Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."

Baguette recipes

These baguette recipes are picture-perfect and picnic ready, bursting with fillings like slow-cooked beef tongue, poached egg and grilled asparagus and classic leg ham and cheese.

  • Preheat oven to 220C and line a roasting pan with baking paper. Add chicken, olive oil, oregano, garlic, chipotle and lime juice to pan, season to taste and mix to coat and combine. Turn chicken skin-side up and roast until browned and cooked through (15-20 minutes; juices should run clear when thighs are pierced with a skewer).

Stir in rice to coat in oil, then stir in stock and 60ml water, season to taste, bring to the boil and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to low and cook without uncovering for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, stand covered for 5 minutes, then stir in coriander, tomatillo, green parts of spring onion and lime juice, and season to taste. Divide Mexican green rice among bowls, top with chipotle chicken, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, scatter with feta and coriander, and serve with lime halves.
