Welcome Can you believe we’re already six months into the year? This time last year, we were flying the flag and hanging out bunting for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Right now, I’m supposed to be telling you to get outside, enjoy the sunshine, take the kids to the park, but who really knows if the sun will put his hat on? If the unpredictable weather has taught us one thing, though, it’s to make the most of the occasions we have and plan for all eventualities. Having a Father’s Day BBQ? If it’s raining, you could cook the food in the oven or send Dad out with a golfing umbrella to char the chops! Planning a picnic? It will taste just as good inside – turn on the heating and no one will be any the wiser… It wouldn’t be a proper British summer if we didn’t enjoy seasonal food. So make the most of any time off and celebrate in style.

Super sushi Perfect for summer, try this Chosen by you tasty range from Next time you fancy a snack, reach for delicious sushi. It’s a good source of protein and the majority of our range is low-fat – so it’s a great choice if you’re getting your body bikini-ready for your hols. Try swapping sarnies for a tasty selection of our sushi rolls, or serve as part of a summer buffet. Satisfying and full of flavour, our sushi is prepared using quality, authentic ingredients. And there’s no raw fish in sight, just delicious smoked and cooked seafood, crunchy veg, along with sweet chilli chicken and tempting tuna teriyaki. Look out for them in the Food to go section in store.

♦ Sushi was an early form of fast food in Japan. Today, it’s the perfect convenience food and is great for lunch on the go. ♦ Sushi does not mean raw fish – it means ‘rice seasoned with vinegar’. ♦ Our sushi is made by experts, and the knives they use are descendants of samurai swords – the blades should be sharpened every day. Most chefs train for two years before becoming sushi experts.

Producer Makhan Padda introduces us to his Worcestershire farm, where he grows juicy red strawberries

16 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | JUNE 2013


WHO GROWS IT STRAWBERRIES ‘I love the smell and taste of fresh strawberries,’ says Makhan Padda, Founder and Owner of Vicarage Nurseries, an award-winning, familyowned farm in Worcestershire. Established in 1996, the farm was set on a 2.6-acre site and run as a one-man operation. Fast-forward to the present day and Vicarage Nurseries now stretches to more than 300 acres with up to 500 seasonal staff and a soaring production of 900 tonnes of strawberries. A GREAT SUCCESS In 1966, Makhan moved to the UK from Punjab in India, where he grew rice, sugar cane and wheat. He had a variety of jobs before venturing back to agriculture in 1996 to start Vicarage Nurseries. With no prior knowledge of growing soft fruit, Makhan worked hard to become well respected in

the local community. In fact, he’s known to many in the area as Mr Strawberry, and last year, the company was named Soft Fruit Grower of the Year by Horticulture Week magazine.

1

STRAWBERRY PRODUCTION ‘We grow strawberry plants in soil on poly-covered high beds and in peat bags on beds under polytunnels,’ Makhan says. ‘This year, we’ll be supplying eight different varieties to Asda.’ DELICIOUS STRAWBERRIES Makhan likes to share his strawberries with his eight grandchildren – he always takes a tray when he visits and makes them strawberry yogurt, which goes down a treat. Turn to page 40 for our masterclass on delicious strawberry shortcakes.

2

Well respected in the local community, Makhan is known to many people in the area as Mr Strawberry 1 Vicarage Nurseries employs up to 500 seasonal workers for field preparation, installing irrigation, tunnelling, planting, mixing fertilisers, weeding, spraying and harvesting. 2 The strawberries are picked when 80 per cent of the fruit is coloured red. 3 Strawberries planted in June start showing flowers after 30 days of planting and, under normal weather conditions, the fruit is ready to harvest after 60 days of planting.

HOLIDAY COOKING FOOD

The great outdoors When it comes to camping, the key to cooking tasty dishes is planning ahead – to help you get started we’ve created simple recipes overleaf Cooking outdoors is what makes camping so enjoyable. It’s best to work out what you want to eat beforehand, so that you only pack the kitchen utensils and ingredients that you’ll use. Dishes also need to be uncomplicated – and to help you get started we’ve created some brilliant recipes on the following pages. They also work equally well if you’re caravanning or staying in selfcatering accommodation. WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU ♦ Non-perishable foods Pasta, rice, packet mixes, tinned/jarred food are great for camping. Why not do your Asda shop online and get it delivered to your destination? Simply set up a second delivery address in your account and be sure to check

that your delivery will be accepted on your behalf if it arrives before you do!

♦ Heavy-based pots and pans with tight-fitting lids These allow food to cook more quickly – just a couple of pots and pans will do. And don’t forget your oven mitts!

