Well, what do you know, here’s a taste combination from out of the blue! Asparagus and dolci Gorgonzola. Add grilled polenta and well-paired wine and you will be in Italian food heaven.
Here’s a really easy way with gnocchi. Add to a quick cheese sauce made with Gorgonzola, add a few chives and that’s it. Use a good Gorgonzola (I’ve used the excellent cheese made by Tosi),
These pastries are irresistable. They look and taste delicious.
This recipe matches asparagus with a deconstructed puttanesca sauce. Surprisingly, this really works – the asparagus stands up well to the robust pizza flavours.
This is an Italian stew made from spring vegetables including artichokes, broad beans, peas. My version includes asparagus, which shares the sweet earthy taste of main ingredients. In some versions the vegetables are deliverately overcooked. However, here they are cooked till tender and arranged over grilled polenta.
Most asparagus bruschetta recipes use goats cheese. I tried this and it’s okay but unremarkable, so I made a artichoke and cannellini bean puree to replace the cheese – it’s much better.
Fresh asparagus is full of flavour and goodness – the perfect vegetable to celebrate the arrival of spring. Dairy, eggs, potatoes, Parmesan and parsley all marry well with tasty asparagus and come together to create this delicious frittata recipe.
Here is the simplest way to enjoy the flavour combination of asparagus and Parma ham – side-by-side.
A great flavour combination and presented here as a main meal salad or antipasto.
This is a standard Soho trattatoria fare of the 70’s. Bresaola, rocket and Parmesan is still popular so the avocado element seems to have fallen out of favour. Put it back in – it’s a good combo!
This is part of a series of really easy dishes – this one only take as long as the pasta does to cook. They’re perfect for a quick supper after work or lunch or tea with the kids.
Another ‘leftover’ from an Easter anti pasto and another recipe worth posting.
This is one of the best things I have made. A moment of serendipity, just when you can’t imagine what to cook, something rather good comes out of nowhere…
Inspired by the ricotta tarts made in Naples at Easter.
