Fragrant and colourful fresh egg pasta infused with saffron. Roll out in thin sheets with or without a pasta machine, then bake directly in a lasagne with bolognese or bechamel sauce; or make tagliatelle and serve with your favourite sauce.

Here chicken is roasted with a fig and pistachio couscous stuffing and basted with a spicy lemon marinade to keep the meat deliciously moist. A leafy salad with fresh oranges would make a great side dish.

A tart compote of rhubarb makes a nice contrast to this rich custard. While there is no way to completely streamline a crème brûlée, this special-occasion treat is lightened by the fruit and its use of less egg yolk and cream (which is reduced-fat to boot), yet still retains its rich indulgent nature.

Peeled pears poached in a white wine syrup. A vanilla bean, saffron threads and orange zest add incredible flavour and colour. Serve with crisp sweet biscuits on the side.