♦ Cool box Pre-frozen freezer packs and perishable food will keep fresh in a cool box for a few days. ♦ Portable barbecue or a camping stove All our recipes on the following pages can be cooked on them. ♦ A gas canister or charcoal You’ll need these for your stove or barbecue, and don’t forget to bring the matches!

If you’re treating your dad to a fabulous steak dinner on Father’s Day, why not try this great herb crumb instead of serving a sauce? We’ve used sirloin for its excellent flavour and texture, but if he’s a fillet or rump fan, the spring onion, thyme and breadcrumb topping goes well with any of them. It’ll go brilliantly with lamb or pork chops, too – just change the herbs. Try mint with lamb and sage with pork.

Match with… The Wine Selection French Merlot,

It’s hard to beat a juicy steak for taste, but this delicious topping raises it to another level – perfect for Father’s Day

Jim’s tips ● Always remove

the steaks from the fridge 20 minutes before you cook them as they will cook more evenly when they’re at room temperature.

● Leaving cooked

meat to rest for 5

minutes before you serve it allows the juices to be reabsorbed into the meat. This makes the steak tastier and more tender.

H How to make it m T This easy crumb topping with its to quintessentially British qu flavours is perfect for special occasions sp

❶ Preheat the grill to hot. In a small bowl, mix together the horseradish, mustard, spring onions, thyme and butter to form a paste. Add the breadcrumbs and stir well. ❷ Grill the steaks for about 4 minutes on each side. Grills vary enormously in their heat and power, so you may need to adjust this time. Cook the steaks until they are to your liking. ❸ Top with the crumb mixture, pressing it down very lightly. Return the steaks to the grill and cook until the crumbs start to brown – this will take about 1 minute. ❹ Sprinkle with more thyme leaves and cover loosely with a tent of foil. Leave to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes, before serving with salad. CALORIES

Glynis McGuinness Food Editor

RECIPE: GLYNIS MCGUINNESS. PHOTOGRAPHS: LAUREN MCLEAN. STYLING: TAMZIN FERDINANDO

These American family favourites are a cross between sweet scones and British-style shortbread. They’re easy to make – the secret to their success is to handle the dough as little as possible in order to keep the shortcake light. The classic filling is a combination of softly whipped cream and fresh strawberries. You can use other fruits, too – try raspberries, blueberries, or sliced peaches or nectarines.

1 Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Sift the flour with the baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add the butter and stir once to coat in flour. Lift pieces of the butter and some flour out of the bowl and gently rub together between your fingertips and thumbs. Keep doing this until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

2 Stir in the sugar. Mix the milk with 1tbsp of the whipping cream and then pour it into the bowl of rubbed-in crumbs. Mix with a round-bladed knife to make a soft dough. Gather the dough together with floured hands and put on a lightly floured surface. Pat down evenly with floured hands until it is about 1cm thick. It’s too soft to roll out.

3 Strawberry shortcakes 200g plain flour 2 level tsp baking powder 75g butter, chilled and diced 75g caster sugar 100ml whole milk 125ml whipping cream 1 level tsp icing sugar, plus extra for dusting Few drops of vanilla extract 350g Asda Extra Special Strawberries

Using a 6cm cutter, cut out as many rounds as possible. Gather up the leftover dough, pat out again and cut more rounds. Repeat until you have eight rounds in total. Place on the baking trays, leaving a gap between each to allow them to spread slightly. Bake for 15-18 minutes until risen and golden brown. Leave on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

4 Whip the rest of the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla until it starts to thicken and just holds its shape. Take care not to over-whip – if using an electric mixer, set it on the slowest speed. Slice a few of the strawberries. Sandwich the shortcakes with the cream and sliced strawberries, and dust with icing sugar. Serve the rest of the strawberries separately in a bowl.

Glynis’ tips ● You could also make this recipe into one large shortcake and serve it cut into slices. Divide the dough in half and pat each portion into a 17cm round. Bake as above for 17-20 minutes, then assemble.

● Instead of whipping cream, you could use 125g mascarpone mixed with 1tsp icing sugar, a few drops of vanilla extract and 1-2tbsp whole milk. This keeps better than whipped cream if you serve the shortcakes outside on a hot day.

Man up to your

health Too busy to see your GP or don’t want to be criticised about your diet? Don’t make excuses when it comes to your health. Prevention is always better than cure

Men aren’t exactly known for their willingness to seek help when it comes their health. In fact, in a recent study, one-third said they’d only see a doctor if prompted by their partner, or if they felt they really needed to. Men are often embarrassed to discuss their symptoms, but an early diagnosis can make a big difference to a successful outcome.

