Carnevale di Venezia

Carnevale time 
In little bit more than 2 weeks will be Carnevale and Venezia will turn in a kaleidoscope of colors, exquisite and glamorous masks and costumes, making walking around the Calle ( street in Venice) an extraordinary adventure for everyone that wants to spot the most amazing costume.
Carnevale is also the time to indulge in food before the beginning of Lent. One of the pasta dishes that I truly love is Lasagne di Carnevale, a concoction of ricotta cheese, boiled eggs, salami, and meat sauce. This dish will impress your guest and probably take you all of Lent to recover from it. Carnevale is also an occasion to indulge in sweet pastries and fritters, here is a super short list of it: frittelle, lattughe, castagnole, frittelle di mele, Pignolata  and so much more.
I will start posting recipes very soon.
Hope I will be able to bring Carnevale to all your houses by sharing my recipes and some decorations with you.
Frying will start soon…so lets keep detoxing till then.

Mom’s stuffing

DSC_1583

My mom makes a killer stuffing for guinea fowl and for my sons birthday we were out of ideas on what to add to an already long list of food; we wanted to give something new and not the usual stuff.

The idea came to my mom the evening before the birthday and let me tell you… that was a brilliant one.
The ingredients that she uses are very simple and in every kitchen counter. The particularity of this stuffing is the sage that brings this stuffing to another level.
We decide to make small balls out of the stuffing and fried, can be baked as well.
The stuffing balls had a glorious success and now they are a staples on every gathering that we have.
If you try this recipe please leave your comment I am sure will be a huge hit at your parties as well.

What not to like about this tart……the tartness of the raspberry sweetened by the caramel and the bitterness of the chocolate balance the most amazing tart ever.
