I used to prepare pumpkin with some garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt and fresh thyme…But today I want to share with you a new fine dressing. Something that will contrast more the sweet of pumpkin. Here is an emulsion of extra virgin olive oil, umeboshi vinegar and soy sauce. Then, if you add some seeds on top, you will taste the crunchy opposed to the soft of the pumpkin….a really nice experience 😉
Another time so many colors on our table, with this flan that you can eat as a simply starter or as a second course. We are going to serve it on a violet béchamel, with purple cabbage. Finally we will garnish with some parmesan slices and walnuts. Enjoy 😉
Aubergine parmigiana is an explosion of flavors and scents, but in this “mono” version can also satisfy sight in a really enjoyable way. This recipe can also be presented in simpler ways, but sometimes a cook wants to amaze; with a little bit more of attentions and time you can really get great results. We still greet this summer together, with these aubergines that we will find on the market benches for other few days. Then we will let us inspired from all autumnal fruits and vegetables that the land is gradually giving to us.
Have you ever tried the different taste of a just gathered vegetable and one that has been in refrigerating rooms for many days? Well… if not, you can make an experience now, with this very simply recipe, that can be a really tasty side dish: the only rule to respect is to search for seasonal and km 0 vegetbales.

Panzanella is a typical dish of Central Italy. It’s a simple recipe with summer ingredients. There are several versions, depending on the region of origin. I encourage you to try this variant in glass, that is very elegant to serve as appetizer. I hope you like it: I preferred not to dank bread, but leave it crispy … Anyway, you can choose to add it at the end, to create a contrast note between the different consistencies, or mix it together with the vegetables, to soften with their seasoning. Be inspired, and create your favorite version. 🙂
If I say “Caprese”, everybody knows what I’m talking about: mozzarella, tomato and basil. But today there are so many ways to revisit this famous dish. With this recipe I propose you to use glasses to create the same combination with a new, tasty and nice form. You will be able to serve it also in smaller portions; blending mozzarella and cutting tomatoes, infact, give you the possibility to better organize doses for each portion as any single situation needs.
The summer is approaching and zucchini too… and we will have them for several months yet. During this time I would like to share with you different recipes.

Today here is a zucchini parmigiana with basil pesto.

Flans are always very elegant and attractive; they can be a nice appetizer or a light side dish, especially if you mix classical ingredients (like eggs and cheese) with some lighter ones; in this case I’ve used soy cream instead of fresh cream. Flans can be served in different kind of ways: here is a delicious version with a velvet carrot and curcuma cream.
