Feast your eyes on the finest pork loin with white wine and sage pesto! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Wash the sage leaves and place in a food processor with the almonds, garlic, cheese and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Blitz for 20 seconds to create a smooth sage pesto.
  2. Use a sharp knife to make small cuts on the edges of the pork slices to prevent them from curling when you cook them.
  3. Spread the sage pesto on eight of the slices of pork and cover with the remaining eight, creating a sandwich effect.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the pork ‘sandwiches’ on one side for 2–3 minutes. Turn the meat over and continue to cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour in the wine and continue to cook for 4 minutes, turning the meat at least once more.
  6. Serve immediately, allowing two ‘sandwiches’ per portion and accompany with your favourite crispy salad.

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...

I love good-quality sausages so this recipe is definitely in my top ten. My grandfather used to make this dish for me when I was a boy but he used a tomato passata instead of the cream that I have introduced. I wish he could have tasted my version as I know I would have got a huge cuddle for this one – he would have loved it and I know that you will too. For those of you who don’t like mushrooms,...

Spiedini di AgnelloSkewered Marinated Lamb with Rosemary & Mint

Often people have this misconception that you can only make meat skewers in the summer and cooked on a BBQ – this is not the case.  Make sure once the skewers are ready to be cooked that your griddle pan is very very hot to enable the meat not to get stuck to the pan.  Use sirloin steak if you prefer and if you don’t like mushrooms substitute it with shallot onions.

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...

Aubergines were introduced to the Mediterranean region by the Arabs in the Middle Ages and Sicilians use them a lot in their cooking.

Choose the heaviest aubergines you can find and cut just before...

Torta di Pane al CioccolatoChocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it's a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when...
