Amanda’s linguine vongole

“During a fantastic post-graduation summer in Milan, where Amanda set off (portfolio in hand) to find a job in the fashion industry, she and her friends fell in love with the food they discovered. A firm favourite – and something Amanda hasn’t quite managed to recreate since – was the bold and beautiful clam pasta. It’s an absolute belter of a dish, and much simpler to make than you might think. It’s a real celebration of the juice and flavour of clams, and once you know how, it’s a brilliantly quick and easy dish that’ll hit the spot on the flavour front, every time. I hope this recipe will help Amanda capture and bottle the fun of her youth. ”

Daisy’s macaroni cheese

“Macaroni cheese is a favourite comfort food for lots of people, and this version is inspired by Daisy’s Nan, Betty. Daisy was in the army, and she would always look forward to having this when she came home. It’s a closely guarded family recipe – and you’ll see why when you taste it! It’s cheesy, it’s gooey, and it’s packed with herby sautéed mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, streaky bacon and three types of cheese. If you want to go for the fully Betty effect, serve up with chipolata sausages alongside. ”

Pippa’s spaghetti Bolognese

“When Pippa was a child, she’d go to Devon with her grandparents, and they’d visit a restaurant called Luigi’s. Every time they go, they’d sit at the same table and she would choose spaghetti Bolognese. Gennaro’s recreation of this classic includes a mixture of beef and pork mince for maximum flavour, plus plenty of red wine and fresh herbs. ”

Sarah Millican’s Tuscan sausage & tomato pasta

“I’m here to show the queen of convenience food, Sarah Millican, just how easy it can be to create a from-scratch version of her favourite comfort food dish. Using best-quality sausages and tomatoes will give the sauce a real smack of flavour and depth. Combine that with a spank of acidity from the balsamic, Parmesan and fresh basil to finish, and it’s a real step up from the microwave meals that Sarah’s used to. Happy days! ”
