The summer solstice is an ancient time of magic. Great fires were lit on hilltops in honour of the zenith of the sun’s strength.

Fresh fruits (which are increasingly available as autumn nears) are fine midsummer foods, as are any dishes that use fruit as a major ingredient.

In keeping with the heat of this holiday, flaming foods are also appropriate.
