The August issue of TASTE has landed!

Cheese like it

Abigail Donnelly brings back a decadent classic with the latest cover, this famous mac ‘n’ cheese. It’s certainly something to achieve this month! In our cheesiest feature yet, expect creamy, crumbly, melty stars in everything from mac ‘n’ cheese to Maasdam fisherman’s pie.

Grain food

Phillippa Cheifitz takes us through her best-ever grains and pulses. Get pot of lentils or barley on the go and you’ll have the ultimate versatile base for hearty home-cooked suppers – plus a grain bowl for tomorrow’s lunch. She turns the familiar into the phenomenal with options including millet risotto and spicy shortrib with samp and beans.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Discover more new ways with weeknight dinners: a pack of free-range chicken in your fridge or freezer means your week-night dinner is sorted. Whether your mouth is watering for a Szechuan streetfood classic or a molten Kiev remniscent of seventies dinner parties, you can rest assured that you’re rustling up a winner.

Delicious dreams are made of these

There are a number of non-negotiable items in your winter survival kit, including malva pudding, buttermilk rusks and a good roast dinner. Abi Donnelly has added her own special twist to these iconic cold-weather dishes, which are guaranteed to intrigue. Try a sweet potato malva pudding with nut brittle, a rusk pudding featuring meringue, raspberry jam and zesty Clemengold, and a new spin on lasagne and stuffed lamb leg and parsnips cooked like chips!
