RAINBOW TROUT AND GIANT COUSCOUS WARM SALAD

Looking at the calendar this morning gave me a true shock … How are we at the end of July already? Days and weeks are slipping away from me lately. I realised it had been a couple of weeks since I tested and refined my July recipe for Spurtle readers, so I decided today was the time to strap myself to a chair and finally type it all up – it is a good one!

ASPARAGUS, POTATO, AND GOAT'S CHEESE SAVOURY TART

Asparagus is one of my absolute favourite ingredients – as well as being one of the many ingredients I discovered after moving to the UK. Growing up in Italy, we mostly had white asparagus and, in particular, the local variety called Asparago di Bassano. Ten years on, springtime has now become for me synonymous with asparagus, and I really relish the freshness and versatility of this wonder-vegetable.

TRADITIONAL POTATO GNOCCHI WITH BUTTER AND SAGE DRESSING

In Italian we have a saying which goes: Giovedí gnocchi, venerdí pesce, sabato trippa (Thursday gnocchi, Friday fish, Saturday tripe). Gnocchi was traditionally a dish which was cooked and eaten on a Thursday to store up a starchier, more calorific meal before the conventionally Catholic meat-free Friday.

NEW FACE OF SPURTLE FOOD

Hi! My name is Giada Canderle and I’m an Italian expat currently living in Edinburgh.

My food blog and a separate series of recipes starting in the Spurtle over the coming months are the result of my growing passion for cooking and baking (and eating!) over the last 10 years.

Food has been in my blood since I was a little girl, with big family meals being one of the fondest memories of my time back home. I see food as a way to bring people together and to express our love and care for others.
