New Year’s Eve in Italy, as for so many other special occasions, means a special meal, the cenone di Capodanno, or ‘big supper’. Like Christmas Eve, this meal is often “lean” or fish based—at least before midnight, when it’s time to break out the…
Cocktail di gamberetti, Shrimp Cocktail prepared in the Italian manner, is a simple but elegant way to start a New Year's Eve dinner.

No one understands simplicity quite like the Tuscans. As Leonardo da Vinci famously said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.  So true, and this rustic Grape Focaccia, which the Tuscans call Schiacciata all’uva, is a case in point. Almost austere…

This iconic summer dish—and, as far as I’m concerned, it’s still summer—is one of many recipes for stuffed peppers in the Italian repertoire. Tuna Stuffed Peppers are a Neapolitan classic, while other recipes call for a vegetarian eggplant or bread…
Italian Meat Stuffed Peppers are an iconic summer dish substantial enough to serve as either an antipasto or a second course.

Here’s a dish that’s perfect for a spur of the moment meal, but is so beautiful and refined it could also serve as the starter for an elegant dinner: Vellutata di cavolfiore, or Cream of Cauliflower Soup. A vellutata—like its twin the crema, see the Notes…

Lent—la Quaresima in Italian—is the roughly six week period on the Catholic calendar between Ash Wednesday and Easter. Traditionally a period of self-sacrifice and fasting, in the old days the faithful were expected to abstain from eating meat and rich…
Baccalà lesso—boiled cod fish—napped with a light lemon and parsley sauce, makes for a simple but surprisingly tasty Lenten dish.

I lived in Rome for over ten years, but in all that time, minestra di arzilla e broccoli, or Skate and Romanesco Broccoli Soup, somehow passed me by. I belatedly discovered this homey soup only recently, while perusing some old cookery books I picked up…
Minestra di arzilla e broccoli, a light but flavorful Christmas Eve favorite, is a soup made from two unusual ingredients, skate and Roman broccoli.

When I think of Tuscan cuisine, first and foremost, even before the classic bistecca alla fiorentina as wonderful as that is, I think of its hearty vegetable soups. The best known of these soups is probably  the ribollita, of course. But the most…
Tuscan cuisine is known for its hearty soups. Farinata di cavolo nero, a kind of minestrone thickened with cornmeal, may be the most memorable of them all.

There are many ways in Italian cookery to put up food, relics of the days before refrigeration and freezing and commercial processing. There is straight up canning, of course. I can remember Angelina’s yearly day-long ritual of putting up summer tomatoes…
A good example of the "sott'aceto" technique of preserving vegetables, la Giardiniera brings together a whole cornucopia of the season's bounty.

Chicory and Beans is one of those lean dishes that Angelina practically lived on weekdays. Like many good southern Italians, she was what we might call today a ‘flexitarian‘—living mostly on vegetables, saving meat for Sundays and other special occasions.…

Lawyer by day, cook by night
Introduction

I’m an international lawyer by day, but when I get home at night, there’s nothing I like better to do than cook. I write one of the better known Italian food blogs on the web, Memorie di Angelina

I’ve always loved to cook, ever since I was barely tall enough to peer over the top of a stove. Cooking is the best way I know to unwind from a stressful day’s work. And sharing the dishes I make is a profound way to connect with friends and loved ones.

You can read more about me on the About page of my blog Memorie di Angelina.
