Chef Lucca’s Tuscan Green Bean FlanI recently visited a cookery school in Tuscany. Of the many classic Italian dishes Chef Lucca showed us, my favourite was the Green Bean Flan. This is really easy to prepare and is the perfect alternative to plain vegetables with your Sunday roast. Enjoy!

1/2 litre fresh double cream
