From spiking a heady seafood broth to scenting delicate sweets, I love the unmistakable fragrance of saffron.

This dish borrows a little from Italy and a little from North Africa, but then again those Mediterranean borders have always been a little blurred.

This makes a delicious dessert with some Italian meringue, or a scoop of gelato or frozen yoghurt. You could also serve it with chilled vanilla custard, honey and shards of crisp, layered filo.

This is a pantry-inspired pasta, one I made when the cupboard was almost bare. It's common to fry the eggplant for a pasta like this, but blanching it makes for a much lighter dish, and the texture...

The peas are as much the star of this dish as the meatballs, and both go beautifully with the baked labna. This flavourful bake makes a great midweek meal.

Making your own ricotta might seem a big commitment, but it's actually a pretty simple and really quite rewarding process.

The olive oil in this fragrant, sticky and lemony cake gives it a large, moist crumb that's best enjoyed while still warm.

This is a delicious alternative to a regular Sunday roast and it presents so beautifully at the dinner table.

Rainbow trout is quite a robustly flavoured fish, which works perfectly with the sweet apples, smoky kaiserfleisch and the fragrant lemon and anise notes of the fennel paste.

This is a deliciously rich braise of meltingly tender pork that's full of smoky, earthy notes from the dried chillies and spices.

Mapo tofu is a classic Sichuan dish and a real favourite of mine. My version is really quick to put together and makes a great addition to a feast, or a perfect midweek meal with some greens and rice.

This version of butter chicken is quite mild, emphasising the beautifully fragrant spices and the deliciously intense sauce.

Infusing the stock with rosemary perfumes this risotto with beautiful flavour and it's a natural match for the smoky hock and pungent taleggio.

This rustic lamb braise is a dish we've been cooking at Melbourne's Mr Wolf, on and off, for the past 10 years.

This is such a simple classic, but when it's good, it's just so delicious. Making a good tamarind sauce first is the real key to creating a great base flavour.

This salad is a delicious meal in itself but also makes a great accompaniment to grilled meat or poultry.

I've never confined minestrone to the colder months, but in winter it takes on such a nourishing and warming role.

This is my version of a Korean classic. Succulent fried chicken with crunchy golden batter coated in sticky, sweet and salty chilli sauce. Delicious.
