Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). With butter or cooking spray coat a standard loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl combine sugar and orange/lemon zest; stir to incorporate zest evenly.
Add olive oil, wine, Ricotta Cheese and eggs; whisk thoroughly. Add baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gently stir in flour, chocolate and pistachios just until combined.

Pour into loaf tin. Bake for 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack in pan for 15 minutes.

When cool enough to handle invert out onto rack to completely cool. Drizzle with glaze, refrigerate until ready to serve.

Glaze: Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat; add whipping cream and salt; bring to
a gentle boil. Pour cream over chocolate chips and stir until melted. Drizzle onto cake; refrigerate until set. Makes approximately 12 servings
