Wild garlic pesto

Chorizo and wild garlic pesto

While there’s more to wild garlic recipes than pesto, this is one you won’t want to miss out on. Richard Massey of The Old Quay House Hotel in Fowey takes the pasta-staple next level with the addition of fiery chorizo. Stir it through tagliatelle, smother it on salmon fillets, dollop it on homebaked pizza … the possibilities are endless.

Cauliflower, Devon blue and wild garlic fritters

Cauliflower, Devon Blue and wild garlic fritters

These simple veggie fritters from Greg Tyler of Rosemoor Kitchen Garden in Torrington are super versatile and an ideal way of using up random remains from the veg drawer, as well as any hard cheese ends. The use of wild garlic adds a unique spring punch; we like to serve them with homemade wild garlic aioli for a double-whammy garlic hit.
