OMG Gino D’Acampo
I had a little time at lunchtime on Thursday and found myself browsing the cookery and crafting mags in WH Smith. The magazine that jumped out at me as being full of recipes I would like to cook was ‘Woman and Home, Dinner Tonight’
I flipped through the magazine on my train ride home and was immediately struck by Gino D’Acampo, oh yes and by his recipes too (blush). I remember when Gino was the new boy on UKTV Food’s lunch time Good Food show. I no longer subscribe to Sky so don’t get to see Food TV – boo hoo! But as it was the only thing I watched it wasn’t good value for money.
Gino has a new book out, Gino’s Pasta and shared a few of the recipes in the magazine article.
This recipe for Fettucine with sweet onions, rosemary and minced lamb struck me as something I would really enjoy. It combines lamb mince with white wine, onions and grated carrots. Now, I’ve always served red wine with lamb, so this recipe intruiged me. And as Gino ‘begged’ me to try this recipe (he did really, it says so in the mag) I would have been rude not to give it a go.
Here is what my version of this recipe looked like. It was light and very tasty, I enjoyed the lack of tomatoes and we had olive bread to sop up the juices.
There are lots more simple and delicious recipes in this magazine so I would recommend that you buy a copy before it disappears from the shops! I am not getting paid to say this (unless, of course, W&H would like to pay me lol!) I just want to share a good buy with my blog buddies 🙂
