Quickly Baked Giga Oysters from Limfjord (Denmark) and Italian Wines

Oysters? You can love them or hate them! In our recipe we prepared the oysters to make you love them, adding a teaspoon of sour cream and a drizzle of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. The oysters in themselves are an aphrodisiac but by adding some Parmigiano, you’ll just find yourself falling in love with them.

How to Quick-Dry a Fresh Thyme Bundle

After having enjoyed for a few days a marvellous bouquet with colourful thyme leaves, it’s time to preserve its scent and color for the upcoming months. For a long-lasting flavour of your fresh thyme use the following quick-dry method.

Thyme is such an easy herb to use and it can be added in many recipes.  We love using dried Thyme in oven-baked fish, in steak seasoning, and even if it might sound quircky, in some Italian Spoon Dessert!

A Truly Italian Recipe: Spaghetti with Cruschi Peppers and Breadcrumbs

During the recent event named “True Italian Taste” organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Switzerland, we got to know many Italian products which are the feather in the cap of the Italian cuisine, among many excellent wine brands. The first of all, the Cruschi Peppers, also called Peperoni Cruschi or Peperoni di Senise from the Basilicata, the Region they represent. The Peperoni di Senise are sun dried in the late summer and then fried to become Cruschi (which means crunchy). When they are fried, they are very good as a ready-to-eat snack, but also good to add a strong flavour to many dishes.

We have to thank Da Vinzi, an Italian wholesaler who imports many niche products from the Basilicata region to Switzerland, for making us taste his Peperoni Cruschi, the bronze drawn Spaghetti and his extra virgin olive oil. All these high quality products made the following recipe a sophisticated dish, despite its simplicity. To paraphrase the Da Vinzi slogan : “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.
