Muhammara is a dip made from red pepperoni and walnuts. It is lovely in a cheese sandwich, served with grilled red meet or just as a dip – as I served it the other day. The fava bean mash is a nice contrast to the rather spicy muhammara, which can […]

This is more a “putting together of ingredients” rather than a receipe… I could not resist the fresh fava beans on the market, which according to Roman tradition should be served with a fairly young pecorino. I happened to have Mimolette at home, which is a perfect contrast in taste, […]
I was asked for my shakshuka receipe…there are already so many out there, but I must admit, this one did taste very good! As with many receipes, shakshuka tastes the best when you put a lot of love…and what you have in the fridge….into it!
I wanted to give myself the challenge of making my own receipe for a strawberry cake: mission completed…with a “not too bad success”: I put too much of the filling and assembled the cake the evening before we ate it … so lessons leart and already incorporated into the receipe […]
To find land seaweed (or barba di frate in Italian) is a real treat….which I definitely don’t miss out on. This vegetable looks like a mixture of chives and seaweed…comes with quite strong roots, which need to be carefully removed before cooking. Some add anchovies to the mixture, I prefer […]
Inspired by a receipe from “Brunch the Sunday way”, I created this Mediterranean bread, which works well as a snack, an apéro, for brunch and as a side for a green salad. Depending on what you have available (herbs, cheese, flours, seeds), this cake can be totally different every time […]
A quick weekday dinner with some of the best spring has to offer: cime di rape and new potatoes. As Italian, I felt this dish needed a traditional Italian sausage to complete it.
This is a perfect weekday receipe for all the pasta lovers out there: it is quickly put together and sooo tasty – the lemon gives this dish the freshness, while the creamy chèvre makes it umami. Obviously you can play around with the ingredients and use any cheese and most […]
We had a lot of fresh herbs/greens in the fridge the other day and I thought it would be a pitty to throw them away – I am a vicious fighter against food waste. This cake was a lovely side to a BBQ, where we had salads and some vegi […]
I don’t know about you, but for me fresh peas are one of the better things in life – directly from the field would be the best…! For yesterday’s Mother’s Day, I made this light and springly frittata, which I served with some crème fraîche, lemon zest and a bit […]
