The art of Italian cooking: a summer dinner party menu idea

Hi, this is the twenty second post about Italian cooking.

In the last post we spoke you about an easy winter menu  composed by three courses all made with winter ingredients.

Today we’d like  to tell people who live south the Equator. Summer is going to finish but we think it is still possible to plan a  dinner party based on cold dishes. What about a real Italian menu, easy to do and full-flavoured?

Are you ready to cook according to the Italian-style? We answer: yes.

Have you learnt how to cook the Italian pasta? Yes. Are you able to boil eggs? Surely yes! Are you able to buy green and black olives and to season them? Of course! … and to grill bread slices?  … and to spoon ice-cream on the layers of a ready made sponge cake? yes, surely. Well, you are able to prepare what we are going to present you.

It is composed by: 1) starter    2)  main dish    3) dessert

1) Starter. We’d start with  “Bella Rosina” eggs, that is hard-boiled eggs garnished with their pureed yolks. A typical antipasto from Piedmont.

We’d also add green & black olives, Italy-style.

Mm ….. gnam, gnam … they are making us the mouth water!  Think of them served with raw ham slices and bruschetta.  If you want any idea to make real Italian bruschetta consult this page.

All these dishes are very quick and easy to do. Now the main dish.

2) Main dish. In summer the ideal pasta dish is pasta salad. We have a lot of recipes in our website but for this menu we suggest Caprese pasta salad, a full-flavoured, fresh dish! If you want to see other ideas consult the other pasta salads of ours.

3) The dessert to close this fantastic but simple Italian menu: homemade ice-cream cake.

We’d like your comments about this Italian menu idea.
