As I write this, hopeful about the summer ahead, it’s the greyest, windiest and most miserable day! I have high hopes that we’ll have at least some sunny days, because we’ve packed this issue with loads of recipes that are perfect for alfresco dining. We don’t want to be crammed under a parasol waiting for a shower to pass before we can enjoy a plant-based feast! BBQs are amongst my very favourite ways to spend a sunny day; either in my garden or someone else’s (though if it’s not mine I can relax with a drink!), enjoying delicious food and the company of people I love. We’re sharing 13 amazing recipes with you this month that should inspire you to dust off that BBQ and get grilling, and it’s not all…

tell me more about… saffron

Originating from a flower called crocus sativus, saffron is one of the most precious spices in the world, holding the title of the costliest spice by weight. The reason for this is that harvesting saffron is labour-intensive, and its yield is low.