Asda’s in-house pharmacists can advise on a range of health issues and prescribe over-the-counter treatments†. Here, David Gallier-Harris, one of our pharmacists, answers your most common queries and explains that it’s never too late to get healthy.

72 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | JUNE 2013

What types of illnesses are men most at risk from? ‘The number one health issue that affects men is cardiovascular disease,’ says David. ‘This is used to describe a range of conditions, such as having a heart attack or stroke.’ Are men more likely to suffer from certain conditions at certain ages? ‘Cardiovascular disease can affect men in all age groups, but the chance of complications starts to go up in the mid-40s and keeps rising as you get older,’ David points out. ‘As you approach 45, it’s worth having health checks every few years.’

Which heart health-related warning signs should never be ignored? ‘More often than not, there are no real immediate warning signs. Prevention is better than cure and having a health check to determine your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, diabetes risk and body mass index, and making lifestyle changes, such as stopping smoking, can make a huge difference.’ At what age are men most likely to suffer from prostate problems? Prostate problems affect around 60 per cent of men aged 60-plus to some degree, but these are often

Only 65% of men would definitely consult a doctor for chest pain*


Men are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease at an earlier age than women*** easily treatable,’ says David. ‘Symptoms often include difficulty in passing urine or feeling that you’ve not fully emptied your bladder. Have a chat with your pharmacist or GP to discuss any symptoms.’ What medical conditions are men more likely to suffer from now, compared with 10 years ago? ‘Type two diabetes is on the rise,’ says David. ‘This might be explained by obesity rates, which have increased steadily over the past 30 years. It’s thought that diabetes is linked to excess body fat in almost two-thirds of cases.’

What is your top tip for men who want to lead healthier lives but lack motivation? ‘It’s never too late to make changes to your lifestyle – changes which will have a real benefit to your health,’ says David. ‘For example, giving up smoking has a benefit from the moment you stop, with your blood pressure returning to normal after about 20 minutes. After just five years, your risk of having a heart attack falls to about half of that of a smoker.’ What’s your advice for men concerned about a health issue but who are reluctant to seek help? ‘Don’t be afraid to come and see us,’ urges David. ‘Any conversation you have with a member of the Asda pharmacy team is completely confidential. We have a consultation room in all our pharmacies. Just ask for a private chat with the pharmacist.’

65% of men in England are overweight** For only £10, you can have a health check at your local Asda pharmacy. Just book an appointment and a specially trained Asda colleague will check your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and BMI, and a pharmacist will discuss the results with you.

The secret to looking great on the beach this summer lies in your choice of swimwear Choosing swimwear can be quite daunting but with so many styles available, you’ll be able to find the perfect shape for your figure. Our advice is to try on a variety of looks to see what suits you and not to be afraid of colour and prints, both of which are potentially more slimming than the obvious black.

BEST FOR… everyone These are great for popping over swimwear at the pool or at the beach. Make a statement with bold prints and colours that will flatter your tan. This summer, tropical patterns, neon brights and animal motifs are very popular. Choose a style with sleeves if you want to protect delicate shoulders from the sun.

Cosmetics usually have a sellby date of two years, so ditch anything that’s been lurking for longer than that. TIP: If you’ve had an eye infection, replace all eye make-up and wash your applicators. Mascara has a particularly short shelf life. Replace after three months when it starts to get clumpy. TIP: Avoid pumping the wand, which forces air into the barrel, causing mascara to dry out.

Streamline your make-up bag with products that multi-task and can be applied easily with fingers. TIP: Swap serums, creams and foundations for a BB cream such as Rimmel BB Cream, £5*. Want your handbag to feel extra light? Opt for just mascara, concealer and a palette with eye, lip and cheek colour. TIP: To help your make-up last longer, avoid exposing it to sunlight.

Wash make-up brushes in shampoo regularly to remove bacteria and product build-up. Rinse and dry them on a towel overnight. TIP: Before drying, reshape bristles – try not to change their natural shape.

HOW TO MAKE IT: 1. Cut the pork fillet into bite sized chucks, then place in a medium sized bowl, add the groundnut oil and soy sauce. Leave to marinade in the fridge for a couple of hours. 2. In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk with the curry paste and cook for a couple of minutes. Then stir in the honey, peanut butter and soy sauce. 3. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Add the mayonnaise and lime juice, and mix the satay sauce up nicely.

5. Cook the pork skewers on the griddle or BBQ for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the pork feels firm to the touch and there is no sign of blood. 6. Brush the pork with a little of the satay sauce and cook for a further 30 seconds on each side, or until the sauce starts to caramelise. Serve the pork with the rest of the satay sauce and lime wedges.

4. Thread the pork onto 8 medium sized skewers. Preheat a griddle pan or BBQ. 25
