Debate about whether this is an Indian summer or not is largely irrelevant, top line is, it’s hot, it’s sunny, it’s glorious and, with apologies to shiftworkers, it’s the weekend.
As the supermarkets know, we’ll all be celebrating in the best way we know – and apparently that’s with G&Ts, rosé wine and burgers. Yes, everyone’s dusting their barbecues off in a unseasonably hot state of delirium. I’m hauling out that jar of gazpacho that’s been looking sorry for itself in the fridge these last few weeks and planning a fishy weekend by the sea; mackerel over the coals, great big salads, kebabs with vegetables and halloumi (the king of cheeses), some home made burgers and ice cold beer.
Hot weather food is very much the order of the day. How about you? Is anyone not planning a barbecue this weekend?
