Pappardelle with Oxtail Ragu

After an impressive run of 290 editions, the time has come to sadly say farewell to Presto Pasta Nights. I took part in the first edition and as I wrote at the time, with an Italian background I just had to join in but I kept coming back because it was so much fun (actually surprised myself to discover that this will be my 76th PPN - I only wish it could have been more).

Many thanks to Ruth who created this event and is also hosting - there's a fantastic repository of pasta dishes from all corners of the world residing in the PPN archives, you should be very proud of this legacy.

For this last PPN, I have a dish that I made, appropriately, in Italy - using one of my favourites, pappardelle.

Black and White Wednesday #58

Rinku from Cooking in Westchester is hosting this edition of Black & White Wednesday and the subject of my photo this week is one of the things I love about being in Italy - having a mid morning break with a coffee and a delightful little sweet treat.

In this case, we've indulged in these fabulous rum-soaked babas - dare I say they are almost more liquid than solid!

Tajarin con Ragu Leggero dell'Orto

There's only two more Presto Pasta Nights to go until time is called and this week Kirsten of From Kirsten's Kitchen to Yours is hosting and as my time in Alba is also drawing to a close, I thought I'd make something with a local pasta  - in this case Tajarin.

Weekend Herb Blogging #358 - Recap


Thank you for joining once again in another week of Weekend Herb Blogging. I know it's been a difficult week for some and I hope that things will get back to normal as quickly as possible.

As I think it's fitting to round out a WHB year with all the submissions - you'll find both english and italian entries in the recap. You'll find informative posts - dishes with spice - clever ideas - and I'm sure, something that you're sure to want to try.

Uova al Tegamino con Tartufo Bianco

We are nearing the end of the 82nd White Truffle Fair in Alba and also my time here and I thought it might be a lovely way to celebrate WHB with a marvellous white truffle.
