So easy to make and so enjoyable with a glass of cold white wine. Serve as a starter with green salad and crostini. This is my best friend Tina's recipe which is very summery and a dish you will find in all the Greek islands and Cyprus. Enjoy and dream of your next holiday!

This is something different and decidedly tasty to make on the BBQ. These are homemade sausages traditional in Cyprus that are actually simply seasoned. They turn wonderfully crispy. Eat as is or in a pitta with chopped tomato, parsley, onion, cucumber, and tahini. Add plenty of fresh lemon any way you serve it.

Halloumi is a firm-textured Cypriot cheese that's delicious char-grilled. Here it's served with red onions on a bed of soft salad leaves, then drizzled with a hot dressing. Serve with good seeded crusty bread.

This is a traditional dessert dish from Cyprus - in fact, it's my mum's recipe. The best and easiest cheesecake for beginners, it only takes only 20 minutes to make and is perfect for hot summer days.

The Spanish cook many things on rock salt, which imparts an incredible texture and flavour. Try these canape Cypriot potatoes.

Halloumi cheese and fresh, juicy watermelon are a fantastic salty-sweet pair. In Cyprus, fresh halloumi slices are served with watermelon for breakfast or dessert, but I think frying the halloumi and adding mint increases the flavour and makes a delightful summer salad.

A succulent, juicy beef burger featuring favourite Cypriot spices and a topping of tzatziki and marinated red onions. An explosion of flavour and a must for anyone who loves the flavours of authentic gyros, soutzouk and kebabs.
