Porcini risotto #2017

So here we are. Happy 2017! I feel so thrilled like never before for this new year beginning. I have a lot of new projects, a new collaboration starting soon in Milan in the food sector. I am fully committed in eating healthy and going to the gym regularly and most of all my motto…

Happy birthday Mum – choco cake

For me Christmas is such a difficult time of the year…food..is EVERYWHERE. Not only do I eat on Christmas eve, on Christmas day, the second day of Christmas we eat the leftovers…on the 27th it’s my mum’s bday so…food again. And with food more presents of course. Every year I bake a special cake, different…

Winter salad

Hello November! I am starting to love this month, even if this is the worst time of the year for me: days getting shorter and darker, leaves falling, grey and rainy days in Milan. Four years ago I moved to Milan and I started a new life, finishing my studies and now I am still working…

Summer colours – baked eggplants

Summer is here! I am so thrilled. Even if this would be the first year with no summer vacations it doesn’t matter so much as I am back in Milan, doing the job I have always wanted… I will have time to rest later. And in the end Milan is so full of nice places…

Felix – A tiny place in Navigli

It’s not a secret I am deeply in love with Milan and the Navigli area. It is like a micro cosmo where you can live your entire life without the need to go somewhere else in the city (ok for a short period perhaps, then you need to explore the city). Here you can find…

Baked artichokes

Artichokes are so good and if you carefully consider them they seem a difficult food to handle. How shall I cut them? Clean them? So often we prefer frozen ones. They are good but fresh ones are the best veggies of this months. When living in Rome every Saturday I went to the market at…

Vegan moussaka – Greek

One thing I always repeat is that “Great changes are always preceded by chaos”. Well, this time it is quite different. I have decided to take my own decision without waiting for any change, I made my own change. I decided that life will bring the plans I am creating. Enough waisted time waiting and…

Fasolakia Yiahni -Green Beans

I am so much into Greek food these last weeks. It is like I am trying to re-discover my origins, to find my Greek roots. And food has always played a major role in my family. I still remember yia-yia (grandma) chopping onions, cooking meat or spanakorizo (rice with fresh spinach) or preparing desserts with…

Roasted chickpeas salad with halloumi cheese

Yes I must admit it. I have a true obsession on halloumi lately. I found this salty cheese in Rome and now that I’m back home I have take almost ten packs of it with me, putting them into my luggage on the train (and hoping they won’t break otherwise the salty water will have…

Burger diverso – Lentil Burger

Questo burger è la perfetta alternativa se avete amici vegetariani o vegani a cena o anche per chi ha voglia di provare qualcosa di diverso. Nato come un esperimento qualche mese fa l’ho rifatto come pranzo post allenamento. Le lenticchie, così come i legumi, sono un’ottima fonte di proteine, saziano e hanno un basso contenuto…

Noodles my way

Pasta. Io la pasta non la mangio mai. Perchè poi? Non mi soddisfa… ho bisogno di qualcosa di più. Sazia è vero però mi lascia sempre un non so chè di insoddisfazione dopo. E poi finisco sempre per condirla con pomodorini, rucola e grana o con feta e pepe nero. Però una pasta mi piace…
