Last week I went to another amazing BBC Good Food Show where I ate, drank and sampled a lot of great food. One of the best parts of the show is being able to watch celebrity chefs up close and learn the tricks of the trade..being so close that you can smell the food BUT you can’t taste it.
I came away with a million ideas as I always do when leaving foodie events and wanting to recreate all the recipes I’ve seen like Tom Kerridge’s beef with savoury brandy butter and shoestring fries as well as this summer pasta dish below as demonstrated over on the Stoves Live Cook Stage. The stage hosted some great chefs including Phil Vickery, Shelina Permaloo, Michael Caines and Cyrus Todiwala to name just a few. Stoves are also the kitchen appliance supplier to all the BBC Good Food Shows in 2015.
This dish screams summer to me, fresh peas, sage and melt in the mouth mozzarella come together to create a simple yet elegant dish with no need for accompaniments. I recreated it at home today and it was just as good as I anticipated.
You can get the recipe yourself here.
For once I didn’t amend the recipe at all other than throwing in a few sage flowers as they look pretty and taste good too..also I have a few thousand ( or so it seems ) in my garden. Sage is a seriously underrated herb in my opinion..it smells so incredibly good and you don’t need an awful lot for a great burst of flavour.
Here are some photos of my finished dish, I highly recommend you try it:
This recipe is simple to create and a flavour sensation.
* I was provided with supermarket vouchers to recreated this recipe at home.
