The vegetable patch or allotment is burgeoning now: beans of all types, peas, courgettes and tomatoes will be ripening and the early summer berries will have been joined by peaches, apricots and imported melons.
Whether you're a novice cook or seasoned expert, July is a good month to get into the kitchen and cook with lovely fresh ingredients. If you're unsure of any techniques, visit the How to Cook area of the site where Delia covers everything from how to dress a crab to how to prepare exotic fruit.
