Neil Perry's pan-fried gnocchi with roast tomato and basil sauce and crispy pancetta.
Neil Perry's pan-fried gnocchi with roast tomato and basil sauce and crispy pancetta.

Get out the grill this week and whip up easy dinners such as our eggplant with miso or juicy grilled lamb cutlets. 

On the weekend, it’s all about grazing: caponata with crusty bread, a buffalo mozzarella and herb salad or maybe soft gnocchi with a basil and tomato sauce.

We don’t forget the sweet tooth either. Fruit compote with ice-cream, watermelon breakfast trifle, a heat-beating lemon granita or a cake piled high with seasonal fruit.
