Ginger Beef Stew with Shiitake Mushrooms // Stufato di manzo allo zenzero con funghi shiitake

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

I haven't been very present on the blog lately, and I'm sorry for that. The past week I was incredibly busy with my other blog that I had to leave something behind. Also, and I said this in the past, I haven't been feeling a lot like writing for Inglourious Bananas lately. And I haven't been very creative in the kitchen either.

Buckwheat Tortiglioni with Brussels Sprouts and Lacinato Kale // Tortiglioni di grano saraceno con cavolini di Bruxelles e cavolo nero

Remember when I told you I was trying to avoid gluten? Well, it isn't going very well. It's just so hard to stay away from barley, spelt and rye. Not to mention pasta, which I'm craving a lot lately. The latter, however, isn't much of a problem because gluten-free pasta exists and today I'm sharing another recipe using my favourite, buckwheat pasta.

Quinoa and White Bean Soup // Zuppa di quinoa e fagioli bianchi

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

One of the reasons I haven’t had a lot of time to post is that I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately. It got pretty cold and I love getting all that heat from the stovetop and the oven. However, there’s nothing able to warm me up as a steaming bowl of soup, and that’s pretty much all I’ve been eating these days. Both for lunch and dinner.

Stuffed Butternut Squash // Zucca butternut ripiena

I've been so busy last week, mostly editing this video, that I couldn't find the time to write. To be honest, I'm incredibly lazy lately and kinda feeling down that I don't feel much like writing which means there's plenty of recipes waiting to be posted, and this stuffed butternut squash is one of them.

Herbed Quinoa and Lentils with Maple Balsamic Oyster Mushrooms // Quinoa e lenticchie alle erbe con funghi ostrica allo sciroppo d'acero e aceto balsamico

Monday, November 06, 2017

Just like I did last year, I went to Lucca for the Lucca Comics last Saturday. I love cosplays and the city is very beautiful, but what I look forward the most when I travel is food. I'm obsessed with food and I always try to eat typical dishes. Among the many things I ate, I had tagliatelle with Porcini mushrooms, a terribly executed dish with overcooked mushrooms drowned in oil. This quinoa and lentils with oyster mushrooms is my way to clear mushroom's name.

Apple Pie Bars // Barrette alla torta di mele

I don't know why but lately my body has been craving sweets like there's no tomorrow. I just don't seem to be able to control myself. So to avoid to become the human version of nice Majiin Buu (if you don't know who Majiin Buu is, you should probably question your life choices, just saying), I went on a quest to find healthy sweet treats that have more than refined sugars and unhealthy fats in them.

Chili con carne

Wednesday, November 01, 2017

The only thing that comes to mind to most Italians when they think about food from the States is junk food. Hamburger, hot dogs and fries. Fast food, basically. And steaks. They completely ignore all the delicious foods they have to offer. Just think about Creole and Cajun cuisine. Or Texas cuisine that has to offer one of the most delicious meat-based dishes I've ever eaten, Chili con carne.
