Did you remember the contest “Happiness is homemade” to which youritaliancookmates has participated with a spring salad? http://youritaliancookmates.altervista.org/happiness-is-homemade-insalatina-primaverile-from-brussels-with-love/
Unfortunately we did not win the contest but we have been selected by Roberta Paris from The Dreaming Seed for being part of the pdf collection with the most interesting recipes that participated at the contest!
Here is the introduction to the pdf:
With the excuse of lack of time, of a thousand things to do, thoughts, and commitments, often people end up thinking that cooking is a gesture that can been done only by few privileged who have nothing better to do from morning to night. However, we often forgot that a pasta with fresh tomato, a little bit of olive oil and a basil leaf, is one of the best dishes in the world that gives off scents that are a real dose of well-being and for which we need few minutes of preparation!
Take twenty minutes of time to devote to the ancient gesture of preparing food, soaking your hands into the ingredients, smelling the scents that emanate fresh products, it’s a great choice for many reasons: to rediscover simple pleasures of forgotten taste, to take care of ourselves and people we love by choosing healthy and natural foods, to contribute to the development of a food that is more human-scale ……
And then from these considerations started the idea of a contest before, and this collection then.
Seven menu, 28 recipes, quick, tasty, healthy, but with an eye to raw materials, the seasonality of the products, the production chains ….. because eating does not mean only feed, and choose well today is more than ever an obligation to ourselves and to the world in which we live.
