fior di fragola

Strawberries flower

When I was a child, in Italy, there was a lollipop called “Strawberry flower”. This dessert reminds me of my childhood I love refreshing desserts and panna cotta: this combination seems perfect for hot season. Even if it may seem complicated because of many ingredients and methods, it is easy to prepare. No baking is required, so it is perfect for summer season.

Torta moderna vaniglia e cioccolato

Vanilla and chocolate modern cake

To celebrate our return, I wanted something rich, elegant and something with chocolate. Modern cakes, characterized by layers of different consistencies, give the result to seem a special day or occasion. About modern cakes I appreciate the delicate structure and soft and moist interior. The chocolate sponge layer adds a richness of flavour. Every slice is pure bliss.

Taralli

When I was a child I spent several years in Puglia on holiday and Taralli (bagels) were my favorite snacks. Only recently I had the opportunity to taste them again, then I decided to try to make them at home. After several attempts, I found my perfect recipe: I replaced a portion of flour with potato starch to give more crispness. Tasty by themselves, perfect with a glass of Prosecco.
