welcome to february

The Sunshine Issue – that’s what we’ve dubbed this edition of delicious. When we did the planning, a bit before Christmas, we mulled over what we all feel in February and there was a consensus: a longing for sunshine and freshness, coupled with a desire for food that makes you feel nurtured. So that’s what we’ve tried to capture on every page – through the fresh flavours of citrus fruit (at its zingy best in winter), through hearty food with a lighter edge, through crowd-pleasing dishes to dive in and share: sticky ribs, satay and meatballs, cheesecake, giant yorkshire puddings… (all with a delicious. twist, naturally). There are thought-provoking features, too. Are you on Instagram? If not, it’s worth checking out. It’s the social media platform I like best as…

5 quick things to make with… grapefruit

The 5-minute recipe 1 Brûléed grapefruit breakfast SERVES 2. HANDS-ON TIME 15 MIN Heat the grill to high. Halve a grapefruit and run a sharp knife between the segments to loosen them. Sprinkle a layer of dark muscovado sugar over the top and put on a foil-lined baking tray. Grill for 3-4 minutes until the sugar caramelises and the grapefruit warms a little. Serve with a dollop of greek yogurt and a scattering of fresh mint leaves. Spoon over any sugary liquid from the tray and eat straightaway. 2 Grapefruit martini Squeeze half a grapefruit into a cocktail shaker with ice, a sprig each of fresh mint and fresh rosemary, 1 tbsp dry vermouth and 50ml gin (we like Portobello Road gin with grapefruit). Add ½ tbsp sugar syrup, shake and strain into a chilled…

february five good things to do

1 Eat and drink… …your fill on a Sunday at Ember Yard restaurant in London’s Soho, which has recently thrown its hat into the brunch ring. Head along to enjoy a Free Flowing Sunday Feast where, for £35pp, you’ll get four courses along with bottomless wine and prosecco over 2½ hours. The setting is just right for a good value brunch – laid-back and relaxed, and if you time it right, there’ll be no need to eat before or after… 2 Feed… …mind and soul by reading A Really Big Lunch (£17.99; Grove Press) – musings on food, wine and life in general by the late Jim Harrison. He’s one of the USA’s best-loved writers (he wrote Legends of the Fall) and was once described as ‘the poet laureate of appetite’. His…

SUBJECT: Kitchens great and small FROM : Felicity Carn I have to agree with Kathy Slack [Dec 2017, p170] that a kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. This year we spent Christmas in Spain, in our caravan with just a small cooker in the corner. Most people nearby went to a local restaurant for their Christmas meal, but my husband loves his turkey, so we cooked our usual festive (albeit scaled down) lunch. I enjoy eating out, but I’d hate to see the kitchen go. I hope there are many like me who will keep on cooking – whatever the size of their kitchen. SUBJECT: Happy New Year indeed FROM : Carole Smith Boy, does January’s delicious. magazine live up to the title. Never have there been so many things…

1852 The first public lavatory opened in London on 2 February. Space has since become such a premium in the capital that they’re now being turned into restaurants and bars, such as WC (Clapham) and The Attendant (Fitzrovia). 1937 Richard McDonald was born on 6 February. Aged 28, he set up a hot dog stand with Maurice, his brother – and 47 years later he ceremonially grilled McDonald’s 50 billionth burger. 1977 A record-breaking lobster was caught off Nova Scotia, Canada, on 11 February. It weighed over 20kg – as much as an average five-year-old child. 2012 Australian chef Brad Jolly set the world record for the most tosses of a pancake in one minute on 21 February – 140 flips in 60 seconds.…
