Hong shao pork, fava bean fritters & tea eggs

Growing up in Hong Kong, my family had a lot of Shanghainese friends with whom we would often feast on amazing meals from their region. I have such a soft spot for Shanghainese style cuisine. The food is all about slow cooking, seasonal and fresh ingredients braised in rice wine, vinegar, soy sauces and a large variety of spices.

Most of the recipes I try claim to be for ossibuchi alla milanese, yet they vary wildly – Anna Del Conte prefaces her take with the somewhat prickly claim that "as a loyal Milanese who strives to defend our highly sophisticated cuisine from the intrusion of foreign flavour, I can do no better than quote from the great 19th-century writer, Artusi: 'This is a dish that should be left to the Milanese.'"

Readers' recipe swap: slow-cooked

With gorgeously savoury ribs, a rib-sticking Italian soup, and a creamy Keralan fish curry on the menu, it was particularly tough to pick a favourite, but for sheer alchemy, James Connery's magically melting ox cheek ragu took some beating. Quite possibly the perfect dish for a wet winter weekend.

The winning recipe: braised ox cheek ragu I live in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain and the weather has been awful this winter, so I wanted to make something heart-warming, rich and luscious.
