Cicchetti Bresaola rolls with rocket
July 6th, 2019 | starter
These Cicchetti rolls are easy to prepare and eye-catching on any Cicchetti buffet. Simple, honest finger food, what more could you want?
Bresaola is an air-dried beef ham. My captain often brings it directly from Italy. It can certainly also be replaced by Coppa, which is a little more marbled with fat, by Bündner Fleisch or other air-dried ham variants

And this is how the wife of the captain does it
If there are any salad leftovers, put them in the fridge – in a plastic bag or better in a food storage box! You can use the rocket leftovers the next day on the school or office breads or in the evening in the salad!

Piedmontese chocolate pudding with vanilla quince
A beautiful and strong coffee, anyone? Then, after a substantial meal, this specialty from the Piedmont is the right! In Piedmont, this pudding is called also Bonèt, because its form probably reminds something to a hat or a chef’s hat. Another story around the Bonèt comes from the Langhe. It states that one puts so to speak “a hat” – a crown – on dinner with this dessert. Anyhow, it tastes excellently and even better when prepared the day before. Incredibly handy when you expect guests.
PS: The Vanilla Quinces are a perfect match!read more

At home, we love the first asparagus in the season quite classically with smoked ham, Sauce Hollandaise and the first new potatoes. But then we love to have varieties.

What does Ratatouille have in common with Frankfurt Green Sauce?
Granted, at first glance (or better: bite) not much. But surely there are infinitely many, different opinions about the “what” and “how” for both dishes. What exactly are the ingredients and how exactly is it prepared. One thing seems indisputable: tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini and peppers are a must, everything else can.read more
