  • Crispy chicken thighs with blackberry vinaigrette

    A zingy sauce with barbecued meat is one of my favourite things. This vinaigrette delivers a sweet and sour piquancy. Try it – and this simple salad – with roast pork or shredded duck, too.

  • Roasted grape and pumpkin agrodolce platter

    Surprisingly, common table grapes relish some roasting time in the oven, transforming into little caramelly globes of flavour which, in this dish, burst sour-sweet deliciousness onto roasted pumpkin. A sprinkle of toasted seeds adds a final, lovely crunch.

  • Pasta with cinnamon and sausage sauce

    The original recipe from The Food of Love Cookery School uses a seashell-shaped pasta. But Nici prefers making corteccia, a pea-pod shape, as it’s faster, easier to make and will still capture the delicious sauce in all its nooks and crannies.
