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...

BrodettoPrawn & Monkfish Soup

Once considered poor man’s food, Italian fish soup can now be found in the best restaurants along the Adriatic coast. From Trieste to Puglia you’ll find the so-called brodetti (broths), although they vary from region to region. We had countless bowlfuls on our coastal journey; each was unique and all were delicious. Here I’ve used prawns and monkfish, but any white fish would work just as well....

Linguine Alla AmatricianaLinguine With Cherry Tomatoes, Pancetta And White Wine

With no doubt, I have to dedicate this recipe to my friend and manager Jeremy Hicks. We have known each other for seven years now and without fail he has to have this pasta dish at least once a week. I actually agree with him, it's one of my favourites too, because I just love the combination of the onion, pancetta and chilli. If you prefer, you can substitute linguine with spaghetti or tagliatelle.

Spigola con puré di cannellini e salsa al basilicoPan-Fried Sea Bass With Cannellini Mash & Basil Sauce

It has often been said that beans are the meat of the poor man, as they are a healthy alternative to meat, but in Italy, beans are used in pasta dishes, salads, mashed and spread on bruschetta - to name but a few options. They are used all day every day and are so incredibly good for you - packed with protein and soluble fibre, they make a really wonderful alternative to potatoes. The creamy bean mash...

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.

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...
