The Journey into Oil Painting continues

I am spending part of my holydays attempting real Oil Painting for the first time.
Slowly I am experimenting colours, techniques, materials… Actually, it requires the same passion as cooking. Therefore I am trying, soft, scratchning, light colour, medium, dry brush… Everything I learn, I apply…thnks to Stephen Rose “How to paint Oils”. Colours and materials have perfumes, smells, consistencies….
Plus in the end, after years spent selling something, it is nice once upon a time to produce something.

Sunny-side up egg on peas cream

Today it was needed something special altough easy… Therefore we prepared:
– peas cooked in olive oil with onions (part of this mixed into a cream)
– toasted whole corn bread
– sunny-side up eggs
– steamed Broussels sprouts

Well.. The result is the one right here.

Yes, after two weeks of continuous running, meetings, travels, seminars…. I go back to kitchen.
After fry onions in extra virgin olive oil I add fresh tomatoes cut in pieces. After few minutes the peas and then the bacon cut in small cubes. Cook everything slowly, then add half glass of Dolcetto red wine at the end.

In the meantime… Cook De Cecco bucatini noodles in boiling water for 8 minutes.

Finally mix noodles and peas&bacon sauce keeping a little of hot water. Cook together for other 4 minutes mixing continuously. At the end… Eat!
