Whie nights

The Italians call it the aperitivo – that early evening drink served alongside light snacks. The perfect pour for such times is the versatile Martini Vermouth – refreshingly light, filled with quality botanicals, and available in Extra Dry, Bianco and Rosso. One of the coolest ways to enjoy it is in a Martini

Bianco and tonic, pictured here. To make, mix 60ml Martini Bianco and 60ml tonic, in a tumbler over ice, and add a slice of lime. Martini Vermouth, £9/1ltr*

House of orange It’s the sweet and bitter orange peels, when distilled with all-natural ingredients, that give Cointreau its unmistakable zesty aroma and balanced, fruity taste. This orange liqueur is a brilliant base for summer cocktails, such as the classic Cointreau Fizz. Simply fill a tumbler with ice, add 50ml Cointreau and 20ml fresh lime juice, then top with sparkling water and stir. There are endless twists you can try, too – with cucumber, berries or chopped fruit. Cointreau, £13/50cl**

LA DOLCE VITA Miscela means blend in Italian, and these easy-drinking wines combine the very best of the grape varieties grown on the island of Sicily. One sip and you and your friends will be transported to a Mediterranean piazza, where the Miscela wine story began. The white wine offers aromas of lemon and peach with hints of refreshing apple, while the red has notes of ripe and jammy black fruit. Both will bring a little Italian pizzazz to any social gathering over the summer months. Miscela Nero d’Avola Syrah, £5/75cl†; Miscela Grillo Pinot Grigio, £5/75cl†

R CLASS ACT LETTER I’m a home economics teacher and have recently discovered your super magazine and, in particular, the In Season feature. We teach pupils about sustainable foods, and many of the articles in the May issue were really useful for this subject. We’re really delighted to see you encouraging the use of fresh, local produce. Well done. Aileen Cairns, Edinburgh FRESHER APPROACH As a student just finishing my first year of university, I have loved reading Tesco magazine for inspiration and tips. I was terrified of falling into the ‘beans and pasta’ student diet but, through ordering my shopping online and following the recipes I’ve found in your magazine, it’s been so easy to cook for myself. I particularly love the Dinner for two feature that gives me an evening meal, then lunch the next day, too! Thank you for filling the mag with recipes that prove anyone can cook nice food. Rebecca Harrington, Hampshire

FREE AND EASY I can’t tell you how happy I was to see the ‘Piece of cake’ story (pictured, right) in What’s In Store [May issue]. Tesco is myy go-to shop for free-from foods since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease last year. It was also great to see you championing Coeliac Awareness Week! A huge thank you from a loyal customer. Amber England, Nottinghamshire

MASTER CHEF I’ve been stuck in a rut cooking the same meals, week in, week out, for my husband and four children. I picked up your May magazine for the first time, and have been busily cooking all the recipes – Spinach menemen, Piri piri prawns, Sticky spiced ribs and Polpette to name just a few! The family now thinks I’m amazing, and are already saying they can’t wait for what’s in the next magazine. Thank you! Lisa Worsley, Hertfordshire

in season GORGEOUSLY VIBR ANT DISHES THAT MAKE THE MOST OF SUMMER’S ABUNDANT FRESH PRODUCE

Peas These bright, luscious pods are at their best from now until October. Peas can be whizzed to make a soup, braised in butter or blanched as a side (add mint to enhance their flavour). Choose pods that are full but not bulging – less mature peas are softer and sweeter. Cook fresh peas in a small amount of unsalted boiling water for 2-3 minutes or steam for 1-2 minutes.

* * *

H E R BY P E A H O U M O U S Serves 6 Takes 15 mins Cost per serve 34p 250g peas 1 garlic clove 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 1 lemon, zested and juiced 1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained (2 tbsp brine reserved) and rinsed 2 tbsp tahini paste handful mint leaves, roughly sliced, plus extra to garnish handful chives, chopped crudities, to serve griddled pitta, to serve

1 Cook the peas in a pan of boiling water for 2 minutes, or until just tender. Drain and run under cold water, then drain again. 2 In a food processor, whizz all but a handful of the peas with the garlic, oil, lemon zest and juice, chickpeas and brine, tahini and herbs, until smooth. Season. 3 Fold through the remaining peas, then spoon into a bowl. Drizzle with a little extra oil and garnish with the extra mint leaves. Serve with pitta and/or crudités, as you prefer.

Summer h a rvest

Beetroot With its sweet, earthy flavour, beetroot is delicious in salads and soups, and adds depth to chocolate cakes, too. Beetroot is at its sweetest in July; pick beets that feel firm when pressed. The green leaves are also edible: wilt larger ones with butter and lemon juice, as you would spinach, or use in salads. To roast, wash (but don’t peel), then trim the stalks and root to about 3cm each – this will prevent the colour from bleeding. Wrap in foil, roast, then peel and remove the stalk and root.

