miniatures lunch4. Best Meal of the year

The miniatures lunch, a lunch made with miniaturized versions of classic recipes, from the appetizers to the dessert.


Scarlet sage5. New things discovered in the year

The most interesting discoveries are related to cultivation: this year I tried several new aromatic herbs, like the beautiful scarlet sage with its amazing flowers, clary sage, another variety of sage with large and silky leaves and earth cress, or american cress, very similar to garden cress but with round leaves.


Ishikura Bunching OnionThis year I learned how to grow and blanch the onions in the container. I chose the Japanese Ishikura variety, which does not form a bulb, and the pot was overflowing with long green onions, white and sweet.


Other discoveries:
How the licorice flower looked like.
My yellow strawberries, sweet and tasty.

8. Cooking resolutions for the year 2013!

The next summer I will have to restructure the rooftop and so I hope to optimize the available space and carefully choose the plants to grow.

This year I published a few posts here on Erbe in Cucina compared to previous years, I plan to post more recipes and information next year.

Create and discover more recipes for the family, which means delicious for us but also for my four year old son.

Worthily celebrate the 1000th post of Erbe in Cucina, coming soon!
