It's hot outside AND in the kitchen, as Food Tube turn up the heat and take you to paradise with this week's lip-smacking, tummy-teasing, joy-bubbling recipes.

Gennaro captures the taste of the sea with a little pasta dish from the island of Gozo. Mussels straight from the ocean gently cooked in garlic, wine and chilli with sweet cherry tomatoes and cannellini beans. Bellisimo!

Feel the Moroccan heat with Aaron craze (he's back baby) and his spicy meatball sub made with melt in your mouth lamb. It screams delicious!

We take a trip back in time to when Jamie was just 30 years old on a road trip through beautiful Italy. Here he is in this exclusive, unseen video in Marettimo, an island west of Sicily, discovering homemade couscous.
