Olive Schiacciate

Olive Schiacciate

Olive Schiacciate (or Cracked Olives) are very popular in Italy, especially in the South.  They are cracked olives in brine.  I remember going to one of the beautiful and colourful markets in Palermo as a child and getting drawn to the stalls that would sell olives.  They had so many different kinds.  Mountains of delicious,…

Mixed Tomato and Halloumi Salad

Mixed Tomato and Halloumi Salad

I am enjoying the Italian springtime at the moment and I can’t help but thinking about the amazing tomato crop that will soon be available at the local markets.  There is absolutely nothing better than ripe Italian tomatoes!  I must say though, that Australia too grows some delicious tomatoes, like the ones in this recipe. …

Cherry Tomato Tarte Tatin

Cherry Tomato Tarte Tatin

Tarte Tatins are among my favourite tarts… and I like them both sweet and savoury.  The reason is simple: they obviously taste amazing with that hint of caramel on the top, but they also look a thousand bucks.  Shiny, luscious and plain scrumptious.  I have already shared the recipe for one of my favourites: Red…

Cherry Tomato and Halloumi Bites

It’s the end of summer here.  The kids are back in school (sigh) and we are enjoying the last days of warm weather.  Wait, what?  I think we will still have quite a few warm days around here, but let’s say that, “officially” summer is almost over.  So, I am sharing one of those recipes…

Artichoke Frittata

Artichoke Frittata

While growing up, Saturday lunch was usually a frittata at my place.  My mum has always loved frittata and it was a good weekly break from our pasta, fish and meat meals.  I used to go to school on Saturdays (yep, we used to go to school 6 days a week…) and I would come…

Chicken Spring Rolls

Chicken Spring Rolls

The other day, I decided to make Chicken Spring Rolls at home.  I love spring rolls, but I often find them quite greasy and oily.  That’s because they are not fried correctly, so they become soggy and absorb too much oil.  This home-made version is so much better.  They come out crunchy and not oily…
