Spiedini di pollo con insalata di fagioli e ceciChicken Skewers With Beans & Chickpea Salad

This is a great way to cook chicken – the sweetness of the marmalade combines with the smokiness and spice of the paprika to give a delicious glaze. I usually cook the skewers on a barbecue, but you can char-grill them too. When threading them, it helps to use the natural curved shape of the yellow peppers or onions at either end to keep the other ingredients secure.

Stufato di agnello alla pugliesePuglian Lamb Stew

You’d have probably expected me to cook a seafood dish when visiting the picturesque cove of Polignano a Mare, in Puglia.

Insalata di sgombro affumicato con arance e finocchiSmoked Mackerel, Orange & Fennel Salad

Oranges go perfectly with smoked mackerel, particularly the red oranges that are so abundant in Sicily.

Torrone sardoSardinian Nougat

Nougat is sold in the street markets in most towns in Sardinia and the variations on offer are vast. The one I have chosen to feature in this book is the classic and most popular version and, in my opinion, the best. You can store it in an airtight container for up to a week, but don’t put it in the fridge as it will become soft and very sticky.
