"Summer is a special time for cooks, a dazzling time when fresh ingredients present themselves in rapid succession, some of them so briefly that we need to snap them up to enjoy them at their best," Delia Smith writes in the introduction to her now classic Summer Collection. No-one can deny that we live in a privileged age when we can shop all round the world for anything at any time of the year, but that should never eclipse the joy of being able to eat something grown close to home when it's at its peak. Asparagus, runner beans, baby carrots and strawberries all make an appearance in this book, all enhanced by Delia with tastes from California, Italy, Greece and the East. The cooking techniques range from grilling and roasting vegetables to making homemade ice cream. Recipes include Salmon Steaks with Avocado and Crème Fraîche to Sautéed Asparagus with Eggs and Parmesan. Desserts, breads and baking tips complete the collection. --Amanda James

The name was highly appropriate, as the soap was designed to look like a green lawn studded with Easter eggs. The eggs came in all colours and sizes, and looked simply stunning on top of the circular...
Advantages: Lovely sweet tasting treat Disadvantages: Foil packaging sometimes sticks
...It's easter Sunday and it's the time of the year when Cadburys Creme Eggs come out to play. These little eggs have been around for as long as i can remember but are only sold certain months of the year.
Creme eggs are basically an egg shaped chocolate with a fondant centre. Costing around 40pence each or 3 for £1 in a lot of shops, these are around the same price as any other Cadburys...
