Pasta | From Donut alla Bolognese to spaghetti ice cream

21-2-2018

  • Restaurante Contraste Milaan
  • Restaurant Intermezzo Ulvenhout

A year ago we ate at restaurant Contraste in Milan a truly delicious ‘Donut alla Bolognese’, a dish you won’t forget! The nice thing is that the dish puts you on the wrong track, only the resemblance in the   shape reminded me of a donut. You can do many things with pasta and in this article I have collected a number of examples. Now I have to admit that a number of ‘hip, trendy’ pasta dishes have been known for a long time, for example I used to make a ‘spaghetti alla Carbonara’- pie in my student days. And my student days have been behind me for several decades! On our Pinterest page we made an ‘Italian Inspiration’ wall with photos and videos of various trendy pasta dishes. What do you think of a ’30 feet long pasta strand’ or spaghetti served from a Parmigiano cheese wheel? Or spaghetti tacos, cupcakes or ‘rainbow spaghetti’? ^Marjolein read more

For our English followers, have a great Pancake Day today! Here in the Netherlands we don’t celebrate Pancake day on Shrove Tuesday like in the UK and USA. On Shrove Day we often eat ‘stamppot’, a Dutch meal that consist of mashed potatoes, vegetables and meat. Shrove Tuesday is the day that precedes Ash Wednesday. As it is determined by Easter, for which the actual date changes on an annual basis. In the US it’s called Mardi Gras (French for ‘Fat Tuesday’) mainly because they use up the fatty foods before Lent. Pancake Day itself came much later as a way of using up rich foods, like eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting. In this article some examples of how it’s celebrated around the UK found in an article at The Nudge in which you can find more inspiration.  We hope they will be inspiration for the Dutch Pancake Day that is celebrated March 16. If you’re looking for some inspiration from the Netherlands, type ‘pannenkoeken’ or ‘pancakes’ in our search bar and you’ll find a lot of inspiration. read more
