As picnic season approaches, these favourites of ours, make an excellent addition to a picnic. Best eaten on the day they’re baked, or run them through an oven to refresh them the next. We love them sliced in half and filled with a fresh curd cheese or cream cheese, a sweet onion marmalade and some peppery rocket leaves.
Water kefir is a probiotic, naturally fizzy, fermented drink that tastes rather like lemonade, but milder. These non-alcoholic fermented drinks have grown in popularity in recent years, known for their gut-loving properties, natural fizz and interesting flavours. It relies on a natural SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) for fermentation.
Now that the English Asparagus season is underway, here’s a fresh take on a classic asparagus tart that’s really simple to make. Buy some pre-made/frozen filo pastry and you’re half-way there to a great lunch (or picnic) option. Combined with courgette and goat’s cheese, spring onion and fresh herbs, it also looks great too.
