One of my favorite movies is “The English Patient”. In one of the scenes Hana brings to the patient plums from the garden. “It is a very plum plum”, he says.
This one brings me back to my Umbrian vacation. I wanted to make something quick and simple. What came out was a heavenly surprise.
The sweetness of the caramelized peaches and the fennel chunks glazed by their own liquorices, then mixed with the exotic taste of the poussin – it’s a recipe for a passionate revelation.
The sausage crostini was my favorite breakfast when I was in high school. For this version I decided to add asparagus.
I love how simply perfect this dish is. Once you try the aromatic potatoes you will want to keep the recipe in secret. Hush-Hush.
Strikingly rustic in look, tantalizingly earthy in taste,beets
elegant in texture these beet bites will be a great addition to your favorite goat cheese.
Cut the sun-dried tomatoes and basil to thin strips.
Place the burrata on a flat plate. Cut it into big bites. Arrange the strips of sun-dried tomatoes and basil on top. Add the pan-roasted pine nuts and drizzle with your most treasured extra virgin olive oil.
This dish calls for delicate treatment. I’ll suggest using the finest olive oil you have. What you will get will be a complete fest for your senses. It a great starter for ‘adore-me“ dinner. If you continue with Gnocchi with rabbit ragu and then finish with Saffron Panacotta you will be the star of the night. “Good cooks never lack friends”.
