English peas are one of my favorite spring ingredients, and this recipe is another re-incarnation of the English peas puree with mint. If you simply thin the puree with some liquid – voila! you have got a soup.
Black cod is a very delicate, flaky fish and is one of my favorites. The tomato-fennel-saffron broth is something that I have been making for a long time, and it is one of the best accompaniments for any kind of sea food. This is a luxurious dish – perfect to impress at your dinner party.
For the longest time I had a phobia from anything that involves dough (so no bread or any type of baking) but recently I have been getting into pasta making with increasing success. Agnolotti dal plin (agnolotti with a pinch) is the first pasta I learned in a cooking class, and this is the second…

This is a great spring dish – that I love to serve with lamb.
Making pasta at home is still new to me, and something I am learning. But this one turned out all right :).
Pan fried salmon with sautéed broccoli is also known as the 15 min weeknight dinner at our house. When I don’t have time for something fancier, pan frying a piece of fish and a side of broccoli is my go-to dinner dish.
