This dish is made with lots of seasonal produce including Jersey Royals and local asparagus. The secret however is the homemade pesto which is well making the effort to make. You can keep it in the fridge for up to a week. You can use it to make delicious pasta with pappardella ribbons. Mix with a little cream for a tasty sauce to serve with salmon or chicken. If you use vegetarian Parmesan today’s recipe will be suitable for vegetarians.

As a marinade for meat or poultry, beer penetrates, flavours and tenderizes. Good beer is less acidic than wine so your food can be left in your marinade longer increasing the flavour. When you are roasting or braising and beer is used to baste the food or in the basting sauce, it imparts a rich, dark colour as the sugars caramelise. So, cooking with beer is great for adding flavour to BBQ’s and slow cooked casseroles and stews.
After the excesses of Christmas, I quite often want something with plenty of flavour but that is perhaps not too substantial
Hash is a dish made from diced or chopped meat, potatoes, and flavourings such as onions, spices and herbs that are mixed together and then cooked. The name is thought to come from the French verb ‘ hacher ‘ meaning to chop.
