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.

Spaghetti with Pork and Fennel Ragu

There are times in my kitchen when I have to do the ‘food‘ dance, which translates to ‘this meal is incredible’ and yes, this one always gets my hips moving.  Already incredible and full of flavour, add more fennel if you love the taste, but most importantly, this dish is was born to share.

Whitebait & Scallop Ravioli – Limoncello & Dill Sauce

Whitebait is fishy gold as far as I’m concerned and when it comes to scallops the season isn’t very long.  This recipe is not only top notch delicious, but also ensures your treasure goes a long, long way.

This was my recent Boxing Day dish and I served it to a genuine bonafide seafood hater, who once the plate was licked clean, presented their ‘Can I have some more’ Oliver Twist eyes!

Pasta does take a little time to prepare, but when it does, it is so very worth it.  I have to say a big thanks to Cam Duff for his generous donation of Whitebait!
