Welcome to the recipe section of our web site. Here you will find some of the recipes that we use at Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana. We have organised the content into the categories you would find on an Italian menu. There is also a special section about preserving fresh fruit and vegetables, having our own farm produce means we do a lot of preserving. In addition we are also talking with some of the local chefs in the hope of convincing them to part with some of their cooking secrets. When we have enough material we will include a ‘Chefs’ section where we can learn from the best.
As we progress with the overhaul of our previous unhealthy life style we are increasingly going more ‘native’ in the way we eat. As part of this digestive evolution, I have been experimenting with Italian style recipes which actually manage to combine simplicity with great taste. I now share with you some of my favourites that have worked for me as I cope with preparing, cooking and storing fresh seasonal food. Ok so sometimes I still miss M&S and Waitrose but the reality is that we are really enjoying the food here. When you have great ingredients it requires only a small amount of effort to cook well.
We are always pleased to get feedback on any of our website content, so let us know how you’re cooking turns out if you try the recipes here. Also if you would like to share your own favourite recipes, we would be happy to post them onto this site providing they meet the following simple criteria:
