Seasonal recipes for July
This is our favourite bit – what to do with all this seasonal produce in your kitchen
Fennel, pear and caramelised pecan salad with croutons
This salad is crunchy, sweet, salty, punchy, bright and so many other amazing things we're pretty sure everyone will love this salad.
Spiced aubergine tagine with sweet apricots
This is one of our favourite recipes at any time of the year, but when we can use fresh local produce it tastes that much better!
This cooling cucumber and yoghurt based dip is the ideal addition to any July BBQ or picnic.
Grilled Romaine Caesar
Think you know Caesar salads, think again. We love to drench it in our Caesar dressing and serve it with crunchy croutons. Take our word for it, you won't ever go back to regular Caesars.
All that’s left to do now is pick a recipe and get to your local market!
