Taralli


As you can see, I am in my weekend mode…projects that are a bit more elaborative … but soooo tasty. Tonight I will enjoy these crunchy freshly made fennel seed taralli with a glass of Petite Arvine. For about 70-80 taralli you will need: – 400g flour – 2.5 dl […]

Brioche


About a week ago I set myself a challenge: home made brioche….and I am sooooo proud 😊 For sure I will make this a regular for my brunches…but the main ingredient, time, will probably be more of a challenge then during this lockdown period. The ingredients and method are not […]

Erbazzone


Another Italian Easter tradition: after the richness of Easter and in full spring, once the first greens of the year can be harvested, Italians like to bake what they call Erbazzone…erba is grass… an assembly of greens.  It is tasty the day you make it and it is a great […]

Sicilian whole orange cake


I had previously tried the semolina clementine cake, which is also rather moist and full of flavours, but no doubt this orange cake is richer and an explosion of southern Italian sun. For the batter, mix 3 eggs and 250g suger until they are very light and fluffy. It is […]

Torta della nonna


One of the many traditions Italians have for Easter is the Torta della nonna: a shortcrust cake with a dense vanilla cream between the upper and lower dough. Once you have mixed together the shortcrust, let it rest for a good 30 mins in the fridge. For the cream, mix […]

Tasty mistake


You might have wondered where I was yesterday…sulking because of a pretty stupid, but tasty mistake I made: in these strange times, where it is difficult to find flour and yeast, I poured far too hot water into the yeast, which practically killed it 😨 As a result, my bread […]

Frangipane and pear tarte


My first attempt at Frangipane and can you believe it, my first attempt at blind baking. I am very happy with the result and will for sure have another go at it very soon. For the tarte, I mixed 200g butter with 60 powdered sugar, added 1 egg and an […]

Pumpkin seeds spelt bread


Pumpkin seeds spelt bread: mix 100g of pumpkin seeds with 500g of flour, add 1 cube (42g) of fresh yeast to 500 ml of warm water and mix with the flour/seeds and finally add 10g of salt. Mix by hand for 5m and then bake in a buttered cake form for 45 mins at 180 degrees.

Home made pitas


Another first…another step into the right direction…so happy to be able to make my own pitas

Gnocchi…..


What a nice surprise…sweet potato gnocchi, which I served with cavolo nero. The contrast in both taste and colour…a dish to repeat!! To start, I made a simple salad with brussels sprouts on a sweet honey mustard sauce and the Diana Henry inspired pommegranade and orange cake. A very nice […]

There is no New Year without…


For me, there is no New Year without this mouthwatering pizza a scarola: a receipe from nonna from bella Napoli… I can’t wait until it cools down a bit to be able to take my first slice… 😋 Here is to a healthy, inspiring and foody 2020 🥂
