I haven’t updated this blog for a looooong time! And these pictures have been staying in my iPhoto for months now. It was indeed a veeerry super late post. 😀 So anyhoooo.
Italian saturday with my lovely partner – cooked everything from scratch. 🙂 I wanted to cook something nice for him so I cooked these yummmy food!
Appetisers – Polenta Chips with Parmesan and Parsley
Very easy and straightforward. Bought ready-to-cook polenta blocks, sliced and cooked in olive oil. Sprinkled with parmesan and a little bit of parsley. I’ve made a sweet chilli and soft cheese dip to accompany this appetiser. Nomnomnom.
Main Course – Mushrooms and White Wine Risotto (Chicken breast optional)
Recipe from The Italian Diet by Gino D’ Acampo 🙂 A gift from a very lovely friend Ate Tuesday! The chicken breast is optional. All of us here are such carnivores so I can’t really let it all vegetarian! 😀 It was my first time to try cooking risotto from scratch. It was a success! Very tasty and such a heavy meal!
Dessert – Polenta and Almond Cake
For something light, I opted for baking this cake. I looooove this! Ever since I’ve tried this last January (my birthday!), I’m addicted! I think I can actually finish the whole baking tin! It was fluffy and light. Not too sweet either! Thanks to Ate Tuesday again for bringing this cake!
If you want any recipes here, just leave a comment. I’ll try to post the recipes soon!
