today a slowfood recipe with zucchini

mobile_picturemy kitchen table photo Roberto
Question: why iscut slowfood?
Answer: cos almost every element comes from the next door food market
Friends gave me a big zucchino from their garden. Yes, just one big enough to prepare à la provençale gratin for a whole family.
Recipe: fried onions and garlic in a pan with olive oil from Provence Alpilles, slice the zucchino in rather thin slices, keep them green so they stay crunchy but cooked, add some fresh herbs, thyme, rosemarin, zechuan pepper and salt plus grated macis, then pour the preparation in a gratin plate, whip 2 eggs with some fresh cream and grated cheese like peccorino or montasio and put in oven for 35mn at 6/7 or 180*C

why are you leaving in summer?

a place to be in Provence

mobile_picturephoto thanks media.
This gorgeous though not so frenchy to me, estate of Bargemon in the Var district in south of France is the property of the über-exposed pair David Beckham the ex-soccer star and his charming wife Vicky Beckham aka Posh the ex-girlsband singer
As the late duchess de Windsor, a dowager of the happy few, said once "any good american dies in Provence" but not a chic brit as the Posh who's "château de ma mère" house just hit the top real estate international market for 2,7 millions € albeit the Becks paid 1,7 + 4 millions € for renovation of the french acienda aka a mas means a total of 5,7 result a flat minus 3 millions € for the english sellers.
Is it the beginning if the fall for the über successful british pair?

RECETTE : la pizza aux pommes de terre | recipe for a pizza with potatoes, yummy!

mobile_picture#pizza cum poatoes ph.roberto
hum that recipe is not a family one, in northern Venezia we don't have pizza, we eat pizza but the region food is about polenta more than pizza...But this one is simple and easy slowfood pizza to prepare, buy bread dough, fresh thyme and basilico, then work the dough as flat as you want, grate parmiggiano reggiano on it with the thyme, slice as thin as possible with mandolin or slicer the potatoes with or without their skin as you like it, is uptodate to keep vitamins and skin now, add some black olives, fresh thyme, roughly cut by hand the basilico leaves it's the way italians do, grate some more cheese, put to oven for 25mn on 6 a regular heat for a pie, pour crude vergin olive oil when the pizza is out ready. Doc my own version

during long hot summer there is no place like home

mobile_picturephoto roberto fabris.
I never leave home in summer time, why should I ?
it's generally the best moments of the year, where you live, sun, heat, can do long nites out with friends, drink good wines or prosecco, eat vegan but fun, sip smoothies with children, you dress sexy, colorful and lite too, listen at dusk good romantic musics, why should we leave for where?

the glass roof syndrom

mobile_picturethks media for pic. I always like glassroofs cos they give more,light to interiors, not only that they ad another dimension to a lobby for instance. This one is a landmark it's Frank Lloyd Wright's capolavore, a state of the art piece his famous nyc guggenheim museum. #glassroof

mobile_picturethe story goes... the recipe is so simple yet the taste depends on where you'll drink it with whom or alone. It comes probably from an old austrian habit to spruzz' or spretzen / to spray sparkling water in high alcoholic wine from Venice region given the name spritz, the bitter taste Aperol is popular as hot summer drink in my family region.

L'apéro à la mode, le SPRITZ de Venise

mobile_picture"L'heure du Spritz" en Bourgogne! ph.roberto
Le cocktail du moment au Prosecco, vin pétillant d'Italie (un blanc de blanc), est hérité de nos amis Vénitiens ou plus exactement des amoureux de la lagune car le Vénitien tradi est un peu plus snobinard sur les bords.
En effet c'est en Italie qu'une ancienne tradition populaire, la passeggiata, consiste en fin d'après-midi à s'offrir un apéritif tout en déambulant dans les rues en tenue soignée.
Les français en sont fous, allez comprendre et comme ma famille est de Venise c'est pour moi un étonnement parfait.
