Chargrilled mackerel, salads, squid: favourite seasonal recipes from the finest chefs

• Free with the Observer on Sunday 4 August: 20 best summer dessert recipes

Giorgio Locatelli's chargrilled mackerel with herb crust

Mackerel is a fantastic but underrated fish, which is brilliant cooked inside a crispy herb crust that protects the fish, keeping it moist and trapping in all the delicate flavours. You can do this with mackerel fillets, too, in the same way, but leave out the stuffing and cook the fillets, skin side first, for 2-3 minutes, depending on the thickness, then turn over for a further 2-3 minutes.

Serves 4

tomatoes 4, diced

olive oil 100ml

white onions 4, cut into about 2cm dice

white wine vinegar 3 tbsp

salted capers (preferably baby ones) 4 tbsp, rinsed

medium-sized mackerel 4, gutted

rosemary 4 sprigs

garlic 4 cloves

mixed salad leaves 4 handfuls

Giorgio's vinaigrette 4 tbsp (see below)

For the herb crust

parsley a small bunch, picked

rosemary a small bunch,

Q Pootle 5 | LIve Swimming: World Championships | Raymond Blanc: How To Cook Well | Failed By The NHS | Caligula With Mary Beard | Undercover Boss | Coming Up

Q Pootle 5

8.15am, CBeebies

Sweet CGI action show about amiable alien Q Pootle 5 and his friends: two-headed Eddie, giggling Oopsy and Bud-d (who resembles the lovechild of a robot and an oven). Less laddy than those Octonauts, they're a tight gang with the magical power to mesmerise pre-schoolers. Keen-eared kids' TV fans will appreciate the legendary talent involved. Yes, the men behind Fireman Sam and Daddy Pig lend their voices. In this opening episode, the group take part in the great space race, but Oopsy is having some technical problems. Hannah Verdier

Live Swimming: World Championships

6pm, BBC2

Second day of action from Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi. While some members of Team Gb accrued more Olympic gold last year than Mr T's neck circa 1986, Britain's

Yigit Pura on the Single Life, a Rainbow Sprinkled Torso and Other New Endeavors

It’s been a little over a year since San Francisco resident Yigit Pura won the first season of Bravo reality competition series, Top Chef: Just Desserts and was also voted fan favorite by the viewers. Since that television exposure Pura has been wearing many hats. While holding down his day job as Executive Pastry Chef with Taste Catering & Event Planning, he also signed on as a Bravo website blogger when the second season of Just Desserts aired in late summer. Plus, he appeared regularly at Lgbt-related benefits and fundraisers, and he's starred in a series of Cooking Channel videos with fellow gay pastry chef Zac Young.

Now, thankfully for us, he is shedding his shirt and being doused in rainbow sprinkles for a 2012 calendar benefiting Meals On Wheels.

To talk about the calendar and to see if there’s more television in his future, Pura put the oven on

TV review: Home Cooking Made Easy; There's No Taste Like Home

Lorraine Pascale makes home cooking too easy to be inspiring

You thought the schedules were stuffed to bursting point with cooking shows? Me too. We were wrong. Food is now a national obsession. They just keep on coming; loosen your belt another notch.

And if you want to get on television, this is the way to do it: call the TV people up, tell them your idea, and that's it, you're on. You're no cooking expert? No matter, look at Greg from MasterChef. There just needs to be something about you, some sort of selling point.

So what's Lorraine Pascale's Usp, apart from the fact that she's named after a quiche? Her winning smile, I think. It's absolutely lovely. All of her is, to be honest, she's very, very pretty – about a billion times more so than Greg from MasterChef. So pretty that before she was a TV chef

BBC2's Great British Menu versus ITV's Britain's Best Dish

We find out which is the best daily teatime, Britain-centric, regional, judge-based cookery show on air

BBC2's Great British Menu and ITV's Britain's Best Dish have an awful lot in common. They're both weekday teatime cookery shows. They're both in the middle of mammoth 40- plus episode runs. They both have regional heats, a team of glowering judges, a prize at the end and a reference to this very country in their titles. But there's a problem – surely nobody can devote 90 minutes of their precious teatime to watching two almost identical cookery shows every single day. We need to put Great British Menu and Britain's Best Dish head to head to see which comes out on top as the definitive daily teatime, Britain-centric, regional, judge-based cookery show on air. Ready?

Running Wilde TV Review

Rarely have I seen a show that seemed to have so much potential on paper, while at the same time managing to convince me that so little of that potential will ultimately be realized. The outline of Running Wilde may not exactly jump out at me – the wacky love-interest angle between the rich, spoiled son of an oil tycoon, and the (let’s face it) laughably liberal girl who got away when the two were kids – but the people involved in the show offer up bags of potential television goodness, and moreover bring to mind just the sort of potential that is ripe for the market right now.

Will Arnett is a fairly safe bet at the moment, as more and more people come into the Arrested Development fold. It’s a rare testament to everything about Ad that the number of fans never seems to stop growing. Thus, when

Pajiba After Dark 4/6/10

  • Pajiba
I'm within a month of being done with my first year of Grad school, which means that the next few weeks are a veritable flurry of tests, projects, academic advising meetings and the like. And that's just to do with school, never mind the other mess with regards to what I'm going to do for the summer, where I'm going to be living next year, and just what the hell am I going to do with myself a year from now after I've actually earned this degree so I will not be getting a good night's sleep until probably May 13th at the earliest. According to certain people I get more amusing the more sleep deprived I get so maybe all of y'all have something to look forward to. Welcome to Tuesday night:

'Hell's Kitchen' recap: Exploding fish and other peculiarities

Howdy, PopWatchers. To compensate for depriving us of Hell's Kitchen last week, Fox kindly aired two back-to-back episodes last night. However, in all honesty, the episodes were so similar that they have merged to form one massive Hk blob in my mind. This isn't to say that last night didn't feature a number of developments, including the first instance of Chef Ramsay walking out of the restaurant altogether. Plus, the episodes did have a reoccurring theme: The downfall of Van. We'll get to Mr. Sweaty Tamale soon, but first things first... Episode 10 Suzanne joined the blue team, and Kevin, Dave, and Van weren't too thrilled about it. As the three guys lectured Suzanne on what they expected from her, we got a glimpse of an orange ashtray, and holy mother of nicotine, that ashtray was being used. Suzanne, Dave, and Van were all smoking cigarettes, but that still doesn't explain
