Spaghetti with clams like in a restaurant with the 2 secrets of Edoardo de Filippo: what to put in the oil before adding the clams – Gordon Ramsay’s version

The spaghetti with clams are a first course that is much loved, requested and prepared throughout Italy, especially in the South. In many families, it is an essential dish for Sunday lunch, and each person adds their own personal touch with various interpretations, adapting it to their tastes. The following recipe inspired by the cookbook of Edward DeFilippo provides for the red variant with the addition of cherry tomatoes for an even more succulent sauce: in fact, you won’t be able to give up the “scarpetta” and a good glass of white wine!

Pan of spaghetti with clams and cherry tomatoes

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 380g spaghetti or linguine
  • 1 kg of clams
  • 400 g of cherry tomatoes
  • plenty of extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh parsley, salt, pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • filtered clam water


Start by putting the clams soaked in cold water from the morning with a teaspoon of coarse salt changing the water every 3-4 hours to remove all the sand. After this step, transfer the clams to a pan, cover with a lid and let them open over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Discard any clams that remain closed as they are not edible. Shell most of the clams, leaving a few whole to decorate the dish.

Filter the clam water with a cotton cloth very thin to remove any sand residue. Wash the cherry tomatoes, cut them in half and sauté them in a pan with two peeled and crushed garlic cloves and a little oil. Add some chopped parsley and cook over medium heat for no more than 2 minutes, avoiding crushing the tomatoes too much.

Then add the shelled clams, clam water, chili pepper and pepper. Bring to the boil, cook for a few seconds and also add the clams with the shell. Mix and cook on low heat for about 5 minutes, funtil I get a thick cream but not too dry, in short a good thick sauce. Plate, leaving only the cooking sauce in the pan because you will have to use it as a perfect condiment to pour over the spaghetti. Serve and enjoy. Enjoy!

Piedmontese Stuffed Peaches – Yet another food blog – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Piedmontese Stuffed Peaches - Yet another food blog


These stuffed peaches are a traditional Piedmontese recipe that combines the sweetness of peaches with the intense flavor of amaretti and cocoa. This is my version with peaches in syrup.

Piedmontese stuffed peaches are a typical dessert of the gastronomic tradition of Piedmont, born in the countryside where peaches were a very common fruit. This simple but tasty recipe combines easily available ingredients, such as this tasty seasonal fruit, amaretti biscuits and almonds, creating a dessert with a unique flavour.

For the Piedmontese stuffed peaches recipe, yellow peaches or nectarines are usually used. Yellow peaches have firm, juicy flesh that holds its shape well during cooking, while nectarines, which are a fuzzless variety of peaches, offer a similar texture with smooth skin. These types of peaches are ideal because they do not fall apart easily during cooking and absorb the flavors of the filling well.

The variations

Authentic variations may include adding dark chocolate to the filling or flavors such as vanilla and cinnamon. In some versions, peaches are cooked in their own syrup to intensify the flavor and sweetness of the filling. In others, they are nuanced with wine.

Some modern variations include the addition of dry biscuits instead of amaretti or the use of walnuts instead of almonds. Another interesting alternative that I like to experiment with is the use of apricots, which offer a pleasant variation in taste and size… to eat in one bite!

I like to crumble a macaroon on the cooked stuffed peaches before serving and decorate with mint leaves for a contrast in color and texture. And if you also want to add a temperature contrast, you can serve them hot with a scoop of cream ice cream!

Stuffed peaches all year round

Stuffed peaches can be made at any time of the year thanks to the use of peaches in syrup*, which not only allow you to have a pantry ingredient always available, but they also reduce cooking times while maintaining the original taste.

By using peaches in syrup, in fact, the dessert is ready in a few minutes, without giving up the tradition and authentic flavor of the Piedmontese recipe.
