He says the most popular dishes this summer involve seafood. “We are selling out of lobster every day at the restaurant - it’s the go-to summer shellfish. We get a daily delivery from the waterfront market, so it’s fresh and tasty. Pair this with summer fruits like mango or watermelon, and it’s simply irresistible.”
And what are his suggestions to keep ingredients fresh in the summer? “Buy what you need daily from local markets and most importantly buy local foods. They are cheaper, and it’s better for the environment. Experiment with fruits and vegetables you don’t know.”
A go-to ingredient for any dish would be lemon. “I use it everywhere - for zest and juice in all my recipes,” says Jason. Whether the sun’s shining or the rain is pouring, there’s always something to celebrate when you’ve got a few summer dishes up your sleeve.
His favourite dish to make and why? “Anything that involves fish. I love the whole process - the market, cleaning and preparing the fish and finally the cooking. Fresh Pan Fried Fish with a wedge of lemon is bliss.”
