Recipe of the Week: Risotto Verde With Peas, Spinach and Parmesan

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.

Recipe of the Week: Tagliatelle With Italian Sausage, Swiss Chard and Chilli

Italian sausages are delicious in a pasta sauce as they are a combination of fresh and cured pork with seasoning so they are almost like a seasoned mince. Adding the swiss chard to the sauce gives it more texture and is a great way to use chard stalks.

Recipe of the Week: Seabream With Tomatoes, Olives and a Fennel Salad

The tomatoes will add lots of flavour but will also keep the fish juicy and their sweetness and acidity will complement the fish. Do not squeeze lemon on the fish though - it will clash with the tomatoes.

Recipe of the Week: Pork Chop With Portobello Mushrooms and Salsa Verde

Theo Randall | Posted 04.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle

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...

Recipe of the Week: Tagliatelle With Bresaola Radicchio and Rosemary

Theo Randall | Posted 30.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a great way to use bresaola with pasta and also a good substitute for pancetta. The meatiness of the bresaola works really well with the bitterness of the radicchio. You could use a pasta like penne but tagliatelle is a bit more luxurious and holds the sauce really well.

Recipe of the Week: Tagliarini With Artichokes and Prawns

Theo Randall | Posted 09.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a really tasty pasta and surprisingly easy to make once you have prepared your artichokes. The trick is to make the artichokes very juicy so the pasta absorbs their flavour. Always use uncooked prawns as they will give you a much sweeter flavour and also a better texture.

Recipe of the Week: Pappardelle with Clams, Prawns and Swordfish

I have had a similar dish to this in a fantastic restaurant in Puglia, southern Italy. The town is Ostuni and the restaurant is called Aqua Sale. They used a pasta called pacceri which is a large tube pasta that flattens when it is cooked and therefore traps all the sauce.

Recipe of the Week: Gnocchi With Spinach, Ricotta, Parmesan and Sage Butter

Theo Randall

This is such a simple recipe but is also very impressive. The trick to a good gnocchi is to make sure they are as light as possible and they do not break up. Make sure the gnocchi have sage butter on top as this will make them really delicious. Have a good week!

Recipe of the Week: Fusilli With Broccoli, Chilli, Anchovies and Garlic

Theo Randall | Posted 12.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Fusilli is a brilliant pasta to use because the little spirals get clogged up with the sauce so every mouthful tastes delicious.

Recipe of the Week: Penne All'Arabiatta

Theo Randall | Posted 12.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

Penne alla arabbiata is one of the most delicious classic pasta sauces that people take for granted. Try this way as you will get the true flavour of the red chillies as they are cooked into the olive oil with the garlic and basil.

Recipe of the Week: Porcini Mushrooms in Pancetta on Sourdough Bread

Theo Randall | Posted 25.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

Porcini are the most delicious mushrooms and with the addition of pancetta they taste amazing. They can be hard to get hold of so you could use portobello mushrooms instead but they won't be as tasty.

Recipe of the Week: Fennel, Artichoke and Puntarelle Salad With Anchovy Sauce

Theo Randall | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a really simple recipe that has amazing flavour and texture. The addition of the anchovy sauce makes all the difference. Make sure you use a mandolin to slice the vegetables so you get a consistent thickness. This salad is delicious on its own or could be served with a whole roast fish as an accompaniment.

Recipe of the Week: Mushroom Risotto

This has got to be most people's favourite risotto. It has lots of flavour and is probably the tastiest vegetarian risotto. Make sure you have a good vegetable stock as this will ensure you get a good flavoursome result.

Recipe of the Week: Penne With Italian Sausage and Tomato

Theo Randall | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a really good way to use Italian sausages. They have lots of flavour as they are a mixture of cured and fresh pork. By taking them out their skins you have an instant mince which can cook very quickly. The addition of a tablespoon of cream just finishes of this sauce perfectly.

Recipe of the Week: Spirale Pasta With Squash, Pancetta and Cannelloni Beans

Theo Randall | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This recipe is a great way to incorporate squash with pasta and it doesn't require baking the squash in the oven. The addition of the pancetta and sage makes it richer and by adding the cannellini beans give it a much heartier texture and flavour

Recipe for the Weekend: Mussel Soup

Theo Randall | Posted 20.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is one of the tastiest and easiest ways to cook and eat mussels. Make sure you get fresh mussels as they do not keep for very long. Also make sure they are well cleaned! By adding the bread it makes it a much more filling and also soaks up most of the juice.

Recipe for the Weekend: Red Mullet Tagliarini

Theo Randall | Posted 13.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

Red mullet is the most delicious fish and using it this way is a great way to show how sweet and juicy it can be. The bay leaf goes really well with the tomato and the texture of the fine taglierini with the chunks of red mullet is wonderful! Have a good weekend!

Recipe for the Weekend: Scallop and Samphire Tagliarini

Theo Randall | Posted 30.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a good way to combine samphire with scallops and prawns, as the samphire adds lots of flavour and texture to the sweet shellfish. The addition of the creme fraiche just brings together all the flavours.

Recipe for the Weekend: Seabass Carpaccio

Theo Randall | Posted 09.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a great way to eat really fresh seabass. Try cut the fish a thin as you can because if it is too thick it becomes a bit unpalatable. The addition of the tomatoes and chilli helps cut the richness of the raw fish. Try and avoid using lemon juice because the tomatoes have enough acidity and adding lemon would kill the delicious subtle flavour of the seabass.

Recipe for the Weekend: Tagliatelle With Lobster, Tomatoes and Courgettes

Theo Randall | Posted 02.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a great recipe to use a small lobster. As you are making a stock with the shell, you create a lot of lobster flavour which is perfect with the tagliatelle as is absorbs it really well. The addition of the courgettes gives it a juicy texture too. Try this recipe now as lobster prices are at their lowest this time of year.

Recipe for the Weekend: Tagliarini, Artichokes and Summer Truffle

Theo Randall | Posted 11.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This recipe is a great way to experience a summer truffle. Summer truffles are not the strongest of truffles but by using artichoke and parmesan it brings out its subtle flavour. There is a temptation to add a drop of truffle oil but try and resist because by not adding it you will get the true flavour of the truffle.

This is a really good way of enjoying tender lamb without having to buy a whole leg or an expensive rack. The rump takes on a lovely flavour from the marinade and it is a great combination with the slightly sweet roasted vegetable, particularly with the freshness of the salsa verde

This slightly spicy dish is a fresh take on classic fried calamari and will definitely warm-up a cold winter night. This recipe for homemade batter is very light and delicate, and really simple to do.

This luxurious and surprisingly quick dish is the ultimate weekend indulgence and the very best way to eat one of my favourite foods. I always source my lobster from the British Isles, particularly Scotland, as it has a wonderfully sweet and fresh flavour.

For this weekend I wanted to prepare a delicious taglierini with brown shrimp and artichokes. The recipe is made with beautiful sweet shrimp and young artichokes, which only have a tiny bit of choke inside.
