Summer on Fat Pig Farm by Matthew Evans


The Gourmet Farmer showcases beautiful seasonal produce with a collection of fresh, simple and nourishing summer recipes

Welcome to Summer on Fat Pig Farm, where the garden prospers, the berries ripen and the aroma of fresh herbs lingers in the air. Summer is the season of surplus, a time when the sun is high and the cooking is easy.

Summer cooking is about the best of the season, revelling in what's good from the garden and the orchard, using the best from the land, without cooking the cook. Dig in to the perfect summer breakfast trifle or indulgent waffles with butterscotch pears.

Enjoy a rustic farm meal of zucchini and buffalo mozzarella lasagne or cider-soaked chicken, while sipping white peach and mint sangria. Finish with vanilla-poached nectarines or raspberry cake drizzled with elderberry syrup. Everything done to maximise the flavours of the season.

Cooking in the hot months is usually shorter and simpler, lighter and brighter – and Matthew's famously reliable recipes help you bring summer into your kitchen.
