A Taste of Italy
Bring the taste of Italian home cooking into your kitchen with these delicious recipes by chef Theo Randall from his new cookbook The Italian Pantry.As a child chef Theo Randall remembers his mother’s pantry filled to the brim with an amazing array of different ingredients, mostly procured from summer holidays spent in southern France and Italy. Visits to vineyards and food markets would often mean packing various bottles and jars of the best quality olive oil, wine, cheese and other delicacies into the trailer and, once full, moving to the boot and footwells of the car. Nowadays we don’t have to travel so far to obtain high-quality produce from small artisan outlets, but Theo believes the perfect pantry should always have some key Italian ingredients.
Here’s a selection of the mouth watering recipes featured in this issue to whet your appetite.
- Polenta, Pistachio and Orange Cake
- Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Olives
