We had a couple of friends over for Sunday lunch, last Sunday when the weather was actually nice, and decided that we were filled enough with the joys of spring to have a spring themed lunch.
We had Ottolenghi's stuffed onions to start, then Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's macaroni and peas with tomato, mozzarella and basil salad, and Delia's Eton mess to finish. Am slightly uncomfortable about plagiarising recipes but you can get to all of them through the links.

Tomato and mozzarella salad - like most Italian food is as good as the quality of its ingredients. We had tasty tomatoes so it was delicious.

Overall verdict: thought this meal worked well, was well balanced, and I might make it again for (different) guests.
