Italy in my Plate

Hey guys! The days are getting longer here with each passing day and the weather is getting warmer. In about a month and a half, it will be summer after all. And in the summer, I don’t like to eat that much. I like to stock up on salad ingredients. But eating salad every day can also get old after a while, so I try to come up with different ideas. Today, I thought I would prepare an Italian-themed plate.

Casa Ricci in Metz, France

As promised in the previous post (click here to read it), today’s post will be about the Italian restaurant, Casa Ricci in Metz, France.

Being Tourists in Metz, France

Yesterday we decided to spend the whole day in the city center of Metz. In a couple of months, Muse (commercial center) will open its doors and I am really excited about that. I know that a lot of people in the city center fear this opening as they feel that perhaps shoppers will prefer to go to Muse. Problem is, car park in the city center is a bit expensive, but on the other hand, I feel that shopping in the city center is more of a leisure. You definitely need to reserve an afternoon or even a day to just walk and shop at your own pace.

Baked Cannelloni

Hey guys! How’s it going?

Today’s recipe is going to be Baked Cannelloni. I’ve always wondered why is it that Cannelloni isn’t as popular as Lasagna. I mean, every Italian restaurant I go to always has Lasagna in their menu, but Cannelloni? It’s very rare. It’s not much different. Although Lasagna has béchamel. But recently, I was talking with a trainee of mine who is Italian and he mentioned that his Italian grandmother does not put béchamel in her lasagna. It’s so confusing. What is real Italian or not? It’s like the big debate with Pasta Carbonara, cream or no cream?
