Tuna with Sicilian Potato Salad (4)

I found this recipe for Tuna in ” Lobster & Chips” by Trish Hilferty, one of my go to fish cookbooks. She inherited it from Tom Norrington Davis and they both worked at the renowned Eagle in London. You need to use really fesh tuna and waxy potatoes such as Charlotte. The tuna could be replaced with swordfish or other robust meaty fish. The tuna will be medium rare which is the best way to eat it, but if you prefer cook it for a little longer.

Pasta with Brussels Sprouts, Cheese and Potato (8-12)

When my better half and I were in Italy recently he ate a dish called Pizzoccheri on a number of occasions. That dish originates from Valtellina in Lombary and includes buckwheat tagliatelle, potatoes, savoy cabbage and Taleggio or Fontina Cheese. I have not yet managed to find a local source of the pasta and though it can be ordered online I am sure the dried version is not the same. This is Nigella Lawson’s Anglo version from her book ” Nigellissima”.
