Basic recipes, Stocks and soups | November 2, 2015 | By


Bouillon is the base for everything with taste.

Add it to almost anything (soup, stew, risotto, sauces, reductions, saute or roast vegetables) and it will round flavours up, making everything taste like there was a grandmother in the kitchen.

Fresh, homemade mayonnaise is very easy and fast (15 minutes) to make and the taste is very different and so much better than the industrial one.

After you will try your own mayo it will be difficult to go back.

I have always liked carrot cake, but every time I would eat one I would think: “it’s good but… If it was just a little bit less dry…”

This recipe comes from the city of Ferrara in Italy and it was passed to me by my dear friend Simona who attended university there.
The italian name is Torta Tenerina, “soft cake”.

I am a white fish lover. They are good, healthy, lean but filling, easy to digest. They are a good source of proteins and of your best friends Omega-3! The American Heart Association recommends two portions of fish per week, more if you have a cardiovascular disease.

There is nothing that makes me feel more in contact with nature then making passata.
Maybe it is because of the earthy smell of the tomatoes or maybe it is because at the end of the summer I am filled with the colours and the heat and I feel like celebrating all this life. Maybe it is because I am putting away food for the cold winter, like in one of my favourite fables The Grasshopper and the Ants.
