Seafood… and eat it

Easy cooking is what summer-holiday meals are all about for me. Seafood in particular makes for fast, flavour-forward dishes. Mostly I’m happy with a piece of grilled fish and a simple salad, especially if the fish has been freshly caught, but there’s also a time when I hanker for a kick of heat in the food and sharp, clean and fresh flavours from plenty of Asian herbs.


Going Global

I adore globe artichokes. When I see the first of the spring artichokes, I can’t help but feel excited. Usually I prefer a simple preparation: the classic way to deal with them is to simply boil or steam them whole until tender, with a few aromatics such as thyme, bay leaves and peppercorns in the water.
