In the early spring and summer it’s common to see in the countryside of Northern Italy a little group of friends walking along the sides of the road or along a fresh river, gathering wild asparagus. “Asparagus hunting” is a popular activity in the rural areas of Italy.

The classics should never be forgotten!
We strongly believe that before being able to adventure into the world of Italian food, you need to master the classics, you need to make them first and make sure you’re damn good at it and only then you can start thinking something else. I know some people disagree with us, but we’ve seen so many bad and totally unbalanced recipes of the “classics” cooked by Italian people that we just felt we should let this out first – start with the classic!
To improve the way you understand recipes or how you combine flavours, the first thing to do is go to back to the classics and start cooking!
That’s why we first cooked and cooked all together the “classics” to be sure that the recipes were the same and the right ones and then we decided to share them with some of our not Italian friends.
When we say “classics” we are obviously talking about the pasta alla carbonara and the tiramisú.
