Wishing you all a very best 2013 , I takes this opportunty to announce that the Lifeinitaly.it website , has set up a new section
Italia Segreta, what, where, when, in Italy
A DataBase of Italian regions, full of pictures of places, links to events unknown to most people, and even video recipes, divided by regions.
Italia Segreta, what, where, when, in Italy, is accessible by clicking the button of the same name on the HomePage of the Lifeinitaly.it website
I may have asked this in the past, but don't know how to search old posts. Anyway,we're spending our first family Christmas in Italy this year. Any favourite recipes gratefully received. We're having roast beef (ribs on the bone) and no doubt roast potatoes. Found a recipe which includes gravy consisting of a whole bottle of red wine!!!
Since my grown-up kids don't like brussels sprouts, no doubt it'll be a boon to them if they're unobtainable???
Does anybody have any recipes for cooking black truffles. We had one today, cooked in an omelette in the French style, but would like to know if anyone has used them with pork, as still have another 2 to use up before they go off.
Having been given a huge orange pumpkin by a friend this recipe came to mind, its simple and delicious and hopefully something Gromit might enjoy!
2 tbs olive oil
1onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
half tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
half tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1kg peeled pumpkin diced
1 large potato
1L chicken or veg stock
half a cup of thin cream
A few weeks ago I started a thread in the old forum about this topic. I still think that it would be great if we could all share our favourite recipes which our families and friends enjoy. They are not supposed to be "gourmet" cooking, just old fashioned home syle "casalinga" recipes.
I love to cook, and whilst my italian is good enough for basic shopping does anyone out there know all the terms/names when shopping in the butchers or fishmonger.
For instance I have a wonderful recipe I want to try for a boned chicken, which also contains some minced veal. Also can you buy monkfish in Italy ? - what is it called ?
Any foodie/Italian language experts out there who can post a list if italian names for meat and fish, and their preparation i.e. boned, skinned, minced that can help me out to get the ingredients that I need.
Hi everyone, this is a warm invitation to joint this group and discuss Italian food, wine, regional cooking, recipes, tips, cooking utensils, history of cooking and any related subject you may wish to talk about.
And welcome, Mimosa, glad to see that you have already joined in the fun.
