Time: A Year and a Day in the KitchenGardners
By Gill Meller
Morning, daytime and night these are the touchstones of our days, and days are the markers of our years. Gill's dishes fit within this framework, moving through the seasons, from freshness and light, to comfort and warmth.
Gill's dishes follow the course of the day: simple breakfasts (wild mushroom & sausage chachouka, buckwheat pancakes), glorious seasonal lunches (steamed vegetables with tamari, honey & sunflower seeds, chicken with chamomile, tomato & anchovy tart, date, olive oil & fennel cake), evening gatherings in the soft glow of summer or chill of winter (lentil dhal with crispy kale, roast pheasant with parsnips & chorizo, ceviche with rhubarb, lemon & chilli, treacle tart with thyme & orange, quince & vanilla crème brûlée).
