To celebrate National Vegetarian week we are posting some recipes that will tempt even the most dedicated carnivores to ditch the meat and enjoy some fresh, in-season, flavourful and health giving veg. Our first is a delicious and stylish dish where the humble courgette is the star of the show. It is called Courgette and Courgette Flower Carpaccio with Ricotta and it tastes awesome!

This is light and lovely with a delicious floral sweetness from the melon. To make the salad even prettier, tear a few bright yellow courgette flowers into the salad if you have them. We have a small melon baller to make the pearls but if you don't have one simply cut the melon into small cubes instead.


It is cool and rainy yet again, and although we have had some warm sunny days this week, most of May and early June have been pretty miserable regarding weather. During one stretch of warm temperatures when we were able to finally be out in the garden most of the day, we threw together this fresh, light salad as a starter for our dinner. It is easy to assemble salad for any time of the year as long as you have fresh fennel and asparagus, but especially enjoyable during the long hot days of summer. The asparagus at the local market was thicker than we had hoped for, so we used a vegetable peeler to shave thin slices from the stems. If your asparagus is thin, you can cut the stems in half lengthwise, leaving the tips whole.


At Pastalli Italian Restaurant, we have published our new Catering menu on our website. It is broad and should have something for just about everybody for every occasion. However, if you want something that is not listed, we would be happy to work with you to provide the cuisine of your choice.
