Nigel@Decanter World Wine Awards

A rather wary Nigel tasting at the Worx

If you have been wondering where Nigel has been over the past two lunchtimes, the answer is that he has been a member of the Loire panel for the Decanter World Wine Awards 2009. The tastings have been held at The Worx in Parsons Green. Sarah Ahmed (The wine detective), Chris Kissack (The wine doctor) and Jim Budd (regional chair for the Loire) were also on the Loire panel.

Ursula Ferrigno's Sunday lunches: forthcoming dates

Ursula making pasta

14th June Early Summer Ferrigno family favourites
Inspired by her grandmother’s passion for her family and the love that she channeled into her cooking, these recipes have been enjoyed for many, many years.

Gnocchi di patate con asparagi e piselli
Featherlight gnocchi with tender young asparagus, fresh peas and basil sauce – delicate flavours and very pretty on the plate!

Fave bruschetta con menta
Broad beans with mint – vibrant colours and flavour – a Neapolitan classic especially if the broad beans are young and tender. Delicious when set off with young goats cheese.

Saute di frutti di mare
Mixed seafood sauté – this dish is believed to have aphrodisiac qualities – find out for yourself! The finest quality seafood will be sourced for this dish.

Insalata mista
Radicchio & endive marinated and grilled salad – delicious digestive salad filled with subtle flavours.

Profiteroles filled with lemon cream
Featherlight profiteroles filled with lemon flavoured crème patissier – a mouthwatering concoction of flavours.

Caciocavallo – famous cheese from Puglia, hung in couples over a pole as if on horseback.

12th July Trattoria – classical weekend family dishes from around Italy

Spiedina alla Romana [Roman skewers]
Open textured country bread on skewers with buffalo mozzarella, roasted red peppers and basil.

Cannelloni with saffron sauce
Not only is the colour enticing but the filling is Ursula’s all time favourite,
a combination of artichoke hearts, ricotta and gorgonzola with, needless to say,
fresh home made pasta – rich and delicious.

Zucchini farcita
Slow baked courgettes with seasonal vegetables and mint make this versatile dish even more appealing. Every Italian family has their own special recipe.

Insalata mista
A salad of apples, frisee and asiagio cheese with RSJ’s special dressing

Apricoti farcita con gelati
Stuffed apricots with lemon ice cream.
