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!

Delicious Pork Tenderloin with Apples

Trentino Alto Adige is a beautiful region in northern Italy, well known for the  Dolomites mountains, the Garda Lake and its apple orchards. Many recipes which come from this region are made with the huge variety of apples growing there.

This week’s recipe combines pork meat with apples. The ones we used are from my garden in Denmark, not really from Trentino, but they still are crunchy and juicy 😉

If you also decide to make our Pork Tenderloin with Apples, we suggest you to sip along a Primitivo di Manduria DOP “Collezione Bellisario” 2016 – Cantine due Palme. This red wine, made with Primitivo grapes grown in the vineyards of Apulia region has a broad and complex aroma, a full bodied and velvety taste, which is a perfect match with pork meat.

A Fragrant Slice of Apple Strudel

I have seen and eaten many variations of apple strudel, but this recipe is the one I love most, and that I would never ever cross off my “Ricettario“.

I actually didn’t like apple strudel until the day that my mother in law served this delicious looking dessert on the dinner table. I enjoyed it so much, I immediately asked for the recipe. It was inherited from her mom who was of Hungarian origin, yet the only change I made to the recipe was to use ready-made puff pastry instead of hand making it.

I do hope that you’ll give this recipe a try and that it will also find a page in your “Ricettario”!

Mountain – Style Fresh Tagliatelle with Chanterelle Mushrooms

The sweet taste and intense and aromatic flavour the Chanterelle mushrooms (Finferli or Gallinacci in Italian) give off during cooking make them suitable to be prepared in many different recipes. Crunchy as the champignons and fleshy as the Porcini they can be a side dish, as well as a seasoning for a pasta or for a polenta based dish.

Today we are sharing a flavoursome dish that reminds us of the mountain huts in Trentino Alto Adige, where you can usually savour a cuisine that is rich in mountain ingredients, Mediterranean flavours and German influences. Meanwhile, you can enjoy  your stay between the Dolomites and the Garda Lake.

We made this recipe with Italian Chanterelles we found at Ca’ – Cucina, (Rebekkavej 49 – Hellerup, Denmark).
