Easter is a time for baking, celebrating and expressing gratitude. Now more than ever we have time to think about the things that matter in our life and about what and who to be grateful for. We baked these Easter wreaths with our children, while talking about what they are thankful for, filling this moment with love and happiness.
We wish you all a Happy Easter!

INGREDIENTSfor 6-8 pieces: Ready in 3 hr Preparation time: 30 min – Raising time: 2 hours – Baking time: 25-30 min
500 g all-purpose flour 3 tbsp sugar 1 tsp salt 3 tsp ground cardamom 20 g fresh yeast 90 g butter, softened 300 ml milk + 3tbsp to brush on 2 tsp rose or orange water (optional)
60 g icing sugar 2 tsp lemon juice 1 tsp rose or orange water (optional)
sugar eggs with chocolate or marzipan pearl sugar
Fit the dough hook to your stand-mixer. Add all the ingredients to the stand-mixer bowl and continue to knead until you have a soft, smooth dough. Cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place until it has doubled in size (for about two hours).
Divide the dough into 6-8 pieces. Divide each piece in half and roll out each piece so that it is about 30 cm long. Take two strands at a time and twist together to shape them into a wreath.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place the wreaths on a lined baking sheet. Brush them with milk.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on a rack.
Mix the icing sugar, lemon juice and rose water. Spread on top of the wreaths.
Top with the sugar eggs or pearl sugar, and leave to dry.
These cheesy Cornetti are just the perfect little nibble to serve at your morning brunch or to share with your friends during a Spring pic-nic. If you don’t have at hand the ham, not to worry, they are just delicious even only with extra cheese.
The wine we paired for our weekly Apèro was an “INT3GRAL3 Organic Wine Rose’ Frizzante”, which is completely natural and unfiltered. This wine is only made with organic grapes and born with the mission of inspiring people to get back to their original, natural essence. Its color is slightly pink and the alcohol percentage is moderate (10.5%). The taste is fresh and slightly dry. Fine bubbles with red berries at the end will enjoy your mouth.

Modern Pizza has been invented in Napoli and it is one of the most popular foods in the world. Pizza is a spread base of leavened dough topped with mozzarella, tomato, extra vergine olive oil, basil and whatever you’d like to add more… (pineapples and kiwi are not a first choice in Italy 🙂 )
The perfect pizza is baked at a high temperature, traditionally in a wood-fired oven. With this recipe and your home – oven you can still get a great result while spending some good time with your beloved. Thanks to Chiara for sharing this tried and tested recipe.
Although we always uncork a chilled bottle of beer when we are about to eat a pizza, this time we tried an unusual match. We have been sipping an artisan and hipster-like wine, and surprisingly the combination was perfect and to be repeated.
INT3GRAL3Bianco Frizzante Unfiltered Organic Wine is made with white ancient indigenous varieties of grapes and reflects the characteristics of the wine-making traditions. If you are keen to taste this contemporary wine take a look at Vinimondo and order some bottles.
It’s all about cooking with our children these days but the secret is to make something that can involve kids of all ages. Preparing these sweet chocolate rolls made them happy, proud and at the end eager to dip the fresh-baked Pangoccioli into a frothy cup of milk. Thanks to our dear and sweet friend Rhea who currently lives in Nairobi for passing us this recipe.
What a fun alternative recipe we got from Alice to give chicken nuggets an original twist. We loved the crispness of the corn flakes crumbs and the softness of oven-baked chicken. Let your kids coat the nuggets with the cornflakes they use to eat for breakfast, and fun is guaranteed.
Flavourful, colourful and without a doubt simply Italian. This delicious recipe will brighten anyone’s mood, especially when paired with a glass of Negroamaro (read our suggestion below).
TO DRINK: Masseria Supreno – is an original bottled Negroamaro, which in this tightly built charm troupe generously offers a potpourri of dark and sweet berry fruit. This wine is sourced from the southern Italian province of Puglia, more specifically from the southern part of the Salento Peninsula (Puglia region), where winemakers and partners at Alma Wines, grow the locally-grown Negroamaro grape from more than 25 year-old vines.