A member of the rose family, this soft and delicate red berry must be carefully hand-picked. British varieties are at their best in July and August. When choosing raspberries, avoid any with the hulls still attached, as this indicates they were picked before fully ripe and so are likely to be tart. finest* Berry Jewel and Supersweet raspberries are delicious on their own, or try Rosedene Farms raspberries in a coulis with ice cream. You could also use in place of strawberries for a twist on Eton mess.

Serves 4 Takes 25 mins, plus freezing Cost per serve £2·07

* * *

50g caster sugar 300g raspberries, plus handful to serve ½ lemon, juiced and zest pared 2 tbsp vodka 400ml prosecco

1 Put the sugar and 50ml water into a small pan over a gentle heat. Cook until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute. Set aside to cool. 2 Purée the raspberries in a blender, then stir through the lemon juice. If you prefer a smoother sorbet, push the raspberries through a sieve to remove the seeds.

3 Mix the raspberry purée with the sugar water, then pour into a shallow freezer-proof container. Freeze for 2 hours, until the mixture has begun to set, then break up with a fork and freeze for a further hour. Break up again and whizz in a blender, then freeze for another hour. Alternatively, churn in an ice-cream maker until frozen, then transfer to a freezer-proof container. 4 In a bowl, whisk the vodka into 4 scoops of sorbet until you have a smooth consistency. Divide between 4 glasses, then top up with prosecco and garnish with whole raspberries and a twist of lemon zest to serve. Each serving contains Energy

stone fruit NOTHING SAYS SUMMER LIKE BITING INTO A FR AGR ANT AND JUICY PE ACH, PLUM OR CHERRY. HERE’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THESE SE A SONAL GEMS

PREP

S T OR E

EAT

To pit stone fruits, run a sharp knife round the kernel, following the line of the fruit, then twist apart. For cherries, remove the stalk, then use a pitter or insert a toothpick or hairpin, twist around the pit and pop it out.

Ripen stone fruit at home by keeping in a warm, dry place. Ripe fruit should be kept in the fridge. To freeze stone fruit, poach or purée first, as once cut the fruit quickly browns.

Stone fruit can be eaten raw as well as in puddings, cakes, purées, sauces, jams and salads. To help intensify the flavour, try adding a little sugar or cinnamon when cooking.

FERNANDO COSMEN, STONE FRUIT PRODUCER Tell us about your job I’m the president at Molinense, a fruitproduction company based in Murcia, Spain. We’ve specialised in growing stone fruit for over 25 years. I oversee the fruit’s journey at every stage – from when it’s growing on the trees to when it hits the stores. Why is Murcia suited to stone fruit? The warm climate means our stone fruit season begins in mid-April, and we’re the first in Europe to harvest, along with Seville. This means our fruit is the first to be exported from Spain to the UK. How do you harvest the fruit? We wait until the fruit has reached its full flavour on the tree, but is not at peak ripeness – which means the customer can keep it at home for a few days before eating it. Our fruit is hand-picked, then quickly taken to the packing house where it’s sorted by size and quality. It’s then boxed, before entering a temperature-controlled environment to maintain freshness. What’s your favourite stone fruit? I’d probably have to choose apricots; once matured the aroma is great, and they taste so sweet and juicy. Although they have countless uses in cooking, I often can’t wait that long! As soon as the fruit is ripe, I simply give them a little wash and tuck in. 16

Va ri et ies PLUMS

CHERRIES

Plums have smooth skin and juicy flesh, but vary in flavour from sweet to tart, and in hue from purple to green. A ripe plum should feel firm, but give slightly when pressed. Enjoy raw, or bake in a classic crumble.

Plump, glossy cherries have a slightly tart flavour and are naturally sweet. Choose firm fruit with the stalks still intact; large, darker cherries tend to be sweetest.

NEC TA RINE S

Smooth-skinned nectarines have a delicate flavour, juicy texture and sweet aroma. They are great eaten raw and are delicious poached, too.

PEACHES

Peaches have a fuzzy skin and fragrant scent. To skin them, drop into boiling water for 15 seconds, then quickly transfer to cold water; the skin should peel away easily.

APRICOTS

Choose apricots that are smooth and soft. They can be used in an elegant apricot and frangipane tart, and they make delicious jam, too, which is great as a glaze for pastries.

here’s no doubt holidays can be stressful. Around a third of us find planning them to be the worst part; getting there is also an issue, with long car journeys especially stressful for parents and, once you’ve arrived, it can take days rather than hours to unwind. But we all need time off from everyday life, so we’ve got the tips and tricks you need to help make holidays hassle-free, from savvy packing ideas to genius planning apps. Plus, there are fun ideas for activities when you only have a day. Here’s to a relaxing and fun-filled summer.

