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 they don't necessarily respect traditional canons;

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

On this page, day by day, may appear a new or a reworked recipe; but also a tale about a particular meal prepared or eaten with friends.
Just like some curiosity ...

Enjoy the reading!

Quick bread, without dough

 Quick loaves, without dough

The moussaka - Moussaka
my way 

To speak of Greece and its cuisine without mentioning its moussaka would be almost impossible;

because the moussaka is, and cannot be anything else, the moussaka!

Each tavern has its own recipe; and so every family;
here I tried to make a summary (my way ...)

Riz Casimir!

Riz Casimir
Casimir rice, a Swiss specialty!

Those who have visited Switzerland and its restaurants will have noticed, in many menus, the presence of a dish with a particular name: Casimir Rice.

And whoever ordered it, finding it on the list of Swiss specialties, will probably have been puzzled to see a dish of curried meat and fruit served on a bed of rice!

Yet this dish is a Swiss creation and has been present in the kitchens of restaurants and Swiss houses for almost seventy years.

The special version of the calamarata!  The rich version of the calamarata


Taking advantage of a day across the Alps, in Italy, I had seized the opportunity to redo the supply of calamarata pasta.

Clearly, just at home, I wanted to present it on the table in a more version rich than usual; and then I added some nice prawns to the sauce.

Needless to say, it was much appreciated ...
