Wild garlic Carbonara

April 26th, 2018 | main dishes

Carbonara wild style: Instead of bacon, Parma ham enhances the spaghetti – and wild garlic gives a special touch in terms of colour and flavour.

Yes, I know, no Italian would make a carbonara with cream. But probably neither with wild garlic, right? So, what’s tasty is what’s allowed – and it looks so fresh and appetizing.

Cicchetti mit Pfifferlingen und Parma Schinken Crisp August 25th, 2020 | Vorspeisen

Cicchetti with chanterelles – almost like in Venice

When I think of Venice and Cicchetti I start daydreaming. Normally my dearest captain would be on the Adriatic Sea at this time of year, I would certainly be with him on board and we would have made some nice Cicchetti tours through the beautiful lagoon city. Would. Would have. Subjunctive. Nothing is normal in these Corona times. The ships are not sailing, they have been on anchorage for months. Well, if we can’t go to Venice, we’ll do the cicchetti at home.
