Cacciucco alla Livornese – Livorno-Style Fish Stew

What I am going to show now it’s one of my favorite fish recipes, and it’s really a dish which is perfect for the feasts: the Cacciucco alla Livornese, the most typical dish of the Tuscan city of Livorno. It’s not properly a soup, because it is thicker and the liquids are being absorbed by…

Sarde a Beccafico – Palermitan Stuffed Sardines

First of all I want to specify that this is the recipe of Palermo, it’s important because the recipe of Catania is completely different. Very good too, but I will show it another time 🙂 This is a very simple recipe, but it requires some manual skills, and it’s absolutely important to have very fresh…

Venison Neck

I love game meat, especially in winter time I like to eat it, and I am really happy to find different ways to prepare it and to use all the cuts. This is not a difficult recipe at all, it just requires some time, but the result is really nice. Moreover, if you don’t hunt…

Chicken Cacciatore – Pollo alla Cacciatora

Here it is another recipe of the Italian tradition, a dish you can find probably through all the country with some variations, but the concept is the same.

Mormore All’Acqua Pazza – Poached Sea Fish

Here it is another very simple and easy recipe, but that delivers always a great result 🙂 as always is important to choose a good fish and other ingredients, but it’s really simple to execute and I can tell you that you can really taste the sea!

“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…
