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 […]

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 […]

Moqueca


Moqueca, traditional Brasilian fish and shrimps dish: I marinated the firm white fish and shrimps in lime juice, chopped coriander, crushed garlic, salt and pepper. For the sauce, I fried onion, peppers and tomatoes before adding the marinated fishe/shrimps and coconut milk. Once mixed, I let it simmer while cooking rice as a side.

Comfort food


I thought I was going to get sick…gladly I was just exhausted and needed to pull the plug for a day! This comfort food, inspired by Ottolenghi, was the right dish for my body and soul: very simple to make and soooo tasty! Orzo and shrimps cooked in a tomato […]
