Ode to Summer

I just adore food. Growing it, cooking it, buying it, eating it, serving it up to friends, photographing it, talking about it, reading about it… yes, I’m obsessed. Happily!

And this, dear friends is the utter joy of summer to me – sunny days, champagne, friends and cooking food for that was growing in my garden just hours before.

Bruschetta of cherry tomatoes, chives and holy beans, on cornbread I made yesterday smothered in the delicious goodness of homemade hummus, served with a grated daikon, courgette and kohlrabi salad with sesame seeds and rice wine vinegar. All done spontaneously when friends dropped in with a bottle of very nice bubbles.

A very satisfying way to end the weekend!
