MOST RECENT

Today and tomorrow are #RolliDays in Genoa. The city’s grand palaces, mostly dating to the 16th and 17th centuries, are open to the public.

The palazzi dei Rolli, as they are known, were (and in some cases still are) owned by the city’s noble/wealthiest families. When important visitors came to the Republic, they were hosted at one of the palaces (chosen through a lottery system). Later, the palaces hosted famous and/or wealthy travelers stopping in Genoa during their Grand Tour.

These are pictures of Palazzo Nicolosio Lomellino, still privately owned. I wonder if they need a cook/scullery maid? 🙋🏻‍♀️😁

It’s #friyay ~ or maybe that should be #fryyay ~ in #Genoa. Our @domenicacooks/@beautifuliguria tour starts Monday and I can’t wait to take our guests to this cute place steps away from the water (swipe to see).

I’ll be back to posting food pics soon ~ the Liguria culinary tour starts Monday. But the truth is, I’ve always loved taking pictures of places, especially Italian places. This is Lucca, which I first visited nearly 30 years ago. It’s a lot more crowded now but still lovely, with its creamy yellow buildings, and arched doorways and alleys. My family and I had lunch a decade ago at Osteria Baralla (swipe to middle pic). They were kind enough to share their recipe for ricotta and chocolate crostata, which made it into my book Williams-Sonoma Rustic Italian.❤️🇮🇹

There are worse places to be than the countryside outside of Lucca. @chef_david_verzello you are missed!

Out and about in Piacenza. The day started out rainy but by late afternoon the sun was peering through, turning the sky a soft blue.

In just over a week I’ll be headed to #Liguria for my culinary tour with @beautifuliguria, and so I’ve been thinking about, and cooking, the food of this coastal region. I’m completely smitten with it; it’s truly unique.
.
I’ve just posted this recipe for pesto bianco ~ white pesto made with ricotta and walnuts ~ plus some words about Liguria’s “cucina bianca,” which is found in the shady alpine foothills.

Pasta, patate e piselli ~ starring🌟last night’s leftover potatoes and the other night’s leftover peas. Especially welcomed on this cool, overcast evening.

I do love an Italian-style potato salad, served slightly warm. This one is made with buttery yellow potatoes, boiled until tender, and paper-thin sliced shallot. Plus salt, pepper, parsley, and several generous glugs of good olive oil. The only thing that would make it better is if the potatoes were from #Avezzano (the best yellow potatoes I’ve ever had).

Sautéed wild shrimp and (swipe) a little shrimp stock. Also, does anyone in the #DC #NOVA area know where I might buy head-on shrimp? I’m sooo tired of headless shrimp.🍤🦐

Dreaming of a chilled glass of limoncello on this summery afternoon.
🍋
Homemade #limoncello is just one of the treats we’ll be making in my #PreservingItaly workshop this September in Tuscany, in collaboration with @stylephotoworkshops.
🍋
Join me Sept. 12-17 at #lafortezza, @annettejosephstyle’s restored farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside. We’ll be preserving summer’s bounty ~ think peppers, tomatoes, figs & more ~ in a newly restored commercial kitchen. We’ll also learn how to make homemade #pasta, and take a day trip to #Parma for #preserving inspiration.
🍋
For more information, click on the link in my profile. And if you know someone who would love a culinary adventure like this one, be sure to tag them!
🍋
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Thanks to @laurenvolo for this most enticing 📷 from Preserving Italy. 🍋🇮🇹

Crispy egg with mozzarella, and a spoonful of zolle (pickled garlic scapes) on the side. Those scapes go good with everything ~ grilled sausages, roast chicken, pizza, frittatas, cheese and salumi. Recipe is on p. 31 of #PreservingItaly.
