    This is probably the last summer recipe, before autumn sets in. The weather has been so crazy lately, that there is no way of knowing if we’ll have sun and warm temperatures until late October, last year we did, be in the markets seasonal produce will invariably change. So, while you can, get some of the late summer sweet cherry tomatoes and make this incredibly simple, although good looking and delicious, pasta.

    Plum almond clafoutis

    by Paula

    I guess I bought too many plums: red, yellow and, my favourite, the small and greenish greengages. So I took some of the red ones (because they would look prettier) and made this plum and almond clafoutis. If I had to describe a clafoutis, which is a traditional French dessert, I would say that it is something like fruit baked in a pancake batter. So, how can someone not like that, right?

    Blueberry ice cream

    by Paula

    A few days ago, I bought a big basket of blueberries directly to the producer. Fresh, incredibly sweet and large as grapes. Most of them were eaten just like that, but I kept some in the freezer to make this blueberry ice cream.

    Double coffee affogato

    by Paula

    I’m a little ashamed, sharing this recipe with you. In fact, this is not a real recipe but simply a combination of two ingredients that takes less than 5 minutes to put together. No fuss, no cooking required – except if you’re making your own coffee ice cream, which is totally fine – just the pleasure of enjoying your caffeine fix on a hot summer day. So, I took these photographs mostly for practice and experiment with different angles and directions of light, but then occur to me that maybe, just maybe, one of the blog readers could not know…

    Hummus

    by Paula

    Hummus is an ancient and traditional dish from the Arab culture. It is a kind of pâté made with chickpeas and a few simple ingredients. The only exotic ingredient is tahini, a sesame seed paste, but one that you can already find relatively easily in the supermarkets in the eastern food section.
