Hi and welcome to my foodie world. This weekend I am planning a picnic with the kids, which will involve travelling to the south coast and stopping if we get hungry. I will take my little portable barbecue and hob, one small pan and a cool box to keep the meat chilled and of course some veg.

I do prepare some of it in advance, so I’ll part boil some short pasta and marinate some chicken in rosemary and lemon sea salt and maybe take some lamb chops soaked in oil and sun dried tomatoes.

Buongiorno friends, it’s the weekend again and it’s beautiful. I really love England in the summer as it gives us all the chance to spend more time cooking outdoors.

Ever since Etna Ovens built me a wood-burning oven, I haven’t stopped using it – for baking bread, pizza, focaccia, even my Sunday roast!

This week’s book by the winner of the third series of Bake Off, John Whaite, focuses more on cooking rather than traditional baking. It is called Perfect Plates In 5 Ingredients and it really is what is says on the tin: simple plates of food cooked in no time, with very little fuss.
