Saturday lunch ... Neil Perry's porcini crusted beef fillet.

Get out the spice jars and curry pastes this week and whip up a salmon and miso noodle soup and simple stir-fry of spicy greens. An ice-cold beer is the perfect accompaniment.

We've also got some easy Mediterranean flavours – a simple pasta salad, grilled lamb cutlets with feta, and a great quinoa and berry breakfast suggestion. If you're planning a feast for friends and family the Saturday lunch ideas – beef followed by chocolate bread pudding – will inspire plenty of oohs and aahs at the table.

Spicy greens with chilli, garlic and soy rice

MONDAY: Stir-fried leafy greens is a great way to start the week
