Traditionally May is a time of great celebrations when flowers begin to bloom, crops sprout in earnest and the summer of plenty lies ahead. Named after Maia, the Greek goddess of fertility and abundance, May has plenty to offer, not least the arrival of the English asparagus season, National Vegetarian Week and two bank holiday weekends!
In this issue, Kathryn Bruton creates everyday meals using a variety of fresh spring greens, from wild garlic to watercress; Jon Bennett catches up with street-food chefs David and Charlotte Bailey, enjoying their wholefood meals in a bowl; and Rachel Demuth gives the humble spud a new lease of life with her trademark global twist.
It's fun to take inspiration from international dishes when it comes to cooking for guests, and there's no better crowd-pleaser than Mexican food, so you'll love our menu from popular restaurant Benito's Hat. For a fresh take on desserts, you might not immediately think of Pakistani cuisine but, as Sumayya Usmani reveals, people in Pakistan love their sweets – her frozen kulfi sticks are the perfect treat on a sunny day.
Life is all about balance, so we're also focusing on mindful eating, with delicious healthy recipes from blogger Annie Clarke, and we meet food writer Madeleine Shaw, who has inspired many of us to 'get the glow' with her positive outlook on food and lifestyle. Madeleine believes we all need to be kinder to ourselves, and her approach to healthy eating is all about nourishment, not punishment, a philosophy we think is well worth celebrating.
