What is "Cooking Cream"? Heavy Cream or Cream for Whipping I guess..

Looks wonderful! Is the Earthenware just for serving?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

Giggle Buonasera,

Cooking cream is light cream which is un-sweetened for cooking purposes; not whipped cream.

Earthenware clay cookware is used since time memorial in the Mediterranean, and can be purchased at Wm. Sonoma, Macy´s Cellar and Pottery Barn ...

For example: Tagines used for Moroccan Lemon Chicken is cooked in a pottery vessel of earthenware for centuries and can sustain high oven temperatures.

One can prepare this dish in glass casserole ovenware
too, however, the earthenware ( terracotta = barro in Spanish ) creates an incredible flavor profile for this dish.

Thanks for the compliment.
Ciao, Have lovely July.
Margi.

Hoot, Buonasera,

I would of made two earthenwares, if we were having Mr. & Mrs. Hoot visit !

My older daughter Naia is visiting with two of my five grandchildren; Adyson who shall be five in December and is the only female of the five, and 19 month old Daniel Jonah ... She shall be off to Zürich to see her sister Nathalia and her 3 nephews, the twins: Filippo and Christophe who shall be six in December and baby Anthony Luca who was born in December 2011.

Great to catch up with her ... and see the kiddies.

Thanks for the compliment.

Kindest and have a great summer,
Ciao, Margi.

Coral & White Appetisers ?

This is the appetiser we had prior to the Coral & White Fish Stew ...

This is fresh stuffed Crab meat in its own shell ... served with some Italian antipasti; olives, anchovies and of course some toast for canapés ...

*** What is your coral and white summery fish dish ? Look forward to hearing from all of you.

Ciao and Kind Regards,
Margaux Cintrano

Hoot,

Adyson is the only female Grandchild, and we do not get to see her and spend time with her as often, as we would like to. Naia and Dan live in St. Augustine, Florida.

Nathalia and her husband, the twins and baby Tony, live in Zürich, Switzerland and we meet up either in Zürich, Puglia or Spain several times a year ...

Thanks for your feedback and contribution.

Plans for summer ?

Have a lovely vacation.

Ciao, Margi
