Lately I’ve been pouring over Rachel Allen’s Home Cooking, particularly the page with the recipe for baked raspberry and ricotta cheesecake – it looks and sounds beautiful, summery, and a little lighter than a regular cheesecake, but I’m anxious that I’d end up overcooking it and drying it out.
Still, I suppose I could always ask Rachel for her tips herself – she’ll be appearing at the BBC Summer Good Food Show, starting next week; she’ll be in the Summer Kitchen, along side some of our other most-loved TV cook names, no doubt cooking up some lovely seasonal treats.
I’m looking forward to stocking up on fresh, natural, locally sourced goodies too – FoodLoversBritain.com has got its own little fair section going on too, with independent food producers like Lodge Farm Kitchen, which makes home-cooked treats (such as the fruit pie above and apple pudding below) straight from the farmhouse.
Enjoy – I’m planning on escaping from football fever there!
The BBC Summer Good Food Show, NEC Birmingham, 16-20 June
