pie di fragole

Strawberries pie

This pie starts with a basic pie crust……which generally includes flour, water and butter in precise proportions. Here, I decided to have a special pastry crust: eggs, and the ratio of water and butter is different from the rule. The original recipe calls for apples, but I decided to use the strawberries, which now can be found all year. The cake is delicious. The best strawberry pie. Served plain, or with a dollop of softly whipped cream. Recipe By Luca Montersino.

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.

Sesame seeds star cookies

Sesame seeds star cookies

Crunchy cookies. The combination of heavy cream with the toasted sesame seeds makes the taste of these cookies unexpected and wonderful. Generally, sesame seeds generally are used to coat cookies, while here, they are in the dough. That’s the reason why the cookies are very, very tasty and luscious. Perfect for breakfast, for a tea break, or any moment during the day, expecially in Christmas holidays. To taste and enjoy.
