With winter coming to an end at the bottom end of the globe, it was time to make the most of the lemon and lime crop, so I wrote some zingy lemon and lime recipes for the October issue of marie claire magazine.

marie claire lemons and limes

I spent a fair bit of time getting the amount of lime just right for the delicious lime and vanilla panna cotta and then a friend suggested a twist on a Portugese tart – so the Portuguese lemon tart was born! There’s also a fabulous recipe for light as a feather lemon and lime souffles and finally a healthy breakfast dish of quinoa with mango and lime. For all these recipes you’ll need to buy the October issue of marie claire, but if you’ve got a lime hanging around give this Vietnamese pork meatball recipe a try.
