Argh.
For the PASTA, I like to cook some anchovies in hot olive oil until they are melted, then I add tuna and sliced green olives, after a little I add tomato sauce, sugar, salt and hot pepper. At the end, I add some capers then mix the sauce with a short pasta, usually fusilli or farfalle, then I add grated Pecorino (not Parmigiano).
MEAT: I love the "carne cruda" piemontese recipe of my grandfather, basically it's a meat tartare, only ingredients are beef meat, salt, pepper, olive oil, red winegar and garlic (don't put the garlic in the mix: just rub the fork in the garlic, then use the "garlicated" fork to mix the ingredients).
FISH: fritto misto Ligurian style!!!
VEGS: zucchini flowers, filled or fried
DESSERT: I don't like them very much, however I like "zuppa inglese"
LIQUOR: A good old Sambuca!!!

Hi there Luca :)
In South Africa we call Sambuca Italian Personality
We only have one decent kind of Sambuca (Lupini)
Which ones are available in Italy?
My favourite is Lumpini Gold with a coffee bean inside.

Greetings from Western Canada, Luca and welcome to DC! As you can see we are a friendly bunch and very willing to share our culture and cooking knowledge. I can't wait to here more about your region in Italy and its specialties!

We have many Sambuca here, the one I like is a brandless Sambuca I buy in a discount stores chain. And I like it "con la mosca" too! That is, with 3 or 5 (always an odd number, don't know why, some sort of superstition I suppose...) coffee beans, and some ice in the summer.
And "con la mosca" means "with the fly".

By the way, GO BOKKE!

Thanks! I live in Lombardy and we have (like all italian regions) tons of recipes and beautiful places. I will try to be a humble ambassador of our ancient cookery and food.

They say the 3 beans are a religious thing, to resemble the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit :)
I also meant a few coffee beans, I just type faster than I think sometimes
I just like the Sambuca Gold because of the shiny flecks of Gold Leaf (typical girl)
Don't like flavoured Sambuca, only clear (white) or the gold because it's just got added gold leaf. Can't understand why they would make red, blue, green etc. Gross!
I also set mine on fire to intensify the flavour :)
Yeah, Go Bokke!!!!! We take our rugby very seriously in SA. I come from Blue Bull Valley as they've dubbed Pretoria. And if you don't support the Bulls you're in Big trouble!!!!!
I'm a big rugby fan, SA boys are all such mountains of men I guess that's why SA plays good rugby :)

I would love to see Italy one day, my favourite cuisine in the world!!!!
I could live on Italian food :)
Nice to have you with us at DC Luca. Looks like you'll fit right in!

We have just "clear" Sambuca here, as far as I know. I'm a big rugby fan, too, and my number one team, after our Azzurri, are the Springboks.
And thanks, I hope I'll enjoy this tasty forum!

You will love it here :) Great people and many good friends to be made.
I've only been a DC member for about a month now and I feel like it's my family away from home :)

P.S Do you have a good traditional Lasagna recipe that you don't mind sharing?
