Yesterday during our weekly visit at Ca’ – Cucina in Hellerup (Denmark) we saw a lot of fruit and vegetables, including eggplants and celery ….the right ingredients to make caponata, a traditional Sicilian recipe. Every area in Sicily has its own version. We prepared the one we got from a dear friend from Palermo.
From September there is a new and exclusive offer from Ca’ Cucina: a box with seasonal and selected vegetables and fruits. With just one mouse click you can order your box and get it on Wednesdays. If you are in need for a specific product you can go buy it directly at Ca’ Cucina (Rebekkavej 49, 2900 Hellerup) every day, from 11a.m.
Liptauer is a creamy and tangy cheese quite popular across multiple countries. It is no surprise that there are many variations on the spread. We find Liptauer in many groceries in Trieste (the main city in the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia) as this cheese is very appreciated in the north east of Italy. We opted to make Liptauer using ricotta and mascarpone cheese instead of sheep cheese, and sweet paprika instead of hot paprika. Our version is sweeter and delicate, perfect to be garnished with pecan nuts.
If you want to know where you can taste Liptauer canapé’ during your trip in Italy, try this newborn and useful service: www.lastaurant.com. Just send a message via Messenger to Lastaurant and ask for any kind of information and tips on restaurants that are in an area between 0.5 and 20 km from you. It’s worth trying it!
This lemon ricotta cake is so moist and so delicious, we are sure you are going to love it. It’s perfect for a healthy breakfast or as an after school snack for the children (like ours :-)) who already started school!
