Truffleicious Food – July

Food, recipes, ice cream, sherbet, gelato

Hi Guys. Well, July has certainly been a been a stonker of a month & food looms heavily in my thoughts. We are basking in the middle of a fabulous heat wave, temperatures are reaching 30c here in the UK. As you all know, us Brits are always on about the weather, it’s either too hot, or cold, too wet or too dry. Myself, I love it. Let it last forever I say, as it’s the kind of weather that inspires me to rustle up some healthy, refreshing salads & interesting dressings. As for desserts, what could be nicer than a huge bowl of fresh, seasonal fruits, strawberries, raspberries, peaches & a delicious homemade sherbet or ice-cream.

This month I am going to share with you some of my own recipes, These are recipes which I have developed over the many years I have spent in hot kitchens. All of the dishes in the recipes below, can be purchased, freshly, homemade, from Truffleicious at the Stables Kitchen in Great Chalfield Wiltshire.

The first recipe is for a versatile, low-calorie dressing, which pairs, particularly well with eggs & tomatoes. It also gives a lift to a new potato salad. It is always worth making your own salad dressings as they are far cheaper than their commercially made counterparts & are free from artificial flavourings, colours & additives.
