dessert

Hi Everybody, I hope you spent a nice Summer! I'm just back to Venice and one of the first things I did was to go back to Rialto Market... I don't have a recipe today, but simply a "shopping suggestion" for all of you who is currently in Venice: buy the white-flesh donut peaches, sold in most of the stalls these day at the Market, you don't even have to peel them, they're small, white-fleshed and sooooo sweet... ideal as a snack for these sunny days. I thought about preparing a tart with them, but they're so good I think the best way to consume them is... just eat them!

Hi everybody! High season has indeed started and time to cook is not so much, but this dessert is so easy, quick and most of all delicious that I couldn't resist sharing it...

250g milk cream

250-300g strawberries

4 tbsp sugar

Happy New Year everybody! Hope you all spent some nice holidays ! Are you filled up with sweets, meat, tortellini, cotechino and so on? Here is a nice way to use pandoro leftover (if you have, but after Christmas pandoros and panettoni are on sale and they're cheaper than bread!), 5 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to cook, 5 minutes to eat. Here we go!

For 12 mini-tatins

2 pandoro slices (1 cm thick)

1 pear

1 banana

1 orange

brown sugar

a small piece of butter

Back to the oven... a quiet Saturday morning, slightly rainy and chilly, blueberries and a few apricots gave me the inspiration for an easy tart, ready for tea-time, waiting for tomorrow's Regata Storica.

2 eggs

120g sugar

125g ricotta cheese

100g plain yogourth

5 apricots

a handful of blueberries

100cc sunflower oil

1/2 bag baking powder
