Thankfully unlike Jamie you don't mix and serve your food in chipped and cracked crockery. I remember watching him cooking in his shed with pretty, old bowls well studded with salmonella traps!

Oh God that makes me sound about 100 doesn't it? I love well worn crockery, err just not mixing raw eggs, chicken, meat etc in it then serving salad in the same bowl.

It was Mr Oliver who also put me onto this technique. There's a wonderful recipe in his Italian book for a cauliflower risotto, which is in danger of being bland until you spark it up with a chilli pangritata.

The results are wonderful, particularly the contrast in textures between the creamy, soft risotto and the crunchy chilli breadcrumbs. And it's wonderful poverty food of course.

I have to admit I'm still charmed by Oliver when I see him on TV over here. Never heard of it before, bu this dish sounds incredible. I am making this!!

I too love Jamie - even with all the trappings of (uber!) success his is still *the* most infectious, burning, of passions for cooking today. Have you seen his garden? It's exquisite and incredibly productive...I wish...Ricki, you'll love this, I just know it. On a tray of roasted veg, it's inspired (make /loads/ more though) and Kathryn's mention of that cauli risotto sounds bloody good, too.

Pangritata is awesome for livening up dishes! And I love your foglie pasta, I can rarely find it.

Memo to me:

Come to Vic Market with you, some time.

Beautiful.

Johanna

A great pantry dish - sounds much easier than half the meals Jamie seemed to get these people making on his recent show!

I love your recommendations for procuring rosemary - we have a small bush but I still look longingly at a neighbouring property with a row of rosemary bushes out the front - I think they are meant to be ornamental but they do seem to tempt phantom snippers in the night!

Christina

I have not seen Jaimie's garden--if I did, I would probably want to build myself a little shed and move right in.

I've also never made pangritata, though it is now on my list of to-dos. Yum.

Does rosemary grow like a weed there as it does here?

holler

I am liking this one a lot! So simple and tasty.

chelsea

Well, I may just have to have pasta for dinner tonight... It warms the belly just looking at those lovely pics.

Carson

ditto for the Jamie O remarks I agree with both sentiments :)
and another PCC*! You know I'm a sucker for them. *Adds to list*

Pangritata looks like a great idea but where is the garlic? Could/should I add it to the bread, anchovies and rosemary?

Lucy

Hi mp - yes, add a clove then. There's no mention of garlic in the recipe because the list for The Pantry Challenge did not allow its use. Normally I add 1 clove, peeled and chopped to the mixture before it gets whizzed to crumbs in the processor. Hope you enjoy it - delicious and dead easy.

mp

Ah, the challenge rules, I see. I love garlic, so I'll definitely try the pangritata with it.

neil

I love the sound of this! My Polish wife uses fried breadcrumbs for a few dishes, but making them more savoury, nice touch.

Antonella

just so you know, the correct word is pangrattato, which means grated bread (from a loaf of stale bread, of course)
;-)
