Today I am going the share with you the recipe for one of my dad’s favourite dishes: Pasta with Mackerel Ragout. It is a very simple dish that is perfect for any seafood lover.
These Almond Pralines are addictive. Believe me, you may not be able to stop eating them! In Italy, when I was little, they were sold by street vendors during Christmas time, or at local fêtes and markets.
If you follow my site, you will know I LOVE Japan. I love the country, its people, and obviously its food! I must admit that I have discovered Japanese food only in recent years, but it was love at first bite. I adore sushi and sashimi, and everything that comes with it – wasabi and…
Today’s recipe is very common in Italy, especially in the south. We often cook boiled vegetables with garlic and tomato to turn them into a flavoursome dish. This technique is called “ripassare”, which means to give the vegetables a second cooking.
Today I am going to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Bread. This is a delicious breakfast treat and a great alternative to the more traditional banana bread recipes that you can find on my site.
Today I am sharing with you a very simple recipe for bread: Olive Oil Snail Bread Rolls. I love baking bread. It’s actually one of the things I like to do the most.
After making my Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I had some hazelnut pulp left and you know I love to re-use leftovers, don’t you? I dug and dug and I found a great recipe for it: Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles.
As a child, my favourite breakfast drink would always be cold milk with chocolate/cocoa powder in it. But it had to be cold… or nothing. My favourite treat would be anything with Nutella, and, you guessed it, my favourite nut has always been hazelnut. So, when I saw this Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I could not…
I have a confession to make: my fridge is full of little home-made jam jars like this Papaya Jam. In fact, I like to have different jams available at all times, especially for breakfast. I don’t eat much of it, but I like to have options.
I adore Moroccan food and tagines (also spelled tajines), and this Chicken Tagine with Lemon, Dates, and Apricots has quickly become a family favourite.
With Easter just around the corner, I obviously had to share a traditional Italian Easter recipe! So, today I will show you how to make Easter Taralli.
I love muffins, especially for breakfast. I haven’t grown up eating them, as in Italy they are not something you would find easily when I was little. Italians usually have coffee or cappuccino with a croissant for breakfast, especially when eating out.
Mmmm a One Pot Mushroom Rice?? Yes, you read that right! To make this delicious rice, you only need one pot! And cleaning has never been easier!
Oh cakes! I really love a moist slice of cake to go with my tea in the afternoon. This Italian Almond Carrot Cake is particularly good.
Since moving to Australia I have fallen in love with mangoes. I had eaten them already during holidays outside of Europe (Indian mangoes are amazing!), but mangoes in Italy are… well… pretty tasteless.
I am very happy to share yet another pasta recipe with you. I am Italian after all and we do eat a lot of pasta! This Tuna and Tomato Pasta is a staple in my house.
Today’s recipe is yet another vegan dessert: Vegan Mango Bundt Cake. Since discovering that I am lactose intolerant, I have been experimenting quite a bit with vegan desserts.
Today I’d like to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Cardamom Muffins. They are moist and delicious muffins that make for the perfect breakfast (or tea time treat, why not?).
Happy World Nutella Day everyone! If you follow Manu’s Menu more or less regularly, you will know that I LOVE Nutella. I grew up eating it in Italy (yes, it is an Italian product!) and I still love it. However, you may also know that I have recently discovered that I am severely lactose intolerant.
Don’t you just love one-pot recipes? I know I do! They come together quickly and they require minimum cleaning after dinner, which is fantastic, especially after you have had a long tiring day. This One Pot Chicken and Lemon Rice is one such recipe, and it has yet another merit: it tastes amazing.
As you may know, I have recently discovered that I am lactose intolerant. That means that I have to also find new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I am always on the lookout for recipes that do not include dairy. Good vegan recipes, like this Vegan Apple Spice Cake, are always great, as…
My readers often write to me to ask for some quick side dish ideas to serve with their Italian meals. I know, I don’t publish many side dishes on the site. I am not sure why as growing up, my mother would always serve at least one or two sides with our meal. Anyhow, these…
