Your experience
  • Baked pumpkin with almonds, pumpkin seeds and salt flakes
  • Ravioli filled with Pumpkin "alla Veronese"
  • Pumpkin and chocolate cake

In the past centuries the pumpkin has represented a food reserve in the poorest areas, an extraordinary food since everything can be used: flowers, seeds, buds, leaves and fruit. Cut into not too thin slices and cooked in the oven, with the addition of almonds, pumpkin seeds and salt flakes, it is an exquisite appetizer; worked with Grana Padano, aged Monte Veronese, pepper and nutmeg it becomes an amazing filling for fresh pasta ravioli; combined with the ingredients for a simple focaccia, it turns into a delicious soft cake, enriched with flakes of dark chocolate and a salted chocolate mousse. Its nature is magical, not only in the kitchen: wasn't it Cinderella's carriage?

Elena mi ha proposto una cena vegetariana con diverse portate a dir poco stupenda: piatti diversi dal solito e curati in ogni dettaglia. La sua compagnia, inoltre, è stata veramente piacevole. Consiglio assolutamente!

Bellissima esperienza - February 2024

Elena ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin und wir hatten das Vergnügen mit ihr (und ihrem Ehemann Antonio) einen liebevollen und unvergesslichen Abend zu verbringen. Gekocht und gebacken wurden leckere und typisch italienische Gerichte, mit denen wir zukünftig bei unseren Freunden angeben können, z.B. mit dem traditionellen Mürbegebäck der Region von Mantova, der Torta Sbrisolona. Laut meinem Freund Markus war es das beste Geburtstagsgeschenk aller Zeiten! Dem kann ich nicht widersprechen. Es war wirklich großartig :-) Elena è una padrona di casa meravigliosa e abbiamo avuto il piacere di trascorrere con lei (e con suo marito Antonio) una serata deliziosa e indimenticabile. Sono stati cucinati e sfornati piatti deliziosi e tipici italiani, che potremo mostrare ai nostri amici in futuro, come ad esempio la tradizionale pasta frolla mantovana, la Torta Sbrisolona. Secondo il mio amico Markus, è stato il miglior regalo di compleanno di sempre! Non posso non essere d'accordo. E' stato davvero fantastico :-)

"Friends call me 'Archichef', I'm an architect stolen from the kitchen. Architecture and Cuisine are both children of creativity, but supported by a rigid discipline, which is camouflaged by color, flavor and apparent lightness and simplicity. I love recipes popular, those of grandmothers and traditions that are no longer used and I love, at times, to transform them into a new dish, but not too much. My philosophy is to use top quality products, as much as possible at zero km; pasta, homemade bread, pizza and desserts. Most of the fresh products are of own production (vegetables, fruits) found in local farms, or from DOCG, DOP, organic or biodynamic denomination companies."
