Lasciati stuzzicare: fagottini alle verdure

ENGLISH ESPAÑOL

Finalmente tempo di buffet e pranzi all’aperto per invitare gli amici ed offrire loro piatti allegri e stuzzicanti. Questi fagottini sono velocissimi da preparare, monoporzioni appetitose, nutrienti ed invitanti anche per i palati piu’ difficili. In cucina vince anche la fantasia, gli ingredienti possono essere cambiati a seconda dei gusti e della creativita’ di chi cucina. Il cuoco francese Auguste Escoffier sosteneva che un menù non deve essere soltanto una lista di pietanze, ma un insieme armonioso di cibi, in modo da avere una “leccorniosa orchestrazione”. Allora privilegiamola l’armonia dei sapori 😉

It’s perfect if you are impatient, if you depend on immediate results, if you need to channel your energy, is an act extremely liberating, kneading keeps your mind engaged and, without realizing it, you forget stress, worries, and concerns. I used to  see baking  bread since I was a kid, my mom used to make it, at  my grandparents home it was a tradition , my aunts used to make bread too . Not one or two …. bu a lot , and they kneaded in this way:

(english) Let’s make a delicious mess in the kitchen

Have you noticed how the children show interest in everyday life activities pretending and playing games ? But if they can choose it is more pleasant and interesting to actually do one of these activities. Without effort they develop important skills. They love to do funny things, to experiment and be creative …. cooking is all these things together and they like to do it. I started to observe kids cooking when I was a teacher, then I started to involve my son. In the three years that we have lived in Chile we had  fun cooking afternoons preparing pizzas, cakes and cookies with our friends. And his teacher also used to involve parents in the preparation of cakes and biscuits with her students at school.
