Welcome to the Yellow issue of Simposio and to the Italian winter: pasta, mushrooms, chestnuts, cheese, walnuts.
Cook Italian, learn traditions, and explore Rome’s secret jewels!

about the Yellow issue

The yellow kitchen is where we cook nutritious Italian comfort food, based on seasonal ingredients. These are recipes that help us fight the cold and the melancholy of short and dark Winter days.

The yellow home is a place so warm and welcoming that everyone prefers to stay in, rather than hysterically run around in search of distractions.

But the yellow issue is also a source of inspiration to go out, for activities worth the effort of adding layers and layers of wool to your outfit. Less is more when it comes to Winter adventures: a night out at the theater, an art exhibition, a salt caves experience… and then… back to the sofa, with a hot chocolate and a good book.

Why yellow? Because of the yellow ingredients you’ll use to cook comfort and tasty Winter dishes.

You will cook delicious pasta recipes, like pasta and cauliflower from Sicily, lemon tonnarelli, Pasta e Fagioli from Naples, truffle pappardelle, and mushroom sagnarelli. And yes, you’ll learn what these pasta shapes are!

Next, you’ll cook cheese like never before: crostini, cheese boards, fondues, and raclettes: all the goodness a slice of good Italian cheese can give!

Pulses are Winter favorites here in Italy, so next to Pasta e Fagioli, you’ll find delicious ways to cook lentils and chickpeas too!

Between a cooking session and the other, wouldn’t it be nice to visit a secret jewel of Rome? This year you’ll uncover Rome’s Jewish ghetto: the food, the people, and the traditions.

Back to the kitchen, you’ll fall in love with an unusual ingredient: walnuts. You’ll use them to make pasta, soups, and cookies.

You’ll also become your local fishmonger’s best friend: he’ll be your supplier for some of the most fabulous recipes you’ll cook this Winter: Italian fish recipes. Including pasta (of course), oysters and baked casseroles.

There’s still more to be uncovered: life in Italy during Winter, seasonal celebrations, slow baking, and home projects.

Ready? Go grab a soft blanket, put on the boiler and choose your favorite tea blend, it’s time for a good read!
