Today I added the FOOD SECTION and I celebrate this event publishing an international recipe.
But first, let’s give some fame to my dialect 😉
hehe I really like the title I’ve chosen for this section.
This is what in my dialect would have been called: “Lo cuoco re sechenenza“…
This is a very obscure expression from my little town. Maybe people coming from two or three other neighbouring “villages” are able to understand that, while just moving less than 10Km far from my place almost nobody will be able to get the meaning of it 🙂
I don’t really know where is it from… I guess “sechenenza” could be a very low quality material, or an invented material, to mean that “something ‘re sechenenza” is very bad! 😉
Well… that’s what I am 🙂 at least when i cook 😛
When I just cook for myself, I simply try to “survive”: basicly low fat, balanced food, with a lot of different spices 🙂 Let’s say that I consider the food as a kind of “fuel”… I am very sorry for all the real chef passing by here… it is not my intention to offend them 🙂 I like well made food… but when I have to cook, I simply try to get the best taste in the easiest (and possibly healthy) way 🙂
In spite of that, I really like some of my food, and some friends also appreciate it, even though it is very healthy 🙂 So, you’ll get here some samples of my recipes but, don’t worry: I seldom try to pretend being a chef and I work on “real recipes”… So you”ll also find nice food on this page… surf it 😉
Here we go: a nice chinese friend has shown me this original recipe.
