  • Grilled plums on toasted panettone with honeyed ricotta and mint syrup

    Panettone is a light, airy Italian version of a fruit cake, usually eaten at Christmas and Easter. It varies slightly from region to region but generally is studded with raisins and fruit peel. My favourite brand is called Dal Forno (available from specialty food stores). It is fabulous eaten on its own with an espresso or sweet liqueur, or lightly toasted as I have done in this recipe.

  • Little chocolate whisky cakes

    These little dark cakes are sized to share, but you could also bake them in Texas muffin tins – just shorten the cooking time. Recipes and styling by Fiona Hugues. Photography by Jani Shepherd; Gatherum Collectif.

  • Walnut and blue cheese tart

    This rich, textured, buttery tart is made sweet with slow-cooked onions and sharp with knobs of blue cheese – a great combination.
