Series 1: 2. Episode 2

Nigella Lawson's mission to show how easy it is to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen continues as she shares the secrets of her celebratory, yet simple, Italian roast chicken, served alongside a sunny saffron orzotto.

Dessert comes courtesy of Nigella's surprisingly easy coffee ice cream, inspired by lazy days spent in the ice cream parlours of Florence, and an extra treat is presented in the form of a chocolate olive oil cake. There's also a silky pasta dish with courgettes, which elevates a quick fridge foray into a languorous late night treat.
