Lasagne Bolognese

Most of the times the hardest things are the most simple ones. Or what is actually hard is to keep something simple, not to mess it, not to get lost, to simply do what you want. People will say that ‘It’s not always easy to simply do what you want’. And that sounds extremely comfortable…

Butternut squash risotto

Another butternut squash recipe? Yes! It’s this thing that you get with certain people, food, things and give up only when every possible try was made. To ‘try’ is beautiful, ‘to try’ means ‘to be alive’. Because apart from the things that finally will work, you don’t wonder ‘what would happen if..’ for those that…

Risotto with shrimps

I kept making risotto until it gets right, I made it (and ate it) 4-5 times straight, writing down the changes I made each time in the recipe. I search new recipes, saw many videos, read again.

pappardelle with mushrooms

if you really want to make a good impression go with something simple but tasty, casual but unique, a dish that anyone would like to eat but all would think it was especially made for them.. and believe me they would feel special if you feel it too when you cook it, I know it sounds…

albert’s focaccia

the first time I made focaccia I made a bet.. “I’m telling you, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever tasted in this country” he said. “I bet you can’t make it as good!” Challenge accepted..I won the bet! We ate a lot of focaccia since then, crispy on the outside and soft within.. you’ll…
