Choco Crostatina | Crostatina al Cioccolato

Choco Crostatina: 

“ People who love to eat, are always the best people” Julia Child.

I’m starting this blog post with one of my favourite quote, and I just want to add that people who love to cook are even better !!! Today’s recipe is my own version of a classic Crostatina, which is a typical Italian pie. I have many sweet memories with Crostata, since my mom used to make it for me and my brothers when we were young. My version is just a little bit healthier but still delicious and indulgent.

The Perfect Breakfast Pie | La Mia Torta al Caffè Preferita

The Perfect Breakfast Pie:

I have never talked to you about my first true love: coffee. I simply adore the perfume of coffee early in the morning, just as much as I love its strong and intense taste. I know it’s not the healthiest drink ever, but I am Italian and espresso is part of our culture, it simply reminds me of home and the tradition of having a quick espresso in my favourite bar before going to school or work.  So, two days ago I decided to combine my love for pies with my love for coffee et voilà here’s the recipe for my perfect breakfast pie. Caffeine it’s a very strong stimulant of the Central Nervous System and it can help to fight tiredness and promote focus, which is the reason why I really suggest you to have this cake for breakfast or after lunch but don’t serve it after dinner.

Persimmon Tart | Torta di Cachi

Persimmons Tarte:

Last week, my lovely friend and photographer Christina, gave to me a big basket of organic persimmons from her boyfriend’s garden. Persimmon are my favourite Winter fruits as they are very sweet and juicy, therefore they are the perfect ingredient for cakes, compotes and smoothies. Persimmons are relatively high in calories, but very low in fat. These orange round fruits are also a really good source of Vitamins C, antioxidants and dietary fiber. I like to serve my Persimmons Cake for breakfast with a warm matcha tea or as a dessert combined with diary-free vanilla ice cream.
