Pasta undoubtedly comes with a huge feel-good factor, so our bonus pasta section with favourite recipes comes just in time for the impending cooler weather. We hope it inspires you!
We have other Italian works of art this issue, too, including the ultimate lasagne, spectacular pizzas and luxurious tiramisu. These are classic dishes for a reason – they are just as celebrated here as they are in their birthplace on the other side of the globe.
Elswhere, Ray McVinnie transports us to Venice with his delicious cicchetti snacks, which can do duty as canapes or entrees, and Celia Harvey takes a leisurely Italian tour with her slow-cooked creations.
Back to our shores – now’s the time we’re looking for ways to enjoy the all-too-short feijoa season (lucky people will have a glut on their trees). We have stunning dessert ideas, such as feijoa, chocolate and ginger pudding, as well as sweet suggestions for the beautiful tamarillo.
PS Check out our fantastic new cookbook, The Seasonal Cook, in association with Kenwood. It’s a must-buy for food lovers and a great idea for Mother’s Day, too.
