The gateway month to summer, June is, fingers crossed, warm enough to enjoy being outdoors well into long, languid evenings. Last year sales of BBQs were extraordinarily high, and cooking outdoors is one of the strongest trends of the past 12 months, even though there’s nothing new about cooking over fire. With our eye on making the most of alfresco opportunities, the main feature is all about cooking over glowing embers. From the fabulous buffalo chicken on the cover to a smoky one-pan full English and a burger with an added gochujang punch, you could barbecue for each meal of the day if the fancy took you. We are realists though: oven instructions are also included. This month we are delighted that food and cookery writer Rosie Birkett joins us as…

cooking for cornwall

Chef Ali Pumfrey is helping her community in Cornwall in more ways than one. Ali runs her catering and events business, AP Chef, using locally sourced ingredients to help nearby businesses, and was also inspired to help in other ways during lockdown. “I’ve been running interactive online cooking classes for people who want to learn new skills,” she explains. “There’s an undeniable joy in the shared activity of cooking together online. It’s an atmosphere of camaraderie and everyone helps each other – it’s uniting people through food.

why regenerative agriculture matters

We hear the phrase ‘regenerative’ more frequently in relation to farming, whether it’s livestock or crops. That’s because the world’s topsoil is already acutely degraded, with the United Nations estimating that we may reach complete degradation in about 60 years if we don’t make changes.

New technologies are…
