For me starters should be a treat and Panko en-crusted crispy king prawns are a definite luxury. Served with a rich aioli and fresh chilli sauce there’s a perfect balance of punchy and delicate flavours.
Pasta alla Norma is one of my all-time favourite dishes. Easy enough to rustle up mid-week but when the best ingredients are used it makes an understated but incredibly delicious dinner party main. I’m sure there will be plenty of Italian grandmothers who will be livid at my interpretation of this classic Sicilian dish and for that I’m sorry (not sorry).
Crème Brulee, essentially a bowl of cold custard but somehow the combination of textures, flavours and the satisfying crack of the sugar elevates these humble ingredients to what is in my opinion the greatest....dessert….EVER!
