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.

Petti di pollo con salsa al Marsala, pomodoro e uva passaChicken Breasts in Marsala & Tomato Sauce with Raisins

When I was filming for the TV series I visited Marco De Bartoli’s vineyard in Samperi, near Marsala – an ancient town on the western edge of Sicily. I spent a wonderful day with his son, Renato De Bartoli, who told me about the history of Marsala wine – its production dates back to 1770, when an Englishman accidentally discovered the local fortified wine and shipped it to England, where it...

Here’s a great alternative to the traditional British bangers and mash. Italian sausages tend to be highly flavoured with herbs and spices, such as fennel, which adds a perfect boost of flavour to this recipe.

Avocado Grigliato Ripieno di Pomodori, Cipollotti, Olive e CapperiGrilled Avocado Stuffed With Tomatoes, Spring Onions, Olives & Capers

This dish is rather retro and I used to make it when I first came to London as a teenager. Make sure that the avocados are perfectly ripe and don’t use buffalo mozzarella, as it will release too much milk during cooking. Grilling the avocado makes it softer and more velvety, but don’t overcook or it will turn mushy. Serve with your favourite salad leaves.

Petti di pollo con salsa al mascarponeChicken breasts in mascarpone sauce

Chicken is the most common source of meat in the world. Some would say it is a tasteless meat, but they haven’t tried this dish yet! This recipe was one of my favourites as a child – perhaps it’s the simplicity that appealed to me. Mascarpone cheese is a speciality of Lombardy and is used a lot in northern Italian cooking, but if you can’t find it you can replace it with a thick double...

Gnocchi al Forno con Cannellini, Spinaci e PomodoriBaked Gnocchi with Cannellini Beans, Spinach and Tomatoes

I love making fresh gnocchi with my kids, but sometimes I simply don’t have the time so I buy them instead. When buying gnocchi, look for a good-quality brand that contains at least 70 per cent potato. Baking shop-bought gnocchi can really jazz them up. Here I’ve combined them with spinach, cherry tomatoes, cannellini beans and cheese for a hearty dish. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.
