How To Make – from Scratch – Scialatielli from Amalfi

Scialatielli is a typical fresh Pasta from the Italian Costiera Amalfitana (Campania region). It may resemble the tagliatelle pasta, even if it is shorter and easier to make. The tradition wants them to be prepared by hand, ensuring their characteristics of roughness and porousness, necessary to amalgamate perfectly with any sauce.

Homemade Italian Flatbread Piadina Romagnola and a Glass of Organic Sangiovese Superiore Red Wine

What is a glorious match!?! A warm Piadina Romagnola filled with some slices of tasty Prosciutto Crudo, creamy and melted Squacquerone Cheese and Arugula paired with a Glass of “E be di Smembar” Sangiovese Superiore Red Wine.

Even if it is not easy to find some of these ingredients outside of Italy, let’s treat yourself making Piadina Romagnola from scratch (quick and easy recipe below), and then fill it with what you prefer most and enjoy!

High acidity and moderate alcohol make Sangiovese a very food-friendly red wine. In specific, “E be di Smembar” Sangiovese Superiore brings to mind ripe berries, like raspberries, as well as the purple-leaf plum. It is fresh to the palate, with good minerality and sweet tannins.

It is an Organic Wine produced in a small, passionate, and family-owned wine producer located in a hilly terrain a few hundred meters high southwest of Cesena (Center of Italy – Emilia Romagna Region).

“E be di Smembar” Sangiovese Superiore Red Wine is imported to Denmark by Vinimondo.dk. Drop by the new Vinimondo.dk showroom to taste or buy it.

Classic Rustic Small Gnocchi from Sudtirol (Italy): Beetroot Spatzle with Butter, Sage and Walnuts

If you don’t have the typical spatzle maker device, the potato masher will work great to prepare these small gnocchi. You just have to pour the batter through the holes of the masher and let the spatzle fall gently into the boiling water. Don’t worry about the shape of the spatzle. They come from rustic cousine, so they have their fashion!

Thank EatGrim Shop Food for the beetroot! Check their website and get sustainable!

A Taste of the Italian Summer: Homemade Ravioli from Capri

If someone ask us which are the dishes that better represent Italy, we most likely would answer that the Ravioli Capresi is one of those. This is due to both the color of the dish in itself (red, white, and green: don’t they remind you of something? 🇮🇹 ), and to the aromas that emanate when you are cutting a Raviolo.

How can we thank our friend Francesca from Naples, (@asheepinthekitchen), for introducing us this wonderful Italian dish that is yet surprisingly easy to prepare?

Set aside just 20 minutes of your time and get ready to bring the scent of Italy to your table!

Orecchiette Pasta and Homemade Sweet Ricotta Calzoni from Matera – European Capital of Culture 2019

Thanks to Riccardo Casarico Photo for this scenic view of Matera – Italy

With this recipe we would like to celebrate the unique and appealing city of Matera, well known as the Stone City, and located in the Basilicata region – Southern Italy. This year Matera was awarded as the European Capital of Culture 2019, thanks to its unique beauty and history. Matera is famous worldwide for its Sassi: stone houses carved out of the caves and cliffs, dating back 7000 years ago. The best way to enjoy this surprising city is to get lost in the many alleys of this ancient part of the town. You will be surprised by the amount of churches, historical buildings and houses carved into the rock.

Thanks Rosanna and her sweet Mamma for giving us this delicious recipe from Matera. Traditionally, this dish is seasoned with a succulent pork meat tomato ragout and it’s prepared to celebrate the Mardi Gras lunch. In our version we made it easier to prepare, but not less tasty, as we seasoned it with a tomato sauce.

Red Beetroot Homemade Tagliolini Pasta with Gorgonzola and Walnuts

One of the most colourful vegetables that can be found, and that is widely used in the Nordic cuisine, is the red beetroot.

As the countdown to Christmas has started, we’ve tried out a few recipes with this ingredient. We have come to a conclusion, so today we are pleased to present to you all the one we like the most.
So here we are with our colourful dish: Red Beetroot Tagliolini that will cheer up the guests gathered around your Christmas table.

The week’s seasoning will be up to you: you are going to be able to decide wether preparing the seasoning with Gorgonzola Dolce (Sweet Gorgonzola), or Gorgonzola Piccante (Spicy Gorgonzola).

Whether you decide for one or the other, you might have to choose a wine to pair. A bold and structured Italian red wine (like a Chianti Classico Riserva or a Barolo) is always a good choice to pair with the Gorgonzola Piccante, while a Riesling or a Pinot Bianco go nicely with the Gorgonzola Dolce.

The best you can do now is to roll up your sleeves and start kneading. Have fun!
