There are loads of reasons to bring the August edition of Easy Food into your kitchen. We’ve narrowed it down to the 10 most delicious.

You won’t miss out on any of the barbecue fun with these gorgeous gluten-free options.
3. Pasta, personalised
We know lots of our readers are cooking for kids as well as adults, so we’ve put together some kid-friendly pasta dinners that can be quickly tweaked into more interesting grown-up options.
4. Get bready
Food stylist Shannon Peare has been filling our office with the tantalising smell of freshly baked breads, and has all the info you need to get baking at home.

Our flavoursome Mediterranean-inspired mains and sides (plus a sneaky cocktail!) just beg to be enjoyed in the sunshine.
