‘COMMUNITY’ WAS THE theme for this month’s issue, which centred on the idea of bringing people together. An optimistic start to the entertaining season, whatever shape or form that entertaining season takes! In 2020, parties might be smaller, socially distanced and the rules different in every state, but nobody can hold a good cook down! With get-togethers tighter, but the desire to belong stronger, connecting over food together has never been more important (even if BYO now means hand sanitiser). Whether you are entertaining for two or 20, this issue has your back. What’s important right now is simplicity and generosity. Hosting a great shindig, when you are able, may be one of the best ways to reconnect with family and friends after the disjointed nature of the year. No one…

I just wanted to take a moment to say how fantastic the past few issues of delicious . magazine have been. I have been reading the magazine since its inception way back in 2002 (even becoming an overseas subscriber whilst away for a few years) and have always thoroughly enjoyed the articles as well as cooking the many wonderful recipes. My July 2020 issue arrived last week and I think it is the best Italian issue ever, every recipe not only looks delicious but is doable, whether it be for a family meal or a more impressive celebration. I realise that with cooking, we are always learning and discovering new methods and ingredients, and it’s nice to experiment with these occasionally. But when it comes to cooking for friends and…

It’s a great excuse to graze on delicious dishes while being just that little bit naughty with the things in the glass alongside. Fizzy wines are compulsory, and Bloody Marys feel righteous.

NEED A NIGHT off from 2020? Chef Andrew McConnell’s suave new supper club, Gimlet, will take you back to a simpler time when waiters wore white waistcoats and appetisers were ferried around on silver platters. Start with the venue’s namesake sipper, a classic gin and lime cocktail made from a housemade citrus cordial distilled from orange, bergamot, yuzu and finger lime. “It’s beautifully balanced and subtley perfumed with citrus; it’s something we’re really proud of,” McConnell says. While the gimlet will stay on the menu year-round, other items will be shaken and stirred with the seasons. “What people drink in summer differs to what they like to drink in winter. The seasons dictate what we serve and we’re lucky to have a wonderful family of suppliers that bring something special to the menu.” But…
