I realise that a friend of mine will be gone comes September. Therefore, I wanted to do something special for him especially that I already had cooked for another friend of mine the day before. Naturally he was the next one in the queue.

You must know that I only cook for people that I care for. Putting my heart in cooking makes it a bit of an intimate thing for me. I never cook large quantities either. You eat it and that’s it. No second helpings. The next one is never the same…

Because I found lots of cherry tomatoes in a box in the streets the day before it only made sense to do something with them (yes, still being sustainable). I remembered I did this hot salsa the other week, which was actually slightly modified Jamie’s recipe, served with grilled fish and thought I could make it into a pasta dish. Big thanks to the Italians here, this cheap ingredient, appearing daily in my Maltese diet, has never turned me down.
