I, Michelangelo Buonarroti, the Florentine, and my Florence.


As all biographies, at first I will mention the village of Caprese, 100km east of my city Florence where I was born on a March day in 1475 according to the calendar you are more used to in your time. My originality is renowned across squares and galleries of your majestic cities, in your citadels of belief and your culture to which you inadvertently cling, so I will also start this narration with this original thought where I call a place other than my birthplace my city, my love.

Quiche with ham, goat cheese and olives.


A delight of the French cuisine is the Quiche, which is an open tart made with eggs and various other fillings to go with it. It is one of the dishes with which rather defines the French gastronomy so it was about time I came up with a Quiche recipe for my blog. I already had a rapid Quiche recipe earlier (click here) but this time its the real version.

Chicken Pastilla : A savory delight.


The very first time that I tried Pastilla in a Parisian restaurant, I fell in love with this dish. So why not try to recreate it myself and I was amazed at its success on the very first trial. It’s a savory delicious dish with copious portions of butter and a true delight both during its cooking and while devouring it.
