Summer Tomato Soup & Fried Basil Chips

This is the epitome of Italian dishes (locally known as Pappa al Pomodoro) and one of my favourite, favourite soup recipes.  Actually calling it a soup is like calling the Queen ‘a lady with a handbag!’  When it’s made slowly, with love this dish has enough magic to make you believe in the simplicity and majesty of Mother Nature’s bountiful pantry! Also, 12 million Italians can’t be wrong.  An opera in a bowl……..

The Best Tomato Sauce

For when you have an abundance of tomatoes (seasonal) or you want the best base for your pasta dish or pizza topping, this sauce is the queen when it comes to tomato excellence.  Take your time, add the love in the stirring and it will all come back on the palate – trust me.

Feta -or Chicken, Avocado & Cucumber Noodle Salad

When meat isn’t a requirement but “WOW!” is – this summer salad brings personality and texture. If you’re a meat eater add some cooked shredded chicken or a vegan can skip the feta and sprinkle over chickpeas (roasted chickpeas are divine) instead.

Mussels in a Creamy Guinness Sauce

The delicate, salty flavour and soft juicy flesh of the mussels paired with the earthy Guinness and creamy sauce, is just enough to send you to seafood heaven.  Don’t forget the crusty bread of course.
