Top chef Nello Russo shares his recipe for amaretto semifreddo
Last time, Italian chef Nello Russo, from Angelo's Ristorante, educated us in the perfect aubergine recipe. This month, we're getting a lesson in something sweet.
With more of us than ever cooking and entertaining at home, the pressure is on to impress your guests (and yourself) with a tasty and satisfying meal.
But in the interests of not driving yourself mad, it's always good to have a simple recipe. So we've turned to Nello Russo, the country's best Italian chef, for inspiration.
In May, Nello, who wows diners at Angelo's Ristorante in West Sunniside and a new premises in East Rainton, showed us how to give the simple aubergine the start treatment.
