Diet Cig: Swear I’m Good at This Album Review The origin story of Diet Cig centers around an interaction in which guitarist Alex Luciano interrupted drummer Noah Bowman during a show to ask for a lighter. This anecdote is an odd way to introduce your band. It suggests a double standard that it’s okay for women to interrupt men while they’re playing but you know if the tables were turned Twitter would be all up in arms. Nevertheless, the pair hit it off and began making music together in their then-hometown of New Paltz, NY. This led to 2015’s Over Easy EP, five jangly tracks about young adult anxieties and scene politics. It was an inoffensive introduction that spawned relentless touring, a bubbly social media presence, and Luciano’s trademark high kick off the bass drum.
Asparagus Feuilletés I once asked my friend Sudhir Dhanani, who isn't English himself but imports exotic fruits and vegetables from around the world, did he agree? Quite positively, yes! American is good, Peruvian even better, but English wins by a mile. Once called 'sparrow-grass', but now affectionately known in the trade as simply 'grass', asparagus has a painfully short season in England – just two months, May and June. So we all need to be on full asparagus alert and make absolutely sure we feast appropriately and not let the season whiz by. Just steam it and pour melted butter over, or some vinaigrette, or just good olive oil with a squeeze of lemon.

Spanish Chicken with Butter Beans, Chorizo and Tomatoes - Spanish This recipe comes from our former Executive Chef, Lucy Crabb, at the football club, and it's been served both at large banquets and in the restaurant to great acclaim. A rocket and chicory salad is a good accompaniment. Serves 4 This recipe is from The Delia Collection: Chicken First of all, begin by cooking the butter beans. Thai Fish Cakes with Sesame and Lime Dipping Sauce To make the fishcakes you first of all need to put the lemon grass, garlic, ginger, coriander leaves, kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, chilli and red pepper into a food processor, then turn the motor on and blend everything fairly finely. After that add the chunks of fish, process again briefly until the fish is blended in, then finally pour in the coconut powder (click here for stockist information) through the feeder tube. Switch on the motor again but be careful at this stage not to overprocess – all you need to do is briefly blend it all for 2-3 seconds. Then tip the mixture into a bowl, add some seasoning and shape the fishcakes into 24 fairly small, thin, flattish, round shapes about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. If you like you can make them ahead to this stage, but spread them out in a single layer, cover with clingfilm and keep them in the refrigerator till needed.
Chargrilled tuna on sautéed spinach with a piquant tomato dressing Ingredients For the piquant tomato dressing 2 tbsp olive oil 1 stick chopped celery American Chef's Salad - American Return to listing A chef's salad is so named because it is supposed to be an innovative way of using whatever you happen to have handy to create a main-course salad. Ham, salami, chicken, turkey or any cold meat could be used for this one; similarly any kind of cheese or salad vegetable. This happens to be one of my favourite combinations, but once you get the gist of it I'm sure you'll have lots of other ideas. Serves 6-8 as a main course This recipe is taken from Delia's How to Cook Book Two
