SQUID INK PASTA WITH FENNEL,GARLIC AND BASIL
I was scared by a person wearing a monkey paper mask when I was 12. That’s the most a scary costume could get in those days. It was called ‘fancy dress competition’ growing up, wasn’t a big deal. I remember one year couple of my friends and I decided to be the cha cha dancers, a day before the competition. All we did was wear long flowery dresses and a plastic flower pinned to the side of our hair. It was darn cute but so silly.
Do you remember your most memorable Halloween costume?
Now, Halloween starts a couple of months before the day. The boys decide what they want to be and put me to work. It’s nice to create fun stuff and to see them play the part.
Every year after their loot we get home to a small party I throw. I usually keep it simple and it’s quite a quick dinner. So this year it’s gonna be Squid Ink Pasta, with some grenadine added to orange juice, and chocolate cake. I printed some stickers for the antique bottles, which is going to hold the drink.
This is my last batch of Squid Ink Pasta which I got from Venice couple of years ago. I ate squid ink pasta for the first time few years ago in Venice. A run down place, but absolutely fresh and beautiful food. I just fell in love with that dish which was made with seafood stock.
This version is a simple pasta made with fennel infused oil, 4 ingredients but really good ones. Tastes amazing.
Hope all of you are doing well and your week is going great my friends.
