Beautiful images and recipes. As to Sercial, according to Wiki : “After phylloxera devastated Madeira's vineyards, the grape became more common on the mainland, where it is known as Esgana or Esgana Cão, meaning respectively Strangler or Dog Strangler.” !

Wonderful recipes with the out of this world red tones from those tomatoes and raspberries. Simple magic from the Wizard!

Love, love, love. All the summer foods here. But I will say, my mom (not happy about cooking in the 60's) used to make a coleslaw I couldn't swallow. It was cloyingly sweet with veggie chopped and sold in a bag. So they were a bit dehydrated when she put the business together. Tough and what I will call, icky sweet. Nothing to look forward to. But she loved it. I have tinkered with coleslaw trying to find the recipe for me and here we are - not unlike the trick to your macaroni and cheese, the bath in water sounds like it will make for happy slaw! I'm making your cole slaw tomorrow! Will report back.

I was the kid in junior high who had a tomato in my lunch with a little baggie of salt. I would eat it like my friends ate apples and I didn't care much if the boys thought it was weird. It was wonderful. There's a benefit to being raised by a girl who grew up in the midwest and loved fresh tomatoes from her own plants! Now, I need to think about some tomatoes and cucumbers for salad too!

As you might think, I'm quite inspired to take on some summer dining.
