We all know how hard it is to find gourmet ingredients here in the Philippines. I have my sources and I don't mind spending a little for those herbs and cheeses just to be able to get that Italian taste. I'm built for this!
One person I love is Rachael Ray. She makes easy Italian dishes. I jot down notes everytime I watch her shows. I also have her cookbooks and just recently my sister-in-law got me the latest issue of her magazine. I didn't know she has one.
Another show I love watching is Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis she also makes Italian cooking so yummy.
I made this easy salad dish that goes with everything. Tomato and Mozzarella Salad.
It's Tomatoes, Mozzarella slices and Fresh Basil drizzled with olive oil and a hint of salt and pepper.
What I did? I sandwhiched a Mozzarella slice and a basil leaf between 2 slices of tomatoes. You can also add onions for a little kick.
For dinner, I made another batch to match my Pasta with Pesto... yummy! and healthy too...and while making this blog, Wolfgang Puck is on...after his show, Everyday Italian is next.
