Savory cakes and dishes

Rice balls/Arancini

Risotto with saffron fried balls filled with either cheese or meat – in this particular occasion I have filled them with mozzarella cheese but anything can be used.

Lovely organic cabbage leaf rolls filled with wonderful Tablehurst organic pork and beef. Carnaroli rice and organic vegetables together with spices and cheese…

Pizza cake:

Pizza dough balls stuffed with mozzarella, tomato sauce, origano and whatever you wish to add. Deliciusly as light as a cloud.



TORTA PASQUALINA – Pasqua in Italian means Easter. This cake originates from the 1400 and it is a typical dish of my birth region Liguria. It is usually filled with chard but also spinach or other green leaved vegetables or even artichokes, ricotta cheese and eggs. Tradition in the making of this cake wants the use or 33 super fine like pasta sheets as a reference to Jesus’ years. I only use 3 or 4 sheets. The bubble at the top comes from my mum. She use to blow air inside the pasta sheet before sealing it in order to create this nice bubble. This Ligurian speciality is consumed cold. It is the perfect picnic or banquet food . There is a lot of work in the making of this cake but the final result is well worth it.
