Savoury summer recipe testing (in February!)

It’s a warm weekend in February, which is making me think that Spring is in the air! I always look forward to the summer, and all the time for picnics, BBQs and plenty of eating ‘al fresco’.

I’m sure that the Beast from the East will return soon to remind me summer is still a little way off though…

Anyway, I’ve been doing some recipe testing to get in the summer mood. So much of my favourite food is vegetarian, from light frittatas to lovely mixed salads. Let me add to your buffet with sandwiches, wraps, or some delicious savoury pastries – samosas or spanokopita (Greek spinach and cheese pie!), anyone?

I’m also completely in love with Ottolenghi’s cauliflower cake. I’ve found that the recipe does not need as many eggs as he uses, and I can make a gluten free version using coconut flour.

Give me a call, or send me an email or facebook message to talk about your party planning!

Welford Cricket Simply Delish SponsorsThis season I’m a sponsor of Welford Park Cricket Club (spot me in the programme!).

Watching cricket, perched outside a country pub or lazing on a picnic blanket with cucumber sandwiches and afternoon tea cakes, is the stuff of perfect summer days.

I’m happy to put together sweet or savoury picnic treats for your summer outings, just let me know how many people you hope to feed and your budget, and I can draw you up a menu. Give me a ring or message me via Simply Delish on Facebook.


Here’s to a sunny summer!
