First steps

In this section you will find all the information and instruction about what I consider the “A B C” of cooking and some basics useful for my other recipes.

You will also learn about Italian culture and traditions, especially those customs that come from the North Part of Italy, which is where I come from.

If you have some questions or curiosities to ask, do not hesitate to contact me in the proper section, and I will answer to you publicly!

Just to start, I will give you a quick list of the ingredients that are never missing from my kitchen:

– olive oil

– canola oil

– sea salt

– coarse salt

– wine vinegar and apple vinegar

– baking soda

– all purpose flour

– white sugar

– eggs

– fresh onions

– fresh garlic

– fresh or dry rosemary

– fresh or dry sage

– fresh or dry basil

– fresh or dry oregano

– powdered nutmeg

– powdered cinnamon

– dried or crushed red pepper

– whole cloves

– powdered vegetable bouillon

– unsalted butter

– parmesan cheese

 – crumble bread

Since I love making cake from scratch, I always keep in the kitchen cabinet such flavorings as: lemon, almond, rum, and vanilla.

Don’t be scared!  It looks like a very long list, but you should find that you already have most all of these ingredients!
