Risotto VerdeServes 6 as a starter or 4 as a main course

Risotto Verde

Asparagus should be enjoyed as often as possible during its short season and this is one of the finest ways of doing so: a risotto made from asparagus, broad beans, spring onions and chives – a real taste of early summer.

 
 
Gratin of Rigatoni with Roasted VegetablesServes 4

Gratin of Rigatoni with Roasted Vegetables

For strict vegetarians, exclude the anchovies.

 
 
Quick Stir-fried Spiced Red Cabbage with ApplesServes 2

Quick Stir-fried Spiced Red Cabbage with Apples

Red cabbage is wonderfully versatile – you can cook it long and slow and it seems to go on improving, or in the recipe below the opposite: fast cooking to retain some crunchiness and bite. Either way the apples and spices are essential.

 
 
Pasta with Tomato and MozzarellaServes 2-3

Pasta with Tomato and Mozzarella

Once you have made your fresh tomato sauce – a stage that can be done a day or two ahead – then this is a delightfully easy dish to make for lunch or supper.

 
 
Oven-baked Wild Mushroom RisottoServes 6 as a starter

Oven-baked Wild Mushroom Risotto

Like souffles, risottos won't wait, so serve immediately on warmed plates

 
 
Fresh Asparagus with Foaming HollandaiseServes 4 as a starter

Fresh Asparagus with Foaming Hollandaise

FrijolemoleServes 4-6

Frijolemole

This Mexican recipe is rather like hummus, but with added zing from limes and chillies. Serve it with flatbreads or salad as a dip, starter or light lunch.

 
 
Fried Halloumi Cheese with Lime and Caper VinaigretteServes 2 as a light lunch, or 4 as a starter

Fried Halloumi Cheese with Lime and Caper Vinaigrette

Ideally, this quick and easy storecupboard recipe should be enjoyed outside on a warm day: failing that, it will evoke memories of summer with every bite!

 
 
Four Star SlawServes 10

Four Star Slaw

The four 'stars' in this case are celeriac, carrot, cabbage and spring onion. The result is a very crunchy fresh-tasting coleslaw that can be made the day before, if you cover it with clingfilm and keep it in the refrigerator until needed.

 
 
Fresh Apricot PreserveMakes 3-4 lb (1.35-1.8 kg)

Fresh Apricot Preserve

This is my mother's recipe, and every year she waits patiently for the price of apricots to come down – which usually happens in August, especially at the end of a warm summer day when whole boxes are sold off at the markets by stallholders
