Some of my best culinary experiences have come from my travels in Italy and it’s hard not to be inspired by a nation that is so passionate about its regional recipes and produce. With summer sunshine just around the corner, I want to arm you with a selection of simple recipes that are ideal for al fresco eating inspired by the Italian summer.

While spice-crusted lamb cooked until crisp and juicy may not be in any way traditionally Italian, the simple white bean salad it’s served alongside instantly evokes the flavours of Italian summer, heady with sweet tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. It’s a truly simple summer dish that takes minutes to make and delivers a really flavourful finish.
