It’s the month where we’re not quite ready to wave goodbye to summer, with all its colourful and fresh food. So this issue is an ode to the last of the summer delights. We proudly saying that it’s OK to eat fresh and light food, but with the assurance that it’ll be filling and substantial.

And with the kids being back at school, make their weekends and after‑school meals something to smile about with the fancy food on p50. But be warned, the Veggie hash brown heart puffs may not make it to their mouths as you’ll love them just that little bit too much!

Although stressful at times, never underestimate the joy of cooking for others. The joy of being the bearer of foods that will make others happy will never fade. If you’re the kind of person who relates to this, then welcome to our magazine!
We have salads to tempt all those salad dodgers, as well as meaty magnificence on the barbecue. And if you have a free weekend coming up, why not try to learn the skill of curing salmon? It’ll open up a whole new world of flavour to you! Lastly, if it’s just too damn hot to get that oven on, the full-of-fun Cheat’s kids’ cakes will make hearts sing with happiness.
We’d love to bring sunshine into your meals, so make sure you bask in it...
July is always a month of such promise. The berries and salads are in full force, with the first of the British season always tasting so much better after having been being starved of home-grown produce through the winter months.
We thought we’d embrace the art of making the perfect salads with a whistle-stop tour of edible leaves and how to use them to their full potential. But fear not, all this healthy food has left us wanting more, so the Diner delights are for those who, like us, enjoy to indulge from time to time. The Frickles (fried pickles) are as delicious as they sound. It’s also nearly time for the school holidays, so why not bake up some delightful sweet or savory nibbles for the hungry hoards?
The height of summer is upon us! We hope you get to enjoy every last meal – life is too short not to, after all!
Come with us on a culinary journey!

A visit to the local market is always a true joy and at this time of year, the colours and textures of fresh food are as delicious as they are inspiring.

The daffodils are starting to appear, the greenery is returning to the trees – new life is everywhere. And March is the perfect month to celebrate it. We’ve got Easter coming up at the very end of the month (chocolate eggs, here we come!) and before that, Mothering Sunday, a day dedicated to spoiling your mum! On that note, we’ve created some wonderful brunch recipes to give her the best start to her special day and, if you want to give her a heartfelt gift, how about making a batch of our delicious passionfruit shortbread?

You don’t have to personally know cupid to feel his presence this month – be it through oversized cards that are covered in hearts and roses or the numerous adverts for engagement rings. You may feel the pressure to go out for dinner, only to be placed in the corner, squashed up against other couples among a sea of red heart-shaped balloons – not very romantic! Why do it? So we’ve got a suggestion for you – forget those reservations, send the kids off to the grandparents, switch off the TV, give social media a miss and turn up the heat in the kitchen. We’ve got some fantastic ideas for meals that are sure to impress and delight but won’t require hours upon hours of labour. And if you just want to indulge yourself, you absolutely should – love yourself, not just those around you!