PACK SMART ❂ Having issues with your hand luggage for a flight? Multi-tasking solid toiletries, such as moisturising or exfoliating bars and solid perfume are brilliant when it comes to saving space and minimising liquids. Also, choose a soft (and therefore lighter) bag with plenty of pockets to make organised packing easier. ❂ It really is possible to pack your suitcase like a pro. Make use of every bit of space by rolling up your clothes (this can help prevent creases, too), stuffing shoes with loose items such as chargers and deodorant, and fitting underwear into any small gaps. Find more great tips at tes.co/handluggage, then watch this packing video to see how it’s done at tes.co/packsmart.

S umme r b r ea k s

PREPARE & PLAN The more you organise in advance, the sooner the fun can begin

1

Tick off pre-holiday essentials, such as travel insurance, pet care, checking passports are in date and arranging any necessary vaccinations.

2

Clubcard holders can get 20 per cent off travel insurance online, plus get the kids insured for free with Tesco travel insurance. So the whole family could be insured for the price of a couple’s policy. Visit tescobank. com/travel. See p104 for terms and conditions.

3

Consider how you will travel to your accommodation from the airport or train station

when transfers aren’t included. Then turn to p95 to find out how you can save money on car rentals, as well as on mobile phone charges.

4

When it comes to planning activities, look at a map of the area and group all the things you’d like to do according to their location. This simple activity will help minimise the time you spend travelling.

5

Want original ideas for activities? Check out gogobot.com – it’s packed full of word-ofmouth recommendations from locals and travellers across the globe. Download the full to-do list at tes.co/ holidaychecklist.

TRAVEL IN PEACE Enjoy a calmer journey to your destination – especially if you are travelling with small children

BOOK AHEAD Make the trip as swift and smooth as possible by checking in online before flying, printing train tickets and mapping your route if driving. PACK A SURVIVAL KIT Think about what would be most useful for your brood on a long journey. Blankets and pillows, favourite toys and books (or audiobooks), water and snacks. Pack plastic bags for collecting up the inevitable rubbish.

ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME As obvious as it may sound, expect journeys to take a little longer with small people in tow and factor this into your schedule. TAKE A NO-MESS SARNIE Remove

some of the bread from a roll or baguette to create a slight well in the bread. After you’ve placed the filling inside and put the bread halves together, the contents should remain neatly contained while being eaten – perfect for munching on during long car or train rides. Find more ideas for keeping the kids entertained on long trips at tes.co/traveleasy.

HOLIDAY IN HARMONY KEEP KIDS HAPPY Pack fun portable items, such as notebooks, stickers, crayons and travel games, to keep children entertained. If you’re going away with other families, use the company to your advantage and set up a babysitting rota, plus decide on a few points before you go, such as who’s getting which room if you’re sharing accommodation, and designated cooking slots if you’re all eating in. SHARE THE ORGANISING Make sure everyone feels involved when planning with your partner or friends. Discuss what people would like to do beforehand, and accept you may want to do different things while you’re away – whether there are two of you or 20, you don’t have to spend all your time together. EMBRACE IT ALL Avoid feeling cooped up during downpours by packing waterproof gear, then heading outside in confidence. Outdoor carnivals still happen in showers, of course, and dancing in the rain can add to the experience. Children can have a great time in rainy weather – make it an adventure by visiting the nearest green area and encouraging them to splash about. If you’re staying in a tent, try to pick a spot that’s shady in the morning to avoid waking up too hot. For more tips, visit tes.co/clevercamping.

AND RELAX It can take several days to get into holiday mode. Try these tricks to help you unwind faster

many of us are all systems go until we arrive at our destination. So getting active straight away may be what you need to do to unwind. If this is you, don’t fight the urge to get up and do things.


S umme r b r ea k s ON THE APP KEEP THE HOLIDAY FEELING ALIVE

Use these great apps and websites for a hassle-free holiday. If you’re going abroad, check out roaming deals, switch off your data (and only use free Wi-Fi) or buy a pre-paid sim to help control your usage.

Try these easy steps to help you beat those dreaded post-holiday blues Head outdoors: part of the holiday feel-good factor comes from sunshine and exercise, so make an effort to get outside as much as possible. Start planning your next holiday. Not only will it give you something to look forward to, but it will be easier to remember what you loved about your time away, and what you’d rather avoid for the next trip. Check out travel website kayak.co.uk to search for good deals. Eat out at a restaurant serving the cuisine you enjoyed eating while you were away. Listen to your holiday playlist on your way to work for an instant mood boost.

With Citymapper, you’ll always know where you’re heading – this app will help you find your way around cities across the UK and worldwide. Simply enter your start and end points to uncover the best routes by different modes of transport.

Help get everyone organised with the planning app TripIt. Just forward on confirmation emails from bookings such as hotels, flights and car rentals, and an itinerary will be created for you. You can then share the travel plans easily with everyone who’s going.

