Summer's on its way, which means it must be time for a festival. All that hanging out in tents and rolling in mud is guaranteed to get the kids enthused.

Klaxons are in the lobby, Queens of Noize are waiting patiently in the front row; oh look, there's Mark Ronson in the bar, hanging out with Kaiser Chiefs. And, um, Kimberley Stewart (but let's forget about her). If anyone here isn't on the guest list, I'd like to personally congratulate them on being able to get in, because to call MGMT at the ICA a hot ticket would be the understatement of the year.

To be honest, this is a bit of a cheat from Claudia Roden. I first discovered her cooking 15 years ago and she is responsible for my gaining two stone in weight as I absolutely love her Middle Eastern recipes. This recipe (from The New Book of Middle Eastern Food) is one I have been cooking for years and I've added a light Indian side salad, which you can prepare either instead of or with rice, as it's a recipe I particularly enjoy at lunchtime. It's also brilliant for entertaining as there's virtually no preparation beyond shopping, and the cooking takes under five minutes.
