Weekly Love: Week 153

I think it is safe to say that we have now hit barbecue season in earnest. For the first of my Southern California inspired ‘Sunshine Suppers’ over at Borough Market this Summer, I’ve put together an easy recipe for Barbecue Corn on the Cob with Miso, Coriander and Lime Butter that is great to throw together for the start of a grilled feast. Also, to make life easier for you I’ve gone through and added a ‘Barbecue‘ tag to all of my barbecue recipes in the archives, so you can find them all in one place by clicking here. Happy Grilling!

1. Catching up with old school friends back for the Summer festivities. I had some questions about what I was wearing on Instagram: I’m afraid my dress is an old one I picked up from Ted Baker for a garden party a couple of Summers ago, and my Jaeger wedges date back to when I was actually at school! Though, while my navy Whistles jersey blazer was a sale purchase, they now do a double buttoned version in several different colours which you can find here. | 2. Byron Burger has now opened in Canterbury! I had an absolutely delicious Summer special with a can of their house lager for lunch on opening day, which also doubled as my first experience of the Byron Burger club – full blog post to follow! | 3. Toasting Fathers Day with a bottle of Bouvet Saphir Brut from the Loire Valley the guys at Lay and Wheeler were kind enough to pop over to me. | 4. More goodies to get me through the week, Strawberry Dusted Truffles the team at Charbonnel et Walker sent over to me along with the ingredients for an upcoming recipe post – stay tuned! | 5. Escaping from the heat by reading Waitrose Kitchen in the swimming pool. | 6. Fragrant peaches and apricots for sale by the roadside.

7. The sun going down over Canterbury Cathedral Cloisters. | 8. Throwing together a last minute Eton Mess for dessert in some tall ice cream glasses (I have these ones) with local Kent strawberries, cream leftover from making strawberry ice cream and some leftover homemade meringue. | 9. The beautiful golden sunrise at 5am on Ballaugh Shore, Isle of Man. | 10. Fresh juices at Chegworth Valley at Borough Market. | 11. Lemon butter poached fish at The Griffin’s Head in Chillenden. | 12. A fantastic tip for veggies on the barbecue, baby peppers are fantastic griddled whole, just brushed with a little olive oil.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m just spending a quiet one at home with my family, cooking up a few recipes from some books I’ve recently acquired and for some upcoming columns, project and features, and making the most of all the beautiful sunshine!
