Bagel sandwich with avocado and eggs, the homemade recipe

Let’s stay at home and enjoy its warmth. Let’s take a few moments, moments of real tranquillity, to enjoy the here and now – to switch off, even if only for a short time – the whirlwind of thoughts that engulf our minds. To read the pages of that book that has been waiting patiently on the shelf for a long time. To listen to our favourite song, the one that puts a smile on our face and makes us want to dance when nobody is looking. Beautiful memories and real hope. Cooking. Those recipes that require a little more…

Mini quiche lorraine with leek and salmon

I have always loved leek in savoury pies. I find it gives that extra edge to (almost) every combination of ingredients. And so, when I was thinking about a suitable recipe to celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring, this one came immediately to mind. I prepared the leek as part of a traditional recipe, both French and local: quiche lorraine. A combination of eggs and cheese that amplifies – celebrating to perfection – the flavours of this spring vegetable, protecting it in a shell of fragrant and flavoursome brisée pastry. Dulcis in fundo, to cap it all off we…

Well, it’s of little importance, what is important is their unique deliciousness, a perfect combination of lightness and delicate aroma which will bring a smile of contentment to your face at the first bite.

Gennaio è il mese del ritorno, scandisce il momento di rimettersi all’opera dopo un meraviglioso (e meritato) stop nelle festività natalizie. Durante le scorse giornate di festa anche la mia cucina – complici le infinite cene fuori e gli happy hour lenti delle vacanze – ha goduto di una più che guadagnata vacanza. Oggi torno all’opera, armata di creatività in una mano e furbizia nell’altra, per parlarvi di un filetto di maiale alle mele che non teme rivali. Questo è forse il secondo piatto di carne che più di tutti mi ha regalato confidenza in cucina. Un vero e proprio…

Ricotta-filled courgettes with tuna and olives

A light and healthy dish is ideal on a hot summer’s day. And these little stuffed courgettes filled with ricotta cheese, tuna and olives really fit the bill. They are also truly delicious: try one! Easy to prepare and also great for all occasions. Much like that versatile little black dress which suits any situation, courgettes filled with Ricotta cheese can be served warm as finger food while waiting to tuck into a summer barbeque, as a more formal starter, freshly baked as a main course or by slightly increasing the amounts and serving some bruschetta alongside them – as…

Linguine al pesto di rucola e basilico con speck croccante

Un piatto di pasta al pesto di rucola ed è subito casa. Gli amici che si contano sulle dita di una mano attorno a un tavolo di legno in giardino. Il tepore dei primi raggi di sole, quelli primaverili che scaldano prima l’anima e poi la pelle. Della carne che cuoce alla griglia nel barbecue. Il profumo delle braci, il piacere della condivisione, il ciliegio che sfoggia fiero i suoi primi boccioli. Un gusto fresco e sincero come solo un piatto preparato con amore sa esserlo. Il sapore frizzante e spensierato della rucola. Linguine al pesto di rucola che abbracciano i rebbi…
