Lemony Rice Salad

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.

Dinner “all’Italiana” at La Moussière – Antipasto

I am back in “Rome sweet Rome”, and after taking the Photography course – Camerahols – with Roger Stowell,  little by little I am adapting to a new way of making pictures.

Potatoes, red peppers and capers

One of the things that I discovered in Italy is this wonderful combination of flavours: the sweet taste of red peppers and the acidity of capers. While in Puglia, I remember eating a salad that mixed red peppers, capers, and the taste of earthy and creamy potatoes. Being inspired by these three ingredients and wanting to add a spicy flair to an appetizer, I came up with the following recipe.

Maltagliati with zucchini over tomato sauce

We all pour tomato sauce over pasta, don’t we? If you browse through the Internet, you’ll find a lot of recipes with tomato sauce over spaghetti, or fresh tomato and garlic sauce over angel hair pasta, or creamy tomato sauce over penne pasta. I wonder why tomato sauce is always on top and…not in the bottom?

Ambrosia Summer Salad

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!
