“IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER AT WARMING YOURHEART THAN MASH?” Every year, Gemma two doors down, Georgia across the road, and I do a big extended family dinner together. Although we eat together in our street a lot – Friday-evening drinks often turn into pizza and movie nights, and more than one kid’s party has ended up going late into the evening with lots of food foraging along the way – this particular dinner is plotted and planned. Grandparents, aunts and uncles are all invited. We even bring out the cloth serviettes. Gemma and I do most of the cooking as Georgia hosts, and this year I decided to get ahead.

“IT LOOKED JUST LIKE THE PICTURE!” Picture perfect What a surprise to find my eleven-year-old son had left me a message in my recently purchased May issue of Super Food Ideas. The requested Easy No-stir Mac and Cheese (p61) was a particular hit and looked just like the picture! I also made the Mustard Pork with Garlic Butter Vegetables (p30) as we all love the idea of a one-pan dinner (especially with three boys who don’t relish washing up).

“Unfortunately everyone seems to be completely baffled by celeriac, but it’s beautiful in soups or thinly sliced into salads. When roasted it goes sweet, and when mixed with potato and mashed, it’s a complete joy.” JAMIE OLIVER, CHEF AND LOOK OUT FOR Grapefruit | Jerusalem artichokes | Kohlrabi | Pomelo | Swede | Witlof Celeriac While it’s not going to win any beauty contests at the greengrocer, celeriac is wonderfully versatile and can be eaten raw, roasted, pickled, mashed or boiled. Its flavour is best described as a mix of parsley and celery, and it gets cooked much the same way as potato. TO STORE: Remove and discard stalks and store in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to 7 days. PERFECT PARTNERS: Fish, beef, garlic, thyme, mayonnaise, lemon, walnuts, cream, parmesan. QUICK IDEA:…
