Summer cooking is all about big, bold flavours: from zesty marinades and sweet, light desserts to tangy slaws and smokey, saucy meats. While slapping a few burgers onto a barbecue and dishing out some ice cream could do the trick, why not take your summer dining to the next level? From a tender pulled pork with a crunchy homemade slaw and a buttery roast veg tart that makes the most divine al fresco dinner, to moreish no-bake salted caramel fudge and a stunning tiered cake, these recipes will bring your sunny entertaining to new heights.
