Torta zucca e arancia - Pumpkin and Orange Cake

Orange and pumpkin combine very well together, not only in terms of colour. Few days ago, in a restaurant, I tasted a delicious soup made with these two bright and sweet ingredients. I enjoyed it so much that I thought: Why not making a cake?

Vellutata zucca e porri - Squash and Leek Velouté

When I moved to London 23 years ago, I discovered the butternut squash, a kind of pumpkin but less sweet and more fleshy. Unknown in Italy at that time, the squash soon became the main ingredient in my autumn and winter dishes, such as soups, risotto, pasta, meat stews and even cakes. Squash was always in my pantry.

Lenticchie, pomodori e melanzane - Lentil, Tomato and Aubergine Stew

I love lentils: no soaking, quick cooking, very versatile, always delicious and truly healthy. 
I cook lentils at least once a week and I try to explore different combinations, whenever I can.
