Octopus Ragu – Ragù di Polpo

Octopus again 🙂 I have already shared several recipes with it, as I already said it’s one of my favorite ingredients and I really love it in every way. This recipe it’s not difficult, it just requires some time and constant attention. And for me this is one of the very best pasta recipes I…

“Roastbeef Style” Fallow Deer

I am sure that many people heard about the classic English roast beef recipe, that nice piece of beef cooked medium or medium/rare, and then usually served cold and thin sliced. But I saw on some hunters groups that it was possible to do it also with game meat, so since I had at home…

Torta di Pane – Stale Bread Cake

I love bread, good bread I mean, but not always I can eat it all 🙂 not a problem, we always do breadcrumbs that we always need in the kitchen, but this is another good way to use old stale bread 🙂 actually it’s not a recipe, it’s one of those things that people in…

Százrétű Kalács (a Type of Hungarian Layer Cake)

This is a Hungarian recipe that I was thinking to try since a while, and finally today I decided to do it. It’s a recipe I discovered on a Hungarian cookbook and on Youtube, made by one of the most famous food writers/TV conductors in Hungary (Borbás Marcsi), and probably my favorite because she is…

Dödölle, with Spring Onions and Porcini

Here I am with a new post about Hungarian recipes. And it’s another one I really like it 🙂 Dödölle are, let’s say, kind of gnocchi, but they are then usually cooked in a pan with pork lard until they make a nice crust. Usually they are served as a main dish with a lot…

Saddle of Deer, Purple Sweet Potatoes Purée, Asparagus

Here it is another nice recipe with game meat to do on Sunday: as I said other times, I really love game meat, it is very tasty, lean, the animals for sure had a good life and nutrition, it is just one of the healthiest meats for sure. This time I wanted to play with…

Salty Cake with Ricotta and Asparagus

It’s asparagus season, and we don’t want to miss it, right? 🙂 I usually like to eat asparagus simply as a side dish, just boiled, or to prepare a very good Risotto with them. But if you have some time this is also a great way to eat them. And it will be good also…

Roast Chicken, in Cocotte

Roasted chicken, “easy” someone might say 🙂 instead to cook well a whole chicken I think it’s not that easy, and for cooking it well I mean to have juicy meat (also the breast!), nice skin (possibly crunchy) and beautiful fresh flavor of fresh herbs. Most of the times I choose to cook the chicken…

Sfincione di Bagheria

Here we are in Sicily again, with another special and particular type of pizza/focaccia 🙂 I have already wrote a post about the most famous Sfincione (symbol of the city of Palermo), this instead is a traditional recipe of the town of Bagheria. This is also not a light recipe, and it’s something traditionally eaten…

Pasta with Sicilian Pesto

This recipe has nothing to do with the Pesto Genovese, but it’s not less good 🙂 With “pesto siciliano” often  we refer to the recipe made with sun-dried tomatoes (delicious!), but also with good and ripe cherry tomatoes (it’s even more fresh). There are different options, someone for example also use pine nuts…all are very…
