Risotto with mushrooms

Risotto is one of the emblematic recipes of the Italian cuisine and there are some tips for its preparation I want to share with you.  There are only two types of rice suitable for risotto- Arborio and Carnaroli and you should use broth for its cooking as a rule. The secret of good risotto lies in the way of adding the broth and its good absorption.

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

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.

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.
