With the recent spate of hot weather we've had, Elderflowers seem to be out early this year. With their delicate flavour - and short season - these fritters are a treat to savour.
Lemon meringue pie
My family’s culinary icon – there's nothing quite like seeing those sugary peaks fresh from the oven.
My mum and her mum (who lived with us), were formidable in the kitchen. It was like living with a Julia Childs double act.
Night after night, ox tail soup; prawn cocktail, queen of puddings, would miraculously appear. Sometimes I longed for a takeaway or TV dinners just to break the dinner table formality. But after a cooking marathon like that, day in, day out, who can blame them for insisting we sit down to eat?
And the puddings! This lemony surprise was always a winner. It separates into a spongy top with a hot lemony curd underneath.
This is one of those recipes that's been handed down through the generations. I remember my nanna cooking these, while I watched from the floor. And now, my 8 year old daughter makes them on her own.
Hey, I'm a New Zealander - we're a little possessive about our Pavlova! This one is based on one from our answer to Delia - the Edmonds "Sure to Rise" cookery book and makes a very traditional looking pav.
Basically an upside down open apple pie. Delicious!
My friend Gudren has become famous for her Tiramisu - so I've stolen her recipe. Her trick is not to over soak the sponge so that everything becomes gloopy.
