I am passionate about cooking, and through this blog I intend to communicate with other 'amateur cooks' to exchange recipes, tips, and why not, friendship.

In a time when journalists without newspapers, television hosts with no transmissions are recycled as gastronomic writers without knowing how you grab a frying pan or a knife and that, despite what scale the peaks of the rankings in the sales of books, you can hear a small voice like mine and / or yours!

On the home will get a monthly recipe or tips for a recipe: something that I communicate impressions, criticisms and recommendations above. Of course, every recipe has been tested by me!

Since my English is at school, I invite you to correct linguistic errors you find.


N.B.: recipes with @ are my wife Emi.




When we have more good food in the world, we will not have good literature, nor high intellect, nor friendly meetings, or social harmony.

New Year's candles


Roll out the bread with the rolling pin (see rolled canap├ęs) and spread mayonnaise and salmon or ham and slices of mozzarella. Roll them up and wrap in aluminum foil. Put in the fridge for at least two hours. Cut the thickness of a finger (the first an oblique cut). Stick with a toothpick, making "candles" of different heights.

Prepare the Parmesan fondue: boil the cream with the cornstarch in the bain-marie and after two minutes put the grated Parmesan cheese, a little at a time to avoid lumps, add a teaspoon of dissolved cornstarch in a spoon of water and continuing to mix until it forms a cream; add a little grated nutmeg and a little pepper. Let it cool.

Holding the rolls with the toothpick, pour the fondue on a roll with the spoon, place it in a plate and remove the toothpick from the top. Pour the remaining melt on the candles to simulate the wax. Cut the tip of the toothpick and pierce a piece of sweet and sour red pepper to simulate the flame and place it in the middle of the candle.
