Italy


Bacalao

Cookalong with Frida and Ciana last night. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna, Sweden. We made Bacalao. It is a dish with a long history and found in so many countries. It came to Norway and Möre and Romsdal where I come from hundreds of years ago from Portugal. We made it the Norwegian way today. We had to use fresh Fish since we didn’t have the dried salted cod made in Norway since the Viking times and now exported all over the world to Bacalao lovers.

Christmas Inspired Foccacia

Focaccia, known and loved in Italy and abroad, is yeasted flat bread which belongs essentially to the northern shores of the Mediterranean and has its origin in classical antiquity. I love to decorate the Foccacia bread and this time I was inspired by Christmas ahead of me.

Meatballs in Vegetable and Tomatoe Sauce

These meatballs in vegetable and tomatoe sauce made from scratch will take you to Italy, France and Sweden. Meatballs is a favorite in Sweden. Even Italians love meatballs and serve them in tomatoe sauce. In this sauce I have added even a touch of France with herbs from Provence.

Traditional Italian Corzetti

Corzetti is an Italian pasta which tradition goes back to the medieval ages. Corzetti is small circles of pasta with a flowery decoration stamped on it. This edible art is made by using elaborate wood stamps. Making them at home is quite unusual today as it takes time and finding corzetti stamps is not that easy. However, there are still few artisan woodcarvers, especially in the East Italian Riviera, who work to preserve this ancient culinary art and carves gorgeous garnishing stamps just like centuries ago.
