Enoying #summertime - summer marches on as the glorious 12th approaches. There will be grouse on the menu once prices descend from traditionally stratospheric levels! We will be pairing the birds with mulberries from a secret location - Scottish girolles too, if we can track some down
Thank goodness Roy Grace was there. Even though the menu was to die for, it meant no harm could possibly come to the best-selling crime writer Peter James and his lovely bride Lara Loveys, or their guests (or even Jeremy and his staff!) when they were married at Jeremy’s on July 23.
Midsummer arrives with the extra frisson of an Ashes series upon us. They are partial to witchety grubs in Australia and apparently insects are going to be the big food story of the future in the UK.
Capricious spring, a beguiling season for all of us with the promise of light warmer days with magnolia and other tender blooms - fragile and beautiful, but prey to wind and late frost. Winter is past, yet not quite summer for chefs seeking inspiration through incoming ingredients.
