  • COOKING BASES: How to make PERFECT gnocchi

    Gnocchi are perfect little ridged plump dumplings made with potatoes, flour (and eggs). And virtually anything you would like to add – be it beets for purplish/pinkish gnocchi, vitelottes for purple gnocchi, squid ink for black gnocchi, yams, pumpkin or saffron for a dark yellow/orangey tone and spinach and greens for green gnocchi. Very simple to prepare but, still, gnocchi have their downfalls, like water, the ratio potatoes/flour, kneading and the …

  • Perfect Apple Dumplings

    These little apple dumplings always bring me back to the sweetest days of my childhood. My dad would take me away with him for a few days and we would play, eat and enjoy each other.

  • Destructured Nonna’s Rustic Burgers

    It all started with me running out of Parmigiano (gulp!) to make Nonna’s rustic burgers, so I came up with small crisps and a de-structured creation. Her original recipe calls for ground meat, eggs, Parmigiano, bread crumbs, parsley, salt & pepper mixed together, shaped in the form of a burger and grilled or seared. This reinterpretation wants the breadcrumbs sautéed in olive oil, parsley and …

Ladies confessed their night-time craving for chocolate and guys laughed about how many different ways we have not to be caught stealing sweets. Me? I just …
