Sausages with Parmesan Polenta (4)

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.

Fish Curry with Potatoes (6)

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.
