August is drawing to a close this week, and we can practically taste the pumpkin pies, apple cider doughnuts and roasted Brussels sprouts that are imminently on the horizon.

With the weather (hopefully) cooling down soon, long and languid cooking sessions are ever more possible, but in this final week of August (with children heading back to school in every direction) be sure to make the most of the fabulous farmers market produce that is still very much available.

There will be plenty of time to make big batches of soup when the weather turns in earnest, but for now, why not rally one last time and whip up some wonderful meals that are light, bright and full of flavor?

Spicy Garlicky Prawns

This recipe is jam-packed full of flavor and is a cinch to make, especially if you use store-bought piri-piri sauce. If you leave out the deliciously fragrant cilantro rice, it makes for a tasty appetizer for some last-minute summer entertaining.

Don’t put away the grill just yet! There’s still plenty of warm weather ahead. If you are looking for something a bit more interesting than your standard beef burger, this lamb burger is the way to go. With whipped feta and grilled tomato slices, this burger is anything but dull.
