0
Pistou o pesto – Minestrone con quinoa, gamberi e “pistou” (e non pesto) It’s been ages I haven’t made soup for myself, I’ve had no desire for soups whatsoever.

Hearty green risotto – Risotto with cream of broccoli

2
Risotto con crema al broccolo You might say that this is not real risotto since it’s made with brown arborio rice, so as with any brown rices, you don’t get the creaminess of regular arborio. Honestly I love the texture of brown arborio, it’s chewiness, nutty flavor and wholesomeness. Of course, [...]

The real thing – Mascarpone

2
Mascarpone Usually I would never think of making cheese, because in my mind, it was something too complicated, something only cheese makers knew how to do. This changed my mind. Living in the US, it’s sometimes difficult to find imported cheeses, such as mascarpone. In the past, stores like [...]

Passatelli asciutti con gamberi e sogliola   Passatelli is a specialty from Romagna and Marche regions of Italy. It’s usually served in a broth (in brodo) or asciutti (dried) which means as a pasta dish and of course no broth. I grew up eating passatelli which was my mom’s favorite soup, but when [...]

Soup for the season – Split pea soup with pancetta

1
Zuppa di stagione – Zuppa di piselli spezzati con pancetta I tried many versions of split pea soup and this one is my favorite.

Triffasù – Strawberry cup with mascarpone mousse and raspberry coulis

3
Coppa di fragole, con crema al mascarpone e coulis di lamponi I was not sure how to translate coppa in English other than use the word cup…I am pretty sure there is a more accurate word for it…but nothing better came to my mind. I realized today that my English is getting worse while we were at a [...]

I heard it’s from Nice – Polenta and shrimp soup

14
On dit que ca vient de Nice – Soupe de crevettes et polenta I wish I could take the credit for this amazing soup, but unfortunately I cannot.

Un voleur dans la cuisine – Mini gâteaux de polenta à la vanille et pêches rôties au rhum Who said that polenta only needs to be eaten in savory dishes?
