German study or Italian eating? @”Il pomodorino” #Radolfzell am Bodensee

Well, I am in Radolfzell on the Bodensee Lake to improve my German.
We are in Germany, not far from Switzerland border… Thus the restaurants are nearly all Italians… Then I found one restaurant run by people of Calabria region… which is the one where my family come from… In the end, instead of studying, I am eating… Nochmal (again).

#Starters for an Italian #Dinner with Friends

Italian cooking is easy: you just need fresh ingredients and that’s all! Then how can you combine “frise” special bread, oregano, tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and “capicollo” ham for a quick but tasty starter?
Here it is:
– expose the dry “frisa” bread to water for few seconds, then put olive oil, chopped tomatoes, oregano and capes on top. If available, also olive paste is good.
– chop the “capicollo” in a nice shape to serve
– (eventually slice some Parmesan cheese and serve it with fruits marmelade).
It is done!

Ok it will help if you family delivers you the ingredients directly from south Italy (Calabria and Puglia).

Welcome dinner @home in #Calabria

Well… few days back at my parents village in South Italy. The place name is Roggiano Gravina, in the Calabria Region.
I promised myself to don’t exaggerate with food… well as Wilde quoted “the best way to resist temptations is surrender to them”. I don’t last three hours after my arrival…
Wild asparagus cake, mozzarella, homegrown chicken, rape vegetables… fresh meat sausage “sazizza” in local dialect…

this is a dangerous place… especially when it’s your mother, your aunt and your cousin (a professional chef) cooking to welcome you!
