welcome to august

Every dish tells a story, and Robert Ortiz’s beef estofado is a fascinating one. The Birmingham-based chef, who came to the UK from Peru, explains how his grandmother’s slow-cooked comforting stews, flavoured with fragrant herbs, influenced his own recipe. ‘My family worked in the fields, picking coffee, cane sugar, papaya and avocados, and in the early morning, my grandmother and I would take massive bowls of soup to them.’ Find his recipe on page 136. This issue, we’ve explored more recipes that put us in mind of sunny holidays, from Greece’s fluffy pitta and tzatziki to Spain’s smoked paprika-spiked salpicón de marisco, Mediterranean spatchcocked chicken, and Jamaica’s ackee & saltfish. We hope you enjoy making and sharing them all this summer. See you next issue, out 26 August. @bbcgoodfood New! HEALTH PODCAST In episode 4 of…

This one from Gill Richards in Herefordshire caught my attention The article on the Sikh charity, Nishkam Swat, was inspiring (June).

3 things you’ve been sharing

It’s great to log on to the Good Food Facebook Community and find out what you’ve been discussing – and what I can learn. Here are some of my highlights. The beauty of summer Thy Lundkvist from Stockholm in Sweden shared her family’s very special lunch to celebrate Sweden’s midsummer, consisting of ‘devilled eggs with dill & caviar, senapssill (mustard herring), västerbottenpaj (cheese pie) and white chocolate almond cake with summer berries and wood sorrel for fika (which is like Swedish coffee/teatime).’ They took this picture from her summer home in the Stockholm archipelago leading out to the Baltic Sea. What a wonderful setting to bid farewell to the dark Scandinavian winters. Keeping it chill I found a hack by Keeley Martin from Kent to help keep drinks cold – she made this ice…

grapefruit drizzle cake

Baking takes me back to being young; helping mum in the kitchen making jam tarts, sponge cakes. My love of baking comes from her, and she’s my biggest inspiration. Having a chronic illness means I’m limited in what I can do, but I still love to bake. I’m often flicking through old and new recipe books, planning my next bake. Blood oranges are one of my favourite fruits, but when they’re not in season, I use grapefruit. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into one of my bakes, and a variation on a drizzle cake was the perfect way to allow its zingy flavour to shine.
