Pork, sweet potato and miso soup (tonjiru) | This porky soup is a hearty winter dish that’s popular in Japan – you could make it using chunks of pork belly or small pieces of pork spare ribs cut through the bone, but you’d need to increase the cooking time accordingly. You could even use pieces of chicken thigh fillet; this is a highly adaptable recipe. For a meal in a hurry, you can’t beat using the frozen, thinly sliced pork belly you find in the freezer section of good Asian grocers. It’s…

Bollito misto served with mustard fruits and salsa verde | This may sounds unappealing – an array of boiled meats cooked in the same broth – but if you can get hold of excellent–quality raw ingredients, the results are astonishingly good. Simply use water if you don’t have any stock handy - the meats will flavour it as they cook. Traditionally, the cooking broth would be eaten as a soup for that meal or another one later on.
