As the summer holidays move into full swing and many of us enjoy some precious time off work, spending hours on end in a hot kitchen isn’t something that appeals to any of us. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy some great easy and light meals with friends and loved ones, and this month, the popular Limassol based chef, Roddy Damalis, is on hand to prove that summer cooking can be a real breeze!
