Dear <<First Name>>,
It passed 40C this week so its time for just throwing things in a blender, not even attempting to go near the oven and creating concoctions that double up as glorious gloopy dips - only waiting for a bag of chips or if you are feeling really energetic and virtuous some carrot sticks or courgette batons - or sensational salad dressings just waiting for a bag of salad leaves. So if you have five minutes and a blender you can make these. Enjoy!

Archive Dive: "Ranch Dressing - It takes all herbs" One of my summer time favourites..an excuse to snip and chop up a mix of fresh herbs that take your fancy. Its delicate and creamy and has nothing to do with that rancid liquid that comes out of bottles sold in the supermarket.

There is a reason I have a category "leftovers" on my blog. As my grandmother was fond of saying "throwing away food is the work of the devil" and I just hate it. More, I get a peculiar pleasure from making a recipe up out of what I find in my fridge and cupboards. Food waste is revolting on every front and over zealous sell by dates and "silly" regulations are often to blame. Read about some common sense entering into Law in France and Italy
More from Slow Food.....This year a highlight was cooking for Carlo Petrini, the President of Slow Food, heritage Romanian food. Its great to continue our dialogue with him and his team and to have hosted Slow Food groups and to see Balkan Food celebrated at Terra Madre. Read about it here.
