COOKING ITALIAN WITH CHEF PJ

Cooking and eating in the Italian culture are revered as one of the most important sensory and nurturing experiences—even more so when shared between lovers. So, if you’re planning a valentine’s night in, why not try one of Chef PJ’s go-to recipes:

Spaghetti Bolognese Sauce

Ingredients
50 ml olive oil
1 kg mince
400g chopped bacon
160g chicken livers
1 onion finely chopped
1 carrot finely chopped
½ celery stalk finely chopped
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
2g rosemary chopped
2g thyme chopped
1 bay leaf
50g sugar
50g tomato paste
500ml red wine
500ml bone broth
salt and pepper to taste

Method

Heat the oil in a large pot then add the bacon, cook until crispy and most of the fat is rendered. Add the mince. Once the mince is brown, add the chicken livers and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic and brown in the pot with the meat. Once everything is nicely brown and caramelized add the rosemary, thyme, bay leaf and tomato paste. Stir and cook for about a minute. Add the red wine and reduce by two thirds and then add the bone broth. Turn the heat down and cook slowly for about 2 hours. Season with the sugar, salt and pepper.
