Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Merle's chicken, mushroom and leek pot pies

    • e_ballad on September 05, 2017

      Meh. This felt 'stodgy' due to its heaviness & blandness. Perhaps halving the cream might make the other flavours shine.

  • Asparagus, Taleggio and leek tart

    • e_ballad on November 09, 2016

      This was ok, nothing more nothing less. The recipe delivered, but I think it needed more zip as it was quite a heavy quiche. If making this again, I think layering the asparagus on after pouring the custard would create a nicer presentation.

  • Pumpkin and cauliflower risotto

    • e_ballad on August 15, 2016

      Using the technique outlined in the recipe, the veggies turned to mush with no texture to speak of. Would probably have benefited from roasting both the pumpkin & cauliflower, with the caramelisation likely improving the overall flavour profile. If this is the author's "favourite risotto ever", I'm somewhat concerned.

  • Asparagus risotto

    • e_ballad on November 05, 2016

      Great recipe. Insanely green, but with enough of a cheesy hit for the toddler to go back for seconds. As a family of big eaters, this recipe definitely makes closer to 6x large serves than the 4x serves indicated. As a disclaimer, I did deviate slightly from the recipe by throwing in a very small amount of leftover cooked chicken - can strongly recommend this addition!

  • Pork and fennel sausages with creamy potato bake

    • e_ballad on October 31, 2017

      The “Creamy potato bake” comprises of sliced potatoes swimming in a soup of cream with a lovely layer of burnt offerings on top. Would recommend reducing the liquid component significantly & covering with foil to prevent burning for at least half the cooking time. The sausage dish was ok, with the verjuice in the onions cutting through the richness of the sausages.

Publishers Text

Guy Mirabella is a man of many passions. The way he cooks and writes about food is a reflection of them all: art, design, film, travel, music, his Sicilian heritage and his family. Hungry is a lavish tribute to the food and spirit of generosity with which Guy approaches cooking. The recipes are a contemporary take on Italian home-style cooking - the food that Guy makes with so much care at home and at his cafe, where he cooks for the customers he treats like family. From the savoury counter choose broad beans, zucchini, fior de latte and mint in a fresh salad, or for something more substantial, try the stuffed squid bursting with chorizo, quinoa and spices. From the sweet counter the elaborate tutu trifle is a dramatic statement for any feast with its layers of cream, custard, fruit and Guy's magical 'tutu' topping. Hungry will delight. It is a cookbook with a difference, one to savour and inspire, full of warmth, beauty, and of delicious dishes to cook for the people you love.
