Tagliatelle Pasta with Stewed Artichokes and Parsley

The last Eatgrim box was rich in Mediterranean veggies, including fresh and crunchy artichokes from Sicily, and some aromatic parsley. The only ingredient that I still needed to prepare a nutritious meal was a few Tagliatelle pasta nests, ever-present in an Italian kitchen. I grabbed it out of my larder and started cooking. After only 30 minutes, a steamy dish of Tagliatelle with Sicilian artichokes was ready to be eaten.

Crispy Pan-Cooked Pasta Apulian Traditional Pasta: Spaghetti all’Assassina – Nero di Troia Red Wine

Spaghetti all’assassina (killer spaghetti), is a signature dish from Bari, Puglia.
It becomes à la mode during the 70s.
This dish is so popular that in Bari even exists a “Spaghetti all’assassina Accademy”, with members that respect religiously the way this pasta is made.
The technique behind is called “risottatura“, so the pasta is not boiled but is cooked directly in the pan, like a risotto, adding the liquid (in this case the tomato sauce) little by little, until it is absorbed and the pasta is cooked.
The pasta cooks high heat, until it caramelizes and scorches: spaghetti must be crunchy but not burnt! And they are really spicy to, with a lot of peperoncino.
So try the recipe that follows here and become an honorary barese.

Ancient traditions: Apulians Tarallini

Anyone who tasted Apulian tarallini has liked them. They are both something to nibble on before lunch, as bread during dinner, or as snacks during an aperitif.

These small fragrant finger – food bites are one of the most widely consumed and known foods from the Puglia Region (Southern of Italy). The plain Tarallini are made with simple ingredients present in all the larders in Apulian houses: flour, white wine, Evo oil, and salt. If you like different tastes, flavor them with fennel seeds or chili pepper flakes, turmeric or other spices.

This time let us give thanks to Mamma Vita for her Tarallini recipe. This Mamma has always delighted her beloveds and friends with delicious dishes, and so she does now with us thanks to this yummy recipe.

Our favourite Apero: a Spritz (grab the recipe here), tarallini and fleshy olives.

Matching Food – Wine: Linguine Pasta with Tomatoes and Plaice Fillet- 3Passo Bianco Organic White Wine

This week we got the chance to taste the fresh Plaice fish delivered directly at our doorstep by the danish Blue LobsterApp. Blue Lobster is changing the way fish is bought and sold, by enabling fishermen to cut out the middlemen and sell directly to restaurants and end-consumers via a digital marketplace.

We just recently approached this company, and we already love this new way to buy the freshest local seafood directly from the sea. Their core identifier is to catch fish using sustainable fishing practices and passive gears such as nets instead of trawlers. The fish they supply is often still alive, as they don’t process, freeze or defrost any seafood. We believe this is a guarantee of quality giving us the assurance to prepare something delicious like our recipe of the week: Linguine Pasta with cherry tomatoes and Plaice fish.

We served this delicious Linguine with a glass of 3 Passo Bianco Organic White Wine. This Italian Golden Yellow colour wine is made mostly with Chardonnay and Grillo grapes. This fresh and intense wine features pleasant hints of tropical fruit, yet a great structure and smoothness
