21st March – Tiramisú Day: The Classic Version VS the Strawberry Version
This semifreddo cake, as the name suggests, is a partially frozen cake. You don’t need to use any special equipment other than a fridge.
Follow the step-by step recipe to preparing this refreshing and creamy Italian dessert, by using locally grown strawberries which are still at their best in many countries.
An Italian Molded Chilled Dessert: Panna Cotta
Panna cotta is an Italian classic, maybe the most popular dessert and well known all over the world. But not everybody knows that it is as popular as easy and quick to make.
I love this dessert and the great thing about panna cotta is that this is the perfect do-ahead dessert. You can make it up to two days ahead and keep it well-covered and chilled.
Panna cotta pairs well with fresh fruit, or with berries sauce (like the one we are going to show you here), or chocolate sauce, or caramel sauce or… as you can imagine the pairing possibilities are endless.

Christmas roll cake
Christmas is approaching and if you’ve already prepared all our previous recipes for your Christmas lunch (or Christmas Eve dinner), you could be tired of cooking.
But I’m sorry to say that you still have to prepare a Christmas cake. 😉
Given that there is little time left, we suggest you to prepare this Christmas roll. It will take no more than 45 minutes to prepare it, and you’ll end your Christmas lunch in style.

Vanilla ice-cream with warm berries
This summer we’ve been hiking all around the “Three Peaks of Lavaredo” (also called in Italian Tre Cime di Lavaredo), the best know mountain groups in the Dolomites, and after three hours of hiking, we stopped, exhausted, at a Malga to eat something refreshing. And believe us that it’s nothing more restorative than a homemade vanilla ice-cream with fresh picked berries, to recharge the batteries.
If this weekend you are planning a cosy dinner together with your friends (…and you don’t have time to prepare a cake), treat yourself and your guest with this vanilla ice-cream with warm berries. And we guarantee you that, after that, you would like to organise a tour of the Dolomites!
Mint & licorice Bavarese
The Danes, as much as the Italians, are notoriously addicted to liquorice. The most famous Italian liquorice grows in Calabria, particularly in the Ionian coast, where the microclimate enhances the taste of liquorice.
This week we decided to prepare a liquorice Bavarese, adding a note of freshness through the use of mint leaves. The most daring could try using the Danish salty liquorice (if so, let us know! :-)).
Crostata with Strawberries
It’s strawberry season! If you go in the city or all around Denmark you can easily buy potatoes, peas and strawberries.
Today we give you a very tasty and lovely cake. The bottom layer is made of pasta frolla (similar to shortbread), the filling is a delicious cream made from ricotta and the top is entirely covered with sweet strawberries, of course!Continue reading “Crostata with Strawberries”
