This calzone (folded pizza) recipe is beautifully creamy with some sweetness. Perfectly portable for an evening picnic on the beach.
Calzone is from an Italian word for trouser leg, no doubt a reference to its shape. If you are as atrocious at Italian pronunciation as me, you should abandon all hope of being authentic and pronounce it cal-zone-y and call it close enough! I like to think of them as a classier, continental alternative to a good old pasty.

I suppose Italians would call this "Focaccia ai pomodori e rosmarino". I usually think of tomato recipes as being something for the summer because they're so much more flavoursome, but this recipe does well whenever because the baking helps to concentrate the flavour.

Rösti is a traditional Swiss breakfast made of grated potatoes. They're perfect for Saturday mornings when you feel you need potatoes but want something healthier than you'd find in a fried breakfast. Although röstis are usually made by boiling and frying, this recipe using the oven is easier.

Spinatknödel are traditional in Austria (particularly Tirol). They're spinach dumplings, they have similarities to gnocchi (but based on breadcrumbs instead of potato). This is a vegan version and works very well, but traditionally cheese is involved. I recommend serving these drizzled in sage infused olive oil, but other sauces work.
