    Delicious starter of deep fried crumbed mozzarella balls with a homemade tomato and basil sauce. Most can be prepared ahead for an easy, impressive starter.

    A healthier alternative to the deep-fried onion bhajis you find in Indian restaurants. These are baked and exceedingly tasty. They are sweet, tender and very moreish. Serve as an appetiser or starter.

    These cheesy courgette cakes are an excellent way to use up that abundance of courgette from the garden. Serve with a bit of tomato sauce or soured cream on top.
