Book club: Falling Cloudberries

Falling Cloudberries is beautiful, a gorgeous gem of a book by Tessa Kiros filled with dishes as visually stunning as they are delicious. Within, favourite feasts are interlaced with tales of tradition and sweet family anecdotes. This is a collection of recipes that she loves, and it's easy to see why.

With such inspired dreams of a shared table close to hand, today's lunch began with the simple and familiar flavours of chicken, oregano and lemon, the bird's juicy flesh and crisp skin brightened by the refreshingly tart citrus and the rich, earthy herbs.

It was accompanied by a chickpea, feta and coriander salad, filled with the freshness of green summer herbs, the creaminess of chickpeas and feta, and some chilli for a little extra kick.

To finish, the most luxurious lemon ice cream ever encountered. Made simply from cream, sugar, lemon and sage it was smooth beyond compare. The richness was cut nicely by the zest of lemon, and the sage a welcome variation on this all-time classic treat.

A perfect Sunday lunch.
