Need food to go with your glass of wine tonight? We've got you sorted.


A good roast can make the dullest day special. Add Italian flavours to this dish and you’ll be in heaven.

I’ve been lucky enough to be feasting on Italian roasts my whole life thanks to my mum’s exceptional cooking skills. Like all good Italian children I have eaten roasted rabbit, roasted quails and at one stage, my roasted pet chook Clucky. Nice one mum.

But back to less upsetting cuts of meat…

Monday: Italian Roast Scotch Fillet

I’ve never taste a more tender, more flavoursome roast than this. My mum says the wine tenderises the meat as well as adds flavour. And you can sip it while you cook perfect.

Tuesday: Italian Roast Chicken with rosemary

Roast chicken is a classic. Roast chicken Italian-style is out of this world. The kids will be fighting over this delicious dish and the fresh rosemary makes it truly special.

Wednesday: Rich Italian pot roast

Italian pot roast brings all the best flavours of the region together. It cooks for over an hour but its so worth it. Serve it with crusty bread or rice and save some for lunch the next day.

Thursday: Tuscan Roast Pork

Roasted pork is a delicious addition to any long long long lunch. Slicing through this roast is like slicing through butter and pork goes with every vegetable you can think of, especially seared artichoke hearts and tomatoes.

Friday: Roast Veal with mushrooms

This delicious roast is so rich and hearty. The veal and the mushrooms bring a lot of flavour to the dish, as does the addition of white wine.
