Biscotti are Italian twice-baked biscuits. They are quite dry and crispy and are a perfect accompaniment to dunk into coffee, crème brulées, mousses or pannacottas. Again these make a very tasty edible Christmas gift and look very attractive packaged in a jar tied with ribbon.

Risotto is always a popular dish in the restaurant and we usually have a verison on the menu. The sherry vinegar caramel works well with the vegetables and crispy potato rosti. It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world

This recipe originates from one of my all-time favourite cooks - Donal Skehan's minestrone soup. One of the many times I made this soup I accidentally put too much pasta in and as a result I was left with no actual soup.....just pasta. After debating whether to throw it out or keep it I decided to keep it and make use of it so I just tweaked the recipe a small bit and gave it my best!
This is a recipe from an old Italian cookbook that we have here at home. It's so simple and needs very little salmon per person. It looks and tastes a lot posher than it really is - perfect for supper with friends so! Use a mix of both green and white tagliatelle for added colour.

A good hearty meal that Richie Wilson promises you can whizz together in eight minutes...or at least he can!
