HOT TREND Pea desserts Breathe new life into the humble pea by giving them the sweet treatment in puddings and bakes HOT TREND Fresh from the pod or straight from the freezer, the sweetness of peas lends itself to desserts very well, and the slightly earthy undertone works brilliantly with vanilla, lemon or mint. This trend is coming through on restaurant menus and in home baking – we’ve seen a pea sorbet served with chocolate ganache, pea crumbs with yogurt and lime ice cream, pea and mint ice cream, and Instagram-favourite green pea cakes with lemon frosting. Topping the list was a divine concoction of a pea mousse with a ‘pebble’ of sorrel parfait and some lemon jelly hidden inside, devised by Greg Marchand, executive chef Austin Johnson and pastry chef Kelly Nam of…

have you tried… nasturtiums?

What are they? Nasturtium are bright flowers, usually orange, yellow or red, with round leaves. Why are we talking about them? Edible flowers are all the rage at the moment (see right), turning up in countless dishes from salads to cakes (see Diana Henry’s recipes on page 78). Why are nasturtiums particularly great? First of all, they look good – their brightly coloured petals add a pretty pop of colour to your plate and can elevate the look of a dish to restaurant standards. They’re also easy to grow and their flowers contain vitamin C. But of course, the most important factor is taste. What do they taste like? You can eat the leaves, seeds, pods and flowers. The flowers are the mildest, with a delicate texture and slight pepperiness, while the leaves…

what’s trending?

Products using food waste As issues surrounding food waste become more apparent, we’re seeing more food and drink products being made from food that would normally go to waste, including Waste Not juices (on sale in Tesco) made from wonky fruit and veg (see page 17 for more). Apple cider vinegar Waitrose recently reported that its sales of apple cider vinegar are up by 60% and we’ve noticed it crop up in more products – you’ll find it in dressings, snacks and new fermented soft drinks. Pink drinks From rosé wine to rhubarb, strawberry and raspberry flavoured gins, pink drinks are seriously in right now. Turn to page 36 for Victoria Moore’s favourite rosés. Seaweed Seaweed has been trending for years now, thanks in part to the rise in popularity of Japanese cuisine, but this summer we’ve…

1 The infamous meeting place of John Profumo and Christine Keeler, Cliveden is now more well-known for its seasonal, British cooking and afternoon teas, as it was for the ensuing Sixties scandal. Meghan Markle stayed here the night before this year’s royal wedding. 2 While Restaurant André Garrett is Cliveden’s formal restaurant, it’s not at all starchy. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The menu focuses on impeccably sourced British ingredients with luxurious touches such as oysters, truffle and caviar. 3 Must-try dishes are Lincolnshire Poacher soufflé; rose veal and peanut butter parfait. Bread plays a starring role, too, served with truffle cream cheese. 4 Next to the main house, Astor Grill serves brunch at weekends. Housed in the old stable block, there’s an equine theme, and booths are slotted neatly where the horses…
