Strawberry Tiramisù

Prep: 20min but serve after 2hs Serves: 8 people Difficulty: easy By now you are all familiar with the Mamma Flora's classic tiramisù. This is an amazing summer version I have learnt from an old lady I met during a family gathering. Her tiramisù was soo delicious I ran to her asking for the recipe. Recipes are for sharing and she was so happy I asked for it.  Mamma Flora’s Tip: Leave the Tiramisù at least 2 hours in the fridge before serving, but if you want to serve a spectacular Tiramisù, make sure you prepare it the day before serving it, some dishes are better the day after. Ingredients: 500gr mascarpone 400g fresh strawberries 3 free range organic eggs 3 big juicy oranges 3...

The One and Only Caprese Cake

Preparation: 20min Cooking: 50min Serves: 8-10 people Difficulty: medium When my brother and I were kids my mum's present for our birthdays was the Caprese cake.

One for us and the other to send to friends and family. They love it! This cake should remain moist inside, so check your oven, you might need less cooking time or a lower temperature...

Scrumptious Tiramisù No Cream Needed

Prep: 15min but serve after 2hs Serves: 8 people Difficulty: easy Tiramisù in my family has no season, it’s always a good time to make or eat one.

Mamma Flora’s Tip: Leave the Tiramisù at least 2 hours in the fridge before serving, but if you want to serve a spectacular Tiramisù, make sure you prepare it the day before...

The Italian Ice cream, Vanilla with Chocolate Chunks

Growing up in a sea front village in Southern Italy, summer means warm nights strolling through the village, eating gelato. Gelato for us is more than a simple treat, it is also a social gathering and you would meet up with your friends and go for an ice cream. Now that I live in London, I miss all this. I miss the after dinner walks with my friends or my family, stopping by the usual Gelateria and slowly walking in the street to the belvedere. I miss looking at the sea with an ice cream, and meeting the people I know to talk about life in general. For Italians, gelato is a way of fighting time, you don’t devour the...
