How to Prepare the Best Limoncello

As you well know, limoncello is a liqueur of Campania origin, prepared with lemon zest, the alcoholic strength of this liqueur varies between 20% and the 32% vol. Yellow and sweet, obtained by letting the rinds of lemons soak in alcohol. At the end of maceration, the syrup prepared with water and sugar is added.

Once the preparation is finished, it is advisable to let it rest for a month in the bottle. In addition to being drunk as a digestive, it is excellent for the preparation of desserts.

Take care every day to shake the jar to mix the aromas well.

Carbonara Pizza How To Prepare It

Carbonara Pizza How To Prepare It. When we talk about Carbonara in Italy it is obvious that we are talking about spaghetti carbonara. This is not the case in the whole world. I'm going back right now from a holiday in Spain, in addition to being a beautiful historic country, boasts of a wonderful culinary tradition.

Among the many very original things that I found in the various menu proposals, there is one that impressed me in particular: The Carbonara Pizza. I found it in all the menus of the pizzerias I visited.

Carbonara Pizza How To Prepare It

Carbonara Pizza Here's How To Prepare It

I could not resist and I immediately wanted to taste it. Excellent, my judgment absolutely deserves a 5 stars. We shouldn't expect the classic carbonara taste, but even if combined with a pizza base with tomato and mozzarella, it's not bad.

The bacon cut into thin slices and with the addition of a raw egg in the center cooked totally in the oven makes it a not bad combination. Try to prepare it yourself at your home next weekend.

Since I organize pizza courses at our school every week I get students who come from all over the world and therefore also my way of seeing the pizza is slowly changing.

I can not see the pizza as I was used, ie ham and mushrooms, capricious or the simplest of daisies, but I begin to see it as king prawns pizza from Singapore, Mexican chilli pizza, or as in the case of today's Calzone Momo prepared by our friend Surendra coming from Katmandu back in Nepal

The Pizza Centenaria Della Nonna

The Pizza Centenaria Della Nonna

The Pizza Centenaria Della Nonna. Today I propose a super recipe for pizza that should have more than a hundred years. It belonged to my grandmother. I remember that prepared on special occasions, perhaps during the holidays. One hundred years ago there were no classic pizzerias like imagine now, some piece of pizza you could find it only in some bakery, perhaps with the addition of tomato.

The pizza that I propose today, You think that was cooked in the embers. We are talking about a thin sheet of dough rolled, whose ingredients salami seasoned homemade, a bit 'tomato, of the fennel.

The Pizza Centenaria Della Nonna

The Pizza Centenaria Della Nonna

The wild fennel or also called finocchiona or fennel is a popular ingredient with roast pork or any type of fatty meat. The fresh leaves are used to flavor salads and fish dishes to which it gives an unmistakable smell. Its seeds are very well matched to cheese and are used for the production of spirits.

For the preparation of this type of pizza, now no longer used the old technique of cooking in the embers, but we used our classic wood stove.
