Lets start with something as simple as the Italian delicacy Caprese. The great thing about this course is that it can be interpreted in many different ways. You can make it as a light, but delicious lunch, a summer snack or as a classical and beautiful appetizer.
This recipe is for two persons.
You will need:
- 2 tomatoes
- 1-2 balls of fresh mozzarella (preferably buffalo mozzarella, 125 grams)
- Fresh basil leaves
- Olive oil
- Salt and pebber
So there are two ways to prepare this. The easy one and the one just a bit harder.
Easy: Cut tomato and mozzarella slices. Layer them on a plate. Pour just a bit of oil over and sprinkle a pinch of salt. Then you grind pebber over and top it all with basil leaves. Ready to serve.
The bit harder: This is good for a more formal use. Take a tomato and slice it – though not completely through. It has to hold a piece of cheese, so make sure that it is stable. Then slice the mozzarella and fill in the tomato. Pour a bit of oil over it and add just a pinch of salt. Then grind pebber and do your finish touch by placing the basil leaves.
Hope you like our first post.
Until next time – enjoy every meal, because there’s never one alike.
