Italian Pinzimonio: a Simple Way to enjoy Fresh Vegetables

This summer, thanks to Erin from the Oregon girl around the world blog, we got to know the online shop EatGrim Shop Food. The company’s mission is to be sustainable, creating a new quality standard for everything that is edible. They deliver boxes filled with “ugly” (GRIM means “ugly” in Danish), organic and surplus fruits and vegetables directly to your doorstep. Even though the products look imperfect, they maintain their freshness and taste, making them great for preparing anything you wish, while being eco-friendly.

From our colourful box we picked up spring onions, which we thought could be dipped in a Pinzimonio. Follow our recipe and don’t let the products of the earth be wasted!

End-of-Summer Figs, Goat Cheese and Ham Canape’

These last minute canapĂ©s are perfect to start an end-of-summer party. By using seasonal figs (black or green equally match well for these canapĂ©s) accompanied by the tanginess of a good goat cheese, you’ll offer your guests a flavour explosion.

We found the sweet black figs at Ca’ – Cucina, Take Away, Eat – In, Catering and Events (Rebekkavej 49 – Hellerup, Denmark). They are back after the summer with plenty of seasonal offers we warmly invite you to visit.

Sweeter and Delicate Liptauer CanapĂ©s from Venezia Giulia Region – Italy

Liptauer is a creamy and tangy cheese quite popular across multiple countries. It is no surprise that there are many variations on the spread. We find Liptauer in many groceries in Trieste (the main city in the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia) as this cheese is very appreciated in the north east of Italy. We opted to make Liptauer using ricotta and mascarpone cheese instead of sheep cheese, and sweet paprika instead of hot paprika.  Our version is sweeter and delicate, perfect to be garnished with pecan nuts.

If you want to know where you can taste Liptauer canapé’ during your trip in Italy, try this newborn and useful service: www.lastaurant.com. Just send a message via Messenger to Lastaurant and ask for any kind of information and tips on restaurants that are in an area between 0.5 and 20 km from you.  It’s worth trying it!
