Pappa al pomodoro is usually made in summer when tomatoes are ripe and plentiful, but this version, a ‘best-ever’, using both canned and roasted vine tomatoes, is scented and richly flavoured, chunky and textural, and is good at any time of year. Especially now when there is a nip in the air.
This is hardly a recipe, just a combination of delicious ingredients which are somehow more gorgeously decadent when combined.
I’m addicted to curry! My favourite time to eat it is randomly in the morning – nothing like a hearty dose of leftovers to kick start the day!
At my house we all fell in love with this dish at the first mouthful. The clean acidity of apple salad mingling with crème fraîche and sweet juicy pork cutlets had us all in raptures.
I love this freshly tossed, when everything’s all perky and standing to attention, the onion crunchy, the lemon biting fresh and the chilli gnawing the back of you throat …
Preserved lemon and spices really work their magic on lamb, giving it a spicy sweetness which tastes just as good as it smells during cooking.
