Yesterday I went to Alassio, a little town on the coast, to enjoy the sunny weather with Jobby and his brother, Marco.
Walking through the "carugi", i.e. small streets typical of Liguria, we ate an icecream and took a look around.
I was planning to write a post about the summer, but today it's cold and rainy. I just drinked a cup of warm green tea. But, in order to think a bit positively, I'll just post some pictures of the garden I made about a week ago.
Summer is here, and even if it's playing hide and seek today, it will give up and show again, hopefully.
Taking advantage of the weather, I thought "Let's bake something tipical". So I found the recipe of Ciappe.
Ciappe are so easy!! Just four ingredients which everyone has in the pantry.
You can eat them with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, or with pesto or every sort of cheese.
Ciappe di Taggia.
(source)500 g "00" flour
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
Preheat the oven at 180°C / 356 F.
Mix the flour and the salt, add the oil and then water until you have a firm dough.
Make little balls of the dough.
Spread them with a rolling pin, it has to be very very thin in order to become very crispy.
Place baking parchment on a baking pan and place the Ciappe on it.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until they become a bit hard and brown on the edges.
Let cool on a rack.
