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.

A Puglian dish of little fennel sausages stewed with waxy potatoes and lemon zest from Rick Stein’s ” Mediterranean Escapes”. If you cant get Luganega sausages ( try Italian delicatessans) then use meaty pork chipolatas and add a tsp of fennel seeds to the onions when you fry them.

This is from Rick Steins ” Coast to Coast”. The curried potatoes are only quite mildly spiced and he suggests serving this as a breakfast dish. You could always serve some Tomato Kasundi alongside.

Another Bangladeshi recipe from Rick Stein’s ” Far Eastern Odyssey”. They would use a local river fish could Rui, but you have to adapt to what is available. A firmer fish works best, other fish can be used but may break up a bit during cooking.
