It had been a while since we had a saturday night in…

just you and me

You wanted to go and watch a movie.

I responded

I want to cook for you

So I did!

I wanted to cook something I never have, something with at least one ingredient you love, something to surprise you!

So I did!

The main course had the ingredient you love:


Crusted Hake with Artichoke puree

Beautiful and delicious dish!

I am glad I choose artichoke as your loved ingredient: the artichoke puree was absolutely superb!!!

The Hake was cooked with and accompanied by a fabulous Vernaccia di San Gimignano:

Dry, fresh and spicy!

For dessert I prepared something that would surprise you: Panna Cotta!

Panna Cotta with Prosecco marinated Strawberries

When is just the two of us I don’t usually make a dessert… mainly because we don’t have much of a sweet tooth!

However there’s only two desserts that you really like: Tiramisù and Panna Cotta.

I mastered the Tiramisù a while ago.

It was time to master the Panna Cotta!

So I did!!!

And because I used Prosecco to marinate the strawberries we had the dessert with a glass of it!

Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

And so I did surprise you…

And so I did surprise myself!

è per te il rosso delle fragole… è per te Oreste

Here’s to a Michelin star standard meal 🙂
