Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Minestrone

    • lou_weez on October 02, 2018

      My kids loved this but I wasn't blown away. I won't be making this again.

  • Pistachio pasta

    • Astrid5555 on September 01, 2018

      So good! Perfect for tomatoes at the height of their season, nice texture from the pistachios. Also, comes together very quickly. Jamie is back!

  • Aubergine & black chickpea orecchiette

    • Astrid5555 on November 02, 2018

      Big disappointment as written, very bland and dry. Doctored it up with lots of parsley, butter and Parmesan cheese to make it edible. Boys refused to try it and had pasta in bianco.

  • Corteccia

    • valerianz on September 09, 2018

      Liked it, very fresh and full of flavour, good way to make hubby eat broccoli :)

  • Chicken bastardo

    • SoulRae on December 30, 2018

      Oh my! This was on another level of yummy good. It's going to be next Sunday's lunch at my mummy's, since the polenta element compensates her gluten intolerance. This means she can tuck into the same meal as everyone else and not feel left out.

  • Chicken skewers

    • Zosia on November 07, 2018

      The prosciutto-wrapped chicken thighs stuffed with salsa verde were delicious little flavour bombs that I will definitely make again. I threaded only 3 or 4 thighs on each pair of skewers so when they were sliced in half after cooking, each skewer held a serving of 1.5 or 2 thighs. The recipe timing didn't quite work for me as the chicken took 55 minutes, the potatoes were done in 40 min and the tomatoes (I didn't peel them) in 30, something to adjust next time.

  • Carrot caponata

    • KarinaFrancis on December 24, 2018

      A great side dish. I wasn’t sure the carrots would cook in the frypan so I gave them a quick blanch, not sure if this was a good idea or not as the carrot flavour wasn’t as concentrated as I hoped but still delicious, with the right sweet and sour notes. Would make again.

  • Mozzarella bread

    • Astrid5555 on September 14, 2018

      Since I made this bread as part of spread for Aperitivo with the neighbours I cheated and used store-bought pizza dough, but made the filling as written. Things went wrong when I tried to cut my rolled-up dough. The filling oozed out and was all over the place and the little swirls I saw in the book were big batches of dough. I am sure the pizza dough did not help, but in the end I succeeded and had some filled bread rolls. Delicious though, will definitely make again with the correct dough from this recipe.

  • Oozy polenta

    • Astrid5555 on January 13, 2019

      I have been winging my polenta for years, but I decided to give this one a try and it did not disappoint. Perfect polenta/butter/Parmesan cheese ratio. Did not use coarse polenta but instant polenta since I was pressed on time, still delicious!