For holiday music you can share with family and friends, create a playlist on YouTube, choose the public status, and share the URL with them. You’ll need to be signed in to Google and have created a channel. Click ‘add to’ under the first music video, and ‘create new playlist’.

Google Translate now allows you to instantly translate signs using your phone camera alongside the app – brilliant for finding your way around places where you don’t speak the language.

Avoid moody moments with the Jet Lag Rooster app. It aims to reduce your jet lag after a long flight by letting you know when you need to sleep and when you need to be awake. Simply type in the required details, including flight times and what hours you usually sleep.

Want a fun night out in the UK but don’t know the new area you’re going to be exploring? Locate the top restaurants, bars and clubs nearby, and even take a peek inside, with the Bubblo app.

ith lots of major sporting events taking place this summer, now is the perfect time for children to learn about the relationship between food and energy, and to explain how athletes eat healthily to help their performance. The Eat Happy Project has launched its Food for Fuel Trail to teach children about different food groups, the importance of hydration, as well as encourage them to think about different sports that are played around the world. Primary schools and youth groups can sign up in store for free trips and resources. Or visit tesco.com/ eathappyproject to find all sorts of fun activities.

Learning at home

SCHOOL TRIPS

Primary school children and youth groups, such as Scouts and Girlguiding, can visit their local Tesco store to find out how they get energy from food and drinks, and why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important. They will be shown a nutritional card to help them understand how to read food labels.

To find out more, visit tesco.com/eathappyproject

As well as joining in with the Food For Fuel Trail, you can help your children understand the relationship between food and energy at home. Talk to them about their favourite foods to help them discover their nutritional value. An easy way of getting them interested is to line up food packets and tins so they can compare the nutritional labels, making note of the protein, carbohydrates, sugars and fats per 100g in each.

W e e ke nd WAT E R C R E S S , CO U R G E T T E AND HAM QUICHES

2 x 320g packs ready rolled puff pastry 1 egg, beaten

Makes 6 Takes 1 hr 10 mins, plus cooling Cost per serve 95p

1 Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. In a bowl, toss the vegetables with the oil and spread out in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Season well. Bake for 35 minutes, or until browned. Set aside to cool. 2 Add the chopped rosemary, sundried tomato paste and lamb mince to the roast vegetables in a mixing bowl and combine. 3 Cut each pastry pack into 4 even slices. Spoon a quarter of the lamb mix into the middle of one side of each, fold over and trim the excess pastry to form a half-moon shape. Twist and crimp the pastry edges together to seal. Cut two slashes in the top and repeat to make 8 pasties. Space out on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with beaten egg and bake for 35-40 minutes, until puffed-up and browned.

1 x 320g pack ready rolled shortcrust pastry 1 tbsp olive oil 2 courgettes, sliced 1 x 85g pack watercress, chopped, plus extra to serve 125g thick-cut ham, finely chopped 2 eggs, lightly beaten 200ml single cream 100g ricotta

1 Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Roll the pastry until the rectangle is about a third larger. Cut into 6 even pieces and use to line 6 fluted tart tins, leaving the excess pastry hanging over the tin edges. Prick the bases with a fork. Lay a piece of nonstick baking paper over each tin and fill with baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the paper and beans. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the pastry is pale golden. Trim the excess pastry. 2 Turn the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Put the oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the courgettes and cook until golden. Cool. Divide the watercress and ham among the pastry cases. 3 Whisk the eggs and cream in a bowl. Season. Divide among the pastry cases, filling almost to the top. Arrange the courgettes on top, then dot over the ricotta. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until just set. Cool slightly, release from the tins and serve with extra watercress. Each quiche contains Energy

Top tip

If you don’t have an icecream maker, transfer the basic ice-cream mixture to a freezerproof container and freeze for 4-5 hours, mixing every hour to break up the ice crystals. Fold through the concrete and chocolate spread, or mint thins and pistachios, on the final mix.

Serves 10 Takes 50 mins, plus chilling and freezing Cost per serve 70p 400ml whole milk 3 tbsp liquid glucose 1 vanilla pod, halved, seeds scraped out 10 large egg yolks 100g golden caster sugar 300ml whipping cream 3 ripe bananas, whizzed in a blender until smooth 2 tbsp chocolate spread For the concrete chunks 50g each caster sugar, toasted pecans, broken Daim bar and chocolate chip cookie chunks

1 In a pan set over a low heat, bring the milk, liquid glucose, vanilla pod and seeds to a simmer. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool a little. Discard the vanilla pod. 2 Meanwhile, put the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.

