Chocolate Truffles

Categories:

Chocolate is a product made from the seeds of the tropical plant Theobroma cacao. One of the main theories is that the plant was grown in the central part of South America specifically in Mexico. The first evidence of producing Cocoa is from 1100 BC. By the 16th century the cocoa and chocolate were not known on the Old Continent when the Spanish conquistadors brought it into Europe. After the industrial revolution, the chocolate becomes more and more popular. But despite its mass production, handmade chocolate is still cherished as an ulitmate delight.

Lasagna Bolognese ala Tony

Categories:

Lasagna was the first dish I made more than 4 years ago. Until then I had not even thought about any interest in cooking. I learned this recipe from my mother-in-law, and over time I added new ingredients.
Lasagna is a classic Italian dish in which pasta noodles and filling are placed on layers. You can find many versions for lasagna filling and this gives you the opportunity to experiment with new ingredients and tastes. What I learned from the numerous preparations is that in any case you should use the Bechamel sauce. In most shops you will find two types of lasagna noodles, one that requires boiling and the other are ready to use.  Although the instructions for the first type of lasagna noodles (that have to be boiled) say that a Bechamel sauce Unknown Object should not be used I recommend it in both cases.

I wanted to visit the Arabic countries for some time, especially when my sister moved there with her husband. After numerous invitations from their side we went to Kuwait. During the week spent there, we tried a wide range of Arabic dishes. Then we headed to Dubai, where I was fascinated by the Lebanese, Moroccan, Egyptian and Iraqi cuisine. Captured by the abundance of spices and mix of flavors I enjoyed humus, lebna, mutabel, shavarma, falafel and many other dishes. I still keep the memories of those magical places and will try to share them with you through the recipes.

Hello my name is Tony and I am addicted to cooking . I am not a professional chef but I love spending my evenings and weekends watching culinary shows, exploring gourmet websites and cooking for my family. This blog is my first attempt to share the recipes I love. Hope you will enjoy it and feel free to add your comments.
The first recipe I chose is a dish that dates back to the 17th century when Mr. François Pierre La Varenne , who is thought to be the first chef, was cooking for his master  Marquis d'Uxelles in France.
