Rozanne says: "Anchovies can be bought in tins or glass bottles, preserved in salt and oil. They are an indispensable Pantry Pal in Italian cooking. They melt into dishes, imparting a rich, salty, savoury flavour. Don't be put off, as they aren't fishy and really work like a condiment. Be brave - try them! My dad is a pro at barbecuing, especially lamb. This may look like a large, daunting piece of meat, but it's actually very simple to cook and a hassle-free way to feed a crowd. The marinade and salsa are based on classic Italian flavour combinations and always work."
