[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] version with raspberries served with homemade vanilla ice cream (napkin by La FABBRICA del LINO, Seta decor collection) The fifth stop of our World Culinary ABC is Canada and finally I can say: I've been there — though my visit was limited to a few days in Toronto for a conference. The dish I chose to celebrate our virtual visit comes from the eastern part of Canada and New England. It is ca...

Everybody loves Caprese salad. Here's the recipe of my special version, with roasted cherry tomatoes: http://www.pulcetta.com/2011/05/insalata-caprese-con-pomodori-ciliegia-arrosto.html #tomatoes #salad #italianfood #italianstyle  
[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] I developed this recipe last summer and made it often, because the household loved it and we had a steady supply of organic cherry tomatoes, like the ones in the photo, until early November.

[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] matcha noodles dressed with Crescenza cheese The eleventh stop of our World Culinary ABC1 is Japan (Giappone). Japanese food is the first ethnic food I discovered after moving to California. There was a Japanese restaurant close to my husband's office and we often went there for dinner. When we chose our wedding date, we asked the Japanese lady who owned it to cater the reception. And so it ...

[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] fagiolina comes in two varieties: white and "rainbow" (the beautiful bicolor linen tablecloth is from La FABBRICA del LINO) When I visit Perugia, the city in central Italy where I was born and grew up, I always bring back some fagiolina del Lago Trasimeno a local variety of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata)1. Besides being pretty, fagiolina is a pleasure to eat: tender, buttery and flavorful. Good ...
