A different dinner than usual or a refined appetizer with cheeses and jams? Whatever the occasion, cheese is always a good idea. Make your cheeseboard colorful and tastier by pairing the cheese of your choice with the right jam and some fresh seasonal fruit and crunchy nuts.
Don’t forget to serve a good wine: Sangiovese Ca’ Storta Red Wine is the one we love to pair with this recipe. It recalls wild berries, currants and violets with a pleasant acidity. The sweet tannins make it perfect for every occasion.
The jams we paired come from Calabria, a sunny and beautiful South Italian region.
Many thanks to DeliziedelGusto for sending over its gorgeous products, and to vinimondodk to let us taste this organic Sangiovese Red Wine.
After living many years in the Nordics we got obsessed with all the recipes made with oats. The first among all is the porridge, called havregrød in Denmark, that comes in many variations from the sweet to the savoury ones. Today’s recipe uses the oat instead of flour to prepare the traditional chocolate chips cookies making them lighter and a little bit healthier.
The title of this week’s recipe may sound a bit quirky and needs to be explained.
The cake we made is more than a simple cake, it’s a pretext for connecting with our friend Giulia who is currently living in Santiago, Chile. She is a professional photographer and the owner of followingthenorthstar. During this period of quarantine, she baked tons of delicious Italian dishes for her family and amazed us with the stunning pictures of the food she prepared.
Apart from pilfering her the recipe of her strawberry cake (that we made replacing the strawberries with juicy cherries), we got to have a Zoom session to learn the basics of the dark photography from Giulia, by connecting the Chilean capital Santiago with Zurich and Copenhagen. It was so exciting!!!
Let’s celebrate Mother’s Day, and the Spring season, with a new recipe for strawberries. The base of the recipe is a combination of refreshing strawberries, citrus fruit juice and orange flower water, all ingredients that remind us of the blooming of spring. The light touch is given by a floating white egg, whipped and boiled to make it airy and feather-light.
The color is red, the symbol of love and beauty…so perfect for a Mother’s Day celebration. ❤️
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.
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.
For this 2020 St. Valentine’s Day, we opted for these rich and yummy dark chocolate truffles. This is a basic recipe that can be enriched adding chopped nuts, orange zest or a liquor of your choice. We added a touch of originality rolling them not only into cocoa powder, but also into raspberry, and coconut powder. To surprise your beloved let your imagination run wild!
Fresh, healthy, nutrient, vegan, rich in vitamins,….we could go on for much longer listing the benefits of this Kaki and orange salad. Among all these adjectives the one that suits this salad better is sustainable. Do you know why? Because we used kaki and oranges which would otherwise have been thrown away.

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.
*This wine is imported to Denmark by Vinimondo.dk, a wine wholesaler that works with some of the best wine suppliers in Italy, Portugal, France and Spain.Drop by the new Vinimondo.dk showroom to taste or buy this Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG – Valle delle Rose.
An ancient ritual, a treat to be enjoyed on the coldest and darkest days. Candied orange peels are great to eat like this, as an energy snack, or covered with chocolate. They can be added to different cakes to give them a special scent.
Our friend Flavia of Spaghetti ABC gave us her version of these candied orange peels. Flavia is a free food thinker, nomadic pasta maker between Italy and Sweden. If you are curios to know how she connects the South with the North Europe, keep on reading :-))
