Confit Duck Ragu is dish that needs no explanation other than if you desire a heartwarming dish that’s somewhat a hug in a bowl in the winter months, then this is most definitely it.
A comforting dish that resembles a carbonara but has been refined with the subtle flavour of saffron. Don’t feel the need to team this dish with anything, it is quite simply delicious on its own and simply must be served in abundance.
If you’re after an Easter treat of the non-chocolate variety I have the answer! Carbonara ( and real carbonara FYI, no cream please) twirled into birds nests with an oozy egg yolk in the middle. A lovely treat for the Easter weekend and bank holiday.
Last week I was invited to the launch of a new menu at House of GODO, a pasta delivery service and pop up restaurant in Piccadilly, London that serve Michelin Starred pasta dishes. It’s the Actor’s curse to get sick immediately before filming, and so, unable to move, the lovely team behind GODO delivered some dishes straight to my door….
This pasta dish is sinfully easy. It swiftly became one of my favourite dishes in Italy because of its simplicity and punchy flavours. Rather than using standard spaghetti or linguine, I like to use spelt spaghetti. It’s a little denser and nuttier in taste but it’s also high in protein and contains less gluten than regular wheat pasta.
