Calabrian Orange Marmalade and Mixed Nuts Crostata and Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG Sweet Red Wine

A slice of heaven to get at the breakfast table, for an afternoon tea or to serve at the end of a meal. This is a perfect blend of sweetness and healthy products, as it is prepared with intensely flavored orange marmalade and mixed nuts. The marmalade we got to try (thanks to Delizie del Gusto) was like a home-made marmalade, not overly sweet but intense in flavor, and with a lovely rough texture.

If you decide to serve a slice of our scented crostata at the end of your meal, offer your guests a sip of a chilled Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG – Valle delle Rose sweet red wine. This is made from Brachetto grapes, grown & picked low yielding vineyards around Acqui in Piemonte, close to Alessandria. It has wonderful mouth-filling flavors of ripe red fruits, rose and citrus peel notes, which pairs perfectly with desserts and fruit.

An Apulian Way Pasta: Penne with Flower Sprouts and Anchovies

The first time I saw the flower sprouts was last week when I opened my weekly veggies box delivered in front of my door by Eatgrim.

These new trendy vegetables from the UK have surprised us either with the delicate sweet nutty taste or the consistency. These mini-vegetables are always crunchy and their leaves won’t get damaged even when boiled in salted water.How should you prepare these cross between Kale and Brussel sprout veggies? Stir- fry them with garlic and anchovies, as the Apulian Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe recipe.

A Creamy and Alcoholic Zuppa Inglese

Despite its name, the Zuppa Inglese is an Italian trifle-like dessert whose origins seem to come from the Emilia Romagna region. It is a layered dessert made either with sponge cake or with ladyfingers soaked in an Alchermes liqueur, alternated with vanilla and chocolate custard. This dessert is widely appreciated on the Italian Christmas tables where many variations are served, adding dried fruit or dipping the ladyfingers in other liqueurs. 

This is the version we’ve served on our Christmas tables. Enjoy!
