Barnett Valley Retreat And Farm

Barnett Valley Retreat And Farm:

Today I want to share with you a wonderful place that I have recently discovered through Airbnb Experiences. Moreover, last weekend I had the chance to visit a beautiful farm located near Sonoma County, more or less one hour by car from San Francisco.

The place is called Barnett Valley Retreat And Farm and for the three hours that I have spent there, I felt like at home in Italy. BVR Farm is a sort of Californian “Agriturismo” where you can stop to eat only what’s produced and grown in the farm.

Annacarla’s Fusilli | I fusilli di Annacarla

Annacarla’s Penne:

I have to admit that the inspiration for this recipe came to me, after one of the nutritious and fun dinners I had with my dear friend Annacarla. I met Annacarla at UC Berkeley, she is originally from Puglia and she always have amazing recipes to share with me. While we were cooking a bunch of “crostini” with Ricotta and Brussel sprouts chips, she told me that one of her favorite recipe is Whole wheat penne with zucchini, mint and fresh ricotta. I tried it for lunch the day after, and it is just so good that I had to share it with you guys.

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 !!!

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.

Pistachio Pesto:

Today I want to share with you one of my favourite recipes from the South of Italy. Sicily is the only Italian region where pistachio are produced, and more precisely you can find them in a little province named Bronte. I am a big pistachio lover and I like to include them in many different recipes. Pistachio are a really good source of fiber, protein, copper and manganese. Pistachio’s saturated fat can also really improve your skin condition, especially if you suffer from dry and sensitive skin, like me.
