Recipes from other countries!
You might have noticed that the slide show is from our anniversary trip to Italy. The food was wonderful. The one thing I have added to my kitchen is making fresh vinaigrettes. It is really easy, 1 part olive oil, 1 part water and one part vinegar (wine or balsamic or a combination) plus a few leaves of fresh oregano, fresh thyme and fresh basil. I am playing around with the amounts of each spice. The spice proportion was 1 basil leaf per tablespoon of olive oil with an equal amount of oregano and thyme. I also add garlic cloves sometimes.
Elsa has been fascinated about all things food from a very young age. Her life's work has been to preserve family food customs and to encourage others to interview family before it is too late. Her early training in nutrition has inspired her recipe adaptations. The slides on this blog are from her trip to the Amalfi coast Spring of 2015.
