Step By Step

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.

Grease 8 ramekins with the melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder inside each one, coating the bottom and sides evenly. Discard any excess cocoa.

Place the bananas and Nutella in a food processor or blender and blitz to a smooth texture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.

In a large, clean dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Add the caster sugar and whisk again for about 1 minute.

Using a flexible spatula, fold half the egg whites into the banana and chocolate mixture. Once combined, very gently fold in the rest.

Divide the mixture equally between the ramekins, then place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until risen.

Sprinkle the top with icing sugar if you wish and serve immediately.

Pollo MargheritaChicken Breasts with Cherry Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Basil

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. It is important not to use buffalo mozzarella for this recipe as it is very milky and releases...

Couscous alla trapanese con pesce, pomodori e mandorleTrapani-Style Couscous with Fish, Tomatoes & Almonds

There are literally dozens of recipes for this classic Sicilian couscous dish, most of which have the addition of seafood and chilli – but here I’ve let the sweet white fish do the talking. The town of Trapani is famous for couscous, and there is an annual couscous festival there in September. Ask your fishmonger for end cuts and bones to flavour the sauce.

Just halve the courgettes lengthways, run a teaspoon down the centre...
