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.

Karaage - Japanese Fried Chicken with Sweet Miso and Sesame Slaw

Fried chicken is one of the true joys in life, it's heralded in many parts of the world and done differently wherever you go. The Japanese version is known as Chicken Karaage and it's absolutely delicious, particularly when dunked in some rich Kewpie mayonnaise, spiked with Japanese seven spice. I've served my Karaage with a simple slaw that I dressed with a really great sweet miso and sesame dressing and some plain rice.

If you've ever thought vegetarian food is slightly dull, hold on to your hats... this simple one-pot dish based on the humble chickpea absolutely packs in the flavour. The soft creamy chickpeas are cooked in a richly flavoured tomato sauce with a good splash of Fino sherry, dried chilli and smoked paprika. The dish is finished with roasted peppers, creamy aioli made with olive oil, a scattering of fresh parsley and a chunk of grilled sourdough.
