Pea and pecorino fritters

If you’re a fan of Parmesan, why not give pecorino a try? Made from sheep milk, it’s similarly sharp but milder and slightly sweeter. Nici Wickes pairs it with peas and dill in these little pancakes.

Tua Tua fritters with tartare

Definitely one of my favourite pastimes is digging for shellfish at low tide with my family. It’s a terrific way for the kids to connect with where their food comes from. They can help with the whole process; gathering, preparation, removing the meat from the shells and, of course, cooking the actual fritters. – Al Brown

Pāua fritters

As kids, we were spoiled with these! Friends of Mum and Dad always used to drop off pāua and now I crave them, so I love getting my hands on some when I can. I have changed my usual recipe a little, with inspiration from my chef brother, by adding some herbs and zest. These are fantastic!
