Panissa (or Paniccia)

This is one of those old recipes that were called “poor recipes”, but as all those recipes, poor or not, they are just as delicious as they are simple 🙂 And it couldn’t be more simple, basically 2 ingredients! It’s about like making a polenta, then to fry (but there is also who prefer to…

The name “acqua pazza” literally means “crazy water“,…

Minestra di Tenerumi – Soup with Sicilian Courgette Leaves

This year we decided to try for the first time to grow in our garden the “Serpente di Sicilia”, a very nice and particular vegetable of the Gourd family that is typical of Sicily.

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

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…
