Liptauer canapés

agosto 2017 228

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!

Roasted pepper canapés

In pasta, with sausage and cheese, stuffed with rice or cuscus, or in a savoury cake, peppers bring the taste of sun and summer to your table.
After a short break, Ca’ Cucina opened again. At their shop they keep offering fresh vegetables delivered directly from Italy. This week we tried the fleshy red and yellow peppers to prepare these roasted pepper canapés.
Don’t forget that you can even eat at Ca’ Tavola Calda or buy your dinner at Ca’ Take away.

Terrano (red wine) granita

Terrano wine is cultivated in two European nations, Italy and Slovenia, but the soil is the same: the Carso. The Carso (Karst) is a plain situated above the Central European city of Trieste (in Friuli Venezia Giulia Region of northeastern Italy) and neighboring Slovenia.

Terrano is also known as “Blood of Carso” for its color. This red wine grape is grown on a peculiar bright red soil, beneath which exist thousands of sinkholes.

The combination of a fresh acidity and aromas of forest fruit, make this red wine perfect to prepare a scrumptious and refreshing granita.
