I've used cherries here because they take two things that are already delicious together – cheesecake and chocolate – to a whole new level. You really can't beat a good cheesecake and this one is mega.

Farro is a wheat grain that is eaten in salads, soups and desserts all over Italy. It's not expensive and can be found in good delis. If you can't find it, though, use bulgar wheat, which is just as nutty in texture and cooked in the same way.

Calzone is a folded Italian pizza which, by the sheer nature of its shape, is far more portable than a normal pizza and looks a bit like a Cornish pasty. Although the flavourings can be the same as for pizza, Italians often fill their calzone with leftover veg from the night before, or with various things that need using up, mixed with lovely tomatoes and some melting mozzarella. Great served hot or cold.
