Well, hers, mine – and Norma’s too…
Caponata is a Sicilian specialty. I’ve adapted the recipe to include basil flowers scented with cinnamon.
There’s a big culinary issue at stake here. Is pork belly skin and fat best when its crispy or when it is soft and unctuous? I like it both ways – here’s how to do soft and unctuous.

A revived British classic

Bun cha, along with pho and banh mi is something of a cult at the moment. I made it myself and now know why it’s so popular; It’s a perfect balance of ingredients, texture and taste. A brilliant dish.
