We love Hawke's Bay, plus Napier, Hasting and Mission Estate Winery We love Hawke's Bay, plus Napier, Hasting and Mission Estate Winery By Alessandra Zecchini 01/25/14 03:29 We spent three wonderful days in Hawke's Bay The sea is wonderful to look at, but a bit too scary for me to swim. One of the best things for me was to be able to eat all the wonderful stone fruit that they grow here. A must-see is the lovely city of Napier...
Maori bread and crossing Te Urewera to Wairoa and beyond Maori bread and crossing Te Urewera to Wairoa and beyond By Alessandra Zecchini 01/22/14 09:32 Maori (Rewena) Bread I have never been to this part of New Zealand before, as it not exactly on the tourist route (unless you are a hunter or hiker). It is remote, wild and beautiful, with forest, tiny settlements and kids riding horses without saddles....
Rotorua and a new page views record (according to Blogger): 12,587 in a day Rotorua and a new page views record (according to Blogger): 12,587 in a day By Alessandra Zecchini 01/20/14 05:30 Rotorua is one of those cities that I visited several times and yet it never tires me. So here we are again! Where to eat if you are a veggie: The first time I came here it was in 1993, and I ate at the Fat Dog Cafe, one of those places where you can always...
Raw juice magic: celery, lemon and apple juice… and Atlas Power Coffee in Cambridge Raw juice magic: celery, lemon and apple juice… and Atlas Power Coffee in Cambridge By Alessandra Zecchini 01/18/14 09:22 I am so into juicing these days, and the kids drink all sort of vegetable and fruit juices, the greener the better! This one is particularly good: for four glasses I used half a stalk of celery (I use the stalks and only a few leaves - mostly to give it...
Salad with mixed leaves and flowers and silver beet from the garden Salad with mixed leaves and flowers and silver beet from the garden By Alessandra Zecchini 01/14/14 05:30 A crop that never fails me is silver beet (Swiss Chard) and since I find it easier to grow than spinach I mostly use it to make palak paneer (although in this case is silver beet paneer !) and silver beet baked pasta. Click here for even more recipes with...
Sautéed Asian eggplants and asparagus with Italian herbs (and baby potatoes) Sautéed Asian eggplants and asparagus with Italian herbs (and baby potatoes) By Alessandra Zecchini 01/12/14 05:18 One of my favourite kitchen smells is garlic and herbs sizzling in olive oil! Here I used fresh rosemary, sage and oregano, a couple of garlic cloves, and a few long Asian eggplants, cut into halves or quarters (depending on their size). When the eggplants...
Ricotta Cheesecake with Rum and Raisins Ricotta Cheesecake with Rum and Raisins By Alessandra Zecchini 01/10/14 00:33 I love ricotta cheesecake, and it has less calories that regular cheesecake. This recipe is very simple and calls for many variations: here I used rum and raisins, but it is great with lemon zest, or vanilla, or candied citrus peels... Ingredients 1 sheet...
Super green juice, and it tastes lovely Super green juice, and it tastes lovely By Alessandra Zecchini 01/07/14 06:01 Don't mind the basil in the background, it just happened to be there but it is not an ingredient (although, maybe next time I'll put some in, it should taste good!). This green juice is 100% vegetable, and yet it is not bitter, and it looks 'greener' that...

Rose Cordial, step by step Rose Cordial, step by step By Alessandra Zecchini 12/30/13 21:30 If you have roses in your garden, and they have not been sprayed (organic) you can make your own rose cordial, beautiful and pink! The recipe is the same as for the elderberry flower syrup. For this you will need 1 l of water, 1 kg of sugar, organic rose...
Strawberry and Banana ice-cream: sugar free, gluten free, raw and vegan Strawberry and Banana ice-cream: sugar free, gluten free, raw and vegan By Alessandra Zecchini 12/29/13 05:24 You just need two ingredients: 2-3 bananas, sliced and frozen, and 2 punnets of strawberries, cut and frozen. It is actually better if both the banana and strawberries are quite ripe - jam quality! Freeze the fruit for a few hours (one day is better) then...
Breaking the cookie house Breaking the cookie house By Alessandra Zecchini 12/27/13 02:35 This was the Cookie House, broken and eaten on Boxing Day (and the day after…) by three enthusiastic kids. It tasted lovely, of cinnamon and vanilla with a hint of peppermint near the windows. And what did you do on Boxing Day? Photos by Alessandra Zecchini...

Christmas Carrot Sweets Christmas Carrot Sweets By Alessandra Zecchini 12/23/13 03:15 I often make carrot juice and I have lots of carrot pulp left over, so I decided to make some little sweets with a few Christmas flavours. These came out really well, moist and soft. I started with 1 kg of organic carrots, drunk the juice (it makes approx....
Christmas tree, cookie house and sweet Christmas display (mostly homemade) Christmas tree, cookie house and sweet Christmas display (mostly homemade) By Alessandra Zecchini 12/22/13 03:55 For me Christmas is a chance to express creativity and make things by hand, bake, ice, decorate and fill the house with a festive display. This is my little coffee table tree, all the decorations are made with paper and rolling icing (fondant). You can...
Chocolate, strawberries and cream pudding Chocolate, strawberries and cream pudding By Alessandra Zecchini 12/19/13 05:47 This dessert has three layers, and the first is a velvety chocolate pudding made with 3 egg yolks, 3 tbsp of sugar, 500 mil of full cream milk and plenty of Peruvian cooking chocolate (milk or dark, I used milk here). I didn't measure the chocolate, but...
Asparagus with pistachio and Feta Asparagus with pistachio and Feta By Alessandra Zecchini 12/18/13 02:22 Also tried with halloumi and with quinoa, very good combos! Just wash the asparagus and cut off the hardest bit at the end. Heat a couple of tbsp of olive oil in a pan, add a garlic clove, peeled and cut into two, and then the asparagus. Sizzle for a minute...
Finto Pesce (fake fish) Finto Pesce (fake fish) By Alessandra Zecchini 12/16/13 09:33 When I brought this plate to the table everybody laughed, and it is a fun recipe! Finto pesce means fake fish, the original recipe is a kind of pate made with potatoes, mayonnaise, capers and canned tuna (I think very 1960s!). My Mother made it, we lived...