3 To make the custard, pour the milk mixture over the egg mixture and whisk until combined. Transfer to a clean pan and put on a low heat, stirring until thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Pour into a bowl, cover with clingfilm and chill for 1-2 hours, until cold. 4 To make the concrete, melt the sugar in a dry frying pan over a low heat until pale golden. Add the pecans and swirl the pan to coat in the caramel. Pour the mixture onto a sheet of nonstick baking paper and leave to set. Roughly chop; set aside until needed. 5 Pour the cream into a bowl and whip into soft peaks. Fold into the cooled custard, followed by the blended bananas with a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture into an ice-cream maker and churn for 20 minutes, or until softly whipped. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, see our Top tip (left). 6 Add the pecan brittle, Daim and cookie chunks to the ice-cream maker and churn for 1 minute. Swirl through the chocolate spread.

B OT T LE B A N K FIND YOUR FAVOURITE WINE MORE E A SILY WITH THE REDESIGNED OWN - L ABEL BOT TLES, SAYS JAMES DAVIS MW The Master of Wine (MW) qualification is regarded in the wine industry as one of the highest standards of professional knowledge. There are fewer than 330 MWs in the world, so Tesco is very proud to have James working on its wine team.

NEWL O OK RANGE

Y

ou may notice some changes to your go-to wines in store this month. We have been hard at work giving them a fresh new look. Our own-label Vineyard and Simply ranges have been repackaged and are now all labelled ‘Tesco’ to make the collection easier to navigate. Here’s my pick of the newly launched range.

With sweet, fruity flavours of peach, sun-ripened strawberries, succulent pears and pineapple, White Zinfandel Rosé, £4·50, tastes like summer. It’s surprisingly good paired with curry dishes, and great with cake, too.

Hailing from the sun-drenched vineyards of Australia, Chardonnay, £3·95, is fresh and fruity, with hints of nectarine and melon. Team with the Hawaiian chicken with mango and avocado slaw (p66). Fruity and medium bodied, Malbec, £4·50, from Mendoza, Argentina, is a wonderfully heady mix of dark bramble fruit aromas with plum and blueberry flavours. It’s the perfect match for steak or barbecued meats.

Sales of Rioja in the UK are growing rapidly and Rioja Reserva, £6·50, is a great example of this wine. With aromas of raspberry and vanilla, plus smoky black-fruit flavours, it’s an excellent accompaniment to meaty or tomato-based dishes.

From northern Italy, this crowd-pleasing Pinot Grigio, £4·50, is an easydrinking, fresh and zippy number with hints of lime, peach and apricot. Try it with creamy pasta dishes, such as the White spaghetti bolognese (p64).

This refreshing and elegant Sauvignon Blanc, £6, is from the beautiful Loire Valley in France. Crisp and dry, it has complex flavours and a bright, citrus taste. It’s delicious paired with grilled fish, chicken or cheese dishes.

BEST BURGER EVER Serves 4 Takes 1 hr, plus pickling Cost per serve £4·27 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 6 x thyme sprigs, leaves picked and chopped 600g beef mince (minimum 15% fat) 1 egg yolk 1½ tsp English mustard, plus extra for spreading 50g Parmesan, finely grated 4 rashers smoked streaky bacon 4 thin slices mature Cheddar 4 brioche burger buns, cut in half 6 iceberg lettuce leaves, chopped 1 beef tomato, sliced into 8 4 tsp tomato ketchup For the pickled cucumber ½ cucumber, thinly sliced 50ml white wine vinegar 2 tsp caster sugar ½ tsp mustard seeds For the coleslaw ¼ white cabbage, sliced ½ carrot, grated ¼ onion, finely chopped ½ tbsp mayonnaise 1 tbsp crème fraîche A few chives, chopped

1 To make the pickled cucumber, put the sliced cucumber in a bowl. Sprinkle with ¼ tsp salt, toss to combine and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse and squeeze out any excess water. Meanwhile, heat the vinegar, sugar and mustard seeds in a small pan for 2-3 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and pour over the cucumber. Leave for at least 15 minutes, or overnight, if possible. Store the pickle in a lidded container in 50

the fridge until ready to use (it will keep for up to 1 week). 2 To make the coleslaw, mix the cabbage, carrot and onion in a bowl. Stir through the mayonnaise, crème fraîche and chopped chives. Season to taste, then cover and set aside in the fridge while you make the burger. 3 In a bowl, combine the onion, garlic, thyme and beef mince with the egg yolk, mustard, Parmesan and a little seasoning. Mix thoroughly, then form into 4 thick patties (just smaller than the diameter of the bun). 4 Preheat the barbecue to medium-high and cook the bacon for 2 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden. Remove and set aside. 5 Cook the burgers for 5 minutes on one side, until golden. Turn them over, put the cheese on top and close the barbecue lid (or cover with a metal container if your barbecue doesn’t have a lid) to help the cheese melt. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the burgers are cooked through. 6 Meanwhile, toast the cut sides of the brioche bun halves on the barbecue bars. Put the bottom bun halves on a board, top each with lettuce, tomato, a beef patty, a slice of bacon and a portion each of pickled cucumber and coleslaw. Spread the ketchup and mustard onto the top bun halves, then add to the top of the burger stack. Put a skewer through the top of the burger to hold it all together when serving.

