“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…

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…

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…

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…

Beef Ribs in the Oven

This a great recipe for two reasons: it’s delicious, and the ribs are quite a cheap cut 🙂 To cook well the ribs, having them soft and still juicy, it’s not always easy. First of all you need a good quality beef, so ribs coming from an animal that has a good level of marbling….

Lamb Chops “a Scottadito”, with Tzatziki and Mint Sauce

I know that nowadays many people, meat eaters I mean, don’t like the idea to eat lamb, but even if I eat much less meat than the average, I’m not vegetarian/vegan so in Easter traditionally I also eat lamb. Actually in my family we use to eat the kid goat (always bought from a farmer,…

Tiella di Gaeta

As I wrote in other previous posts, I really love octopus, I can eat it in all the ways 🙂 but to put it inside a focaccia it’s not really common, and this is basically what this recipe is about. It’s an old traditional recipe from Gaeta, a village in Lazio region, bordering Campania region….

Risotto with Red Scorpionfish

Here it is another risotto, with one of the best fish available on the market in my opinion: the Red Scorpionfish. It is a fish that traditionally is used for example in fish soups, but its fillet it’s really delicious, with a nice and nervous texture, and particularly tasty, more intense than many other fish….
