Ed’s Recipes from Nom Nom Nom

Introducing guest editor Ed, with his excellent recipes from our grand day out at Nom Nom Nom: Courgette Carpaccio Courgettes A lemon Olive oil Salt Pepper These courgettes were chosen for the main to help cut through some of the heaviness of the eggs. They are light, refreshing and add a really cool bright green colour. Start with a courgette and a veg peeler (or mandolin). Keep peeling the same spot on the courgette until you start getting fairly wide,…
