I just got back to my house in the countryside of Italy and, as always when I am here, I went to stock up on organic produce at the amazing organic farm right next to my town.
You know how it is, we Italians love our tomato sauce ? Tomatoes, especially when it comes to cooking Italian food, are a true staple. Pizza Margherita and Pasta Bolognese are not the same when made without marinara sauce.
One of my first choices when it comes to eating out is always to enjoy some healthy Indian food – and in my mind this meal cannot start without a healthy dhal, an earthy, gluten free lentil soup that I am in love with.
I was strolling around the streets of Bologna, one of the most historic and beautiful towns of Italy, with my partner in crime / travel buddy / soulmate aka my husband… and I made one of the most exciting discoveries: Italian grain free pasta that only consists of ONE ingredient!
The first time I saw shirataki noodles I was in Antibes, in the South of France, where I ran into them in my favorite organic supermarket called Naturalia (check out this chain if you are ever in France!).
Thai food is one of my favorites. The way they match all those amazing spices and flavors creates true masterpieces in the kitchen. Tom Kah Gai Soup, Papaya Salad, Pineapple Fried Rice..
