties, you will want to have it at home.
Tomatoes are still abundant at the moment and it is a great time to get preserving. Tomato chilli jam is sticky, sweet and tangy.
Potato salads come in many varieties and they seldom disappoint. This one is inspired by the summer flavours of Spain.
Eating zucchini this way adds a bit of fun to the dish. I simply dress it with pesto and guess what? You don’t even need to cook it!

This cake is simple to prepare and absolutely delicious to eat.
For me, strawberries are a sign that summer is here and Christmas is on the way. You can make this without an ice cream machine and adding crunchy meringues gives it a lovely surprise!

Pickles are always good to get under way before the crazy festive season hits. I realise veggies are hard to come by but carrots, fennel and celery are available and make for a refreshing jar...
I just can’t get enough of asparagus at the moment. One of the great things about this vegetable is that it takes minutes to prepare and minutes to cook. Asparagus loves a little butter...
This cake is absolutely delicious. The simple combination of carrot and coconut works a treat. You should keep this recipe as it makes a wonderful cake for any occasion!
The lettuce leaves need to be robust, with a strong tasting, almost bitter, note, which is why frisee is perfect. A warm, piquant dressing is a must, as it brings this well-executed...
Gnudi is a form of dumpling, similar to gnocchi. The main difference is that gnudi uses ricotta instead of potatoes.
This salad comes from looking in the cupboards and fridge and rummaging in the garden.
I love simple recipes like this. They are not only quick to prepare but also very adaptable.
These Japanese pancakes are popping up everywhere at the moment.
