Insalata calda di manza con carciofi, peperoncino e noci
Warm Beef Salad With Artichokes, Chilli & Walnuts

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious beef recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my warm beef salad with artichokes, chilli & walnuts for you to enjoy.

Sardinia is famous for its beef, particularly that of the bue rosso (red cow), which grazes the pastures of the volcanic Montiferru area in central-western Sardinia and is considered by many to provide the finest beef in Italy. For this recipe I have taken the theme of a traditional Sardinian beef salad and have added artichokes and walnuts – which really complement the juicy sides of warm beef fillet – plus fresh chilli to provide a little extra kick. Serve with Sardinian flatbread (which you can find on page 108 on Gino’s Islands in the Sun!

Bucatini al pesto sicilianoBucatini with Sicilian Pesto

Classic pesto is a specialty of Liguria, in northwestern Italy. However, Sicilians have their own equally delicious, lesser-known version – just a few additional ingredients take it in an entirely new and exciting direction. In this recipe I’ve used bucatini pasta, which is basically a thicker version of spaghetti with a hole all the way through, but of course pasta of any shape will be fine.

ZUPPA DI PESCE ALL'AMALFITANAAmalfi-Style Fish Soup

You can find wonderful fish soups and stews along the Amalfi coast. They all tend to be hearty, substantial and big on flavour, but there are many variations on the theme, depending on the cook’s preference and what’s available in the market on the day. Here I’ve used a mixture of haddock, red mullet and prawns, but plenty of other types of fish, as well as mussels, squid and clams, are also...

You can substitute the Prosecco for a good Champagne and if you don’t want to use blackberries, you can use fresh strawberries. If you want to make fresh strawberry purée, just blitz 50g of fresh strawberries with 1 tablespoon of...

Tiramisu con ciliegeCherry Tiramisu

If I asked you to name one Italian dessert , I guarantee the vast majority would say tiramisu. However, not everybody likes the coffee that the biscuits are traditionally soaked in, so my version – inspired by a trip to the cherry orchards of Castello, where Ciro and his family grow wonderful fruit – uses liqueur instead. If making this for children, just leave out the booze and cook the cherries...

Pesche al forno ripiene di amaretti, noci e uva passaBaked Peaches Stuffed With Amaretti Biscuits, Walnuts & Raisins

The area around Mount Etna yields peaches that taste as though they must have come from the Garden of Eden. Their flavour intensifies with cooking, and in this dish the amaretti biscuits and walnuts give a crumbly, crunchy texture, the raisins add sweetness and the buttery juices flavoured with amaretto, wine and cinnamon are simply irresistible. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

Torta di cioccolato e fragoleChocolate & Fresh Strawberry Cake

Italians from the south don’t bake cakes all that often but my sister Marcella makes this for me whenever I visit and I love it. The combination of moist chocolate cake and fresh strawberries is wonderful and I can never only have one slice; in fact there is always a fight over who gets the last piece (I normally win!) The cake is also fantastico made with raspberries!
