welcome to april

Frozen shallots, chopped dill and petit pois are always in my shopping basket, three freezer favourites that all taste as good as their fresh alternatives and which eliminate the risk of rogue herbs and veg sadly rotting in the salad drawer. (How does anyone ever use up a whole bunch of dill?) Freezer food is cool again, says food writer Sue Quinn, adding that, it’s ‘now the fastest growing food and drink category in the UK’. See her tips for what to buy and how to store it on page 132. It’s essential reading if you’re stocking up in advance of friends and family visiting for Easter. You can also freeze our cover star cake up to step two, making it easy to create a showstopping centrepiece (see p30). Wishing you…

This month’s food news, trends, our best buys for Easter, Angellica Bell’s berry muffins and what’s on the BBC this month Japanese and Italian cuisine may not seem like obvious bedfellows, but the ingredients from both cuisines have a natural affinity with each other, especially around key umami flavours, simplicity of serving style and a love of seasonality. Stefano and Naoko Vallebona source both artisan Italian and Japanese ingredients that complement each other for their eponymous shop in Wimbledon (vallebona.co.uk), Sumosan Twiga in Knightsbridge serves Japanese and Italian dishes alongside each other (sumosantwigalondon.com) and new kid on the block Angelina in Dalston (angelina.london) has married the two cuisines in a series of small plates. Chefs Joshua Owens-Baigler (also the owner) and Daniele Ceforo create recipes such as unagi risotto with burnt…

have you tried zhoug?

What is it? Zhoug, also spelled zhug, is a vibrant, herby spice paste from Yemen, made with plenty of coriander, parsley, garlic, green chilli and spices, predominantly cumin and often cloves. It’s hugely popular in Israel, where it’s one of the most popular condiments used in street food. What does it taste like? Think of it a little like a zingy, spicy Middle Eastern pesto. It has the same consistency of harissa paste or pesto, but with fresh herby flavours and a chilli kick. How can I use it? It’s amazingly versatile. Spread it in a sandwich, burger or kebab; swirl through yogurt to make a sauce for drizzling over falafel; mix with olive oil and wine vinegar to create a punchy salad dressing, or dot over shakshuka. Where can I get it? You’ll find Belazu zhoug…

Flavoured hot cross buns Every Easter the range of non-traditional hot cross buns in supermarkets gets bigger and better. Great news for dried fruit haters, you can now find buns in flavours like rhubarb & custard and chocolate & ginger. See page 14 for our favourite this year. Stout After years of falling sales, Tesco recently announced that the demand for stout has increased by 13% in the past year (almost twice the growth of lager). And it’s not just Guinness – the craft beer market has led to a range of new stouts on the market. Ruby chocolate Easter eggs One of last year’s top trends, ruby chocolate is a naturally pink chocolate made using ruby beans, which tastes a bit like white chocolate with berry notes. This year, Prestat, Chococo, Morrisons and Aldi…
