Chocolate salami is not salami at all - it is a delicious chocolate log filled with nuts, biscuits and a dash of liqueur. The name simply comes from the salami-like appearance. Originally from Italy (or Portugal, depending who you ask), it tastes best when served with a glass of port or liqueur after dinner. Chocolate Salami looks beautiful when presented on a wooden board, partially sliced and ready to nibble on. When it comes to the ingredients, why not get creative? As long as you stick to the basic recipe, you can use any biscuits, nuts and liqueur you like. You can also replace some of the...

I'm always on the lookout for impressive looking desserts that are deceptively easy to make. I reckon this is the winner in that category! No fancy equipment required - all you need to get this right is a cupcake/muffin tin and small glass jars. Panna cotta is a delicious Italian dessert which is very simply a sweetened, set cream.
