Travelling through "Langhe"




We've passed the last three days travelling through a Piedmontese region named "Langhe", a marvellous place rich in hills covered by vineyards and hazel groves.







In this spring days it's fantastic to walk around in the fields and through the villages because everything's full in bloom and flowers seems to wait for your shoots.









And don't forget to taste the specialties of the local cooking and the good wines! I'll post in the next weeks some of the traditional recipes of this region.

Now only a simple and quick way we use to taste peppers:
Put the entire peppers in the oven and let them roast for a few time; they're ready when you can peel them easily. Let them cool down then remove the white peel and seeds inside; slice them in four-five pieces and put them in a plate; garnish with olive oil, anchovies and garlic slices on top!








Coming soon some more pictures of this recipe and different versions.
