Ham and pea savoury tart

Ham and pea savoury tart

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour A simple and super easy ham and pea savoury tart. It’s an amazing flavour combination. Ham, peas and cream is one of my most favourite pasta sauces ever. And it works amazingly well as a tart or quiche filling too. I came up with the idea for this tart for the

Rustic soft rolls

Rustic soft rolls

These rustic soft rolls made with whole wheat flour are simply the perfect companion to any dish. They require only seven ingredients and are so simple to make, so if you are a bread beginner this is the recipe for you (but those more experienced may want to give it a go as well, as they are simply delicious). I came

Protected: Zuppa inglese

In partnership with Vico Food Box,  Italian food at low prices with free shipping throughout Europe Let’s face it. Italians cannot survive abroad without ‘their’ Italian food. It’s some sort of lifeline, we cannot function for long periods of time without ‘our’ pasta, pizza and lots of local delicatessen that we grew up with. Memories of flavours, moments, family and friends

Rum, raisin and pine nut cookies

Rum, raisin and pine nut cookies

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour Plus orange, oats and wholemeal flour, but the title would have been too long. Cookies are notoriously easy to make and notoriously good to eat. I particularly like those who are crisp edged but a little chewy in the middle and there are a couple of flavour combinations that I would

Chestnut and pear cake (gluten free) - The Italian baker

Chestnut and pear cake (gluten free) - The Italian baker

There are some smells and flavours that immediately remind us of a season. Summer tastes of strawberries, spring reminds me of early cherries, and winter has a strong chocolate flavour (possibly with cream and extra cocoa powder on top). As for autumn, although pumpkin spice and pumpkins of all sorts are now everywhere and would probably be the go-to choice for

Carrot and ginger spritzer tarts - The Italian baker

Carrot and ginger spritzer tarts - The Italian baker

#EatYourCocktails my grandma used to say. Ok, no. But. These carrot and ginger spritzer tarts are inspired by a cocktail recipe. Actually, a mocktail. A few months ago, I found a recipe for a carrot and ginger “spritzer” in a magazine made with well, carrot juice, ginger beer and lemon juice. It caught my attention, particularly because I really love ginger beer and

Marses - The Italian baker

Marses - The Italian baker

When I was a kid, my mum used to make a traybake made with melted mars bars and puffed rice, all simply mixed together and let to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. It was simple, quick and really, really indulgent. Definitely a children's favourite and a party 'must have'. The other day I was looking for some

The Italian breakfast: cappuccino and croissant (or ‘cornetto’) - The Italian baker

The Italian breakfast: cappuccino and croissant (or ‘cornetto’) - The Italian baker

I love breakfast. Sweet. Savoury. Sweet and savoury. Bring it on. Nowadays, I often eat cereals with nuts and fresh fruit, accompanied by yogurt or milk, or oats. But when I visit my family and friends in Italy, this is never the case. Whenever I'm in Italy, I go back to an old habit, and I do what most people do

Rainbow chard and smoky mushroom savoury tart - The Italian baker

Rainbow chard and smoky mushroom savoury tart - The Italian baker

Springtime brings back to the table a huge variety of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables that are usually not available during wintertime (or well, most of the times they’re available anyway but don’t really taste as good as they do when they’re in season). As well as some excitement. And a long list of bakes. And…rainbow chard. One of my

The definitive fennel, olive and spinach pesto tart - The Italian baker

The definitive fennel, olive and spinach pesto tart - The Italian baker

One of my favourite comfort foods? Savoury tarts. The choice of fillings is endless, and they are damn easy, damn delicious. Well, until your Italian grandma appears in your dreams and tells you ‘What? Ready-made puff pastry? Shame on you. And what are you going to do with all that crap on top? That’s not good for you.’ Ok nonna, fair enough. Now,

Sourdough pizza - The Italian baker

Sourdough pizza - The Italian baker

I come from a pizza loving family. My mum has always been making homemade pizza from scratch, that's probably one of her favourite 'bakes'. As a kid, the moment she would start rolling out the dough was one happy happy happy one. She would always bake a large tray of pizza, sometimes even two, which was always delicious and filled
