Una semplice insalata di finocchio e arancia

insalata di finocchio e arancia Una semplice insalata di finocchio e arancia: Quando e’ stagione di finocchi sembra che questi non debbano mai finire. Quando io abitavo in Italia sono rimasta sorpresa nel vedere che I finocchi si potevano mangiare anche crudi. Non li avevo mai mangiati in questo modo, ma mi e’ sembrato un modo estremamente rinfrescante che ho pensato di farne un semplice contorno fatto di una semplice insalata di finocchio e arancia.

Lo facevo tutte le volte che mi era possibile. Il finocchio e’ preferibile mangiarlo fresco appena raccolto in quanto il sapore tende a cambiare se invecchia. Il finocchio era venerato dai Greci e dai Romani per le sue proprietà’. Il finocchio e’ coltivato in tutta europa fin dai tempi antichi. Oggi si coltiva anche negli Stati Uniti in Francia, in India e in Russia e sono tra I principali coltivatori di finocchio.

My name is Susie Evans-Ardovini and I created The Big Dream Factory. I was born in the UK and have been a chef and restauranteur for over 30 years. During this time I have also lived in France and Italy where I visited many beautiful places and met many wonderful people. I am particularly impressed with the Italian way of life and their approach to food. Many families work extremely hard to grow and produce their own salumi, cheese, wine and olive oil which means that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience, most of which has been handed down through countless generations. It is no different in the kitchen. Nearly all foods served at an Italian table have been gathered from someones garden or field, and is then served alongside homemade, pasta, gnocchi, and countless dishes that could not be recounted in this tiny space since each family's knowledge is unique ... well, you can only imagine. I have walked Rome, climbed to the top of the Vatican, seen Milan, Venice, the Cinque Terre, climbed mountains, walked The Path of the Gods, wandered the great city of Napoli, lived on the little Island of Ponza and gathered a pile of friends, family and photographs as well as invalueable experience along the way. I became a new immigrant to the U.S.A on December 15th, 2013. With the support of many great friends and a passion (bordering on obsession), I am here in search of the American Dream and to bring you the natural flavours and vibrant colours of Italy. All my pasta, gnocchi and biscotti are made by hand just as I saw Italians do in homes and good restaurants all over Italy, every day and sometimes, twice a day. I hope you enjoy my creations and invite you to share your comments, photographs and recipes with me on Facebook or Twitter. In return I of course, will share beautiful Italy with you.
