Thyme-roasted tomato + rice salad with preserved lemon + sumac

I’ve also got some great new news to share too… the release date has now been brought forward a few weeks from April 21st to April 7th, so that means there’s only a little over 8 weeks until it’s out in the world! You can pre-order online from most sites, but do make sure you ask your local book store too, as I’m sure many will happily pre-order and put aside a copy for you. I’m also going to have signed copies available on my site (for NZ postage only at this stage due to mega covid-induced price hikes in shipping) in the next few weeks, so if you’d like one of them, keep an eye out. It won’t be until next month that the real glut begins and this is when roasting tomatoes to intensify becomes my go-to flavour-bomb addition to late summer salads.

10 really good gluten-free summer desserts

You guys know I love a good dessert and if I’m being completely honest, Christmas lunch is all about the pudding for me. I’ve rounded up 10 of my favourite summer dessert recipes from my site and my work for Cuisine Magazine, which would all make a mighty fine addition to your Christmas feast (well, for my Southern Hemisphere readers anyway!). all gluten-free, many are dairy-free and there’s a bunch of vegan ones too.

20 flavour-packed vegetarian Christmas salads+ sides

Sure lunch at the Grandparents was pretty traditional, but my family only ate the salads, vegetable sides and mums silverbeet + feta filo pie Us kids would hurry to grab a slice before the rest of our extended family got in, knowing it would be the most substantial part of our meal (gosh, not that we ever went hungry with all the amazing desserts my Nana made!). Below, you’ll find 20 of my favourite flavour-packed vegetarian sides and salads, some are ones I’ve shared on this site over the years, while others I’ve created for my regular column in Cuisine Magazine over the past 3 years.

Strawberry, rocket (arugula) + goats cheese salad with black pepper dressing

but I seem to keep missing the moment when strawberries are in season and everyone’s looking for festive recipes, probably because I’m running around like a headless chicken most of November and all of December. Using only a handful of ingredients and dependable flavours, this salad has a lot more going for it than it may appear at first glance. Fresh peppery bite from the rocket (arugula) is further accentuated with the black pepper dressing, sweetness from the berries and creamy goats cheese to pull it altogether. one of those organised folk who are already thinking that far ahead, pop this simple salad on your menu.
