Grandpa’s Tart – Torta del Nonno from Tuscany
Today, in Italy the Grandpa’s day is being celebrated. We believe it’s a great occasion to honour and say thank you to all of our grandparents, who are always willing to help us when we need them. While I was thinking about which cake my daughter’s Grandpa would love to eat today, I thought about his taste when it comes to sweet treats. He is very fond of every kind of sweet food, but he has a penchant for chocolate. So, wanting to be impartial and still giving credit to all the Grandmothers, albeit satisfying his craving for chocolate, we went with this luscious version of the Grandma’s tart we already baked in the past. (Recipe here: Torta della Nonna).

Pasta with Black Cabbage Pesto
The black cabbage is a vegetable rich of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Therefore, this weekly recipe is not only quick but also healthy.
We are aware that black cabbage is not a common vegetable, especially out of Italy, but we’ve been lucky to find it at Mercatino delle verdure (Ca’- Cucina, Rebekkavej 49 – Hellerup).
If you are looking for some fresh products, imported from Italy, go visit the Mercatino delle verdure. We are sure you’ll find something to give an Italian twist to your table!

Cecina – Chickpea Flour Pancake
The cecina or farinata is a traditional street food from the Tuscan Riviera and the Liguria region. People use to eat a slice of cecina in an open focaccia bread named “schiacciata” for a snack or a quick dinner.
This dish is especially popular in Livorno (Tuscany region) where it is called “5 e 5”, because in the past 1 cecina and 1 focaccia costed only 5 lire each.
