This may seem a little over-the-top for a dinner party – but you will certainly make an impression!
Most cooks agree that when you have an amazing ingredient it is best to prepare it as simply as possible. And they are not wrong: this must be the very best way to eat asparagus. Steamed and presented in a big stack to share. Butter, salt and lemon are optional extras…
These are outrageously delicious. Serve warm as an hors d’oeuvre.
The Italian tricolor? A caprese salad? But it’s not mozzarella – it’s tofu. Tofu and avocado are a match made in heaven – so can the partnership be more inclusive ? Absolutely.

An American favourite and an excellent way with cinnamon.
A delicious salad of fresh vegetables, typical of those grown in my childhood home!
These were trending a while back, but they were made famous long ago by Peter Gordon at Kopapa in Covent Garden London (now closed). I had them there and thought them a bit gloopy (sorry Peter/Turkey).
These bars are delicious. They are full of good things but low in added sugar and added fats.
Dad’s Vietnamese summer rolls with nuoc cham dipping sauce is a must learn. A tasty salad in a roll just waiting to be dipped in a beautiful nuoc cham!
‘Veg going mouldy… easy… turn them into a warming soup!’
Dad made these for my girlfriend and mum at the weekend. A very pleasant surprise before dinner — with caviar!
‘Here in the WDC household, we love sandwiches – and when Dad says he’s popping of to our local butchers, CD Jennings & Sons, you know it’s going to be a special sandwich!’
Classic Spaghetti Carbonara for lunch today! Though no pancetta! Peas will have to do! https://t.co/9flTlFS78e via… https://t.co/zZHnt5QZya
