Uncork the rose, hang up the Cezannes, put on the Piaf and declare that, for this evening, your Provencal bistro is open. I like this main dish served with either soft polenta or potato puree.

The flavours in this salad are so vibrant they'll disarm anyone! It works beautifully with just about any seafood; use tinned tuna if you want to make it really simple but be sure it is a brand that...

Traditionally, Italians never serve seafood pastas with parmesan cheese, but I love the subtle saltiness it adds to this dish. If you prefer, use cubes of seared fresh tuna instead of prawns - magic.

This dish make the perfect side to a salmon main as the slight bitterness with the whole buttery lemon thing going on is perfect with the rich oiliness of the fish.

Flavoured breadcrumb crusts are a really nice way to add texture and flavour to fish, as well as to keep it moist.

Slow and steady wins for taste, texture and aroma and these slow-braised beef cheeks are deliciously rich.

This whole-roasted cauliflower certainly has "wow" factor. For the faint-hearted though, it can be broken up, boiled and the dressing poured over. Also, try the dressing poured over broccoli or beans.

This soup has real Mexican kick thanks to the ancho chillies. Along with the soup as a starter, a great Mexican-themed lunch would be fish or chicken with adobe served with avocado, shredded cabbage...

Ancho chillies spice up this blue-eye dish while a dash of citrus adds further punch to the Mexican flavours.

A warm Tuscan summer might seem a long way away, but you can drum up a little Italian getaway around dinnertime. This dish is fabulous served with mashed potato or even a potato salad.

Serve Italian crostata for a dainty morning tea, or dress these treats up for a fitting end to a dinner party by adding cream or ice-cream. For the crostata, apple is a good substitute for pear.

Some spices work harder than others, sharing their charms across main course and dessert. Here, ginger takes the cake.

You can use any part of the chicken - breast, thigh or drumstick, but I think the thighs have the best flavour. For best results, marinate overnight before cooking.

Roast lamb racks are great and this one is so easy - once your butcher has boned it, all the tough work is done. The stuffing makes it super tasty and it's easy to carve with no bone.

This dish make a great side for a big lamb roast. With the peas, to be honest, it's easier to use frozen baby peas and they will usually be sweeter.

Sweet and smoky paprika gives a spicy kick to a one-pan wonder. Grill some sourdough, rub with garlic and drizzle with olive oil for the perfect accompaniment to the mussel sauce.

This warm salad traces its pedigree to the Middle East. As well as labna - a thick, cheese-like yoghurt - soft cheeses such as ricotta work well in the salad.

This simple and crunchy salad, utilising autumn / winter produce, makes a great side for savoury tarts and pies.
Cook | Neil Perry | Mon Jun 15 09:12:14 EST 2015
Savoury tarts are the ulitmate meal solution; simple, tasty crowd-pleasers that can be served up at any time of day.

Take off your coat, put on the oven and prepare to warm yourself from the inside out with this full-bodied stew.
