Can you believe it’s June already? Now that summer has started, regardless of the weather, more reasons then ever have surfaced to experience the different types of festivals that happen all over the island. I am firm believer that regardless if you are low on cash or the weather is not great, no reason should stop you from going outside. Life happens anyway. Some of these festivals are free, if it means bring a packed lunch and just buying a ice cream.

We adore the intense seafood flavours of this recipe from @simonmlamont The oysters and grilled with blowtorches, and have an intense seaside flavour thanks to the seaweed butter. There is a gentle sweetness from the mustard and miso, which is balanced by the clean, tart ginger.
