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.

Yellow pumpkin bread

I love baking and I love making bread, trying to spend as much time as possible in this hobby. Pumpkin is generally used in sweet cake loaf or in soups. I decided to make a savoury bread, with a beautifully warm colour, perfect for brunch or for breakfast, slapped with really good butter. The pumpkin does not make the bread particularly sweet. It is a  loaf we were delighted with, infact there were only crumbs left after the brunch Try and let me know.

Best lentils come from Umbria, look for fresh cotechino at Italian butcher shops. We suggest a different way to taste this traditional dish, not only for Christmas holidays.

Morning brioches

Nothing better than a gorgeous home made brioches for breakfast. Easy to make, they are a must-have for Sunday morning. It is better to try  these brioches warm, because I really couldn’t wait until the rolls had cooled to have a taste…… I prefer plain brioches, but you can fill them according to your taste.
