DAIRY FREE CHERRIES & COCONUT CLAFOUTIS

DAIRY FREE HOMEMADE GNOCCHI

Gnocchi remind me of only one person: my caring and loving grandma. When I was a child we always prepared gnocchi together, she was so quick and they were sooooo delicious.

TARTA DE SANTIAGO

I have discovered this cake last June while walking along the Camino de Santiago, in the north of Spain. It’s an ancient galizian recipe, made with a few and simple ingredients, so precious that the EU gave it the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status. A little treasure to be preserved. And it’s naturally dairy and…
