A Modo Mio in English is brand new – much more to come !
This blog is dedicated to simple, traditional Italian food.
Most of the recipes you will discover on AModoMio are everyday dishes, that require few ingredients and that you can bring to the table with little effort. Besides simple recipes, you will find others, that require more attention and time, such as handmade pasta and ravioli, long-leavening- pandoro or pizza, lasagne or a braised beef. In our often hectic way of life we rarely get to prepare them ourselves. In this sense, AModoMio is an initiative against culinary forgetting, an ark of taste and of kitchen traditions.
I always combine food to beautiful Italian stories. It’s a reminiscence of all the stories my grandma told me as a child over hours of pasta-making together.
AModoMio was born in summer 2017 as consequence of a weekly collaboration with the Austrian newspaper DER STANDARD.
All recipes are in ITALIAN language. The biggest part have a GERMAN translation. And starting from now I will regularly translate and publish all my recipes in ENGLISH. The Italian archive contains more than 200 recipes! So come back soon for more Italian recipes and stories in ENGLISH, or to subscribe to my newsletter.
