Summer Recipes

The warm months of summer produce a  fantastic range of vegetables to cook with to make simple, light suppers.

I also enjoy the wonderful fruits that Summer brings and then choosing how I am going to cook these fruits to get the most out of their flavour, for example whether to make jam or simply just poaching the fruit.  I especially enjoy using these delicious fruits and making refreshing drinks to enjoy on a hot summer's day with friends.

Some of the summer seasonal vegetables to look out for are:

  • Chickpeas
  • Chile Peppers
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Summer Squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