BRIOCHE These buttery buns work brilliantly, as they let the meaty flavour dominate each bite, but add a layer of sweetness. 

KETCHUP AND MUSTARD Tangy ketchup and fiery mustard aren’t just supporting actors, they play a major role. Spread a thin layer of each onto the bun to bring the whole burger to life. COLESLAW The fresh cabbage and carrot provide all-important bite. PICKLED CUCUMBER You need something cool and sharp to contrast all the strong flavours, and pickled cucumber is just the thing. BACON Crispy streaky bacon gives crunch to each bite and its smoky flavour works well with the meaty patty. CHEDDAR Sharp and nutty, mature Cheddar complements the bacon perfectly. TOP-QUALITY BEEF MINCE The best mince has a good fat content – 15% is just enough to keep the burger juicy, but not so much that it will drip out and create flames. Grated Parmesan enhances the flavour even further. LETTUCE AND TOMATO They’re burger staples for a reason – iceberg lettuce is crisp and crunchy, while tomato is deliciously juicy.

Did you know..? From infancy through to old age, milk’s calcium content does a great job at keeping bones strong and healthy. It’s also high in protein, making it good muscle fuel, too. In fact, recent research suggests it might be worth including whole milk in your diet, because although it’s higher in fat and calories than semi-skimmed, it retains more heart-healthy vitamins. What’s more, when you buy your milk at Tesco with Fair for Farmers Guarantee, you’ll be helping to support British dairy farmers who are paid an independently verified fair price per litre – win-win!

RECIPES JENNIFER JOYCE PHOTOGRAPHY TOBY SCOTT FOOD STYLING SAL HENLEY PROP STYLING OLIVIA WARDLE

Serves 4 Takes 1 hr, plus marinating Cost per serve £2·18

1 large whole chicken For the marinade 1 tsp sriracha 1 tbsp clear honey 125ml pineapple juice 1 lime, juiced, plus extra halves, griddled, to serve 75ml reduced-salt soy sauce 1 tbsp grated ginger 2 garlic cloves, crushed For the slaw ¼ Savoy cabbage, shredded 1 mango, peeled, stoned and flesh chopped 1 avocado, peeled, stoned and flesh chopped 3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped 1 tbsp desiccated coconut 2 tbsp chopped roasted peanuts ½ tbsp sesame seeds For the dressing 2 tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce 1 lemon, juiced 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted 1 tbsp sesame oil

1 Spatchcock the chicken by cutting down either side of the backbone with a pair of scissors. Remove the spine and discard (or reserve for making stock). Turn breast-side up and flatten the chicken by pressing down with the heel of your hand. Put in a large sealable food bag or shallow dish. 2 To make the marinade, combine the sriracha, honey, pineapple juice, lime juice, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in

a small bowl. Pour over the chicken and seal the bag or cover the dish with clingfilm. Chill for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight to let the flavours infuse. One hour before cooking, remove the chicken from the fridge and bring to room temperature. 3 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Transfer the chicken and marinade to a large, shallow baking dish. Roast for 40 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and the meat is cooked through with no pink meat showing. Alternatively, preheat the barbecue and cook the chicken over an indirect, low heat with the lid on for 40-50 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat showing. 4 Meanwhile, prepare the slaw. Put the cabbage, mango, avocado, spring onions, coconut and peanuts in a bowl. 5 To make the dressing for the slaw, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil in a small jug. Pour it over the slaw mixture and toss to combine, then scatter over the ½ tbsp sesame seeds. 6 Joint and slice the chicken and serve with the slaw and the extra griddled lime halves.

ow summer’s here, you may be looking to make a healthy change to your routine. Mornings are a great place to start, with a drink that’s packed with goodness and takes minutes to prepare – the smoothie. You can follow a recipe or make it up as you go along. For ideas, check out Alpro’s Smoothie Inspiration tool at tesco.com/Alpro-Smoothie, which pairs Alpro’s plant-based range with the best ingredients. Give your smoothie a taste of the tropics with Alpro Coconut Original, £1·80/1ltr (18p/100ml); keep it simple with Alpro Almond Unsweetened, £1·80/1ltr (18p/100ml); or choose Alpro Plain with Almond or Plain with Coconut, £1·80/500g (36p/100g), Big Pot soya alternative to yogurt for a thicker smoothie. Next, add your fruit or veg and experiment with different flavours – sweeten with banana, throw in spinach for a smooth finish, or try chicory for a subtle bite. Then power your smoothie up with hearty oats, go herbal with fresh mint, or add a sprinkling of flaked almonds. Try one of these three tasty smoothie options, right, or be inspired at tesco.com/Alpro-Smoothie.

