This asparagus dip is very simple, incredible fast to make and soo good! I love combine the intense taste of asparagus with the sourly flavor of Dijon mustard. Served with chips or nachos this dip is great for a party, but it’s perfect also aside grilled meats!
Stuffed mushrooms are a perfect recipe for party! Tasty bites flavored with creamy egg and cheese filling, soo good! Stuffing my mushrooms, I opted for Gruyere. I love this cheese, it’s perfect to be melted, but Italian Fontina, or Provolone, or Gouda are delicious as well. Same thing for the herbs: today I choose parsley, but sometimes I opt for fresh oregano or dried mint, try them on and let me know!
I love a good veal stew so much! If you desire a good stew out from the winter, this is your recipe! The veal meat is more delicate than beef, and it pairs perfectly with asparagus and mushrooms. A good white wine and fresh sage donate a tasty sour flavor. A suggestion: avoid cheap wine otherwise the sauce will be too acid!
This crostini polenta recipe is very simple and perfect for parties and gatherings! Traditionally the polenta crostini are shaped squared, but you can reduce them into the shape you prefer. They pair perfectly with melted cheese, but with grilled vegetables or meats as well.
Fried artichokes is a classic recipe in Rome. This is one of the most popular Roman dish, prepared since XVI Century in the restaurants located inside the Italian capital historic center. Originally, the fried artichokes (named “carciofi alla Giudia” in Italian) were prepared for Easter gatherings, but currently they are served daily from November to April. The artichokes are fried in two times with different temperatures. Thanks to this method, the artichokes will be well cooked and crispy! Traditionally, the artichokes used for this recipes are called “mamma romana”: a local artichoke famous to be very tender and without hairy heart. To make this dish, today I choose the baby artichokes: thanks to its tenderness, it is perfect for this recipe! Serve the fried artichokes as appetizer or aside meats, eggs or fried seafood. A suggestion: prepare more fried artichokes you think are enough, because they will finish as fast as your guests can say “one more, please!”

The cipollini onions braised in red wine is a classic recipe combined with strew, steaks or eggs recipes. I love prepare them for family feasts, everytime the cipollini are a success!
