Here are just some of our favourite dishes and ingredients caught on camera

Cooking has always been a pastime I and my family enjoy.
Traditional Italian and especially Tuscan ‘slow’ cooking is at the heart of many of our favourite dishes, but having lived in the US for many years and with international friends here in Cortona who occasionally miss ‘home-cooking’, I have learned how to create dishes from various parts of the world. Here are just some of our favourite dishes and ingredients caught on camera.

Chinese ravioli by Michela, my daughter.
Homemade flat bread with salmon, avocado, caramelized onion, lime, black sesame seeds
