Nishel's washed-out picnic lunch

Nishel prepared all this beautiful food for a picnic, but then it rained so we had to eat inside. She made a delicious range of salads; included here are chickpeas, coriander, tomato and lemon juice; couscous with aubergine and greek salad.

Bulgur wheat salad with pork

Thanks to Erin, for her lovely lunch made from leftovers; bulgur wheat salad with mint and parsley, fresh tomatoes, and grilled pork. Dressed simply with lemon, good olive oil, and some coarse sea salt.

Erin has a great food blog, Apron Caper - I love her description of herself in the kitchen:

While Martha and Julia serve as inspiration, I usually feel more like a combination of Inspector Gadget and Nancy Drew.

Have a look!

Katie's chilled cucumber soup with wasabi and avocado cream

I have tasted this and it is delicious. I thought pureed cucumber (which is essentially all it is) might have tasted bland, but the cream (she used creme fraiche, you can also use yogurt) really gives it an edge. It will definitely be featuring on one of my menus soon.
