A good friend of mine and fellow chef, John Lanzafame, has taught me a lot about Italian food and his take on it is that he wants to cook like his mother does. That simple statement was enough for me to fall in love with his cooking. This isn't an original recipe but it speaks volumes about true Italian food and the wonderful flavours it produces with so few ingredients.
For the Garlic confit:
Drizzle whole garlic cloves with some olive oil and roast in the oven on the lowest setting for about 2 hours until they are nice and soft.
Heat oil in a pot and add chopped garlic and cook until caramelised.
Add tomatoes into the pot and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add chopped basil.
Season to taste.
Heat the oil in a wok until almost smoking.
Add in the mussels and cook for a minute.
Add in the garlic, chilli, basil, white wine and cover for 2 minutes.
Add in the Napolitana sauce and season with salt and pepper.
Heat through and serve with crusty bread.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
