Featured Recipes

Crispy Ricotta Tortelloni with Blue Cheese, Roasted Tomatoes, Prosciutto & Lemon

An easy entertaining idea has always been a quick Italian inspired antipasto platter. Why not take your antipasto a step further and combine it with traditional Italian tortelloni for these tasty Crispy Ricotta Tortelloni with Blue Cheese, Roasted Tomatoes, Prosciutto & Lemon.

Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pumpkin and Radicchio

My recipe for "Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pumpkin and Radicchio" is one of those dishes that I found to be beautifully delicious and captures the wonderful flavour of radicchio, sweet pumpkin and the famous Parmigiano Reggiano. Ask your butcher to bone out the chicken for you, this makes it really easy to fill and roll it at home.

Sicilian Style Steak

My "Sicilian Style Steak" is a super simple recipe and one of my weeknight staples. A perfect one-pan dish for a weekend lunch or family get together. If olives and capers aren't to your taste.... I love their saltiness. But if you don't,  you can still enjoy this simple recipe with the iconic Italian flavours of celery, tomatoes and fresh oregano.

Italian Braised Beef & Potato Spezzatino

It never ceases to amaze me the simplicity of Italian cooking – in this case my  "Italian Braised Beef & Potato Spezzatino"  is evidence that the fewer the ingredients, the better the flavour of the dish. This dish is a favourite with the men and makes a hearty winter meal served with crusty bread.

Vegan Chia Seeded Crackers

If you have already tried my Keto and Gluten Free Flax Seed Crackers then you will love these Vegan Chia Seed Crackers as they are just as if not better. Filled with healthy protein-packed seeds, nuts and so easy to mix and bake. 

The Best Chickpea & Herb Falafel

The best falafel are my Chickpea & herb falafel.  Made with soaked drained chickpeas, fresh herbs like coriander, mint, and parsley and spices such as cumin, coriander and my tried and tested recipe for Chickpea and Fresh Herb Falafel will not disappoint.
