“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…

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…

Puff Pastry Cake with Spinach and Ricotta

The spinach in our garden were ready to pick up, so I had to think to some good recipe 🙂 This is a very easy dish, you just have to find a good puff pastry, and the main job is already done 🙂 For the perfect result is important to drain as much as possible…

Capretto al Forno – Oven Baked Goat Kid

It’s Easter again, and like always in my family, I also like to keep the tradition of eating lamb, or even better goat kid. As I wrote already in the previous post, I know many people nowadays are against that, but I grew up with a different background, we always had animals, and I have…

Coratella di Capretto – Sautéed Goat Kid Offal

I know that many people don’t like offal and some are even disgusted of the idea, and many people don’t like to eat lamb and goat kid too, but I grew up in a family where we always had our own animals so I am since always used to eat every part of them. My…

Skirt Steak Roll, with Ragusano Cheese and Bell Peppers

I think I already wrote in other posts how much I love the skirt steak, with its very beefy flavor and also good prices 🙂 Normally I prefer to keep my steaks simple, but this time I decided to make a roll with it, since its shape helps for this kind of preparation, and I…

Lagane e Ceci – Fresh Pasta and Chickpeas

Here it is one of those warming recipes that are simply perfect to prepare during those cold evenings 🙂 It’s very simple and it was a recipe of the rural society, through all southern Italy there are several variants, especially in Calabria, in Cilento and in Lucania, but fundamentally they are all very similar. The…
