We love leeks in our house; we braise them, roast them, sauté them, basically eat them in any way we can. Tonight was a bit chilly so I thought a lovely leek and potato soup sounded good.
How delicious does this mozzarella & tomato bruschetta look? No filter here- look at how red those tomatoes are!!
Look at these fabulous gluten-free pumpkin ravioli Gianni made! He is quite the expert since his girlfriend is a celiac. Pasta for celiacs can be tasty and just as delicious as "regular" pasta. If you're a celiac, let us know when you book a lesson so we can create a special menu for you. You'll want to taste Gianni's gluten-free tiramisu!
Puntarelle are a typical Roman side dish that are only available in the winter into early spring. These are the roots of a local chicory plant that are peeled, sliced and eaten raw. When served with a pungent anchovy vinaigrette, they are just delicious. Crunchy, salty with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. You can buy them like this- cleaned and ready to go- at most farmer's markets in Rome. But often they are cleaned in a hurry, and so many bites remain woody and tough. If you take the time to peel them and clean them properly at home, it's worth the effort.