Preheat the oven to gas 2, 150°C, fan 130°C. Line 2 baking trays with kitchen paper. Cut the courgettes lengthways into 1cm-thick strips, then cut across the width to create chips. Discard any that have no skin on them.

Fill a deep pan with enough oil to come a third of the way up the sides; heat on the hob. Mix the flours in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and, working quickly, whisk in the egg white and sparkling water.

To test if the oil is hot enough for frying, drop in a little batter. If it immediately starts to sizzle, it’s ready for cooking. Alternatively, use a cooking thermometer to check that the temperature is somewhere between 170°C and 190°C.

Working in batches, use a slotted spoon to dip a few courgettes in the batter, shake off the excess, and then carefully lower into the hot oil. Fry for 2 minutes, turning until lightly golden and crisp. Remove with the slotted spoon.

Banana and coconut fritters Chop 4 bananas into 5cm chunks. Add 1 tbsp clear honey and 3 tbsp desiccated coconut to the tempura batter. Dip the banana in the batter and fry until crisp and golden.

ith such a wide selection of fitness classes to choose from these days, it can be easy to overlook traditional sport as a way of keeping active, especially if you weren’t a fan at school. But perhaps it’s time to reconsider? Sport, as with all physical activity, has significant benefits for body and mind. In fact, it can help reduce your risk of more than 20 conditions*, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression, and can also improve coordination and concentration. Plus, it’s more accessible than ever and often comes with a big social element to boot. Turn over to get started. 85

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS? ‘The quick movement of the ball helps to improve cardiovascular fitness,’ says Matthew Stanforth, England Table Tennis coach. At a professional level, the ball can travel at 100 miles per hour. ‘It’s a total body sport, but one that uses a surprising number of leg muscles. The game can also sharpen your focus.’ In fact, research has shown that table tennis may play a role in helping people with dementia* by stimulating certain areas of the brain.

IS IT FOR ME? The

light equipment used in table tennis and its noncontact nature make it the perfect sport for pretty much everyone.

WHERE TO PLAY Table tennis clubs are great for structured games or just table hire, so check out your local leisure centre, gym, school or university for options. Alternatively, visit tabletennisengland. co.uk; tabletennisireland. ie; tabletennisscotland. co.uk or tabletennis. wales to find a club near you. Also look out for Ping! (pingengland. co.uk) – a free summer festival, which sees table tennis tables, plus bats and balls, appear in surprising locations across England. Or play at home by transforming a table or desk with a special ‘table top’ set, which includes balls, bats and a net.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS? All that running, dribbling, hitting and tackling with a stick in tow for 70 minutes makes hockey a physically and mentally demanding game. ‘The repeated sprints and constant changes in direction allow you to work on endurance and agility,’ says Olympian and Great Britain hockey international Hannah Macleod. ‘And the low body position during play means you’re improving your stability, while working your core muscles and upper legs.’ Plus, there are plenty of tactics involved to keep your mind sharp.

IS IT FOR ME? If you like the idea of covering a large pitch and working together as a team while using your brain, then hockey could be for you. WHERE TO PLAY Enter your

postcode at Play Hockey via greatbritainhockey.co.uk to find your nearest club and the options on offer. If you’re not looking to compete or commit, many clubs run hockey nights on a pay-and-play basis, or offer social memberships. Or try Back to Hockey for informal, low-cost sessions that cover all the basics. From 20 August to 11 September, clubs will also be opening their doors (mostly for free) as part of HockeyFest.

How can I keep my hair colour vibrant?

H A I R G U R U DA N I E L G A LV I N J R G I V E S H I S E X P E R T A DV I C E O N K E E P I N G YO U R L O C K S H E A LT H Y A N D G O R G E O U S L O O K I N G OV E R S U M M E R

a

Use colourfriendly products to lock in the colour. Wash your hair in warm water rather than hot – although cold is actually best (if you can stand it!) as it’s gentler on colour.

How should I wash my hair to keep it healthy?

q

a

People tend to wash their hair more in summer, so it’s important to use mild, daily shampoos containing gentle cleansing agents. If you have a sensitive scalp or coloured hair, I’d advise avoiding shampoos with sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), as this can strip the scalp of natural oils and accelerate colour fading. WE LOVE Ogx Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo, £7

Should I get my hair cut more frequently in the summer months?

q

a

While it isn’t essential, I recommend getting your ends trimmed every 6-12 weeks all year round. This is because split ends will develop, no matter how much you care for your hair. A tidy-up keeps them in check and creates a thicker-textured mane. Finer hair tends to break more quickly, so if your hair is fine, I would get it trimmed every six weeks, if you can afford it. For people who don’t want to lose length, don’t forget that a trim need only mean the tiniest bit off the ends.

