Chicken, mushroom and bacon pie

I didn’t know who Nigella Lawson was. That’s awful and unforgivable, I know. But the moment my friend V. introduced me to her books I became a huge fan. We’ve been trying some of her recipes but I have to admit that the ones included in her book Nigella express are our fave because they are all about good fast food. Everything in that book is easy, comforting and delicious. Besides, the recipes require almost no time to be on the plate ready to be eaten.

Yummy weekend in Copenhagen

We spent this weekend in Copenhagen. It was a last minute decision and it was wonderful! We enjoyed every minute of it! Copenhagen is one of our favourite cities, it has so much to offer and the people are gorgeous and kind. Since it’s Monday and Monday means delicious food for The slow pace, here you have some yummy addresses in case you visit the city and you don’t know where to eat: Lagkagehuset: a great place to buy all kinds of Danish pastries, sandwiches and small salads, if you don’t want to do carbs. But we recommend that you try carbs here. Lots of them. If you are on the go you can grab a couple of their delicious sandwiches or even have a quick but amazing breakfast at one of its different locations. Ol&Grill: if you love meat, you’ll love this place. Fantastic hamburgers and sirloin steaks. Look at that picture!!!Placed in the famous Nyhavn, it can be full of tourists but well, if you are there you probably are a tourist!! The …

Fantastic recipes

I’ve been looking for inspiration lately. For me that means spending more hours on the internet, buying tons of magazines and trying to watch more films and read more books. In the past few weeks I’ve attended a cinema workshop, I went back to reading in Italian and I’ve found out that I love this magazine. So, as you can see this inspiration search is not only productive, but lots of fun too! Of course, I’ve been trying new recipes (sometimes with a little success, sadly) and today I wanted to share with you one of the greatest food blogs that I’ve discovered recently: Spork Fork Bacon. I honestly don’t know how I have managed to live without it! Here you have my favourite recipes, if you’d like to see… – Lightly roasted green beans – A Simple bloody mary – Pumpkin Hummus – Almond butter soba noodles with garlic shrimps – And the most amazing Brie filled baklava!

11 things we love about London

We wanted to make a getaway this month and spend a nice long weekend in London. But as they say, life got in the way. So sadly, we won’t be able to visit this fantastic place this moth.  Nevertheless, we’ve decided to make a little hommage to London and share with you the 11 things we love about it.

Risi e bisi

This is one of my favourite dishes. It’s a Venetian recipe that my grandmother used to prepare all the time. Sadly, we lost her recipe when we lost her seven years ago. I’ve tried to recreate it since then and, although the results never match her delicious creamy spicy Risi e Bisi, I’ve came up with a quite nice dish.

Homemade pizza margherita

I’ve eaten tons of pizzas in my life, but none has ever tasted better than my mother’s homemade pizza margherita. She has this theory: to really know if a place serves really good pizza, you have to order marguerita, the most humble and simple version of pizza. Well, she knows what she’s talking about because she makes the BEST margherita. And you are lucky: she is sharing her recipe (which was my grandmother’s recipe) with us today!

Maldon Sea Salt

Hello everyone! How’s your Monday going? Today we would like to dedicate a moment to one of our favourite ingredients: Maldon Sea Salt. We discovered it a few years ago and since then we can’t cook without it. These amazing little sea salt flakes enhance flavours like no other condiment does. This salt is hand-harvested, really made by nature, which makes its flavour unique. Your kitchen needs Maldon Sea Salt. Its pureness will make all your dishes stand out. You can find it in most of the food halls of any department store, but don’t be scared by the gourmet appearance of this product. You can really use it in your everyday recipes. We love to sprinkle a little bit of Maldon salt on our roasted or grilled vegetables and even in our cookies. We pretty much use it in every meal! What about you? Do you have any favourite ingredient? Images via Maldon Salt
