These are my last recipes;
Some of the recipes I prepare for my home and also for friends.
Plates I liked and learned to prepare, adapting to my taste and needs.

Ma ... attention:
my recipes are in my own way and it is not said that they respect the traditional canons;

also because, on certain classic preparations, every village and every family have their own original version!

On this page, day after day, a new or revised recipe may appear; But also the story of a meal prepared or eaten in the company.
Just like some curiosity ...

Enjoy the reading!

Rice based on the smell of coconut

An ideal rice preparation to accompany exotic dishes is this variant, with the scent of coconut, of the classic BaiFan (白饭), white rice with Chinese.

It happened to me to find it in oriental restaurants that proposed a kitchen closer to that of Southeast Asia;
even though I prepared this preparation on my own, without looking for it in books and cookbooks.

And I liked the result; as was also pleasing to my guests.

Mornay sauce

Mornay Sauce

How many times it seems to us that the béchamel on baked pasta (or another preparation to be baked in the oven) is not exactly what we would like.

Most of the time, we are satisfied with mixing grated Parmesan cheese and baking it.
