I have a confession to make: there are some ingredients I just don’t know how to cook. This
is was the case of – radishes. I used to eat radishes in salads, and sometimes as crudités pairing dips, but I never really understood its usage in the kitchen – or even how to make the most of it.
While scrolling down tweets from Food52 – a truly amazing food site- I discovered a simple, delicious recipe with grilled chicken, radishes pickles and greens from Caroline Wright, who creates recipes for Food52.
It seems Summer in Italy is still going to stay with us at least for now. Since these days temperatures in Rome are in the 90’s (about 32°C), Romans are still going away for the weekend for their last beach getaways.This past weekend we were off to Umbria’s countryside, where my parent’s in law have a lovely country home.
I have been doing only salads lately. You name it, you got it. I want to share a recipe that includes chicken breasts. Ever heard of it?
Ever since I can remember, chicken salad is the most popular – and common – type of salad there is. The reason why chicken salad is a favorite, is because chicken is the most versatile meat that is readily available to us today.
In the last 3 – 4 days, it has been really hot in Rome. Temperatures went as high as 40 °C (104 °F) and I have been feeling suffocated and literally dehydrated. Not even water quenched my thirst and just the thought of eating anything that it’s not fruit or salad made me sick!
