It’s a tarte or a pie? I don’t know. Its not a long time that I discovered this cake, someone told me that is very popular in U.S. during thanksgiving period, and even if I don’t celebrate it because I’m Italian I love to bake some special U.S. food:)
Its tasty, delicately spiced with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, but sweet like a pumpkin, I added a personal touch.. a spoon of mascarpone, is it allowed?

My turkish sister sent me this sweet box full of rose loukoum, the turkish jelly candy made with fresh rose water. Turkish roses are so famous, they use it to prepare jam, syrup, loukoum.. if you travel to magic town of Istanbul don’t miss this ancient loukoum shop.. its just great!

Ah.. chestnut reminds me life in Genova Nervi… I use to pick up chestnuts in this period during weekends.. it was so nice to spend all day in forest and come back home with kilos and kilos of fresh chestnuts.. we use to roast them, make chestnut puree, cakes.. we were so happy:-)
This is first time that I use chestnut flour to make crepes and I love them. Follow same procedure of regular crepes but substitute half flour with chestnut flour (organic is better)

This ice-cream has two versions: with or without eclats de caramel on it. Base is similar to vanilla ice-cream (crème anglaise base) but sugar is not mixed with egg yolks, is melted on fire with some water, you just have to be careful to not overcook your sugar or final taste will be burned and not caramelled!
