At a recent BBQ we hosted, a friend brought loads of figs and rosemary from her backyard. We used the rosemary sprigs as kebab sticks and threaded the whole fresh figs onto them. We put them on the BBQ until they were warm and just slightly charred. When we took them off and cut them in half, they were juicy and the rosemary had infused the fruit. You can slice them in half and drizzle them with olive oil and (Maldon) salt, or serve them alongside any entree. Delish!

It seems there is a trend for families owning chickens, backed by stars like Jamie Oliver who promote healthy, local eating.

Perfect Summer Rolls, you say? The article is good, with some useful tips, but I would also add: nix all meat and opt for lightly fried tofu, shred the carrot and mix with salt, let the water drain for 10 minutes, add mango, thai basil + coriander + mint is the perfect herb combo, and ALWAYS serve with spicy peanut sauce.