88

WE LOVE John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Shampoo, £5·89; Creightons Sunshine Blonde Shampoo, £1; Touch of Silver Daily Nourish Conditioner, £4

What’s the best way to dry hair without damaging it?

q

a

It helps to remove as much moisture as possible from your hair before applying direct heat, so gently blot and squeeze it with a towel first. Apply a heat-protection spray before rough-drying with a hairdryer, holding it a few inches away from hair to avoid burning – your hair doesn’t feel pain, and can’t warn you against damage, so treat it with extra TLC. When almost dry, style with your hairdryer but keep this to a minimum in order to keep hair healthy. Finally, use a good hairspray with essential oils to lock in moisture.

skin tone looks quite yellow all over, please adjust.

How can you beat frizz when it’s humid?

a

For curly hair, take a pennysized amount of conditioner in your hands and rub together with a tiny bit of water. Gently scrunch through the mid-lengths and ends, then leave to set. This keeps frizz at bay and separates curls. Also apply an anti-frizz serum before blow-drying. To give you that last little bit of help, finish with a good hairspray – this will help keep your style in place and keep stray hairs at bay. Serum is invaluable for straight hair, too, to help reduce flyaways.

WE LOVE Ogx Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum, £7

What’s best for preventing sun damage to my hair?

q

q

a

I recommend applying a colourprotect conditioner with UV filters once or twice a week if you’re lounging around in the sun or swimming. The conditioner prevents hair drying out and aids absorption of the product’s ingredients as heat from the sun opens the hair shaft. The conditioner benefits all hair types, but is particularly good for afro hair, which can dry out quickly in the sun.

While straight hair is generally easier to manage, it can fall victim to looking limp and wispy over the course of a hot, humid day. A blow-dry will give hair the heat injection necessary to keep it in place and add extra volume. My top tip would be to lift your hair away from your head with a bristle brush as you dry it, with the hairdryer following the brush from root to tip – it takes practice! Finish with a spritz of nourishing hairspray both at the roots and ends to help maintain the shape.

What’s your ultimate styling tip for creating sleek, straight hair? WORDS JO WOODERSON PHOTOGRAPHY IAN SKELTON, CAMERA PRESS

I recommend applying a mask after shampooing once a week in summer. If your hair is dry or overprocessed, leave the mask on for 30 minutes. Sit in the bath, if possible, as steam helps the moisture to really sink in. Or wrap hair in a hot towel, which will also help the mask absorb more effectively.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

By the time you’ve added on insurance, car hire and spending money, your holiday invariably ends up costing more than you intended. Read on to discover how to trim costs, without cutting back on the fun...

Research travel insurance thoroughly before you buy, making sure you have enough cover for all your valuables. Be mindful of the excess charges (the amount you’re required to pay towards a claim on your policy) as doing so could save you money in the long run. If you’re planning an adventure or activity holiday, make sure your insurance covers ‘extreme’ activities. SARAH’S TIP IF YOU B U Y YOU R

HEALTH COVER An EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) entitles you to free or low-cost medical care within the EU, as well as Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. An EHIC isn’t the same as travel insurance, so make sure you’re covered by a separate policy in case, say, you need to be flown back to the UK. In some countries, you’ll most likely have to pay the doctor or dentist directly, but you can apply for a refund. SARAH’S TIP I T ’ S F R E E TO A P P LY F O R A N E H I C V I A T H E

CAR HIRE

Book your hire car in advance to get the best deal, but check the price of extras, such as a sat nav, child seat, roof rack or adding a second driver, as these additions can cost from a few pounds to almost £100. SARAH’S TIP ALWAYS R E AD TH E SMALL PRINT AS SO M E CAR H IR E

CAR HIRE EXCESS When hiring a car, there is often a high excess (which can be several hundred pounds) that is payable if you’re involved in an accident (even a minor scrape) or if the car is damaged in any way. Always check the condition of the hire car when you pick it up and take photos to avoid being charged for wear and tear you aren’t responsible for.

C ash s m art CREDIT CARDS Credit (or debit) cards may offer protection if you buy something and there’s a problem, but they can be an expensive way of paying for meals or shopping while you’re abroad. That’s because you’re likely to get a poor rate of exchange, plus you often have to pay transaction charges.

MOBILE CHARGES

Although the cost of using your mobile in the EU came down at the end of April, it’s still more expensive (with most networks) than using your phone here. There’s a cap limiting the bill to €50 (around £38), but it only applies in the EU and, if you’ve bought a data package and opted out of having this cap, it won’t apply to you.

PARK AND RIDE

You can get a much better deal on foreign currency if you order it in advance. Some providers will let you order online and pick up at the airport, while other companies offer a home-delivery service.

Book your airport parking early and shop around for the best deal on comparison websites. Check out websites that list properties where you can park, you may find that a taxi there and back is cheaper.
