    Hallo there,

    what a wonderful forum, full of interesting information! I live in Florence and my passion is cooking and baking ... at home, though. Every day I try to cook&bake something different and I search for inspirations everywhere.

    Hugs from Italy

    Cook At Home
    Ciao, Stasia! Welcome to Chef Talk. I'm a home cook too. I've also visited your beautiful city, Firenze some years ago. 

    We hope you will enjoy taking part in the discussions here. There are also cooking articles to read, reviews of cookbooks and equipment, and photo galleries to view. You can add photos of your own creations as well.

    What are some of your favorite dishes to prepare? I loved shopping in the Mercato Centrale and looking at all the beautiful vegetables and fruits. I wished I had a kitchen to cook in!

    Please visit often. We look forward to your participation here.

    Best regards,

    Mezzaluna

    (and yes, I did buy one in Florence!)

    Ciao Mezzaluna,

    What a beautiful, Italian, nickname! And what a memory! Indeed, the Mercato Centrale is very interesting to visit, to do the shopping, especially when you lack the ingredients which are not popular among the Italians, such as horseradish or dill. 

    I love cooking different kinds of bread, cakes, deserts, also dinner dishes... and I love taking photos of them as well... but it's hard to say which is my favorite dish as there are so many of them, ;-).

    Here's, for example, one of my favorite cakes,  I baked it last Saturday:

     
    Thank you for so nice a welcome from your part. No doubt, I will read a lot from the rich resources Chef Talk provides,

    Have a good day,

    S.
