I’m not the biggest fan of summer but I am the biggest fan of summer fruit. I start mourning stone fruit as soon as they disappear from the shelves and I know we are in for a long few apple & citrus laden months. This is a great time of year to really get stuck into summers bounty because there is plenty around, so I rounded up 10 of my favourite recipes with summer fruit. Also, this morning I could feel that first tinge of autumn in the air with an ever-so-slight chill, so we are running out of time here. 

Mango, passion fruit & yoghurt brûlée

Mangoes are at their very best right now and I ate one so perfect the other day I wanted to cry. This is one fruit that doesn’t benefit from cooking and is perfect on its own. I love this brûlée technique with yoghurt and palm sugar that forms a delicious caramel topping but doesn’t really interfere with the integrity of the fruit. The passion fruit takes it to whole new tropical fruit level.
