Gnocchi with Gorgonzola & Prosciutto

Gnocchi is a fantastic carrier of flavour – and you don’t get more flavoursome than blue cheese and prosciutto.

There’s a lot of misconceptions about the difficulty when making gnocchi – in truth, it’s easier than you may think, consists of very few ingredients and it one of those things that tastes one million times better when homemade. Granted, it takes a little time, but this is time that should be used to unwind. Get comfy, put on a good podcast or record and take your time to shape the gnocchi. There is very little more rewarding.

Steak & Chimichurri

This South American dressing on rare steak is a treat – one you should have every night of the week, if possible.

Risotto Bianco

Cheesy and creamy, Risotto Bianco is a classic dish that cane be utilised in a number of ways.

To take the time to make a risotto, enacting patience… and pouring double the measure of wine so I can drink half while cooking. Right?

Nachos are my guilty pleasure. Hell, no. They’re actually just a pleasure. There is zero guilt here. This recipe has quite a few elements, all complementing one another but the star… the star of the dish has to be the chorizo – get good quality chorizo and cook it this way and you may never want chorizo cooked any other way again.

Hickory Salmon & Greens

The intense smokiness from the rub complements the salmon perfectly.

Salmon is such a versatile fish – whether it be smoked, poached, pan-fried or baked, it provides an incredible canvas for us to utilise. In this recipe, I’ve put together a deep, smokey spice mix that coats the salmon, creating a crust, and served it with a garlicky spring onion dressing.
