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.
Potatoes buns are beloved because of their lightness. The recipe is very easy to execute and loaves are fluffy and full of flavor, totally delicious, and with fresh, chopped rosemary in the dough, they are fabulous. These loaves are easy enough to make everyday but special enough to serve to friends and guests.
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.
A great satisfaction is to pick herbs and vegetables in the garden and then make a bread. Rustic thanks to the whole wheat flour, but soft and tasty . Perfect with cheeses and meats . Simple and delicious.
In the Northern part of Italy, Summer has been very cruel: rain, rain and rainy days. September has come with sunny and warm days. So, why not talking about a typical summer dish? Caprese.

Pumpkin and butternut are typical autumn ingredients, suitable for ravioli, bread and cakes. Generally, in Italy, pumpkin is used for savory recipes, being pumpkin sweet by itself. The savory flan, which we propose is soft and creamy, rich and velvety. Very easy to make, because everything is just mixed together and whizzed up in a blender and gorgonzola cheese sauce adds an extra touch. To taste!
I live in the countryside since 1 year, and it presents some advantages: health on first. But there is nothing better than gather some fresh ingredients from the kitchen garden almost every day, to prepare a sauce. Here is a special summer pesto, prepared with the ingredients coming from our kitchen garden, that works perfect for a long pasta shape. The best.

Wonderfully rich and creamy, this soup has been taken from Gordon Ramsay’s book “Cooking for friends”. Only one change:I found necessary to cook the pears for longer than suggested (1-2 minutes each side.) As he says, here’s a soup that’s perfect foe entertaining, both for its elegance and for its ease of preparation. The soup can be prepared a day in advance, ready to reheat……So, why not?
Lovely creamy soups. A potage to celebrate two ingredients: versatile chestnuts with the sweetness of the onion, These ingredients work really well together, creating a sophisticated flavor. A perfect dish when you feel the first chill in the air. Really lovely.
