About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious peaches recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my baked peaches stuffed with amaretti biscuits, walnuts & raisins for you to enjoy.

The area around Mount Etna yields peaches that taste as though they must have come from the Garden of Eden.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Take a peach half and enlarge the stone cavity slightly by removing a little of the flesh with a teaspoon. Chop the removed flesh and set aside. Repeat for all the peaches.
  2. Place the raisins in a small bowl or cup, pour over the amaretto liqueur and leave to soak for 20 minutes.
  3. To make the filling, put the chopped peach flesh, amaretti biscuits, 40g of the sugar, the egg yolk, cocoa powder, walnuts, cinnamon and half the butter in a small bowl. Mix well. Stir in the raisins and the soaking liquid.
  4. Grease a baking dish measuring about 18 x 25cm with butter and place the peaches cut-side up in the dish.
  5. Divide the filling between the peach halves, pressing it into each cavity. Sprinkle over the remaining sugar and pour the wine around the fruit. Dot the remaining butter on top of the filling. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

I’m from Naples, the city that invented pizza, and I’ve been brought up with them all my life. There is nothing quite like a freshly cooked Margherita pizza. I love the flavour so much that I have copied the ingredients and added them to this chicken recipe to give me that Italian kick I sometimes crave.

Frittelle di zucchine con pecorinoCourgette Fritters With Pecorino

Whenever we are in Olbia, a port town on the northeast coast of Sardinia near my home, we order courgette fritters instead of chips. They make a great side dish or snack, but if you include cheese, as I have done here, they make a more substantial first course. Pecorino sardo, a traditional Sardinian hard cheese made from sheep’s milk – is similar to the better-known pecorino romano (which...

Stufato di agnello alla pugliesePuglian Lamb Stew

You’d have probably expected me to cook a seafood dish when visiting the picturesque cove of Polignano a Mare, in Puglia. However, despite facing the sea, the absence of safe moorings for boats has prevented the development of a fishing tradition in the town, so it relies on agriculture.

Insalata di Couscous con Olive e AsparagiCouscous Salad With Olives, Asparagus & Grana Padano

Couscous is so easy to prepare, but it does need the addition of some really good flavours to make it come to life. This rainbow salad is a fantastic source of vitamin C and is surprisingly filling. It’s great as a main course or you can reduce the quantities and serve it as a side with barbecued meats or grilled fish.

Sardinia is famous for its beef, particularly that of the bue rosso (red cow), which grazes the pastures of the volcanic Montiferru area in central-western Sardinia and is considered by many to provide the finest beef in Italy.

Fusili con ragu di coniglioPasta with Rabbit Ragu

This recipe is very different and worth a try. The flavours are unique compared to what you and your family are probably used to and it really is a wonderful, rich way to make a ragù. Please, whatever you do, don’t just throw away the discarded vegetables. Place them in a saucepan with some passata (sieved tomatoes) and heat it through; then you have created a sauce that can be used to top fish...
