An Italian vegetarian recipe for the gourmet in you: burrata bruschetta.

a burrata bruschetta recipe with oven roasted tomatoes and pansies


foraging intentions

At floracult I met Viviana, from vividisanapianta.

Apart from cooking with fresh plants and teaching how, she also goes foraging! That’s something I’d love to learn.

I’m so wanting to participate to one of this walks.

Maybe in June.

I only need a partner, and it won’t be easy…

Anyone in Rome interested?


pansies love

With the pansies from Piemonte Viviana gave me, I’ve been cooking and garnishing.

Those colors, those patterns. What a wonderful flower.

About the taste: it reminds me a little of roses, that soap-y aftertaste.

That’s probably why they’re usually part of the dessert world.

Still, I haven’t used them in sweet recipes. I’ve gone savory and I’ve done many Italian vegetarian recipes. Let’s say mediterranean recipes, like the easy gazpacho.

And once again I’m making an Italian cheese recipe. With my sister’s favorite cheese: I made a burrata recipe.

It may be classified as an easy italian appetizer, but I would pair it with a salad, and have a fresh, delicious lunch as well.

  4. Slice the baguette 1.5 inches (4 cm) high.
  5. When the oven roasted tomatoes are done, toast the bread slices until crispy and lightly brown (about 4 minutes).
