Prettaly – Pretty Italy



Quiche with Goat Cheese & Figs, Prociutto, Honey & Walnuts

We are enjoying our lovely family vacation in the beautiful house of my in-laws in Tuscany. They not only have a great pool, donkeys, a tractor (yes, all the things my little one adores), but also fig trees in the garden. And lucky enough – we just harvested the last figs of the season! So what else could I have done than directly prepare a meal with them included?

Walnut Pie

Thanksgiving has already passed by, but this walnut pie is something that makes my heart jump as a dessert throughout autumn and winter time. It’s fairly simple to prepare and an absolute delight in combination with vanilla ice cream!!

Fennel & Blue Cheese Quiche

We had a quiche dinner lately and tried out a few different variations! That’s really the great thing about quiches. And new to me was to use puff pastry as dough on the bottom – plus it saves you time if you buy it! Definitely a version for grown-ups with the blue cheese. Give it a try!

Sfoglia alla Valdostana


Sometimes its just super nice to reminisce about the last vacation you had…and for me this involves the thought of a delicious Valdostana. Last time I enjoyed a piece was at the pool side for lunch in Italy. But what is a Valdostana? It’s a puff pastry quiche style dish filled with ham and cheese. Perfect to go with a green or cucumber salad.
