Summer Root Vegetable Soup

By Jacqueline Meldrum Calling this a summer root vegetable soup may be a misnomer. Are these summer root vegetables? Well no, but they are pretty much year round crops in Scotland. They are grown or available in the summer, this is the summer and it is such a colourful cheerful soup. Yep I’m sticking with it being a summer soup.Do you eat soup in summer?We do. We eat a lot more salads and light meals in the summer, but we still crave soup, so I have to make a pot fairly regularly.This is Graham’s favourite soup. He loves a chunky root vegetable soup …read more

Tasting English Wine at Three Choirs Vineyard

By Karen Burns-Booth Tasting English Wine at Three Choirs Vineyard – An idyllic stay with fine food and wine at Three Choirs Vineyard in Gloucestershire. We enjoyed a relaxing and restorative day and night at this beautiful vineyard complex with its “restaurant with rooms” and were treated to some exceptional English wines and amazingly innovative food in the Vineyard Brasserie.

Fine Food at the Vineyard Brasserie

Set amidst the rolling hills of Gloucestershire is a jewel in the English wine crown, Three Choirs Vinyeard. I know of the vineyard from my days living in Herefordshire, which is one of the neighbouring “three counties” of …read more

Taco frittata

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche I thought about naming this recipe ‘fajita frittata’, but I thought that was just a little too much of a mouthful, even for me (though I have now got a great idea for a tongue twister…). So taco frittata, it is! I tend to put very similar ingredients in both my fajitas and my tacos, so either way works. It’s basically a veggie and bean taco, in frittata form – I do love giving an old favourite a revival in a completely new form!
This taco frittata is simple, but so so effective, and the flavours are gorgeous. Best frittata I’ve …read more

Spanish Garlic Shrimp (Gambas al Ajillo) – Top of the Tapas

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) If you ever find yourself in a Spanish restaurant, and they don’t have some version of this garlic shrimp recipe on the menu, immediately get up from your table, and leave. This would be the equivalent of a French bistro that doesn’t serve steak frites. What about vegetarian Spanish restaurants and French bistros? That’s a trick question, since those aren’t a thing. Anyway, the point here is that every Spanish restaurant serves this, and for very good reasons. It’s fast to make, gorgeous to look at, and, if you’re into garlic, one of the most delicious things you’ll ever eat. …read more

Spelt Porridge with Roasted Blueberries

By Erin Alderson If I had my way, my morning routine would be about a three-hour affair. I love quiet, leisurely mornings and most of the time they end in a filling, whole-grain breakfast. This spelt porridge takes a bit of time but it’s primarily hands-off cooking. If you’ve never tried spelt in the morning, it’s a favorite breakfast grain of mine.
Take for example these doughnuts, pancakes, dutch baby, and waffles. The key to a creamy porridge with spelt is the same method I use for making risotto: cracking the grain.
Unlike risotto, I crack the grain a bit smaller. I like the texture …read more

12 Fresh & Easy Weeknight Pasta Recipes for Summer

By Carrie Havranek Pasta has so much going for it: it’s inexpensive, it’s easy to cook, and it’s a blank canvas for the continuous parade of fresh veggies that appear from May through September.
I’m pretty certain I make pasta more in the summer than in the winter — and if that’s not the case, I’m definitely more creative and less inclined toward red sauces in the summertime!

Homemade Breadcrumbs + 3 Ways to Use Them

By Erin Alderson I realize that of all the recipes I could share, breadcrumbs may seem like the least cool thing. Plus, do a search on the internet and there are thousands of different ways people make breadcrumbs. Yet, I’m sharing anyway. Primarily because it’s less important how you make breadcrumbs. It’s more important that you do it and you have a few ways in your repertoire to use them.
I’m really the only bread-eater in our house and while I try and freeze bread, I still end up with a stale, end-of-loaf piece. Of course, these breadcrumbs don’t have to wait until you …read more

Non Alcoholic Sangria (Sangria Mocktail)

By Bintu Believe me when I say right here and right now that there is no better drink than this Non Alcoholic Sangria.
Bursting with fresh fruity flavours, whipping up a huuuuge jug of this Sangria Mocktail is just the perfect thing for drinks parties, brunches, children’s teas parties, summer picnic, weddings and just for a good all get together with long lost friends. Bonus is that it can be made ahead of time, can be doubled or tripled and very easily adapted into a more traditional to a grownup version like this Sangria Cocktail.

Beet-Cured Salmon Gravlax – Easier and Slower Than You Think

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Even though I only do it once every few years or so, making salmon gravlax at home is a fun weekend project, and with very little effort, you can produce some very impressive results. I’ve always done this with the traditional fresh dill sprigs, but after enjoying a beet-stained version at Plaj, I decided to try my hand. And, also stain my hand. If you’re just doing a small tail piece like I did, these times and measurements should get you close to what you see here, but if you’re feeling adventurous, and want to do something larger, then you …read more

Puff Pastry Tomato, Onion & Feta Tart - Vegan Recipe

By Jacqueline Meldrum I love a puff pastry tart. This tomato, onion and feta tart is my latest and it’s definitely a keeper.I call this a tart, but would you call this a pie? We wouldn’t call this a pie here in the UK as a pie has pastry all round, a pastry lid or at least some depth to the filling. I have a feeling it might be a pie elsewhere in the world. What would you call it?Ready Rolled Puff PastryI started this tart with ready rolled puff pastry, because life is too short to make your own puff pastry.If you …read more
