Nigella’s grandmother provides the inspiration for the first recipe, caramel custard which reminds her of the crème caramel she loved as a child.
Next stop is the larder where Nigella searches through her pasta collection to find the perfect shape for her dish. She settles on fusilloni and grabs a jar of spicy n’duja which makes an instant sauce alongside cavolo nero.
In the streets of London Nigella introduces two dishes which she thinks are the perfect match and deeply comforting too.
She begins with black pudding meatballs in tomato sauce. Once they are happily cooking, she takes a trip downstairs to her bursting gadget cupboard where she gets an electric potato masher to prep her brown butter colcannon.
