Italian is a great cuisine that is full of great recipes for both savoury and sweet, with dishes like pizza, spaghetti, pesto, risotto, gnocchi and tiramisu.
An Italian classic, pasta at its finest. Just fry some bacon or pancetta, add the tomatoes and spices and serve. Delicious!
An authentic Italian cake in less than an hour? Yes, please! This irresistible sponge is enriched with ricotta and studded with pieces of chocolate. Even better, it's ready in 50 minutes.
Ciabatta bread is a classic from Italy that has lots of air pockets and a great crispy crust. This recipe has been adapted to be made in a bread maker.
My Italian grandmother never put cream in her Carbonara sauce when she made it - she said it wasn't the way it was supposed to be made. This is the way.
Ciabatta is a fantastic slightly sour Italian bread. You don't have to use a baking stone to cook the bread, but I like to.
