Bruschetta with nduja and ricotta

Slow-braised beef cheeks

Not the rump cheeks, silly, but the facial cheeks of beef. Because they are working muscles, their connective tissue helps them to hold their shape after slow cooking, even when meltingly tender.

Prawn gumbo

Good Food. Hot Food. July 2 Prawn and Okra gumbo.July 9 Duckfat potatoesPhoto: Edwina Pickles. 25th June 2013.

My version has a lighter-than-normal roux as its base, so the end result is more soup than gloop. Serve with steamed rice and Tabasco sauce.

Hot food: Gumbo

A combination of West African, French, Spanish, German and native Choctaw influences, gumbo is a real melting pot in action.

Roasted bone marrow

One of the great pleasures of the cooler months. Quinces are brilliant added to the morning porridge or served with an after-dinner cheese platter.
