Recipes for April

Not all are exactly seasonal and certainly not regional. But they are delicious!
Just in case some of our growers are among the lucky few with asparagus ready for harvesting on their patch, here’s a recipe to celebrate the start of the asparagus season…
Next is Greek olive bread (eliopitta) which I baked for a GO2 lunch the April – not a crumb was left.
The next is for Amy at her request – Tarta de Santiago (or, as our Spanish co-gardeners will know, Cake of St James). Amy asked me if I knew of a famous flourless almond cake that her Portuguese friend knows and loves (but has forgotten the recipe). When I described this to her she said: “Yes, that’s it! That’s the one!”
I baked that for the first time at Easter and OMG it is fantastic….
All the best
