Truffle Oil Web Recipes

Truffle Oil Recipes

Truffle Oil Recipes

It was pretty hard for me to find exciting recipes on the web using truffle oil. I am not sure why. Is it the fact that my google search skills are not that great? Or maybe the food websites and bloggers that I usually follow are not very interested in using truffle oil?
I tend to blame it more on my search skills :)
I did find these three recipes though, that sounded interesting. I am not sure I will give any of them a try in the week to come, as it is back to school for my kids, and I don’t know if any of my readers have kids, but this time of the year is pretty busy. Let me put it this way, cooking just doesn’t happen that naturally. But I bookmarked them, and I will try them at the first occasion. I will share my experience with you.



Buffalo Mozzarella | Web Recipes

Mozzarella Recipes

While I was doing my research to spot for you three interesting recipes using Buffalo Mozzarella on websites and blogs I particularly love, I fell on these. The first one is mixing chocolate and buffalo mozzarella! I found it intriguing, and rushed to the grocery store to buy a nice dark chocolate, and tried it at home in order to give you real feedback. It is perfect! The crunch of the chocolate, with the soft texture of the buffalo mozzarella made an amazing marriage. Try it for yourselves!

So here are my three recipes from around the web using buffalo mozzarella:

  1. Dark Chocolate, Nicoise Olive, Prosciutto & Buffalo Mozzarella Paninis
  2. Marinated Buffalo Mozzarella with Preserved Lemon & Crispy Basil Leaves
  3. Buffalo Mozzarella with Broad Bean and Young Leaf Salad Recipe

Saffron Recipes

I am so excited to share these three recipes with you this week! I found them on other blogs and what got me to choose these recipes and amazes me the most is that it just goes to show how food travels around the world and really brings people together.

We have” Labneh” that originates from the arab speaking areas in the middle east that is traditionally prepared without the saffron, instead it is usually served with olive oil and crushed dried mint leaves on top. Here it is prepared by an Italian with the chefs own twist, adding the saffron and some balsamic vinegar, how could you not want to give that a try!

We also have a classical Italian dish like, Risotto Milanese, that is explained in detail of how it’s made traditionally, by an American! It looks so delicious and just by reading the recipe and looking at the picture I am getting overwhelmed by the feeling of “authenticity”. (more…)
