Raspberry and champagne jelly with spiced compote

Raspberry champage jelly.

This is a great summer-time dessert; use any fruit in the compote - just skin and dice it if it's stone fruit. The compote can also be served with panna cotta or ice-cream, rather the jelly.

Smoked ocean trout with quinoa and tomato salad

Smoked ocean trout with tomato salad

I'm a great fan of quinoa. It's perfect as the base of a roasted or grilled vegetable salad. This dish is great served as one of many for a long, relaxed meal, or alone as a light lunch.

Barbecued or grilled, lamb cutlets are fantastic with a classic mint sauce and lots of seasonal greens. At this time of year, nothing is better than peas and asparagus with fresh mint.

Lemongrass parfait with pineapple salsa

Parfait.

Begin this parfait recipe the day before - or even better - two days before serving to create a beautiful summer-time sweet. Stone-fruit and berries can be used instead of pineapple.
