About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious oranges recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my aperol and blood orange sorbet for you to enjoy.

The Aperol Spritz, sometimes called the Spritz Veneziano, is a refreshing orange cocktail made from Aperol and prosecco. It’s extremely popular across Italy, particularly in Venice, and is fast becoming a drink of choice in Britain, too. So what better way to do it justice than to make it into a beautiful sorbet to enjoy on a hot summer’s day?

Feast your eyes on the finest aperol and blood orange sorbet! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Put the sugar and 200ml water in a small saucepan. Heat over a low heat for several minutes until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Increase the heat and bring to the boil. Boil for 1–2 minutes then remove from the heat. Leave to cool.
  2. Add the orange juice and Aperol and stir.
  3. Pour the mixture into a 2-litre shallow, freezerproof container. Cover and freeze for 2–3 hours.
  4. Remove the partially frozen sorbet from the freezer and blitz the mixture using a food processor or blender (blitzing will break down the ice crystals). When the sorbet is pale orange and smooth, return to the freezer and leave overnight or until frozen.
  5. About 15 minutes before serving, transfer the sorbet to the fridge to soften slightly.

Linguine al granchio e proseccoCrab & Prosecco Linguine

Venice’s Rialto Fish Market is a vibrant, bustling place full of amazing fresh produce. I loved the atmosphere – all the locals out shopping and the fishmongers loudly calling out their catch of the day. These guys start work so early that they can often be seen enjoying their lunch with a glass of prosecco by 9am! So you can see where I found the inspiration for this recipe. Fresh crab is paired...

FrisciolasSaffron & Potato Doughnuts With Vodka & Orange

Carnival celebrations in Sardinia wouldn’t be the same without frisciolas – these delicious little saffron-flavoured doughnuts made from potatoes and dusted with orange-flavoured sugar. You can substitute the orange zest for lemon or lime zest, and amaretto and Cointreau work well instead of vodka if you prefer. Perfect with espresso.

Soufflé Di Banane e CioccolatoBanana & Chocolate Soufflé

In our family, the combination of chocolate and banana is a big winner, especially in pancakes or cupcakes, so I created this soufflé just for a change. It's really easy to prepare, and also works well with strawberries or raspberries.

COPPETTE DI FRAGOLE, MASCARPONE E LIMONCELLOStrawberry & Mascarpone Tarts with Limoncello

For me, limoncello is the scent and flavour of home. Traditionally, this citrus liqueur is made from the best lemons in the world – Sorrento lemons. In Italy it is a hugely popular drink, with many people in the south making their own version. It’s really strong, about 40% proof, so you only need a small amount. Here, limoncello is mixed with creamy Italian cheeses and fresh seasonal strawberries...

Zuppa Di Porri E RucolaLeek, Potato And Rocket Soup

One of my favourite British recipes has to be leek and potato soup. Such a simple recipe but with a unique balance of flavours. I decided to add rocket leaves to this fantastic soup, which adds a peppery flavour to the dish. Do serve this soup with my home-made garlic croutons, you are going to love it! Make sure that the consistency of the soup is not too runny and use fresh leeks for the best results.

Bruschette con crema d’avocadoAvocado & Smoked Paprika Bruchette

Believe it or not, I tasted my first avocado when I came to England and, contrary to the popularity of ‘tricolore salad’ in Britain, in Italy, this dish just doesn’t exist. On its own, avocado can often be bland but it’s fantastic in salads or with a spicy dish. I wanted to create a recipe with this fruit, as it has an extremely high nutritional value and helps provide many general health benefits....
