Chicken liver & chorizo open sandwich
A thrifty, speedy supper for two – allow time for the Spanish sausage to add its paprika flavour to the creamy garlic and sherry sauce
1 Shallot Finely Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves – 1 Crushed 1 Squashed
200g Chorizo – Skin Removed – Sliced
4 Thick Slices French Crusty Bread
2 tbsp Olive Oil
300g Chicken Liver – Trimmed n Sinew Removed

- STEP 2 Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan until hot. Drizzle the slices of bread with the olive oil and rub the squashed garlic all over the surface. Put on the griddle pan and cook for 1 min each side until nicely charred with lines.

Of all the offal on offer in the world, chicken liver is arguably the most accessible.

This is the simple way my grandma and my mum make the crostini neri, literally the black crostini, a name given after the brownish colour of the chicken liver spread.
Serve on slices of toasted Tuscan bread. You can soak the bread in chicken broth, add a good spreading of butter, or keep it plain, if preferred.
1 To begin, rinse the chicken livers under running water and put them in a saucepan with the olive oil and the onion, carrot, celery, sage, rosemary and bay leaf
2 Season with salt, but be sparing as you will add salty anchovy paste at the end too
3 Cook for about 30 minutes on a medium-low flame, stirring frequently and adding some water if the mixture becomes too dry. When the chicken livers are cooked through, remove the bay leaf and add the capers and the butter. Blend all the ingredients together with a stick blender until smooth
4 At the very end, gradually add some anchovy paste, stirring and tasting every time until you are happy with the flavour
5 Crostini neri can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge: just reheat it over a low flame beforehand. Garnish with a sprinkling of capers and serve with freshly toasted bread
