Easy summery menu for 4


An easy mozzarella and avocado starter, chicken with lemon sauce revisited and a quick nougatine ice cream. What could be better as a menu for 4 on a sunny day?




Marinated Mozzarella with Avocado

This is very pretty and very summery, but it is dependent on getting hold of good-quality mozzarella. Buffalo mozzarella is the best, but failing that the full-fat cheese made from cow's milk has a lovely creamy texture. 


Main course


Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Chicken with lemon sauce was in every recipe book in the Seventies but then seemed to lose its popularity. But we have revisited my old recipe and I have to say it still tastes extremely good.




Quick Nougatine Ice Cream

If you hunt through the sweets section at a large supermarket, you will find a very hard, crisp almond confection called torrone from Italy or turrón from Spain. There is a softer, chewy version, but for ice cream the crisp crunchy one is best. Crushed into ice cream, the result is superb.
