Clean fish by removing entrails and scales.Fillet and halve each fillet, so as to obtain 4 pieces (before filleting, remove excess bones with the help of a fish gripper).Then wash courgettes and thinly slice them.Arrange mackerel on a lightly oiled baking pan, sprinkle with grated cheese and cover it with courgette slices, recreating the effect of scales.

Finally, add a little oil and bake for 10 minutes at 180°C. Peel potatoes and cut them coarsely to speed up cooking. Place them in a small pot with cloves and a bay leaf and cover with water. Cook for 15-20 minutes. When cooked, remove cloves and bay leaf, add milk, saffron and a pinch of salt and mix everything.

Peel and dice pears. In a pan, place extra virgin olive oil and garlic and immediately add pears and concassé cherry tomatoes.Desalt anchovies, chop them and add breadcrumbs and grated cheese (50 g). Cook Maccheroni al torchio in salted boiling water.Drain pasta inside the pan with pears and cherry tomatoes and sauté with a sprinkle of previously prepared anchovy breadcrumbs.Mix seed oil and water (140 ml) and add flour and tomato powder.Place mixture inside a previously heated non-stick pan, and cook without stirring.
