"Fried rice is one of my favourite Chinese dishes," says Pepperell. "This is an Italian spin on it using colatura di alici and speck. Colatura di alici can be a bit pricey, but for a special occasion your guests will love the flavour. If you can't find it you can use salted anchovies or a high-quality fish sauce instead."
Note Colatura di alici, an Italian unfermented fish sauce, is available from select delicatessens.
