The View from My Kitchen

Benvenuti! I hope you enjoy il panorama dalla mia cucina Italiana -- "the view from my Italian kitchen,"-- where I indulge my passion for Italian food and cooking. From here, I share some thoughts and ideas on food, as well as recipes and restaurant reviews, notes on travel, and a few garnishes from a lifetime in the entertainment industry.

You can help by leaving comments on posts and by becoming a follower. More than a hundred thousand people all over the world have viewed the blog and that's great. But every great leader needs followers and if I am ever to achieve my goal of becoming the next great leader of the Italian culinary world :-) I need followers! I promise, I'm not going to spam anybody. I'd just like to know who's out there and what your thoughts are on what I'm doing.

Grazie mille!

Recipe: Maple Glazed Carrots

CAROTE CON LA GLASSA DI ACERO
(Maple Glazed Carrots)

3 or 4 carrots, peeled and sliced or about 25 whole baby carrots, peeled and trimmed
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp B-grade maple syrup
Salt

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add carrots and cook until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.

Combine butter, water, syrup and salt in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. When butter is melted, mix in carrots and cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cook until most of the liquid evaporates, stirring frequently, approximately 8 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook about 1 minute more.

Serves 4
