Carrot Cream Soup

Categories:

Cream soups are my favorites so don't be surprised that you will encounter this type of soup quite often in my blog. As with any cream soup, it is important to reach the ideal consistency. To reach this consistency I have made several attempts  and my little princess was testing all of them as she is my best critic. I have full confidence in this recipe as she liked it the most and did not stop until the bowl was empty.

Shrimp Tempura

Most recipes in my blog result from my personal experiences that I later try to recreate here.
We were in London with my wife after a long and tiring morning along Oxford street we found ourselves in a Japanese sushi bar located in one of the small streets nearby. We sat on the  charis in front of a long line with bowls full of sushi, shrimps and other delicacies. Some of the dishes were familiar to me because I'm a big fan of sushi and I plan to share a sushi recipe soon.

Amaretti Biscuits

Categories:

When I hear someone talking about amaretti, the smell of the delicious almond liquer rises in me. These amaretti biscuits are a mixture of almond flour, egg whites and sugar that become an irresistible temptation.
It is argued that the roots of this recipe come from Venice and more specifically the Renaissance period. During all these years, the recipe and its proportions have changed and evolved.

Semifreddo with almonds Amaretto biscuits

Categories:

The story of how I came across this delicious and easy to prepare dessert is quite interesting. My wife decided to surprise me with a dinner and took me to an Italian trattoria in the city center. There I tried for the first time this dessert with mascarpone, amaretto biscuits, cream and Amaretto liqueur.

Lettuce, Peas and Mint Soup

Categories:

I'm a big fan of cream soups and I love to experiment in this direction, so I decided to try something new. I was not sure whether it's worth the effort. My little princess, which is only a year and a half old licked her fingers and her small mouth says "More" This was the best way to be sure if it was worth it.
