Tiramisù World Cup, in November it is played for the gold medal – Italian Cuisine


166332We are almost there. Also this year we are almost at the final stages of the Tiramisu World Cup. The sweet most loved by Italians has a museum dedicated to him, millions of fans, and a "national" in full form. On November 3rd the verdict. You haven't signed up yet to participate with your unrepeatable tiramisu? Quiet: there is one more possibility.

178603The events took place on 21 and 22 September races of this competitive event that this year sees the field go down over 600 participants. THE "gourmet judges", chosen among the thousands of applications who arrived from the public to the organizers and selected from those who had obtained the highest score in the "tiramisu test", issued the first verdicts.

Armed with a teaspoon, they led to the last round, which will take place in Treviso on November 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 8 "athletes": 4 for the "original" category (the version more classic) and 4 for the "Creative" (with the possibility of replace the biscuit and add up to three ingredients).

178600In the first he stood out Marco Daniel, a student from Pordenone. Among the creative versions, instead, we have seen proposals for hazelnut cream (Vanessa Bear); scented coffee a Tonka Fava, pistachio and amaretti cream (Roberta Minisini); orange peels (Silvia Zanini); chopped almonds, macaroons and raspberries (Chiara Ongaro). Missing the call among the few semi-finalists more risqué suggestion, like those seen in past editions, such as tobacco, wasabi and Tropea onion.

There's still time. Because after the "Summer Selections" of Bibione and Venice (last June), they are still to be played "European Selections" of Brussels (11-14 October). Furthermore the 1 and 2 November in Treviso there will be a last chance to participate and disembark at Grand Final of November 3rd. Such as? Signing in!

For the Grand Final of 3 November in Treviso, with the semifinals in the morning and the final in the afternoon, there will be one jury of alone "insiders", including chefs, professionals and sector experts, pastry teachers – while in the Selections anyone can become a judge, precisely because tiramisu is the popular dessert for excellence.

178606Evaluation criteria I'm always 5: technical execution (for table organization, cleaning, ingredients management, executive capacity); aesthetic presentation (the appearance, the arrangement of the dish, the decorations and the final aesthetic pleasantness); gustatory intensity (the strength and the permanence in the mouth of the tasting); dish balance (the balance between the ingredients used); flavor and harmony (the pleasantness, intensity and harmony of the flavors, the right dosage of the ingredients).

The tiramisu is a real one global success: of the first edition of the championships, 3 years ago, hundreds of newspapers took up the news all over the world. To win the last edition of the world championships were two women: Diletta Scandiuzzi, a 34-year-old opera singer from Treviso, with the classic "best in the world" tiramisu. Francesca Piovesana, a 44-year-old physiotherapist from Casier, who created one with cinnamon and ginger Who will be the world champion / champion this year? One thing is certain: November 3rd does not end all!

178609Yes, because the 14 and 15 December will be held in Treviso Tiramisu World Cup Junior. The Little Chefs are the protagonists, kids from 8 to 13 years old who can compete for the title of World Champion. Register your Little Chef!

Pizza in the Cup – 's Pizza Recipe in a Cup – Italian Cuisine

»Pizza in the Cup - Misya's Pizza Recipe in a Cup

Pizza in the cup. Well yes! The first time I read about this recipe, as a good Neapolitan, I admit to being horrified. But then … then the curiosity got the better, as always … On the other hand I had already tried to prepare the pizza in a pan with pretty good results, so why not try that in the cup too? And I must say that the result was, once again, exceeding expectations! Obviously you can't expect to create the real Neapolitan pizza in less than 10 minutes, not even talking about it!
But if you fancy a delicious and fast snack, this could be the recipe for you! This one is really one sly recipe, because you will only dirty the cooking cocotte!
Obviously, as with all in-cup recipes, you need a microwave. And of course you can change the filling according to what you can take on the fly in the fridge or according to your tastes!
Having said that, I leave you with the recipe and wait to know what you think;)

Put all the ingredients for the base in a cocottina suitable for baking and stir.
Level the surface and spread the tomato over it.

Add salt, oil and mozzarella in cubes, then cook in the microwave for 2 minutes at maximum power.

Your pizza in the cup is ready: season it with fresh basil and eat it immediately!

Sardinia, an ice cream cup in exchange for a bucket of waste – Italian Cuisine

Sardinia, an ice cream cup in exchange for a bucket of waste

Until August 18, from 18 to 20, there is the Ape-recycling, for those who want to help keep the beach clean and want to taste a 100% made in Sardinia specialty

The hour of the aperitif is approaching: if you are among the lucky ones who spend it on a beach in Sardinia, ask for your bucket and give your contribution for an ever cleaner beach. The Ape-recycling arrives: for the whole week, until 18 August, from 18 to 20, before leaving the beach, with the bucket received you can collect the waste abandoned by distracted tourists: from cigarette butts, to litter, to plastic cups. Once filled, the container must be returned and returned. All the waste will then be appropriately differentiated and prepared for recycling.

In addition to the awareness of having done a good deed, for those who adhere to the initiative there is another gratification: in exchange for the full bucket you get a free "recycling cup", with three flavors of Bolmea ice cream (the company that launched the initiative), prepared with 100% made in Sardinia ingredients.

The coastlines that adhere

The kiosks and bars where it will be possible to collect and deliver the bucket in exchange for Sardinian ice cream are the kiosk The Wave at the San Pietro beach in Valledoria, the kiosk La Rena on the Li Feruli beach in Trinità d’Agulto, the kiosk Mari di Cea on the beach of Baia Cea Tortolì, the kiosk Ale Summer in Porto Rotondo at the Ira beach and the bar Atacama at the Third Beach in Porto Istana.

"With this initiative we want to promote among our partners and our consumers respect for the environment and our territory from which every day we collect the best raw materials for our products ”, explains the founder of Bolmea, Marcello Muntoni. "In fact, our ice creams are made using only local ingredients such as fresh 100% Sardinian milk, as well as cream, yogurt, ricotta and water from the local springs of the Monti del Limbara". The company is committed to reducing the environmental impact also by creating recyclable food cardboard packaging.

One step, ten waste

Based on the last survey Beach litter 2019 of Legambiente, which has monitored 93 Italian coastlines, 10 waste passes every step on Italian beaches. IS 81% is represented by plastic with which the disposable objects such as bottles, dishes, straws and envelopes are produced, as confirmed by the report. "Every hundred meters of beach we come across 45 bottles and 34 plastic dishes: plates, glasses, cutlery and straws. Items we use for just a few minutes but which, if not properly disposed of, can pollute forever. Indeed the risk is that, if dispersed in the environment, they will fragment into billions of microplastics that can easily disperse in the sea and equally easily contaminate the food chain

Every year, according to the latest WWF report, 570 thousand tons of plastic end up in the Mediterranean waters: Italy spills half a million tons of plastic waste into nature. In the summer period, the tourist flow increases the production of plastic waste by an average of 30%.
