Ugly pictures, good stuff - 4 recipes

I have been cooking a lot of good stuff lately but my camera is travelling to Portugal to be fixed (or re-sold to the back market), so here we go, iPhone camera again 😅

I am attending a cooking school to learn classic Spanish cousine and I am really enthusiastic about it. The teacher is a really cool guy who is not afraid of being direct with us when we are doing bullshits, which happens more frequently than I expected. The rate of burned pans in my team makes us not really popular in the kitchen... but it is a lot of fun. And a lot of eat, which I compensate by promising to myself that I will retake swimming as soon as the course is over (it is called "mental training").

My roommate's family was visiting us and these are all things I made for them. "You always cook thinking about someone; otherwise, it's just making food": I couldn't agree more!


1 big sea bream

1 lemon

~10 cherry tomatoes



2 garlic cloves

This is something I like to cook when I am in a hurry but next to a decent fishmonger (another pro of moving to Spain). Clean the sea bream, open it in half (head off), place it into a pan with a lid and add: two spoons of oil EVO, two spoons of white wine and two spoons of water; tomatoes cut in half, garlic cloves cut in half and cover with few lemon slices. Let it cook for ~12 minutes and serve with parsley. In the picture, I also added black olives, but just because I ran into them ;)




white wine

250 gr champignons



Provola affumicata cheese

Oh, empanadillas! The one and only moment in which the teacher told me I was doing a good job (thousands of ravioli taught me something, after all). Mix the flour with oil, white wine and water and make a ball. Let it rest covered by a tea towel. Meanwhile, pan fry the garlic with one spoon of oil EVO and the chilli, add the champignons sliced and cook for ~10 minutes. Blend. Roll the dough quite thin and make big circles, which will be filled with the champignons and cubes of cheese. Close like ravioli and fry them until golden.


4 green peppers

minced pork meat

1 spring onion

5 champignones


Cut the champignons and the spring onion in brunoise (it's clear that I am taking cooking classes!) and add them to the minced meat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fill the green peppers and bake them in the oven for ~20 minutes or until golden.


Porcini mushrooms

1 garlic clove

chilli peppers

white wine

carnaroli rice


parmigiano cheese


A super classic! Make vegetable stock with celery, carrot and onion. Gently clean the porcini, slice them and pan-fry them with two spoons of oil, one garlic clove and chilli to taste. Add the rice, let it toast a few minutes, add white wine and let the alcohol evaporate, then lower the flame and start adding vegetable stock until the rice is cooked. Off the stove, add grated parmigiano. I served it in cups made of melted parmigiano and a good sprinkle of chopped parsley. Super!
