mobile_pictureXIXth century hanakago photo roberto the roberto fabris estate.
l'été j'ouvre toutes les grandes fenêtres, je fais rentrer un peu de chaleur filtrée par les volets de chêne sombre, ceci afin d'éviter le choc thermique des saisons froides sur les murs de ma maison.
ainsi j'ai pris cette photo d'une chambre d'amis contigue à ma suite, la chambre est très lumineuse, haute de plafond avec des lignes géométriques définies par les moulures régulières.
ce qui m'a frappé cest l'adéquation entre le panier japonais, appelé "le monde" & sa grande anse en forme de cercle parfait
au Japon, ces paniers sont traditionnellement utilisés pour confectionner les arrangements floraux ou ikebana, ils sont en bamboo précieux de différentes sortes, on les nomment hanakago, ils datent de la période Edô ou Meiji comme celui-ci, parfois ils sont modernes, mais ce qui les caractérise c'est l'incroyable dessin des tressages issus d'une maîtrise ancestrale des artisans qui tressent ces objets, et qu'on appellent ici au pays du soleil levant, des "trésors vivants".rmf.#hanakago, #ikebana, #flowers, #basketry

l'été nous ravit, le soleil donne son énergie en toute luberté, le bleu du ciel est un poème sans fin, il ne sert à rien de partir loin, en fait, tout est là déjà. Ce matin près de chez moi.

today a slowfood recipe with zucchini

mobile_picturemy kitchen table photo Roberto
Question: why is it called slowfood?
Answer: cos almost every element comes from the next door food market nd will be cooked by you
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 | 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

un été en France profonde,

mobile_picturebanal dialogue: -where do you go this summer? -as usual I stay home, people who have homes stay at home during long summers! In France by example, the weather is rough but july and august may as well enjoy sunny days so why going away in countries where it's beautiful the whole year thru? photo roberto "Ma Bourgogne" (#south_burgundy is the top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine region)
