    Made the artichoke topping and went no further. It really was quite disgusting and went straight in the bin. Might just have been eating raw garlic

    I made this for my boyfriend on our first dinner date cooked by me and he loved it, the different toppings made it a very enjoyable starter and the walnut one was particularly good. I'm not keen on artichoke but even I liked this! It works very well with Parma ham

    Couldn't find ricotta anywhere - tried 4 supermarkets so used a cream cheese with pepper and mascpone. Added some extra toppings as served 7. Very good starter.
