    Hearty fish steaks baked with garlic, tomatoes and herbs make a dish redolent of the Mediterranean coast. Try serving with rice or crusty bread and a green salad, or a side dish of green vegetables such as Roasted Asparagus with Caramelised Shallot Dressing or Braised Fennel (both on this website).

    This recipe uses chicken legs, but works for part, or indeed a whole chicken. It goes well with roasted potatoes.

    This is a really basic way to roast peppers for use in any recipe. Choose any colour peppers you like, or use a variety of colours. It's even quicker if you use the grill. After they are roasted you can add olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or lightly sauté in olive oil and garlic to serve with feta cheese on crunchy toast.

    This dressing is great with artichokes, asparagus, or green salad, and it's one of the easiest recipes I have! Using a good quality olive oil makes a big difference in this dressing.
