Vermicelli alla Sophia Loren: Rachel Roddy’s recipe for pasta with parsley pesto | A kitchen in Rome

The story starts with a pregnant woman stealing parsley from a garden. She gets caught by the owner, a furious ogress, who, as penance, makes the woman promise that one day she will hand over her child. The child...

Rachel Roddy’s favourite low-stir vegetable risotto recipe

‘Lord Leicester’, ‘Tall Telephone’, ‘Easy Peasy’, ‘Blue Bantam Dwarf’, ‘Mr Big’, ‘Kelvedon Wonder’, ‘Little Marvel’: all names of peas, and another reminder of how seed catalogues bring joy – especially if you don’t have a garden and idealise the...

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for Roman-style pizza rossa | A kitchen in Rome

Rachel Roddy's recipe for orzo with peas, herbs and parmesan | A kitchen in Rome

Damp, green and majestic clefts of rock, a wrong turn and a demonic row: the common denominators of every single car trip to meet a food producer are that we get lost and have a terrible argument. So common,...

Rachel Roddy's recipe for spaghetti with olive oil, tomato and anchovy | A kitchen in Rome
