Sardinian Seadas are traditional sweets served as dessert in most traditional restaurants in Sardinia. If you have never seen them before, Seadas look like giant ravioli that are filled with cheese, fried and covered in sugar or honey. Admittedly, it doesn’t look like much, but this very simple dessert combines cheese and honey, one of my favourite combinations, and therefore I often crave it! It … Continue reading Sardinian Seadas
Posting this classic quiche Lorraine on IG was a major success. I was very surprised that a lot of people asked for the recipe. Thinking of it, while the French might have grown up making quiches, in Italy – where we called these “savoury tarts” – it’s a thing only in certain regions, and in many other countries they come ready from the supermarket. I … Continue reading Classic Quiche Lorraine
Typically served with tapas or olives and cheese, picos are mini bread sticks that are incredibly irresistible because of their crunchiness and ease…they are in fact way to easy to eat – you’ve been warned!

From my Italian perspective, they are the short and fat cousins of grissini and … Continue reading Picos – Spanish Bread Sticks

Tapping on my husband’s Spanish heritage, we often turn to cold soups to beat the heat. Whether you serve it with croutons like a soup, or you serve it in a glass with ice and a straw like a bloody Mary, Gazpacho is certainly one of those dishes that keeps you cool. It’s also very practical when all you have to do is just take it out of the fridge and prepare some garnishes to go with it. Tomato, cucumber and green pepper are the base of this soup, and while you can follow the recipe for guidelines, you can add more or less of each ingredient, to fit your taste.
We just love Hummus. The well known Middle Eastern cream is versatile and perfect for every occasion. So much that we would hardly imagine a gathering without it served to accompany crudités or some crunchy bread. And we love homemade hummus even more, whether it’s the strong garlic flavour, or the extra virgin olive oil to do the trick, you have the power to make it your own and enrich it with your favourite ingredients.
