When we think Italian we think of ravioli, the traditional dumplings served with creamy sauce and that delicious buttery scent. Make your own ravioli by following this recipe, which teaches you how to create the pasta and sauce from scratch.

If you fancy something light and healthy (think omega-3 essential fatty acid) as your main course, try cooking sea bream and pair it with pistachio and broccoli. The pistachio and pistachio oil give your dish an extra fragrant boost, making it irresistible even before you taste it!

This recipe is a good start for those who want to get your hands on gourmet cooking yet not make something over the top. This dish requires only 3 key steps for preparation – mix all the ingredients, coat them evenly on the chicken thighs, glaze it with honey and vinegar – and you are good to leave it in your oven to cook!

Reduce the amount of cayenne pepper if you are making this for your little ones.

  1. Grilled Spice-Rubbed Beef Tenderloin Filets with Chimichurri

For those who can’t live without meat, we would recommend you indulge in this juicy steak with an Argentinian flair. Paired with flavourful chimichurri, a tangy and zesty condiment perfect for grilled meat, this dish is curiously intense and refreshing at the same time.

Translated to Snow Eggs (a classic French dessert of small poached meringues floating on custard sauce), Oeufs a la Neige may look difficult to make but it can actually be done in about 30 minutes. This fancy dessert is a sweet finish to your meal thanks to its creamy custard and caramel. Fancy eggs, anyone?

Finish off your meal on a soothing and refreshing note with the Holiday Peppermint Mocha. Even though it is not exactly the holiday season yet, there is no reason not to enjoy this delicious drink. If you are making a large amount of mocha, keep it in an alfi® carafe to ensure that it is still warm when you are ready to enjoy it.
