The BBQ has had its official sunny day outing, there’s been a little trip down the country and I’ve cracked out the shorts, yes, I’m calling it, it’s officially summer! It really is my favourite time of the year to cook, there’s something about the possibility of eating outdoors that always inspires my dishes this time of year. This weekend it’s all about recipes that provide a taste of summer. Fresh flavours, simple methods and ideal easy summer eats.

Like these individual Tomato, Ricotta and Thyme galettes which are worth the effort of making the pastry yourself. The recipe is from my good friend and food dreamer Jeni Glasgow and is easily one the most reliable pastries you will make — it can be made both savoury and sweet. This recipe can be made as individual rustic tartlets or as a large tart. Serve it with salad leaves mixed with soft herbs such as chives, basil and chervil and lots of beautiful edible flowers. It’s particularly beautiful in the late summer when Irish tomatoes are at their best.
