Gnocchi alla Sorrentina

Gnocchi alla Sorrentina

Every 29th is Gnocchi Day in Argentina. You may wonder why all the way down in South America we would dedicate a special day of every month to an Italian dish. The answer lies in the fact that as in immigrant country, a big part of our heritage is Italian, as the last wave of immigration in the early 20th century was in its majority Italian. This explains why almost every restaurant in Argentina has pasta as part of their menu, and why ice cream is a big deal back home, and also why we eat a lot of pizza.
Bearing this in mind, it is said that the celebration of Gnocchi day originates amongst these immigrants, that got their paycheck at the beginning of the month, and by the 29th, not much was left, only enough to buy potatoes, some flour and an egg. All that you need to put together this delicious dish.

Chocolate & Dulce De Leche Cake

Chocolate & Dulce De Leche Cake

There’s nothing better than a chocolate cake. Be it by itself, with dulce de leche, with a chocolate ganache... It doesn’t really matter. The truth is, chocolate is always good, no matter the form it comes in!! Yes, this is my sweet tooth talking.
I’ve been looking for the perfect chocolate cake recipe for years, and I mean literal years. Back in Buenos Aires, when I was little, I remember devouring chocolate cake on the weekends. But in all honesty, they always came out of a box. Good, but not the real deal.

Brie & Caramelized Onion Quiche

Brie & Caramelized Onion Quiche

I love caramelized onion quiche. I could have it every single day. Back in Argentina, at my mother’s house, we used to have quiche every weekend. Making quiche takes me back to Buenos Aires, even though it is a very French thing to make lol. This caramelized onion tart is so good you will want to have it every day.
