Fresh summer twists

Dee’s ‘fingers crossed’ paprika burgers

Remember results day? Awful, wasn’t it? The waiting. The anticipation. Dee’s son, Jamie, is getting his A level results today – and he’s feeling nervous. Dee is too, truth be told. She’s praying all his hard work has paid off. But whatever happens, she wants Jamie to know how proud she is of him. So she’ll be making him his favourite paprika burgers – topped with oozing cheese and a generous spoonful of paprika mayo – whether he’s celebrating or in need of a bit of comfort. They were lucky last time, though. So fingers crossed.

Ashley’s story began as a boy on the family allotment where his love for gardening blossomed. Now, he’s part of our team of expert growers, tending the vines by hand to bring you Tesco finest* Piccolo tomatoes. To enjoy their intensely sweet signature flavour, he suggests keeping it simple, sliced into a salad with a lug of extra virgin olive oil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. After all, why mess with perfection?
