Blog feature: Al Dente Gourmet

Delicious food makes every day better! 
And since the weekend is coming along with another chance to enjoy leisurely meals and celebrate summer, i want to show you some delicious things by my blogfriend Aldy, from New Zealand. She has such a talent to prepare fresh, homemade meals that let you experience the original flavour of things, yet surprises with little tricks and extras that make her dishes special. She says: „Cooking and eating are not only a matter of survival to me but for my well-being.The labor of love that fills my heart with joy and my chosen main ingredient to connect with family and friends.“

Her cooking combines local flavours with specialities from Argentinia, where she comes from, and i show you Pears with Mint Leaves and Lemon Syrup and  Dulce de Leche – a  yummy Milk Candy Spread that is so typical for South America. Aldy even says : We eat Dulce de Leche like there is no tomorrow!“ So, we should defenitl give it a try lovelies! So, let's hop over to her blog and look at the recipes!

    I so love Aldy's blog and photos. I grew up eating Dulce de Leche. My father would bring it back from Mexico and I could practically eat the whole jar!!!!

    Summer cooking is one of my favorites to prepare. The air is cool here, the sun is shining and the clouds have been chased away for a while. I hope your part of the world is shining on YOU my sweet and beautiful Martina!

    LOVE! Anita
