Inside the issue: INSEASON Summer 2022
Our Summer edition of INSEASON has arrived! Get out in the garden with our growing guides, enjoy al fresco dining with sensational recipes and have some fun in the kitchen with cooking school ideas. 

“Summer has everything I love to eat: apricots, cherries, raspberries and strawberries. I look forward to all those long summer evenings dining al fresco, with the barbecue loaded with the promise of tender, well-cooked meats and vegetables,” writes Editor Michelle McHugh.

“The choice of what salad to prepare is endless – the garden offers vine-ripened tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers, tasty spring onions and so much more – and in this issue you’ll find recipes for vinaigrettes and dressings that are bursting with flavour.”

Garden Editor Franco Sessa shares his advice for maximising your harvest when growing parsley, eggplant, kūmara and mustard. He also explains the importance of the soil’s PH levels and provides tips for watering over the hot summer months.

It’s time to harvest this season’s cucumbers, mint and apricots, with delicious recipes to make the most of your crop, including summery Cucumber and Prawn Rolls and a showstopping Apricot Meringue Tort.

Whip out the barbecue and enjoy summer entertaining with our sensational dishes, including European and Asian-inspired vegetarian meals, chilli crab, tandoori lamb, and grilled snapper mains, and stunning summer salads that are bursting with flavour.

Delectable, sun-kissed summer fruits star in our sweet treats, including the Barbecued Mango with Passionfruit Yoghurt dessert that features on the cover. Plus, we’ve got cocktails and mocktails to delight the senses and keep you cool.

In Wellness, we explore plant-centred diets for heart health, how to up your vitamin C intake, the link between diet and psoriasis and the essential minerals for bone strength.
