Turbot charged: Skye Gyngell has created a special menu for a series of supper clubs

Petersham in the evening is a truly magical place to be at this time of year, when the sun doesn't set until late in the evening; there is a sense of mystery about it – a misty glow in the air. The nursery in particular is looking spectacular, with glorious displays of flowers – roses, poppies, dahlias and purple-headed scabiosas – while the herbs in our kitchen garden are abundant and at their best, too, ready to be picked and used at will. This summer we have been hosting a handful of supper clubs – and here I've recreated what we cooked on one of those special nights.

Catch of the day: Fresh ways to enjoy British sardines

For Stefan Glinski, in the small Cornish fishing village of Newlyn, nightfall means one thing: sardines. Every day, as families around the country settle down to dinner, he heads out to work, braving wind, rain and waves in his 70-ton 44ft boat. "I've gone out in full-blown gales," he says. "The only time I stop is when I can't stand up."

Better off red: Skye Gyngell's favourite summer raspberry recipes

While I was growing up in Australia, summers could be fierce, with endless days spent on the beach followed by long, restless nights. English summers are gentler, sweeter, and the produce that arrives during these months is glorious – nothing more so than raspberries. Tart yet sweet, they have a beautiful texture, delicacy and softness. My very favourite variety are tulameen, which have a lovely mellow flavour and are around during late summer.

Cornish pasty joins Europe's protected list

Cornish pasties, the packed lunches that came into their own as meals for tin and copper miners in the 17th century, can now only be made in Cornwall.
