Seasonal Cooking | Don’t Miss these LATE SUMMER Beauties | Food for Late Summer

Food for the last days of Summer

As we enjoy the final month of Summer, often the hottest month, foods are still light and cooling. Gradually over the month, as signs of Autumn appear, the foods gain a little depth. We don’t want to think yet about the end of Summer, and that it means the approaching Winter. Spicy Indian food is great in Late Summer – the heat of the dishes is cooling to the system, and there are many cooling drinks, raitas and simply prepared foods. Rasams and Sambars abound.

Seasonal Cooking | Easy Cold Soups in Summer

Use the juicer to produce great cold soups.

The hot weather continues in Adelaide with stunning sunrises and sunsets. Cold soups are perfect, and I have stumbled across a great way to prepare them quickly and easily.

Fundamental to my method is the use of a cold press juicer. It juices not only without heat from whirring blades, but also does not aerate and foam the juice like other types of juicers can do. You can use a centrifugal juicer (the usual type) but let the juice sit for a while to lose some of its aeration.

You can find more Cold Soups here and here. Or browse all of our Summer recipes here and here.
