Duck ‘in Salsa’ with Radicchio (Anatra in Salsa con Radicchio di Treviso)

But once in a while I discover a new food blog that I really like, and one of those is Stefano’s Italian Home Cooking. After trying his hand at being a cookbook writer and chef, he now teaches Italian cooking classes. The recipes he posts are rooted deeply in Italian culinary tradition, although he does modernize them.

The Yorkshire pudding springs to mind – just a little too tasty and conveniently shaped for its own good; the Scotch egg suffers from a similar problem.

Jamie Oliver reckons it's "obviously the type of food that a hunter's wife cooks for her fella [!] When he gets back from a hard morning spent in the countryside", but I suspect it's more likely to have been originally made with rabbit or game birds – the slow, gentle braise would be the ideal treatment for such tasty, but potentially dry and stringy, meats. As with so many Italian classics, arguing about the animal used is only the beginning. Roasted Garlic.

I guess adding the word “French” makes things seem more appealing…unless they’re using French chocolate or French watermelon, then they have the right to call it that, and I’ll allow it.
