Pulled pork just got more irresistible with a sticky Asian marinade. This is a brilliantly versatile dish - use it to fill rice paper rolls or Chinese-style puffy omelettes or, as we do, stuff it in a baguette with pickled vegetables, a squiggle of sriracha chilli sauce and some mayo for a sort of easy banh mi. If you have leftovers, you could toss them through cooked hokkien noodles with steamed Asian greens, chopped into bite-sized pieces.

There is a looming tomato crisis in my garden. At the beginning of the summer growing season, through a combination of busyness and laziness, I repeatedly missed the opportunity to plant our annual crop of tomatoes. Weeks then months passed, with the vegie patch receiving little or no attention but then, as I looked out one summer’s morning, I saw that where there had been a patch of soil in a tastefully rustic raised garden bed, there were now three flourishing tomato plants, already top-heavy with fruit.
