Nigella believes in that old adage - try anything once - and is certain you'll want to make these recipes over and over again. How about black Squink Risotto, for a real leap of faith, a beautiful yet sombre dish that will make a real impact at your dinner table. Beef shins might not be easy on the eye, but when braised with richly spiced and aromatic Asian flavours, they are to die for. And all the more special paired with a gloriously colourful cold shredded salad, yes salad! And Salty and sweet may not sound like a match made in heaven, but I defy any one to walk away from a plateful of my sweet and salty crunch nut bars, without devouring the lot. Don't knock it till you've tried it.
