A much celebrated treat is broad beans eaten with pecorino. Pecorino is cheese made with sheep’s milk, so it has a rather strong and salty flavour. The fresh beans, by contrast, are tender and delicate. A bowl of good olive oil and some salt flakes provide extra flavour.

This is a theatrical dish. Present the individual components in rustic dishes in the centre of the table for diners to help themselves. The idea is for each person to shell their own beans, dip them into the oil and eat with the cheese. It goes without saying that a glass of light red wine is also very desirable. A great deal of Italian food is eaten in this way, where the food itself and the very act of eating it becomes something of a seasonal celebration. And it goes to show that you don’t have to go to Tuscany to discover traditions – you can make them part of your own daily life.
