Italian Easter tart

"This is a traditional tart eaten in Naples at Easter," says Ingram. "The legend goes that a mermaid called Parthenope in the Gulf of Napoli would sing to celebrate the arrival of spring each year. One year, to say thank you, the Neapolitans offered her gifts of ricotta, flour, eggs, wheat, perfumed orange flowers and spices. She took them to her kingdom under the sea, where the gods made them into a cake. I love to add nibs of chocolate to Parthenope cake because I think it marries nicely with the candied orange and sultanas, but, really, do you need an excuse to add chocolate to anything?" Start this recipe a day ahead to prepare the pastry and soak the sultanas.

Apple and cinnamon hot cross buns

The mix of candied apple and dried apple combined with a sticky cinnamon glaze provides a new twist on an old favourite. These buns are equally good served warm on the day of baking, or several days later, toasted, with lashings of butter.

Chicken paillards with rosemary and capers


You'll need

4 chicken breast fillets (about 180gm each) 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 1 tbsp chopped rosemary 1 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp salted capers, rinsed and drained 150 ml dry white wine 10 gm butter, optional To serve: roasted chat potatoes and steamed baby green beans

Method

  • 01
  • Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally, then cover with a sheet of plastic wrap and, using the flat side of a meat mallet, flatten until 5mm thick. Combine chicken, garlic, 3 tsp rosemary and 1 tbsp olive oil in a ceramic or glass bowl, season to taste, then cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • 02
  • Heat a heavy-based frying pan over high heat until hot, add oil to coat base and cook chicken for 2 minutes on each side, then remove and set aside. Add capers and remaining rosemary to pan and cook for 1 minute, then add wine, scraping bottom of pan to remove any cooked pieces, and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until slightly reduced and syrupy. Stir in butter, if using, and cook for another minute or until mixture thickens and is glossy. Return chicken to pan and cook for 1 minute or until warmed through.
  • 03
  • Serve chicken paillards drizzled with sauce, with roast chat potatoes and steamed baby beans to the side.
