Onion Cake with Pears, Blue Cheese and Walnut

Onion cake with pear and walnuts

October 7th, 2018 | main dishes

Onion cake belongs to fall like falling leaves, mushrooms, fog and a bit of sentiment that summer is going on. This autumn, I changed my classic a bit and turned it into a tart. And what goes well with onions? Bacon, of course, and pears and blue cheese. A few walnuts on top – and the beautiful autumn soul warmer is ready.

Sure, I’m an absolute supporter of “homemade food”. I try to buy as little processed food as possible. Convenience normally is not on our table. With this onion cake, however, a ready-made pizza dough from the cooling shelf is a great alternative if things need to be done quickly. Thus, I can turn a blind eye – after all, you have already shed enough tears when cutting onions…

Who does not like blue cheese, can replace it with grated Parmesan!

Venice going nuts with Vogalonga

Venice is almost like coming home. I was here already so often to go aboard with my dearest captain. This time he picked me up on a Sunday morning in June on the shuttle bus from Treviso airport, and took me almost immediately in a “quiet, idyllic restaurant right on the canal with food as at home in a Venetian family.” The food was indeed as promised. The atmosphere… quite different…

Bari – seafood and pasta

Raw fish and seafood – everyone immediately thinks of Japan. Sushi, clear. Or of Peru. Ceviche, too. But what about Italy? In Puglia – and especially in the region around Bari – raw fish and raw seafood are indispensable to the restaurant menus. As indispensable as the orecchiette pasta in the streets of Bari.
