Nigel Slater’s easygoing ready-when-you-are salad recipes

The most useful of recipes are those that do not demand our punctuality at the table. They carry with them a sense of ease, allowing them to be eaten at our pace rather than theirs. So you can pounce on them the moment they are made (that spirit of urgency to tuck in), but they are also happy to …

A local’s guide to Rome: 10 top tips

‘How do you cope with the tourists?” is a question that you get used to when living in Rome. But the truth is, for most of my time there, I hardly saw them. My first apartment was a stone’s throw from the Vatican, which meant that the local shops all sold rosary beads and holy water rather than …

Nigel Slater’s early summer salad recipes

As the days warm up, I find myself in need of recipes that involve slightly less time spent at a hot stove. The sort of unhurried cooking that fits comfortably into summer living, when there seems to be less time to cook and when the great outdoors beckons. There is not one of this month’s …

Tamal Ray’s recipe for apple and marzipan cake

It’s strange where the path of experimentation can take you in the kitchen. Today’s recipe started as an attempt at recreating a German apple cake my friend’s mother had made. But, as so often happens in our kitchen, its shelves buckling under the weight of ingredients bought in a fit of hunger, …

Anna Jones’s asparagus recipes

From Venice into the mountains: fizzing around on the prosecco trail

Few cities are more intimately acquainted with a drink than Venice is with prosecco.

Cook smart: Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipe cheats

I used to cheat much less in the kitchen. As a young cook, full of ideas – and of myself – things had to be done ‘properly’, even at home: tins were a no-no and the freezer a no-go; fancy appliances were a last resort. Only pure, raw ingredients were acceptable, and every bit of prep had to be done …

Meera Sodha’s recipe for vegan chocolate, date and coffee cake
