Pinsa Romana with Calabrian Peperoncini, Fior di Latte, Mushrooms

Pinsa Romana with Calabrian Peperoncini, Fior di Latte, Mushrooms

The Italian region of Calabria is famous for sprawling beaches with turquoise water, mountains, rolling hills, orange and lemon trees, yet it remains one of the least visited regions. Agriculture is strong in this area and the climate is perfect for growing beautiful spicy chilli peppers that feature in lots of the regional cuisine. They are delicious when used in pasta sauces, stews, used to top grilled cheese or as I've done here on top of our amazing hand-stretched pinsa romana pizza bases.

So here's a simple recipe using mushrooms, but they would be a great addition to any of your favourite pizza toppings.

Thai Beef Noodle Salad
Thai Beef Noodle Salad

I absolutely adore this salad, it's vibrant, fresh and combines all the bold flavours of Thai cuisine. The tasty seared beef elevates this dish to a main course balanced by light noodles, crunchy vegetables, fragrant herbs and umami rich dressing.

Shawarma is up there as one of my favourites, it's so tasty and the hands down winner over the Turkish Doner or the Greek Gyros. Although it's traditionally cooked on a large skewer, rotisserie style, it's easily possible to recreate this fantastic street food classic at home.

Not everyone knows that Spain has a huge cider-drinking culture, but in the Northern region of Asturias there are plenty of apple orchards and sidra is a really popular drink. In the bars of Asturias, the waiters pour cider with a flourish - holding the cider bottle with one hand, a couple of feet above their heads, and pouring it into special glasses that are held below their waists with the other hand. This takes a fair bit of practice and unless you're happy to mop the floor up afterwards, not recommended to try at home!
