Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Christmas vegetarian recipes

The versatility of vegetarian dishes means they can be served alongside meat and seafood, or enjoyed simply as they are. With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve put together some of our favourite vegetarian recipes to appease both herbivores and carnivores alike.

Baci


"I found this recipe with no title, scratched down on a random page in the back of my recipe book," says Ingram. "So few ingredients could only be those little kisses of goodness, which instantly evoke memories of my time spent in an exceptional Italian kitchen."

You'll need

75 gm roasted peeled hazelnuts 75 gm hazelnut meal 50 gm Dutch-process cocoa 125 gm caster sugar 100 gm eggwhite (from about 3 eggs) 30 gm plain flour 100 gm dark chocolate (60%-66% cocoa solids)

Method

  • 01
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper. Process hazelnuts in a food processor to a fine powder and transfer to a bowl. Add hazelnut meal, cocoa, sugar and flour, and mix with your hands. Pour eggwhite into dry ingredients and use your hands to form a loose batter. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm fluted nozzle and pipe 22 teardrop shapes of 3cm diameter and 4cm high onto the prepared tray, leaving about 4cm between each. Stand until set (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Bake baci until the outsides feel crisp but the centres are still soft (15-20 minutes). Cool on tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 03
  • Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (4 minutes), dip baci bases into chocolate and stick pairs together, then refrigerate to set (10 minutes). Store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to a week.
