    An authentic Thai hot and sour soup. Do not attempt to omit the coriander, as this is essential. Use thai basil instead of regular basil if you can find it. Tom yum paste is hot, so try the soup before adding the chilli and decide if any extra heat is required. You can buy the paste in Asian supermarkets or there's a brand called "Thai taste" at Waitrose. This is well worth the trouble!

    Baba ghanoush, also known as baba ganoush, is a heavenly roasted aubergine dip which originates from Lebanon. Delicious served with pitta, vegetables and houmous as part of a meze platter, or - of course - on its own!

    A classic Latin American dish - the seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. This is so easy to make, but will impress even the most discerning of guests! Fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.

    These are really healthy and not fried. Lovely change for a summer party served with one or both of the dipping sauces. Well worth the effort - these are fantastic.
