Pork “Al Latte” – Now 100% Milk Free!

This comforting pork stew recipe is exactly the kind of
homey dish you want waiting for you after a long, hard week…and maybe a 13-hour
drive. Unfortunately, I made this last week, so I couldn’t actually enjoy it
today, after a long, hard week and 13-hour drive, but just editing it made me
feel better. It was that good.

This stew version is inspired by the classic Italian recipe,
“maiale al latte,” or “pork in milk,” but instead of the usual moo juice, I
decided to make my own with chicken broth and crème fraiche. I figured I’d get
the same basic viscosity and fat content (okay, maybe a tad more), but also a
little more flavor, and a better texture once reduced.

I topped it with some fried sage, which is an optional, messy,
but delicious extra step, and makes this much more restauranty. Simply heat a
1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a small pan, and toss in some (not wet!) whole
sage leaves. Fry until crisp, about 10-15 seconds

The classic preparation involves braising and slicing a
whole roast, but one taste and I think
you’ll agree it translates beautifully to the stew delivery system. I really
hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 portions:
1 1/2 pound pork shoulder, cut in 2-inch cubes (note: I only
had 1 pound, but the recipe will work with another half, which will make four
nice portions)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 strips bacon
1 small yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup crème fraiche
2 tbsp fresh chopped sage leaves, plus more for frying
salt and pepper to taste
red chili flakes to taste
*Simmer covered for 1 hour, and then uncovered until the
meat is very tender, and the sauce is thickened. Adjust with more broth if

"Fuori Porta", the journey to discover the history of Italian taste and style – Italian Cuisine

"Fuori Porta", the journey to discover the history of Italian taste and style

An exhibition-journey to rediscover Italian gastronomy and style, in the name of Vespa, that stroke of genius that has revolutionized our way of moving for more than seventy years, and The Italian kitchen in an original combination of the iconic scooter and the historic food and wine culture magazine, directed today by Maddalena Fossati Dondero, which has ferried Italy from the thirties to the present day through war, reconstruction, boom, Sixty-eight and all the great stages of our history, up to a day of conscious homage to a happy tradition that serves good humor in the table.

"Fuori Porta", inside the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, from May 15th to September 8th, retraces moments of our country's history when "our parents and our grandparents jumped on a Vespa to go on a trip with a copy of La Cucina Italiana fluttering in the luggage rack, the right sandwiches in the basket, a smile on the lips and a great desire to 'make' the Italy of yesterday, today and tomorrow ".

A light and agile exhibition, like the Vespa, but also fragrant, interactive, unpredictable and always shared, like the recipes that for almost a century La Cucina Italiana experimented with care on its stoves. The thematic areas set up along the exhibition route are like windows opening onto a character, an era, a fashion, a curiosity: "Ladies and young ladies", "Outdoor", "Italia Fuori Porta", "A window on the world "," A question of style "and" Today ".

Each has a supporting element Wasp and, as a testimonial, a cooking recipe identified by La Cucina Italiana which characterizes that period or that topic: from the “stuffed with optimism” rolls, to the light lasagne with ragù, from the “czarist” version of the stuffed eggs, to the Ungaretti spaghetti, from the truffles to the champagne to the “quick toast” and refined ”.

An exhibition that retraces and revives a story that belongs to everyone, offering an opportunity for current events, a reflection of the image of Vespa and La Cucina Italiana, always modern, contemporary and cool performers, despite their long tradition.
