A Guide to Eating & Drinking in Venice
From the phone calls mum and I exchanged over the holidays, I grasped Venice and the surrounding countryside have been particularly foggy this year. Foggy with the sort of fog that prevents from seeing past one's nose, that never burns out, that, like a fil...

Zabaione al Caffé for #LoveMalawiCoffee
One of the first exchanges between Jesse and I on the night I landed in Sydney went something like this: ‘Did you bring the big moka pot?’ ‘I had to leave it. My bag was overweight’ ‘Oooh Val…’ ‘Well, we have the little one that you brought...’ ‘Mmm’ He was...

Padova: A Food City Guide
Padova holds a special place in my heart. You might know by now that it's  where I lived during my undergraduate years , the first big town where I moved to live on my own – or rather, with other people other than family. I recall some about courses and cla...

Uova al Pomodoro coi Peperoni
Eggs seem to be the last thing I eat before leaving for a long trip, and the first when I come back . We made eggs on that rainy Monday we left our little Wimbledon flat behind – white walls , view of the roofs and all. We felt nostalgic. The apartment was ...

Zucchine alla Scapece
Before you start reading – this long premise hasn't much to do with today's recipe. Somehow, though, fried courgettes seemed like an appropriate way to celebrate five years or so of blogging – more than cake, even. I don't say this lightheartedly, but you s...

Venetian Frittelle for Carnival
For the first time this year,  nonna decided not to whip up the traditional Carnival fry up. The daughters and sons, nieces and nephews and the whole extended family were left without her signature frittelle , favette and crostoli . Empty handed, forced to ...

A Polenta Fruit Cake from the Heart of Veneto
Happy new-ish year! Hope you had some lovely, peaceful, restful, glass-clinking, food-filled holidays. Ours were unusual: we spent a big chunk of them at the beach  eating avocado on toast in true Aussie spirit while humming Frank Sinatra's Christmas songs....

Flourless Pumpkin Cake
As you might have grasped from the latest updates , I am no longer in Veneto. A few things have changed since the last post , mostly regarding the fact that I put a few miles between me and the homeland. Long story short, I am now in sunny Sydney.  The plan...

Girolle Mushroom and Speck Risotto
Five years have passed since that gloomy night when, standing in front of the stove in my tiny kitchen in via Peschiera in Bra, I showed Jesse how to make a proper Venetian risotto. We weren't dating yet, not officially at least; but my kitchen had quickly ...

Jujube Polenta Cookies
I realise now that a long time has past since my last appearance on this blog. A few things have happened in the meantime - some pretty major changes that are part of the reason why I have been a serial absent as of late. The biggest news is that London has...
