What are the rules for heating an empty non-stick pan ? I ask, because we are told again and again not to do it, but on television I often see well-known cooks doing it. Will it damage the pan ? Will it damage the people that eat what you have cooked in the pan ? How hot must the pan be before there is a risk ? I regularly heat a little oil in an otherwise empty pan, and let it run like water before I add whatever food I want to cook. Will that be dangerously hot ?

Italy is rightly famous for its regional food specialities. But how do you know you're buying the real deal?
The key is to look for the distinctive red and yellow PDO mark - Protected Designation of Origin. It’s your guarantee of authentic regional flavour, perfected over centuries and made to exacting traditional standards.
