A few dishes to remember, inspire and incentivise from the past few weeks of Instagram interestingness: From nods to nostalgia to more future facing fare…
Savoury cheesecake – always a winner for the summer
Time for tea with chef Calum’s perfect scone recipe
This motorway services restaurant on the A1 between Rome and Montepulciano puts the ones in the UK to shame – shows how the Italians have got their priorities right.
Smoked lamb ribs at Smoking Goat Bar – a cut that seems to becoming more and more popular.
Sesame tuna tostados at Tacos El Pastor – always one of my favourites when eating here.
Charred squash topped with gremolata, feta, pickled red onion and toasted pumpkin seeds by Breddos Tacos.
A plate of tarajin (a type of thin pasta from Italy’s Piedmont region), here mixed with wild herbs, petals and butter.
Pristine, super-fresh fish ready for dunking as part of a shabu-shabu – a type of Japanese hot-pot that diners cook for themselves at their table.

The best tomatoes on toast, made with marinda tomatoes and mojo verde
Vin Santo ice cream with cantuccini biscuits as made by Nigella Lawson,
