Mix the fresh yeast with half of the warm milk and 1 spoon with flour and let it rest for 10 minutes in a warm place.

Mix the butter and the sugar with the other half of the milk and let them melt at slow fire. Let them cool a bit.

In a bowl, add the flour, then the cheese, the warm milk/butter composition, the risen fresh yeast, the honey and mix until you obtain a non sticky dough.

Hotel review - Novotel**** Bologna, Italy

The room was OK regarding the space. The sleeping conditions were, however, awful: the mattress was hard as a rock and the pillows were too soft (those cheap polyester pillows with only a handful of stuff in them).

Free Wi-Fi and free parking places.

The breakfast was a real disaster. The croissants were at least 2 days old, the coffee was bad and the hot buffet was inedible: the omelette was not prepared from fresh eggs and the bacon was very fat.

We will skip this hotel from now on.

Modern ratatouille - recipe with step-by-step photos

A nice pot with vegetables is welcome all the time.

Ingredients for 2- 3 people:
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 spoons with bell pepper sauce 
  • 2 branches of thyme
  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 onion 
  • 1 laurel leaf
  • salt
  • pepper
  •  a few spoons with olive oil

The basics:
- clean the vegetables
- slice the eggplant, the zucchini, the tomatoes and the bell pepper.
- chop the onion and crush the garlic.

So, let´s begin: heat 1 spoon with olive oil and fry for a few minutes the chopped onion.

In an oven pan add 2 spoons with olive oil and add the fried onion at the bottom of the pan.

Now, in a separate pan fry for half of a minute, on each side, every slice of zucchini, eggplant, tomatoe and bell pepper.

When done, arrange them in the oven pan as you like. I put 1-2 slices of eggplant, 2 slices of zucchini, 1 slice of bell pepper and 1 slice of tomato. Continue until you finish the fried vegetables.

On top, add some salt, pepper, the crushed garlic, the laurel leaf and the thyme.

Put the pan in the oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 30 minutes covered with a baking paper.

After 30 minutes remove the pan from the oven and add the bell pepper sauce. It will be more tasty like this, because of the sauce.

Put it back in the oven for another 20 minutes.
