With the longer days come a longing to jet off somewhere, eating berries in the garden, fresh fish by the sea or simply making the most of the outdoors. 

You can still bring the taste of Summer home by ditching the hearty stews and casseroles for lighter salads, plump berries and fruits and chargrilled steaks or kebabs on the barbeque. While the weather lasts, anyway!
