With the final throes of the arctic winter behind us, it’s time to eat our way into a sunnier mindset. Wince through a punnet of slightly sour strawberries and pretend it’s a bright Wimbledon day. Perch next to the radiator with a Twister and bring the summer bank holiday to your living room. This cheesecake is an exercise in exactly that kind of wishful thinking: ricotta, apricot, orange blossom and amaretti will transport you to the bliss of a lazy, sun-drenched Italian holiday. Slap on a bit of suncream and have a row over the satnav, and the full immersive experience will be complete.
