6 tbsp Amaretto liqueur
2 eggs, separated
250g/8¾oz mascarpone cheese

In a separate bowl beat together the egg yolks and sugar for about three minutes until thick and pale.
Add the mascarpone and beat until well mixed. Fold in the whipped cream gently with a metal spoon.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites quickly but gently into the cream mixture. Add the remaining liqueur, taking care not to lose the volume.
Dip each biscuit into the coffee liqueur mixture for about two seconds on each side and shake of the excess.
Cover the bottom of an eight individual 8cm/3in dessert glasses. Spread some of the cream mixture over the biscuits and then repeat the process again, using up the biscuits and finishing with a cream layer.
Smooth the surface and dust the top with the cocoa powder.
Refrigerate for about two hours or until firm. The longer it is left, the more the flavours will develop.
Gino D’Acampo Carbonara
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp unsalted butter
250g diced pancetta
6 tbsp freshly grated Pecorino cheese
4 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat and fry the pancetta for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy. Set aside.
Whisk the eggs and half the cheese in a bowl. Add the parsley and plenty of black pepper. Set aside.
Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling, salted water until al dente. Drain well and tip it back into the same pan.
Tip the contents of the pancetta pan into the pasta, then pour in the egg mixture. Mix everything together for 30 seconds with a wooden spoon. The heat from the pasta will be sufficient to cook the egg to a creamy coating.
Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with the remaining cheese sprinkled on top
SWORDFISH STEAKS & SAUTÉED POTATOES WITH GREMOLATA
1kg new potatoes, scrubbed
180ml olive oil
8 sprigs of fresh rosemary
6 garlic cloves, bruised with the back of a knife
4 x 175g swordfish steaks
FOR THE GREMOLATA
12 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 large garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1½ tablespoons capers, drained and roughly chopped
Juice and zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
100ml extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste
STEP BY STEP
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the potatoes for about 7 minutes then drain. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice in half lengthways.
Meanwhile, make the gremolata. Put the parsley, garlic, capers and lemon juice and zest in a medium bowl. Pour in the oil and stir to combine. The mixture should have the texture of a wet pesto. Season with salt. Set aside.
Heat 90ml of the oil in a large, high-sided frying pan or sauté pan over a medium to high heat. When very hot, add half the potatoes, cut-side down. Fry for about 1 minute then add the rosemary and 4 of the garlic cloves. Fry then potatoes for about 5 minutes each side or until golden and crisp. Transfer to kitchen paper to drain. Repeat with the remaining potatoes, topping up with more oil if needed. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining 90ml of the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When hot, add the remaining 2 garlic cloves. Gently lay the swordfish steaks in the pan and fry for 2 minutes each side, or until the fish is just cooked through. Season with salt.
Divide the potatoes among 4 serving plates and place the swordfish alongside. Drizzle over the gremolata.
