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!!!!!!

There is a place in my heart.

There is a place in my heart. Everyone has one, I guess. A place full of peace or full of good memories. Something like a “buen retiro” as they say in spanish.

My favourite place in Italy is NOLI, a wonderful small country in Liguria, north Italy.

I began to visit Noli when I was a child with my parents. And I’m continuing spending my free time there. I love wake up early and go on the beach waiting for the sun. I like have breakfast in a bar in front of the sea. I like to read in the silence or talk with friends.

PHOTO-2018-10-20-12-09-44Noli was a “repubblica marinara” (republic of the sea), full of history. Now just 3000 inhabitants live there. A quite relaxed place for holiday with family or friends.

Good food and good wine;  the castle; San Paragorio (the old romanic church); the beach of saylors (you can buy fresh fish every morning); the old centre and the tower are the attractions. Don’t loose the sunset on the beach.PHOTO-2018-10-20-12-43-27.jpg
