Festa, food, friends and fresh ricotta! Let the cooking begin. My good friend, Felix (see his great food blog over there on the right) and I are hosting our first ‘SlowFood’ event – TomatoFest 08! We spent the afternoon preparing for tomorrow’s event – and even tried our hand at making fresh ricotta (SIMPLE to make! Yes, recipe will be posted in the week ahead!) Menu is below – check back in the weeks ahead for recipes…buon appetito! Michele
Eggplant Involtini with Fresh Ricotta and Roasted Fresh Tomato Sauce
Bruschetta with Two Toppings:
Oven Roasted Tomatoes and Ricotta
Pesto Pantesco (yummy recipe from my recent trip to Pantelleria)
Stuffed Locally-Grown Tomatoes with Mushrooms, Pignoli and Golden Raisins
Pizza with Homemade Marinara in Felix’s wood burning pizza oven
Tres Leches Cake (ok, no tomatoes here – but Felix’s speciality)
White Peach and Tomato Galette
I wish we had been there to share in the festa!! It sounds yummy and so much fun!!! What a GREAT menu!!!!! YUM!!
I would fathom to say “you are marv with your recipes, writing and photos.” Enveloping myself in your Blog whisks me to Italy in my mind. I thank you.
Darling….it was so wonderful cooking with you for Tomato Fest 08! Looking forward to seeing you in mid October! Felix
