Celebrate summertime by making the most of the abundant local summer produce. The quintessential Kentish fruit – cherries – can be found across the county right now.

Why not try an irresistible cruffin filled with creme patisserie topped with a rich cherry compote from Gilda Bakery nr Canterbury?

Or fill your home with a glorious rainbow of seasonal and sustainable flowers from Blooming Green, open every Saturday for Pick Your Own until the end of October. Produced in Kent have curated a collection of easy, tasty recipes from local producers using the best of the season. 

In this recipe from The Corner House the sweet flavours of the colourful tomatoes are paired in a dish with a light and creamy goat's curd, while the dressing elevates the flavours to new heights.
