IF EVER WE needed a spring reset, it’s now. This is the time of year we usually emerge from our winter cocoon, looking forward to a new season’s bounty and lighter eating. And while we’re not sure when we’ll be able to fully emerge – and entertain – at delicious., when life gives you lemons, we make spiked lemonade punch! If, like me, you’ve spent a lot of time at home, it’s likely you feel in a bit of a recipe rut. Consider this issue your guide to making dinnertime a happy place! This month, it’s all about a recipe revamp – the fast and the fresh, leaning towards Mediterranean influences as the ideal approach to eating at this time of year. It felt like the universe conspired to help us. Peter…

We are (slowly!) making our way through Georgie Esdaile’s ‘Winter Harvest’ (August issue). The maple-roasted pears with nut crumble was an easy one to involve Little Miss and will be a family favourite for quite a while! Thank you for the…

The spicy lamb dish calls for an approachable red with plump fruit, like our Pinot Shiraz. Finally, our brandy fortified Tempranillo, paired with the brownie, would make an indulgent dessert.”Martin Siebert, Tokar Estate Winemaker PREP AHEAD Scrumptious garlic bread p 102 Braised beef cheeks & greens pot pie p 114 Lemon tart p 63 “We’re all short on time, so get ahead when you can.

GLOBE ARTICHOKE My mum taught me how to prepare artichokes when I was in my early teens. It excites me that they coincide with the season of broad beans, peas and dill to make a killer braise. Another way I love to use them is in a spring moussaka – I replace the eggplant with slices of artichoke hearts that give the moussaka a lighter, almost nuttier flavour. RHUBARB This isn’t traditionally used in Greek cuisine, but I love it. It transforms into an amazing jam or compote. In peak season, I use it in a baklava. I poach the rhubarb with honey, lemon and lime juice, then layer it between sheets of filo with ground almonds, cinnamon and lime zest. When baked, I soak the baklava with the reserved rhubarb syrup.
