fried platano

platano is similar to banana but is harder and color is different (inside caramel, outside black) this morning we bougth some at Versailles market and we bake it Bolivia style.. very very good, and even if is not "traditional" I add some pastry cream to my fried platano.. so good!

Pumpkin tarte or pumpkin pie !


It’s a tarte or a pie? I don’t know. Its not a long time that I discovered this cake, someone told me that is very popular in U.S. during thanksgiving period, and even if I don’t celebrate it because I’m Italian I love to bake some special U.S. food:)
Its tasty, delicately spiced with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, but sweet like a pumpkin, I added a personal touch.. a spoon of mascarpone, is it allowed?

Double chocolate cookies

This cookie is so good! Between crunchy and softy, melty and spongy you can’t really resist! Non dico che lo farai innamorare con questi biscottoni.. ma se non altro ti seguirà fino a quando non li avrà mangiati tutti!


Chestnut crêpes

Ah.. chestnut reminds me life in Genova Nervi… I use to pick up chestnuts in this period during weekends.. it was so nice to spend all day in forest and come back home with kilos and kilos of fresh chestnuts.. we use to roast them, make chestnut puree, cakes.. we were so happy:-)
This is first time that I use chestnut flour to make crepes and I love them. Follow same procedure of regular crepes but substitute half flour with chestnut flour (organic is better)

caramel ice-cream

This ice-cream has two versions: with or without eclats de caramel on it. Base is similar to vanilla ice-cream (crème anglaise base) but sugar is not mixed with egg yolks, is melted on fire with some water, you just have to be careful to not overcook your sugar or final taste will be burned and not caramelled!
frozen, before pacossage

My friend Federica for my birthday gave me a wonderful cooking book from a famous bakery of London; as soon as I receive it I baked a new chocolate cake! to be more precise a chocolate fudge cake.. result is not as cute as picture in the book, but taste is amazing! Welcome new British recipes! thanks Fede:)
