A while ago during an interview, the chef Yotam Ottolenghi reminded me that we eat with our eyes first. Of course, as he also knows, stunning presentation can only go so far, but these days we're all paying much more attention to the aesthetics of the food we cook, even if only to share our latest creation on Instagram!
Flicking through this issue, you'll see we've created a feast for all the senses, with summer providing all the raw ingredients we need to create effortlessly beautiful food that tastes as good as it looks.
Not surprisingly, seasonal fruit features heavily this month, from Cath Kidston's pretty pink strawberry and coconut cake, to Rachel Demuth's savoury dishes incorporating fruit such as cherries, melon and nectarines.
Sarah Raven is well known for her skills in both her garden at Perch Hill and in the kitchen, and her latest book is all about using good quality seasonal ingredients to create dishes that are good for you too. Her tempting menu on is a real treat. Of course, if anyone knows a thing or two about seasonal eating it's
the Italians, and Sicilian food writer Veronica Lavenia says no self-respecting Italian would eat a strawberry in December – so that's why we must gorge on them now! Turn to page 50 for Veronica's three-step recipes for a simply delicious feast.
The dashing Flynn twins behind The Happy Pear cafés have just published their second book, and they share their story and some of their favourite family-friendly recipes. Their veggie burger is ideal for the barbecue this month – or why not go beyond burgers and try some of Ben Tish's innovative grilled veggie dishes instead?
Happy summer eating!
