Chicken Provenҫal with olives & artichokes

Recommended by Peter Bigg, Director at Country Image of Dorset

The perfect chicken recipe for a family feast, this hearty casserole packs a punch with a fragrant selection of herbs, tomatoes, olives and artichokes that evokes summer in Provence.

Carrot Cake

Recommended by Gary Parnham, Chief Designer at Designed Interiors of Canterbury

This very yummy scrummy carrot cake is a classic bake that will always go down a treat. It is simple to do with a one-layer sponge and a drizzle of icing to top it off. Just make sure you stock up on those key essential ingredients of carrots and oranges and dig out the cinnamon for a spicy zest tang to complete the taste. And if you can’t eat it all, this cake can be frozen for later (just add the icing after).

Sardine Bolognese

Recommended by Sally Johnston, Senior Designer at Dobsons Home

For a healthy meal rich in Omega-3, as well as Vitamin D and Protein, omit the usual minced beef in Bolognese in favour of sardines. This recipe has only five steps and can be rustled up in under an hour, including prep time! To finish, sprinkle with a generous amount of grated parmesan for a delightful Mediterranean dish.

Mango soufflé with vanilla ice cream

Recommended by Paul O’Brien, Business Development Director at Kitchens International

If you fancy something that will really put your culinary skills to the test then this light mango soufflé could be just for you. While soufflés have a reputation for being tricky to master, this one is deceptively easy – just don’t open the oven door! Make the base first, then the soufflé and leave in the oven for just seven minutes for a fluffy, fruity dessert perfect for those warmer days. Serve with vanilla ice cream on the side.
