Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Excellent info team..... :tu: All taken on board. I have just looked at the jar I bought in Ischia, the brand is Grand'Italia. It has an over label in Italian with the ingredients. Grana Padano and pecorino romano are the cheeses but interestingly..... it was made under licence by the Dutch in Italy, the original ingredients label is in either Polish, Croatian or another slav language. On opening the jar there is an overwhelming aroma of the freshest basil. I will certainly be making my own salsa verde :tu: :tu:

On another Italian item.....Taralli which are a pastry 'nibble' with drinks, we were served them in Italy and we bought 3 different ones home, rosemary, fennel seeds and black pepper. I notice that Lidl are selling the rosemary ones this week. Personally the fennel seed ones are my fave. Mr. Z is a pastry lover so these are right up his street.https://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/rec ... -biscuits/

I've been doing some googling and found lots of variations ... including one with mint leaves which sounds delicious too! Don't know why I've not googled before ... always just stuck to Marcella H's recipe until now.

I'm making the MH lemon version tomorrow to have with some roasted chicken thighs, roasted tomatoes and chopped preserved lemons ... probably with a herby rice.
