Another Sunday, another adventure.

The other week I received an email from Promoturismo Friuli Venezia Giulia of which I am Ambassador. They asked me if I was available to take a free course with them from a professional film maker on how to “create emotional videos” with a mobile phone. I love to create videos (although with poor results) I could not believe it.

I took the ball and took advantage of this trekking in Val Alba (look the video above)  also to do a trial and not get to the course empty-handed.

NO BAKE AND GELATIN-FREE LAYERED CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE

NO BAKE AND GELATIN-FREE LAYERED CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE

A SWEET NOT TOO SWEET? IS THE CHEESECAKE!

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE? THANKS TO PHILADELPHIA, A CREAMY CHEESE WITH ACIDULOUS TASTE THAT ALLOWS TO DAMPEN THE SWEET OF CHOCOLATE AND OTHER INGREDIENTS.

 

 

I could tell to convince you: “If my brother-in-law has eaten it, (and he hates sweets) could please everyone!”

I’m not a lover of sweets, let’s say I eat them if I find them ready, or I prepare a cake because I have to finish some ingredients like in this case: chocolate.
Taking advantage of a rainy day I put my boyfriend at work with me and between whips and whisks, meringues extras from some gift packs and chocolate puffs invented at the time, there came out a good double layer Cheesecake. Not bad for two beginners.

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

FOR THE BASE:
250 g Digestive biscuits (the best for me)
100 g of butter

 

FOR THE CREAM:
500 g of Philadelphia
120 g of powdered sugar
200 g of fresh liquid cream
200 g of chocolate

 

METHOD:

Blend cookies and butter in the mixer until you reach a uniform mixture. Cover your cake tin with baking paper and crush the mixture on the bottom so that it is of the same height at each point and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

With the help of an electric whisk in a bowl add icing sugar and philadelphia until the mixture is soft and homogeneous. Now divide the mixture into separate bowls and in one add the chocolate that you have previously melted in the microwave.

Whip the fresh cream and, being careful to combine the compounds by hand and gently, put them in half in the two bowls. So you will get the “white” cream and the chocolate cream.
Now take the base from the fridge, arrange the white cream first and level it well. Then finish with the chocolate cream.
Leave it in the fridge for 2 hours.

 

DECORATION:
To finish the advanced chocolate we melted it in the microwave (do not burn it) and with the help of a spoon, on a sheet of baking paper we created these chocolate wafers to be used as decoration. Have fun and create various shapes and sizes, then fix them on the cake will be a success!

A perfect day | Walk in the scenic Rilke trail, aperitif at the fisherman port and fish dinner in Sistiana

Every person is different and loves different things. For me, on this rainy afternoon, many of the things I love have joined. I, Simon and our dog Giorgino, walking around, on a path that I had never done before, aperitif looking at the sea and to close with a flourish, dinner in a really good restaurant. What do you say you want to try too?

 

 

THE RILKE TRAIL

Well, if you live in Friuli Venezia Giulia it’s hard not to have ever heard of the Rilke trail. A simple walk and suitable for everyone, to be tackled on foot or by bicycle with breathtaking views, cliffs overlooking the sea, panoramic points built over the watchtowers of the Second World War and especially not to much effort but a lot of beauty.
