.: I love you more than rock’n’roll

English language have much more words than italian, but… when it comes to food you can find weird things: I’m not sure there are two different words for totani and calamari… or they’re both called squid? I don’t know. Anyway… questa ricetta potete farla coi calamari o con i totani, sarà sempre mooooolto buona. You get the kind of squid you like best, results will be nice either way. And we need something good for our body and soul… so let’s go. This recipe takes some (cooking) time, but it’s very simple and anyone can do it.

evo oil – olio evo
onion – cipolla
garlic – aglio
parsley – prezzemolo
sweet paprika – paprica dolce
turmeric – curcuma
ginger – zenzero
pepper – pepe
chili pepper – peperoncino
tomato sauce – salsa di pomodoro
potatoes – patate
Deve cuocere almeno 1 ora, quindi non è una ricetta velocissima. Must cook for at least 1 hour, so it’s not a quick one.

Of course, first you need to mince onion, garlic and parsley

I especially love garlic with fish, so I put a lot of it in the pan

Also you need to have the potatoes ready and of course the rings of squid. Ora siete pronti per fare un quadro astratto in padella: the pan will be your modern art work: put the oil, the onion, the spices and the garlic (last, after the onion is a bit colored)

then put the fish in. Fate rosolare 5 minuti gli anelli nell’olio-aglio-cipolla-spezie

just 5 minutes. Then you will add the tomato sauce and the potatoes

Mix, cover the pan, let it cook for 1 hour. Mescolate, coprite e lasciate cuocere per 1 ora.

You can also make it without potatoes… Sì, potreste anche farli senza patate…

but you’ll regret it ! Ma ve ne pentireste !

Potatoes make it gorgeous…better than rock’n’roll… well, I’m not sure

.: Fishrise

Probably the simplest recipe in the world. Già, probabilmente una delle ricette più semplici al mondo: le sarde fritte.

You just need to buy fresh and beautiful sardine. Let them in some water and lemon for one hour or more. Then just roll them in flour and fry them in hot sunflower oil. They’re like a beautiful sunrise.

.: Oh mama, ooh la, ooh la, ooh la

Sometimes mum is perfectly tuned on your thoughts, feelings and desires…

with a very similar process to the one I described in the previous post, you can make a great sauce for spaghetti

and help you in showinng love to someone you care

Everything I thought I knew about me’s upside down
Everything is changing, but I think I love it now

.: I guess I just feel like

… eating fish and crustaceans. I gamberi sono i miei preferiti, ma questa volta ho comprato un po’ di mix…. to make a fish&peas soup

First you put some oil and some onion in a pan

keep the shrimps separated from the rest: you will add them in the end

then add the rest of the fish with some parsley in the pan and start to cook them

then add the tomato sauce and go on cooking

add the peas and the shrimps in the end

some crispy bread will make it perfect

.: Deviation by design

Can you cook perfect Cantonese rice ? I can’t. So I did my own rendition… deviating from design.

onion – cipolla
evo oil – olio evo
basmati rice – riso basmati
baked ham – prosciutto cotto
peas – piselli
shrimps – gamberetti
1 egg – 1 uovo
salt – sale

Everything starts with onion and oil. It always does.

then you add ham – poi aggiungete i dadini di prosciutto

then peas – poi i piselli

i gamberetti – the shrimps

and the (scrambled) egg – e l’uovo strapazzato

you must have cooked the rice in salted water before… and you add it in the end. All fine mettete il riso che avrete cotto in acqua salata

All I want is Deviation By Design
Out of all the past confusion, out of all the common spite
Just tell me I am yours cuz you are mine
