Barbecued Sardines with Summer Herb SauceServes 4

Barbecued Sardines with Summer Herb Sauce

One of the best things about summer has to be barbecuing - and sardines lend themselves to this method of cooking. Finish them off with a luscious herby sauce for a true taste of the Mediterranean.

 
 
Pitta BreadMakes 12

Pitta Bread

Home-made pitta bread is a million times better than the often doughy tasteless versions on offer in shops, and they're not at all difficult to make.

 
 
Quick Brown RollsMakes 12 rolls

Quick Brown Rolls

This recipe requires 5-6 minutes kneading and only one rise, so it is relatively quick.

 
 
Tunisian Aubergine Salad with Coriander and YoghurtServes 4 as a starter

Tunisian Aubergine Salad with Coriander and Yoghurt

This is my adaptation of an Elizabeth David recipe. I never actually made it from her book, but one of my favourite restaurants, Chez Bruce, in Wandsworth, London, regularly serves it as a first course.

 
 
Courgette and Potato Cakes with Mint and Feta CheeseServes 12 (makes 16 cakes – one per person, plus a few extra)

Courgette and Potato Cakes with Mint and Feta Cheese

Courgettes, mint and feta are three ingredients that have a summery feel. Add potatoes to make little cakes and you have a treat for veggies and meat eaters alike - a great recipe for a summer buffet.

 
 
Lamb Kebabs with Lemon and RosemaryServes 4

Lamb Kebabs with Lemon and Rosemary

Lovely lamb kebabs are reminiscent of the sort of food cooked all over the Mediterranean so if the sun's shining, dust off that barbecue and get cooking!

 
 
Pickled Peppers and CourgettesMakes four 171/2 fl oz (500 ml capacity) preserving jars

Pickled Peppers and Courgettes

This is adapted from an old Cordon Bleu recipe for pickled cucumber. It's one of the best, in my opinion, for serving with patés, as it provides a bit of crunch and acidity to cut through the richness.

 
 
Middle Eastern Tabbouleh SaladServes 6-8 as a side salad

Middle Eastern Tabbouleh Salad

This Middle Eastern salad is so pretty and summery, and if you have mint in the garden that is growing as wild as a jungle – as mine does – it's a wonderful way to use some of it!

 
 
Shami KebabsServes 3–4, or 6 as a starter

Shami Kebabs

Lovely spicy lamb kebabs with lentils - actually patties - that make great eating as part of an Indian meal, barbecue or even Middle Eastern-style buffet.

 
 
Chickpea, Chilli and Coriander SoupServes 6

Chickpea, Chilli and Coriander Soup

This has decidedly Mexican overtones. It isn't too hot and spicy but the presence of the chilli does give it a nice kick, and the flavour and texture of chickpeas is perfect for soup.
