Ah heatwaves… When it gets hot outside our first reaction is to fire up the Barbie, dust off the Pimms and stock up on salads. And then, 24 hours later, down comes the rain, the Pimms goes back on the top shelf and we’re all back hunkered round our hot warming cuppa soups before we know it.
But not this time. This hot spell is looking like it could last all week – touch wood. Of course this is great news, although after just one weekend we’re kind of already all iceberg lettuce-d out. Which is why we’ve decided to tap food writer/caterer Sophie Wright for some summery after-work supper ideas. Sophie is one of the cool young female cooks currently shaking up British kitchens called the YBF’s (Young British Foodies), a feature which appears in this weeks issue of Grazia.
