Vegetarian Carbonara with Beets // Carbonara vegetariana con barbabietole

Friday, February 17, 2017


Carbonara was one of my favourites growing up. It wasn't the carbonara everybody knows (and love), though. It was spaghetti with pancetta and... scramble eggs! I know, that's not a carbonara, but that's the way my mother used to make it because my father doesn't like rawish eggs.

Pomegranate Salmon // Salmone alla melagrana

Monday, February 13, 2017


I eat salmon about once a week. Sometimes it's a fancy recipe made by my mother, sometimes it's a simple skillet salmon and it's made by me. Some other times I also feel like making fancy and visually stunning dishes, and I try to combine the aesthetic with unusual food combinations.

Pasta with Chicken Liver Pâté and Turnips // Pasta con pâté di fegatini di pollo e rape

A while ago, after spending too much time cleaning chicken liver, I sautéed some onion, added the liver and cooked it. I season the whole thing with some fresh thyme and chili and blend it with a little olive oil. And voilà, my healthy pâté was ready to eat. There was only one problem though, it was a lot of paté so I decided to divide it into portions and freeze it.

One of the first recipes I posted on the blog was roasted turnips, a very simple recipe. That time I used thyme and a Greek yogurt sauce to enhance turnips' light taste.
