Warmer days and nights lend themselves to fresh and simple cooking. So forget the slow-braises and heavy carbs for now and focus on lightly steamed and baked dishes flavoured with herbs and spices like our blue eye with curry leaf or Asian chicken parcels. Any leftover chicken can be used in fresh rice paper rolls for tomorrow's lunch.
Spring's harvest invites you to make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables - why not try Karen Martini's minestrone followed by a homemade strawberry yoghurt for dessert.
And make a loaf of fruit bread on the weekend and you'll be right for toast all week.
