This recipe also works well with Galia or Honeydew melon if watermelon is not in season. You can pare it down to the essential contrasts and serve no more than a plate of chunky watermelon sprinkled with feta and toasted pumpkin seeds that gets drizzled with lime juice at the last minute. Once made, I promise you that it will become a regular favourite on your summer table.
These lacy and deliciously crisp biscuits keep perfectly for several days. Serve them with ice creams, sorbets, granitas, mousses and soufflés and anything to do with chocolate. They are also perfect with perfectly ripe fruit such as pears or peaches.
A perfect goats cheese nibble or starter.
This is a lovely refreshing salad which I like to serve when the new season oranges from Italy, and dates from Morocco arrive in the shops in December. I scramble around in the garden trying to find a few surviving mint leaves to freshen it up. If the mint has all been scorched by the frost, I substitute it with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds. This dish can be served on its own with perhaps a little yoghurt or with yoghurt and vanilla ice cream.
