Nonna Enta’s Buttery Chocolate Biscuit Bites

Five years after that my grandmother is no longer with us, I decided to prepare one of her best recipes, these buttery chocolate biscuits bites. She used to prepare them for any occasion, from birthday parties to Easter celebrations. My sister passed me the recipe that I had locked in the cupboard until now. While I was preparing her recipe I thought I heard her whispering the tips she always gave me, still feeling her close to me. After all, isn’t this the meaning of handing down our forefathers’ recipes?

Flourless Brittle Oatmeal Chocolate-Chunk Cookies

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.

Juicy Cherries Cake: A Cake to Connect Three Friends From Different Parts of the World

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!!!
