Clam chowder is an American classic. You will find it on the menu at any American restaurant. And if it’s not written on the menu, you can safely assume that it will appear by default at the soup and salad bar. This version is a New England clam chowder, which distinguishes it from other chowders based on tomatoes. It was also our mother’s favourite – perhaps a memory of her upbringing in Rhode Island, where given the chowder’s official name, it must have been a staple.
This cheesecake is a perfect partner for summer strawberries.
Here’s a cake that’s a cross between a blueberry muffin and a Dorset apple cake. It tastes fantastic.

This recipe replicates the crusty and crunchy style of cornbread that is made in a cast iron skillet (but uses a normal cake tin). It also uses a cornmeal that can now be found in most supermarkets.
Now this is an after dinner treat. Picked by mum and dad at local farms and maybe neighbours houses — it’s the perfect after dinner treat.
