Gnocchi has a reputation for being lots of work with unpredictable results. What we all want is soft little pillows of pasta eager to soak up whatever sauce we throw at it, yet so often it can turn out chewy. I have Donna Hay to thank for introducing me to gnocchi made with ricotta instead of potatoes, and it’s a dream come true!

Schiacciata is a Tuscan-style flatbread traditionally made with flour, yeast, salt and water – I’ve added a little rosemary for variety. It’s baked in the oven then brushed with olive oil once it comes out. Use wild mushrooms if available but otherwise substitute whatever mushrooms you have access to. Lardo is a salami that has been made since the time of the Ancient Romans from cured fat, rosemary and spices. Use fresh broad beans in season; at other times, use frozen ones, which are just as good.
These cheesy parmesan and spinach baked eggs make a delicious savoury breakfast perfect for any day of the week. From start to finish, this tasty dish can be ready in 20 minutes - giving you a quick and easy recipe you'll want again and again.
Also known as flammekueche, this is kind of a pizza and sort of a tart and originates from the Alsace region of France. Confusion aside, what’s certain is that one piece is never enough – there’s something about this creamy, bacony creation that inspires gluttony. This is my version of a dish that’s perfect for feeding a crowd. I add a little autumnal twist with thyme, onions and extra cheese, and sometimes even sliced mushrooms. Serve it in slices like a pizza or enjoy it as a light meal with a green leafy salad on the side. Photography by Jani Shepherd; Gatherum Collectif.
