Eating Seasonal

Living in Milan made us realise how widely used is saffron in this region. It is a fundamental part of Lombardy’s staple dish: the saffron risotto.

It is autumn and we love eating seasonal ingredients. Why? To consume local produce, environmentalism, and of course, flavor. So we decided to have this for lunch given the great variety of mushrooms everywhere these days!

I recommend using a variety of mushrooms and cutting them in different shaped, it contributes to the complexity of the flavors and textures.

Garbanzo beans: a Great Post-workout Meal

We were coming back from our morning run and needed some protein-packed meal, so this one was a no brainer dish.

We have been making this dish for a while, with some variations.
