THE BEST FRESH BRUSCHETTA

This simple bruschetta is a carnival of colours and a true festival of flavours. The twist away from traditional bruschetta will excite and ignite your taste buds. The mix of ingredients might sound a little random but trust me the fresh flavours of the melon, tomato, lime and basil together make the perfect marriage. There is a slight kick from the pickled peppers which adds that extra spark to this beautiful aromatic mix. Choose the best ingredients you can, if possible home or locally grown fruit and veg and good bread (sourdough if possible). I served this as a starter at my first Supper Club and needless to say every single last plate came back shiny clean with not one crumb nor morsel of topping on them.


METHOD

Apron on


Heat the oven to 220C (200C fan)/.

Cut 4 chunky slices of sourdough. Drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with a hefty pinch of salt. Set them on a baking tray and roast until they are toasted on one side then turn to crisp up the other side.

While your toast is doing it’s thing - Chop up your tomatoes. Don’t worry if they are different sizes, the texture contrast of the chunks works. Cut up the melon and add it to the bowl of tomatoes. Add the juice of 1 lime and the zest of 2. Finely chop the pickled peppers and put them in the bowl with the torn basil. I like to drain my mix in a colander so it’s not too wet on the toast. Be sure to save the liquid, it will make a delicious dressing.

Once your bread is nice and crispy, rub one side with a clove of garlic (be brave and smother it on, the more garlicy the better).

Pile on your tomato mix high.

Enjoy,

WARM SALAD OF ROASTED KALE COCONUT AND TOMATOES

Growing and cooking organic, delicious food is a huge passion of mine. We grow our own kale and each summer our 94 year old Grandad (Terry) grows enough tomatoes to feed our entire family so this is a recipe where the key ingredients are literally at hand and that makes me incredibly happy. The dressing in this Anna Jones recipe combines all of my favourite flavours - it’s sweet and salty yet packs a fresh punch.

METHOD

Apron on


Heat the oven to 220C (200C fan)/.

Halve the tomatoes and place them on a baking tray with some salt and pepper, a good drizzle of olive oil, the zest of both limes, and the juice of one. Roast for 20 minutes until blistered and golden.

Next, pile the kale on to a baking tray with the coconut. Pour over the soy sauce and toss well until everything is coated. Roast in the oven with the tomatoes for the last 5 to 10 minutes of their cooking time, until crisp. 

Meanwhile, mix all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl with the juice of the second lime. Taste and add a little more seasoning or lime juice if needed, letting your taste buds guide you—remember the dressing will be less punchy once it hits the salad. Pull the kale and tomatoes out of the oven and transfer to a big bowl. Toss with the miso dressing, adding a little at a time and tasting as you go, and serve still warm.

Enjoy,

2 ears corn
500g tomatoes (all shapes, sizes and colours)

SUMMER CORN AND TOMATO SALAD

I have lost count of the amount of times I have made this Anna Jones salad. Every BBQ, summer dinner party or picnic - this is my go to. It’s insanely easy, quick and cheap to make, not to mention it’s fresh, bright and absolutely delicious. I remember as a child favouring summer tomatoes over sweets and I’m still obsessed to this day.

METHOD

Apron on

Heat the oven to 220C (200C fan)/.

Tear the bread into small, rough chunks and lay them on a baking tray. Drizzle generously with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast for about 10-15 minutes. You want the croutons to be crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Meanwhile, make the salad.
Cut the corn kernels from the ears; I do this by resting the end of the corn in a large mixing bowl, which stops the corn from flying everywhere.

Cut the tomatoes into bite-sized chunks and add them to the bowl.

Finely slice the spring onions and add these, too.

Add a good pinch of salt and pepper, plus the vinegar, and leave to sit for at least 30 minutes.

When the croutons are ready, take them out of the oven. Roughly chop the almonds and scatter on top.

Tear the herbs into the bowl and a little extra olive oil then toss everything together (adding the croutons last).

Enjoy,
