“In Italy, lasagne is always made with meat, but I often swap it for romanesco, Roman cauliflower, which I cook beyond the point of doneness,” says Cicolini. “The longer cooking time pushes the romanesco past its natural sweetness and pulls out all these savoury flavours. It’s a complex dish with layered flavours to the salt coming from the anchovies and Parmigiano-Reggiano.”
It's hard to improve on a classic. For our cheeseburgers, we've stuck to a simple patty recipe and added a few flourishes in the trimmings: two cheeses, a slick of sriracha and a chilli-flecked coleslaw. It's a surefire winner.
