Fragole, Amaretto e Mandorle
Strawberries and Almonds with Amaretto Liqueur and Greek Yoghurt

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious strawberries recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my strawberries and almonds with amaretto liqueur and greek yoghurt for you to enjoy.

Strawberries are on sale in supermarkets all year round but more often than not, the flavour isn’t good unless they are in season. This recipe is perfect for those months when the berries are lacking their full taste and sweetness, as the Amaretto and honey add that extra something the fruit needs. This is a lovely refreshing dessert that will look really impressive if served in cocktail glasses.

Risotto con porri, Taleggio e pinoliLeek, Taleggio and Pine Kernel Risotto

Leeks make a fantastic alternative to onions, and yet many people only use them in soups. I got inspiration for this recipe while I was in Siena; I was served a bowl of leeks, cheese, nuts and sausages (which is also a great sauce for pasta) and I wanted to try and incorporate the same flavours in a risotto. I have left this as a vegetarian option, but by all means add in some cooked pancetta...

Svizzere Do AgnelloSpicy Lamb Burgers With Herbed Yoghurt

For burgers, lamb makes a really nice change from beef. These need to be prepared ahead and rested in the fridge to make sure they don’t fall apart when they are cooked, so they’re a great make-ahead meal.

This zingy first-course salad takes only minutes to prepare yet is full of flavour and goodness.
