With the serene waters of Lake Garda, the unique beauty of Venice, and the classic Italian romance of Verona, this trip to Italy is the perfect combination of opera, culture and history.

1. Five Spice Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are not only cheaper than breasts cut they can be made much tastier. The secret of this recipe is in the slow cooking, which would leave a breast fillet fry and tasteless. When using thighs you end up with crispy skin and succulent, well flavoured flesh.

Serves 4

6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 large shallot, roughly chopped
1 tbsp minced fresh root ginger
4 tsp sugar
4 tbsp dark soy sauce
4 tbsp Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
8 boneless chicken thighs
100g (4oz) green beans, sliced into 2cm (1in) lengths
275g (10oz) mixed salad leaves
1 small red pepper, halved, seeded and diced
225g (8oz) cherry plum tomatoes, halved or quartered
2-3 tbsp vinaigrette
salt and freshly ground black pepper
very fine shreds of carrot and long thin fresh chives, to garnish

1 To make the marinade, place the garlic in a mini food processor or blender with the shallot, ginger and sugar, then blend to form a paste. Transfer to a small bowl and whisk in the soy sauce, Thai fish sauce, five-spice powder and several grinds of pepper.

2 Arrange the chicken thighs in a shallow dish and pour over the marinade, turning until well coated. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours is best, turning the chicken thighs several times in the marinade. Bring back to room temperature before cooking and wipe off any excess marinade with kitchen roll.

3 Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the oil to the pan, then place the chicken thighs in it skin-side down. Cook for 20-30 minutes until the skin is nice and crispy. Don’t be tempted to touch them while they are cooking or shake the pan occasionally just leave them alone and you will produce the most fantastic crisp skin and succulent flesh.

4 When you can see that the chicken thighs are nicely browned and that the flesh is almost but not quite cooked through. Turn them over and cook for another 5-6 minutes until completely cooked through and tender. Remove from the heat and leave to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes.

5 Blanch the green beans in a pan of boiling salted water for 1 minute until just tender, then drain and refresh under cold running water. Place the salad leaves in a large bowl with the blanched beans, red pepper and tomatoes. Season to taste and then add enough vinaigrette to lightly dress the salad and toss well. Divide among plates, then carve the chicken thighs into pieces and place on top. Garnish with the carrot shreds and chives, if liked.

2. BBQ CORN ON THE COB WITH CHILLI & CORIANDER BUTTER

125g butter , softened 1 small red chilli , deseeded 1 bunch fresh coriander 6 corn on the cob Salt and pepper

Place the butter , chilli and coriander in a blender and whizz until combined . Form into a sausage and wrap in clingfilm. Chill until needed.

Season the corn and place on the BBQ turning frequently for about 7-10 minutes. Serve with slices of the flavoured butter on top.

Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
