This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.


4 ripe tomatoes
4oz sliced salami (salami milano is fabulous)
1 third cup oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
salt and pepper
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • Place salami in shallow container.
  • Combine oil, lemon juice, lemon rind, salt, pepper, crushed garlic, parsley and basil; pour over salami and let stand for 1 hour, turning once.
  • Cut tomatoes into thick slices.
  • Arrange overlapping slices of tomato and salami on a serving plate, pour the remaing dressing over top.

This is wonderful served with fresh Baguettes.
