welcome to june

I love my phone. I find and follow recipes on it, use it to book restaurants and to discover and buy wine. A recent weekend away was spent at a tiny country pub I’d seen on Instagram. Food news and trends arrive via WhatsApp and Twitter every morning. I’m devoted to the app that monitors the exercise I do, the nutritional content of my breakfast, lunch and dinner, and also nudges me to drink enough water. The last takeaway I had arrived just 20 minutes after I’d ordered and paid for it through an app. My phone has opened my eyes to new ingredients and experiences, and my food life is all the richer for it. Columnist Joanna Blythman, on the other hand, says ‘Tech is destroying the joy of food’ (p105).…

INTRODUCING Miso caramel If you love salted caramel as much as we do, let us introduce you to our latest obsession, miso caramel. Bolder and sassier than its older sister, when added to caramel, a spoonful of the fermented soybean paste provides the ultimate salty-sweet hit that we just can’t get enough of. Why it’s on-trend Quite simply, miso – a traditional Japanese ingredient – has become more readily available. As the world food aisles in our supermarkets broaden, so too does our culinary curiosity. Miso’s deeply savoury umami taste (comparable to the satisfaction you get from eating things like parmesan and Marmite) adds depth of flavour to dishes. Where to find it Newcastle’s The Patricia (the-patricia.com, read our review on p17) serves dark chocolate ganache in a pool of miso caramel sauce, while The Modern…

love lamb? try alpaca

It’s barbecue time again, hurrah! But as well as the usual lamb and pork, have you considered putting alpaca sausages and burgers over your hot coals? Alpaca meat is both delicious and lean, similar in taste to venison. And it’s increasingly easy to buy. One company rearing alpacas for meat (as well as wool) is Moor View on Cornwall’s Bodmin Moor. Six years ago, gym manager Emma Collison and theatre technician Stuart Billinghurst decided they’d had enough of living on a Plymouth housing estate and met a couple who wanted to sell their 16 alpacas. They bought them and started raising them on a 10-acre farm plot near Liskeard. The animals are slaughtered and turned into sausages and burgers by a local butcher, and sold at fairs and shows across the country.…

GREAT BRITISH MENU Gone are the days when a Lancashire hotpot or custard tart would get you on the Great British Menu banquet menu – now it’s a battle of foams, crumbs, gels and spherification. The Taste of Summer brief may be simple, but the dishes are far from it. Wimbledon royalty Sue Barker (above), and Tim Henman, former No 1 British tennis champion Annabel Croft, and Paralympic wheelchair tennis gold medalist Gordon Reid join the judging panel for finals week, which ends with a grand banquet at Wimbledon on Friday 30 June on BBC Two to mark the start of the 140th championship.
