Roast pork belly with lemon and szechuan pepper.
Roast pork belly with lemon and szechuan pepper.

Fresh and easy meals are a highlight this week. Try Frank Camorra's simple pizza with zucchini, green olives, mint and fetta. Or the super-fast beef and bok choy stir-fry. It's a great mid-week favourite.

As new season ingredients make their way to our markets and grocers, think about preserving them for later on – such as pickled cherries, recipe below.

And on the weekend, try marinating pork belly in garlic, ginger, soy and rice wine before cooking. Then top with ground Szechuan peppercorns for added zing.
