Ham, Cheese and Egg Crêpes with Griddled Asparagus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a perfect tea for lots of hungry children, but it would also be a good weekend late breakfast, depending on your mood. It’s the classic way that many crêpe stallholders cook crêpes to order late at night around the major tourist attractions in Paris. They are always very popular, often with long queues, and once you’ve tasted them it’s easy to understand why.

Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Peas and Mozzarella

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you find the thought of making homemade pasta daunting, gnocchi is a good stepping-stone. You could use store bought gnocchi, though, if you don’t feel up to it. Either way, the combination of golden gnocchi nuggets with creamy mozzarella, sweet garden peas and a drizzling of flavoured butter is a breath of summer air. This makes a superb starter or a light supper.

Watermelon and Feta Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

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.
