Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook: Taralli ‘nzogna e pepe / Il Ricettario del Mulino di Maroggia: Taralli ‘nzogna e pepe

In July I spent a couple of days in Naples. In July I fell in love. In love with a city that sings, that sings with the chattering of its inhabitants and with the rumbling and rattling noises of motorcycles. In love with the flowers, even the plastic ones, that adorn balconies, windows, terraces. In love with its food, which I did not miss to admire, to bite into, to savour. For this recipe for Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook I bake a Neapolitan classic: the ‘nzogna and pepper tarallo. Tarallari stands are located at every corner of the street and the taralli are served warm. It is impossible to resist their call. Crispy, crunchy and tasty. Heavenly. My partner, who is Neapolitan, tried and approved my recipe. Serve them as an aperitif and conquer your hosts, I assure you they won’t be disappointed!

Whole Rye Flour and White Wine Taralli / Taralli alla segale rotta e vino bianco

Taralli 1

It has been quite a while since I last posted a recipe to use up sourdough leftovers, but once more my leftover jar lay in the fridge almost filled to the brim. What to do? Yes, we all do love bread thins, breadsticks and fritters but I wanted to bake something new. In the end inspiration came to me in guise of a tarallo. I still remember discovering taralli during the first year of Art School in Varese. Continue reading / Continua a leggere…

Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook: Merlot flavoured Ticinese Taralli with polenta breading / Il ricettario del Mulino di Maroggia: Taralli Ticinesi al Merlot con panatura di polenta

taralli ticinesi 1 copia

I already mentioned Maroggia’s Mill and the high quality of its Farina Nostrana flour in my post for my Autumn Flower’s recipe, a sweet brioche with pumpkin and chestnuts cream, and I expressed the good intention of making an extra effort in the selection of flours that I use for my experiments in the kitchen. Said and done.

Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook: Rye Flour Tigelle / Il Ricettario del Mulino di Maroggia: Tigelle con farina di segale

Street food is now everywhere on the streets of our cities and at every special event around Ticino. A few years ago when I attended Food Immersion Festival I was impressed by Tigella Bella‘s stand but there was so much to say and eat that I realized I had completely forgot to mention them! The thought of these soft flat breads didn’t leave me but only now I had the idea to reinterpret the original recipe for Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook. The result? Spectacular! Try them as soon as baked. Warm, soft and fragrant they lend themselves beautifully for a brunch in your backyard!

Food Immersion, impressions on the Festival and my first workshop! / Food Immersion, impressioni sul Festival e il mio primo workshop!

social1

Two weeks have passed since my return from Reggio Emilia and the fantastic experience of my first baking workshop. It seems like yesterday and like centuries ago as well. I had waited so long for the festival with mixed feeling, both of anxiety and excitement, typical of new experiences. At first I didn’t even know whether I would be able to take part to it, not sure they would take me onboard despite Antonella‘s enthusiasm and good words about my work. Why would a successful Food Festival, which hosts important and interesting names in its busy busy program, include me too? And suddenly I found myself in, with all the typical mistakes beginners make and the natural contingencies that derive from them. Continue reading / Continua a leggere…
