If you are looking for some simple and refreshing summer recipes, see my friend Rupert's new blog, which highlights his life as a B & B owner in south Portugal. I had the pleasure of staying with Rupert and Andrew in their London apartment while launching a magazine a few years back and was spoiled by the nightly gourmet meals and their easy-going, fun company. They have since packed up and moved to a glorious spot under a castle, with bountiful garden and beach nearby. I can't wait to go myself! See their website for photos and travel details if you are looking to plan a unique and sophisticated getaway.
