Chorizo, Courgette & Pea Risotto

I’ve made a fair few risottos over the years but this quite possibly the nicest risotto I’ve ever made! I’ve tried to get as close to authentically Italian as I can, but since I’m using Spanish Chorizo I’ve already used some creative licence.

Olive, Rosemary & Garlic Focaccia

Focaccia is a classic Italian bread and it’s one of my absolute favourite breads to not only eat, but to make too! It feels really indulgent because of the large quantities of olive oil that is used so, even though they say olive oil is better for you, it’s definitely not a bread for when you’re trying to watch the waistline. It’s wonderfully versatile too, as it can be used…
