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!
