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?
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.
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.
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.
