@alexandradudley Took a drive to the very charming village of Broadway. Went for a ‘wild’ theme. Leafy green tones paired with @oka classic rattan. Packed a picnic of goats cheese and fig chutney baguettes and a fresh and simple shredded courgette, dill and sunflower seed salad. We may have even made a friend along the way... 🦔

@alexandradudley A very easy DINNER PARTY DISH and a wonderful one for an impromptu summer gathering. I love to serve up a big Greek salad for everyone to dig into as a starter. I add a mix of dried and fresh mint to mine as well as dried oregano. Usually I’ll sub raw onion for black olives (I’m not a raw onion fan) but the key is to have good tomatoes and good olive oil. My fave is @belazu_co . Simple, satisfying and very delicious.

@alexandradudley A perfect end to a very busy week. One supper club, one broken freezer, filming for an exciting project, feast cooking for @cookforsyria x @clerkenwellboyec1 @sohofarmhouse Food Summit and a couple of panels too. Such a glorious treat to spend the evening @babingtonhouse with @cointreau for their #artofthemix summer screening of The Great Gatsby. Thank you for having me and thank you @henriettainman @mels_place_east for being the best kitchen team! Cheersing a couple of these excellent margaritas to a lazy Sunday! Ps. Swipe for some of the dishes we cooked (food snaps by the very talented @clerkenwellboyec1)

@alexandradudley Requests for my cherry vodka lime tonics have been high for this weekend. Cherries are in high season and beautifully sweet. I like to use @schweppesgb tonic and a good dose of lemon for a bit of zing. Recipe below (makes 12)
500g fresh pitted cherries 
150ml water
4 tbsp sugar
250ml fresh lime juice
250ml vodka
60ml amaretto (optional)
1litre @schweppesgb tonic water for topping
crushes ice to serve
lime wedges/ cherries to serve - place your cherries, water and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat until the cherries are soft (about 8 mins). Allow to cool slightly.
- Pour into a blender until pureed.
- Strain through a sieve to remove any excess pulp and keep cherry liquid in jug. - Add the lime juice, vodka and amaretto. Stir. - Fill glasses with ice and pour in cherry mix to about 3/4 from the rim. - Top with chilled @schweppesgb tonic water for the #UltimateMixer and garnish with a cherry or lime wedge. - Enjoy.

@alexandradudley Cooked a big lunch party on the weekend for my family. Threw a linen tablecloth on the table under the vines, picked flowers from the garden and made some very good cherry, vodka lime tonics with @schweppesgb tonic water. Served up griddled courgettes from the garden, a simple cucumber salad, slow roasted beetroot with yogurt and mint and my favourite roasted romano pepper,  tomato, mozzarella toasts with a pine nut basil oil. Needless to say I was popular over the weekend!

@alexandradudley My latest recipe for @townandcountryuk is up! Rainbow roast tomato and mozzarella salad with basil and pine-nut oil. An elevated twist on the classic tomato mozzarella it’s a great one for summer lunches. Roast your toms and make the oil ahead of time and tear over mozzarella just before serving!

@alexandradudley SHOPPING PACKAGE FREE.
The way we used to! I took a trip to @waitroseandpartners Oxford to learn a little more about their new ‘unpackaged’ initiative offering and encouraging their customers to shop package free. A whole range of fruit, veggies, dry goods and house good items are available to buy without plastic or packaging. Bring your own container fill and refill! Seeing a big supermarket like this actually make an effort to reduce its packaging is INCREDIBLE. I am so happy to hear that this is something @waitroseandpartners will be rolling out to new stores. One thing I’ll say (as I know many of you will want to know when it’s coming to your local store) is that these things take time and a huge amount of work is involved. The problem of over consumption of packaging hasn’t been fixed but this is a real start and I think that deserves a round of applause. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 WELL DONE Waitrose! (Ps. More in my plastic free stories)

@alexandradudley This weeks DINNER PARTY DISH. Crudités!! There is nothing better than a crop of summer veg to crunch on. I’m prepping for a little lunch party today and this is the kind of thing I’ll prep ahead of guests arriving. A good dip is key. My favourites are my white bean herb dip (on the site), spiced carrot dip (in my book), artichokus (also in my book) or something really simple and yogurty. This one is just - 400ml Greek yogurt mixed with - 1 grated and squeezed cucumber
- 60g finely chopped pistachios (I whizzed them up in a food processor
- 1tbsp dried mint
- Good handful fresh chopped mint
- a pinch of ground coriander - a good pinch of salt.

@alexandradudley Back in five. Just in the veg garden. Truthfully I’m in London 😉 but it’s my dream to have my own veg patch. In the mean time I make the most of my herbs and pot plants (very good strawberries this year) and make the effort to shop seasonally, locally grown where possible and package free wherever I can. Im lucky to live next to a fantastic green grocer but when I’m out and about or cooking elsewhere I love @abelandcole @oddboxldn (who use wonky, otherwise forgotten veggies) @planetorganic and @daylesfordfarm. More and more places are offering package free options too which is great news! I’m taking over the @daylesfordfarm Instagram account today to show a little bit more about how I shop! Follow along for a #plasticfree shop and some seasonal recipes. Xx

@alexandradudley Celebrated nine years with @thefreddiehall over the weekend with supper @spring_ldn . The most beautiful tomatoes, prawns, river trout and sparkling wine from Wiltshire grown grapes. One of my favourite restaurants in London. Thank you @skyegyngell and the rest of the @spring_ldn team for making it a wonderful evening. Here’s me posing with the @somersethouse fountains 😁.

@alexandradudley Took our picnic to the beautiful city of Bath on a very hot day. Went for gorgeous golden and moroccan inspired tones and cooled down with fresh salads and bowls of fresh cherries.

@alexandradudley LOVE FOR HAND ME DOWNS.
Showing off my mummas hydrangeas in her old dress. My mother bought this dress when she was 22 and gave it to me when I was 27 (anyone who knows her will know she could still pull it off). A lot of my clothes were once my mothers, some were once my friends’. A lot are vintage or second hand and more recently I’ve even borrowed them with the help of @hurr which is brilliant! The brutal reality of the damage that fast fashion has on our planet is something none of us should be ignoring. But fashion doesn’t have to be fast! - Love hand me downs. Swap clothes with friends, or raid your mothers wardrobe 😉
- Seek out sustainable brands. Get to know the story and ask #whomademyclothes - When you do buy, do so with a conscience, question whether you really need it? Do you absolutely love it?
- I have a rule to never buy clothes that make you feel average. Why would anyone want to feel average?

@alexandradudley My latest recipe for @townandcountryuk is up. Cherry ripple and amaretto ice cream. I like to serve it with amaretto steeped cherries and few crushed amaretti biscuits. Makes for a delicious summer pudding and is one of my favourite kind of recipes in that it looks impressive but is incredibly simple. No ice cream maker or elbow grease required. Recipe in stories or via @townandcountryuk x
