Philip Howard brings all the freshness, simplicity, and elegance of the Mediterranean to your table this month. Philip is a wise, skilled, no-nonsense chef, who appreciates the beauty of fresh, seasonal produce simply cooked and beautifully plated.

Let the delight that is a fresh pan-fried sardine melt into and enrichen a fragrant vinaigrette. Avoid the slurry of a lazy ratatouille by following Philip’s gentle steps that will yield evenly cooked, al dente vegetables. Infuse the lightness of fregola with orange & basil, and crown this vibrant dish with a robust fillet of crisp sea bream. This is very much the food of the sun-gods.

Philip will tell you about his creation, below:

this month's playlist

**Next Gen Soul**

Chopped up samples, nostalgia through a palpably different lens and lyrics that afford a vertical glimpse through a formative life of lockdowns, global insecurity and a new generation finding its feet.

Sonically today’s young producers are seemingly as likely to be influenced by James Blake as Erykah Badu, Ashanti or Ray Charles. In fact one core, defining feature of these musicians, is that rather than directly rebel against what has come before, they allow multiple influences to wash through their music at once; creating a rich tapestry of sounds and, notably, vibes.
