Risotto with mushrooms
ingredients for my creamy risotto with mushrooms

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about Risotto with Mushrooms?

I think about aroma that fills my kitchen, full of salty bacon and the earthy mushrooms. 🙂 Risotto with mushrooms fills every corner of my kitchen….and I love it.

Maybe thats just me, but smells that fill my home when I’m cooking are like perfume for me.

Needless to say that I have my several important “ingredients” when I’m cooking. Food, light music in the background and occasional glass of wine.

Today I’m going to teach you how to make the creamiest risotto with mushrooms you have ever tasted.

Scaloppine Italian Chicken Recipe

How did I discover Scaloppine Italian Chicken Recipe?

Let me tell you about the first time I have tasted Scaloppine Italian chicken recipe. Years passed and I have forgotten the name, but not the taste of the simple but delicious meal.

It was early spring and I was working my last months in a construction company in Rome.

Asparagus cake with Bacon and Parmesan Cheese

Asparagus cake with Bacon and Parmesan cheese

In Italy we eat a lot of salty cakes and combinations are limitless.  Asparagus cake is one of my favorite.                          It’s combination of crunchy bacon and salty Parmesan cheese make it a perfect pair.

As cooking in Italy is very seasonal (we can’t buy strawberries in winter) we have adapted the recipes and we eat whats fresh and in season. I have made this delicious cake in June and ate it with some fresh green salad on a side.

How to make Italian Style Aperitivo (at home)

Since my first visits to Bergamo I recall going to a bar called La Vela per un aperitivo and soon it has become my favorite time of the day. Aperitivo time!

In Italy aperitivo is usually served around lunch and dinner time and it is perceived as a snack before the meal or something you have while hanging out with friends. Abundance and the cost depends a lot on a place that serves it.

I had aperitivo where we ate pasta, mini sandwiches, pastries in a buffet kind of a setting and those where I was served only potatoes chips and some nuts.
