Walnuts cream. Una semplice crema di noci.

Buongiorno a tutti cari amici. Good morning my dear friends, ready for preparing lunch?

Le noci mi mettono allegria, quel cestino in mezzo alla tavola, il suono delle chiacchiere e quelle mani che si allungano a prenderle e a romperle. Il mio amico Guido – in estate e in inverno – chiede sempre a fine pranzo “ma non ci sono le noci?”. Walnuts make me happy. Always in centre of the table, the sounds of voices talking and hands reaching out to get them and break. My friend Guido – in summer or winter – always asks: “But….are not there walnuts?”.

Oggi vi suggerisco una ricetta semplice, una crema di noci, un sugo per accompagnate un piatto di pasta. Vi consiglio i sedani rigati. Today I suggest you an easy recipe, walnuts cream, the right source for sedani rigati.

Ingredienti. Ingredients.

500 gr di noci (che diventeranno 200 grammi circa solo di gheriglio). 500 gr. of walnuts (they will become 200 gr. just the part inside).

60 grammi di parmigiano, 2 cucchiai di olio, 2 pizzichi di sale e 180 ml di latte. 60 gr. of parmesan, 2 spoon of oil, salt and 180 ml of milk.

Non c’è panna, non c’è aglio. Una vera ricetta light. No sour cream no garlick, really a light recipe.

In un mixer mettete le noci con il parmigiano. Poi aggiungete il latte, l’olio e il sale. In a mixer put walnuts and parmisan. Then add milk, oil and salt.

Ho fatto qualche porzione in più e l’ho messa nel freezer. I did some more portions and I put everything in freezer.

Il vino per questo piatto? Vi suggerisco un Vermentino della Riviera Ligure di Ponente. Which wine for this recipe? I suggest Vermentino (Riviera Ligure di Ponente).

Enjoy!!!!!!

Sunday lunch with family. The best time of the week. Il pranzo della domenica penso sia il più bel momento della settimana.

Happy sunday!!! First of all thank you very much. My blog… no, OUR blog was born a week ago and I had a lot of visitors and a lot of followers. I’m really happy.

Do you remember my first recipe? Risotto with pumpkins. I cooked yesterday and it was so tasty.

Today I want to write a recipe for sunday lunch, the best time of the week. Every family can stay all together, have fun, talk and discuss about everything.

This recipe is from Trento, a wonderful city in north Italy. I was there with my lovely friend Giorgia and she introduced me her grandmother who teached me how to cook Orzotto alla Trentina.

Recipe for 4 persons (as always)

Wash under water 200 gr of barley. Cold water. Prepare your broth – as always – vegetal broth without meat. Cut a potato and a carrot (julienne style).

Cut one onion and put it in a pot with oil. Cook the onion for 10 minutes.

Then add …….I normaly use pasta di salame (like a salame shelled), I call it Tastasal. Do you remember the famous soprano Maria Callas? She loved tastasal in every soupe in winter. So, add 100 gr of pasta di salame.

Then add potato and carrot and barley. Mix everything. Occasionally add broth. Mix and add broth for 40 minutes. Your Orzotto is ready. Buon appetito.

I suggest to drink Pinot bianco or Pinot grigio. Enjoy your sunday lunch!!!!
