Oliver Rowe  Chef, Author. My book, Food for All Seasons, published by Faber

A bit early in the season for these but I had to help myself to a few... I’ll give them a go and test them against a later batch - apparently this year is going to be a bumper year for sloes...

Mulberries or murrrdurrr? Looking down at my hands covered in mulberry juice takes me back to my childhood and picking them in my grandma’s garden. Still my favourite fruit, I’m serving them later with mackerel and horseradish.

Shot number one at @stevenjoycephoto’s stunning new studio, @kemblehouse in Forest Hill. Great space, lovely light, fab kitchen - good space to work in, and an honour to get to christen it! Working today on a Christmas shoot for @caffemassarella - crayfish and roast butternut sandwich...

Deep fried duck egg from @ceremonyrestaurant. Truffled mushrooms and polenta. This was a practically regal way to start the day. @wildernesshq #wildernessfestival

This morning a shakshuka saved my life.... @thegoodegg_ for breakfast just now - the last customers in the breakfast queue - now they’re serving their equally delicious looking lunch and dinner menu. @wildernesshq

Five chefs, five courses. All Star Banquet tonight at @wildernesshq... @leetiernan / @blackaxemangal | @merlinlabronjohnson / @portlandrestaurant | @tomos_pp / @brat | @thedairyclapham | @happyendingsldn. This was the second of the five dishes - each delicious - heirloom tomatoes, London stracciatella, raspberries and fermented tomato juice.

Flashback to Summer of 16, and flash forward to next week! Can’t wait for @wildernesshq next week. Really looking forward to some amazing food and some interesting talks. Oh, and probably the odd glass of something very cold... will definitely be checking out @salon_brixton, @thegoodegg_ , @smokestakuk and @zoeadjonyoh, along with so much other good stuff... oh, and the music! Yes. It’s going to be a good weekend.

From this morning - my whole crop of carrots! I found a few had root aphids and the advice I read was to harvest the crop and start again. The problem is the ants... so many of them, and they love a good aphid.. anyway, no biggie, I’m quite pleased with my first time carrot haul, and have pickled them with ginger, lovage and bay warm, cold and aromatic flavours. I was going to put some coriander seed in there too, but forgot! Carrots are such a great canvas for flavour and go with so many things, I nearly got carried away.
Oh, and some of my Wiltshire elderflower fizz on the brew with a few sprigs of lemon verbena in it. This is a must if you still have some cordial kicking around. Soooo good with gin over lots of ice...

Quick visit to Gill Wing Farm in Kent yesterday. Lovely farm in Kent run by some old friends that produces stunning fruit, vegetable, poultry and pork. Might see a couple of shots from my trip pop up in the next couple of days...

Ready for roasting. Flat peaches earlier this week. Honey skilfully applied by my nephew. Top midweek pudding - practically no prep, cooks while you’re eating and totally delicious. .

Oregano harvest... this will be dry in a few days. One bunch there is only 3 or 4 days old and my oregano patch has already started growing back from that haircut, so I may well get another crop before the summer’s out. Anyone passing through East London in the next few weeks and wants a bunch, stop by for tea and pick one up!

Oh yes. @smokestakuk again. Big bold flavours and meat to die for. But the veggie options are amazing too - the miso aubergine stole the show today...
