My coking is simple, made of absolutely fresh ingredients, of the scents of aromatic herbs, of spices from different traditions. For me trying to do as much as I can at home, is not only a pleasure, but also a need. How wonderful is to feel the fragrance of leavening and finally baked bread, of salted or sweet pastries that, while browning in the oven, release their fragrance, of egg pasta dough rolled out to dry, or of fresh in season vegetables with their palette of reds, yellows and violets.
How exciting , never a routine job, is turning simple ingredients into dishes that tell something about me and at the same time are enjoyable for someone else.
Hence, stewpans, cooking-pots, braisers, moulds, saucepans made of different materials such as terracotta, copper, iron, enamelled cast-iron or aluminium, are the main resources in my kitchen, because a good dish depends very much on the cooking pot.
