Aleandri, when the Olive Grove is a real passion

Aleandri, when the Olive Grove is a real passion | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Tiziano is the best of the best – the Vidal Sassoon of olive hairstylists. He has won numerous national pruning championships (yes, they really do exist) and, should you ever visit his perfectly coiffured trees near Offida in southern Marche, you’ll see why.
He personally prunes each and every olive tree, every year, without fail. What’s more, he then inspects the trees – planted by his dad and uncle in the 1960s – throughout the year, watching carefully for the development of the olive fruit. The trees comprise different varieties (Leccino, Frantoio, Coroncina , Orbetana and Piantone di Mogliano) and each will require slightly different timing to be harvested when the olives are at their optimum. It is usually October when Tiziano starts to harvest the first olives. [...]

Tiramisu Semifreddo Recipe

Tiramisu Semifreddo Recipe | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

A semifreddo is semifrozen dessert, and can typically include ice-cream cakes, and semifrozen custards. When entertaining at home, a semifreddo is a fantastic dessert option because you can make it even a couple of days before, and then just slice, garnish, and serve when needed. This dessert is creamy smooth with the addition of mascarpone cheese and whipped cream, though the coffee dipped sponge cookies add some needed texture. Include the flavor combination of chocolate and coffee, and how could you possibly go wrong?


Tiramisu Semifreddo
Yield: Serves 8 - 10Prep Time: 20 mins
Ingredients:

  • 250 gr. (1 Cup) Mascarpone Cheese At Room Temperature
