Things have been a little hectic recently and the days seem to fly away so quickly, they are just too short for me!
In less than two weeks I will be in Italy again. I have been invited from the office of turism North Lake Garda/Trentino for a few days to visit the area surrounding lake Garda. I will be visiting lots of interesting places and eating in different restaurants. Also I will be visiting farms and artisans and taking various trips to the local area..just my sort of thing!
This means that pretty soon you will see lots of photos (check out my instagram account as well) of that beautiful part of Italy and I will be writing about the food typical of the area too..I can tell you already that I am so looking forward to it and I am getting ever so excited.
I have already started packing my bags...I'll make sure I won't forget the most important thing, my camera.
But before I get over excited again here it is my recipe for today: a twist to the classic Farinata Genovese with peas added.
If you don't know what Farinata is you can check my Farinata Genovese recipe I made some time ago. This gluten free bake made with chickpea flour can be a great substitute for bread.
I can say this has been ever so popular with my children. Particularly this version with peas seems to add some freshness to the traditional recipe.
A really good one for spring.

Put the chickpea flour in a bowl with the water and a pinch of salt. Mix well and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Stir fry the onions with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the peas, salt and pepper and cook them until soft then whiz them into a puree.
Add the eggs and mix well.
Grease well a non-stick standard baking tray and pour the mixture in. Level it well with a spoon, sprinkle some rosemary needles, a few peas, pinenuts and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook for 45 minutes at 190C or 370F.
Slice and serve. You can eat this warm or cold.
