This is a simple risotto to make and the combination of peas, spinach and parmesan is delicious. It is very important that you cook the rice with the onion for the first few minutes so the rice will be hot when you add the hot stock. This way the rice will cook evenly and the risotto will have a chewy bite.
With so many great reasons to visit Rome, it's a task in itself to narrow down the must-see attractions. With more than 900 churches alone - that's more than two church visits every day for a year - it's unlikely that you will fit everything into one visit. So, don't try and rush around the city to see every ruin or piazza - save it for your next holiday to Rome!
Off I went to Manchester to see what the deal was. On King Street West, in the main shopping district of the city, you'll find San Carlo. And you'll discover an amazing story about this place too. For the man behind this business - a hugely successful restaurateur making millions from branches from Bangkok to Kuwait - used to be barber.
This recipe is so easy you have to try it. It's a really delicious lunch dish or even something to put in the middle of the table. Make sure you clean your clams well as you do not want any grit. The combination of the garlicky clams with courgette and tomato is lovely. It's a bowl of clams with a lovely soupy juice that has the tender courgettes. The grilled bread is to mop up all the juice. If you cannot get clams try mussels it works well. Have a great week!
You have to do this recipe this week as the English peas are perfect at the moment. If you wait too long they will become old and tough. This is probably the best way to enjoy peas as the combination of the sweet peas with the salty proscuitto and the butter pasta is absolutely delicious... Have a great week!
This is the most delicious frittata. It's easy to make looks good and can be eaten either hot or cold - in fact it is perfect served with a glass of prosecco before lunch or dinner. Make sure you cook the courgettes so there is no water left in them and use fresh ricotta to make it taste light and creamy.
Salmon trout is such a delicious fish and cooked this simple way the fish will remain juicy and you will get the best flavour and texture. The chilli mint sauce with the courgette fritti is a great combination and very simple to prepare. The fresher the courgettes the crispier your fritti will be. Have a great week!
Pork chops can be really dry and uninspiring but try cooking them this way so they stay really juicy. When you buy the pork, make sure it has a nice amount of fat on it because fat is flavour when it comes to cooking pork. The salsa verde cuts the richness of the pork and gives off a fresh herby flavour which goes really well with the mushrooms...
I love this dish because it is so easy and very tasty. The great thing about using a pasta shape like Rigatoni is that it will hold the sauce well and has a lovely chewiness when cooked properly. You can make this dish in the same time as takes to cook the pasta so it really is delicious health fast food...
Artichokes and carrots are a really good combination. They have a similar texture when cooked this way and the sweetness of the carrot works well with the unique artichoke flavour. Horseradish is delicious with beef but by using bread instead of cream it has a much more heat so be careful how much you serve... Have a good week and Happy Christmas!
