This is the perfect party cocktail: colourful, delicate and.. plentiful! The drink just looks gorgeous with all those fruit pieces, whose sweetness partly masks the taste of the alcohol in it.

Salted codfish balls

Salted codfish balls

'Baccalà' is the Italian name for dried and salted codfish, an essential ingredient in many culinary traditions. Worldwide, Portugal ranks number one in its consumption, but Italy follows closely after with its many traditional recipes: 'baccalà alla lucana', 'alla cosentina', 'alla siciliana', etc.. Because of the preservation process, this fish needs many hours of soaking to get rid of the salt and to rehydrate the flesh. Here we suggest a simple, delicious recipe, something children will love and an ideal buffet component too!

Sun dried tomatoes with pecorino & broad beans

This recipe couldn't be more representative of culinary Italian culture: broad beans (long described as 'the poor man's meat' because of their high protein and iron content) are widely used, especially in the south of Italy; sun dried tomatoes, originating from the smart thinking of the farmers, who had to find a way to preserve the produce for colder seasons; and Pecorino Romano, a product made from sheep's milk, mostly produced in Sardinia.
