How to... make rhubarb and cardamom jam with Lillie O’Brien of London Borough of Jam — Lillie O'Brien, originally from Melbourne in Australia, is the former St John pastry chef who also runs her business making jams and preserves and selling them in her Hackney shop, London Borough of Jam as well as in various London delis.

It’s in cocktails, salads, sushi and ice cream: the Japanese yuzu is giving a citrus twist to our summer in London — It is the colour of a lemon, shaped like a mandarin, tastes more like a sweet orangey grapefruit, and even the tiniest drip of its juice on your tongue will deliver a startlingly sharp-sweet hit that springs you into action.

How to... drink and buy rosé wine in London with Simon Field of Berry Bros. & Rudd — Happily it has become that time of year when we want to spread out the picnic rugs, lay out a spread of good food and a few bottles of rosé and spring into the weekend. Many of us know that we like rosé wine, but we don't know which bottles to buy.

Made in London: meet baker Matt Jones of Bread Ahead Bakery — We're really about sourdough: a white, a brown, a raisin and a multigrain, a range of Italian style breads, good baguette, doughnuts and some other snacky things like cheese straws. We try to stick to what we're good at. How many customers do you have?

How to... drink and buy sake in London with Elyse Li of Japan Gourmet — From original ramen restaurants like Kanada-Ya, Ippudo and Tonkotsu to a collection of special haunts serving excellent sushi and wagyu beef such as Koji, Kurobuta and Engawa, London is brimming with Japanese food. And what better to drink with it than a bottle of sake?

Anyone for a charcoal burger? London's latest ingredient is smoking hot — The culprit is charcoal, which is now being added to mixing bowls in kitchens across London, having stormed through parts of Asia. Last year Burger King Japan launched a black burger with charcoal cheese and squid ink sauce, while on Instagram there are more than 2,600 posts including #charcoalbun or #charcoalburger, mostly from Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Australia.

My foodie London: Ceviche's Martin Morales — My body is in west London, my soul is in our restaurants and my heart is at home with my wife and kids. You brought the pisco sour to London, where can you buy good pisco in the capital? From any Amathus Shop [Soho or Knightsbridge]. My all-time favourite brand has to be 1615.

Victoria Stewart's trend round-up for Easter 2015: salted caramel in a bottle — Has anyone ever resisted salted caramel? I doubt it. A sticky, sweet, salty, gorgeous mess, it's the sly little devil who waits on your shoulder knowing you will eventually surrender. This glorious deep brown goo has the ability to make people close their eyes in ecstasy.

It's the hot new ingredient in New York and San Francisco - and now macadamia nut oil is trickling across the pond to London — So now we all know about coconut oil, which decided to smother itself over our hair, bodies and frying pans faster than we could say the words food and trend. But do you know about macadamia oil, which comes, as you might imagine, from pressing macadamia nuts?

Eat streets: how to feast your way down London's best resto-roads including Goodge Street and Kingsland Road — For a single road to become a fully fledged avenue of deliciousness it needs a cluster of good restaurants. While Brick Lane is famous for its Indian food, and Whitecross Street offers Clerkenwell the best Latin-American burritos, to qualify for serious food heritage status a thoroughfare needs variety.
