I recently visited the north of Italy where i returned to the same restaurant in Stresa on Lake Maggiore three times . Their seasonal special, home made sausages with chestnuts and polenta, was so tasty I had it twice. I haven’t been able to find a recipe for that dish, but this dish from ” Rick Stein’s Food Heroes” is a good second best. If you cannot get hold of Luganega sausages in your local Italian deli then any Italian sausages flavoured with garlic and fennel will do.
This is the first recipe i cooked from Claire Thomson’s eagerly awaited ” Home Cookery Year” which came out earlier this month. The book is divided into seasons so i am busy working my way through autumn recipes . Watch this space for a few more….
