There’s something about summertime that triggers a desire for the rich blue Mediterranean coastline and amazing cuisine to go with it.
We find ourselves longing for the South of France, where the climate is perfect for growing a whole host of incredible ingredients and excellent culinary creations.
This year we are privileged to bring you a collection of three typical Provençal recipes by Mark Dodson – a master of classical French cuisine.
The food of Provence is rather lighter in comparison to the rest of France and with this starter, main and dessert that Mark Dodson has created for us we can enjoy a slice of French Riviera right here, in the British summer sun!
We are delighted to share this wonderful starter recipe with you by Mark Dodson. If you're looking for something different these crispy Polenta chips are the new taste sensation.
You and your guests are in for a real treat with this fragrant fish soup recipe that we are delighted to bring to you by Mark Dodson. Provence inspired it makes for a wonderful dinner party dish.
There's no better way to end a Provençal meal than with this fresh and aromatic dessert and we're delighted that Mark Dodson is sharing it with us.
With all the sunshine lately, this gorgeous sorbet beckons. It is light, fruity and would be fabulous served between courses, sometimes called an Intermezzo to cleanse the palate, or as a refreshing dessert.
For this recipe we used a mixture of oyster, button and chestnut mushrooms. It's the perfect accompaniment to meat or fish dishes.
