This marvelous sauce and its poor ingredients recall in my mind a rural image of a time in which you cooked with what you had in the house, trying to add proteins for the winter. This sauce is typical from Veneto (dating back to the VI century!) and my grandmother used to love it and always made it with the Bollito misto at Christmas!
This sauce is really good if you like to add a punch to your dish, especially meat but also fish, vegetables, eggs or in the salad dressing. Horseradish is a root vegetable, spicy hot when fresh, its Japanese version, called wasabi, is famous as it is traditionally used with sushi.
There are many versions for this tasty sauce that is perfect for complementing meat. As for many Italian dishes here there is the presence of anchovies: they are very good and commonly used for adding a round salty flavour, in fact you won’t really recognize the fish taste. You will need fresh parsley
This is a monument of the Italian gastronomic tradition that requires the two most important cooking skills: love and time.
This dish gives you warmth, like a fireplace when outside is snowy.
The carrots, zucchini and potatoes have to be cut in little cubes. If you have never done it I have realized some photos that will help you with the cutting technic to be fast and precise.
The number of Christmas menus that are traditional in Italy are as many as the number of Italian families.
During the next 4 weeks I will post a menu that takes its inspiration from my Nonna and the Veneto region of course. It has always been the Family menu since I was born, with some variations now and then.
My friends Martina and Ric live in Zurich. She is a swiss miniature embroidery creative, he is a half computer geek, half hipster english man.
They just moved to their new house and they kindly invited us over for a nice Sunday lunch, on the warmest November day Switzerland has ever seen.
Today we open a shop of products to help you add genuine ingredients to your recipe and to your table.
I was very proud to meet real passionate Italian producers.
And I am very happy to sell their products on the new upcoming Nonna Armida shop!
The Autumn colour orange is not only the one of the leaves but also the one of the pumpkin.
Pumpkin is a great, versatile vegetable that makes a great, easy soup.
