Palermo, Politeama, Maimeri

the beautiful Politeama

the "Sala degli Specchi" (Mirrors Hall)


Gianni Maimeri's self-portrait 


Yves Tinayre (1934)

Really huge and old mirrors

Me and "Tabarin", Maimeri's masterpiece.


Sneaking into the theater and listening to Sicilian Simphonic Orchestra's rehearsals... So beautiful!

Someone asked...

Someone asked for some recipes from my veg kitchen, so...there we go!
Here's the recipe for a very simple yet delicious vegan apple pie. Enjoy :)

Vegan Apple Pie

3 cups of flour 00
1 cup of brown raw sugar
1 tablespoon baking vanilla cake
1 teaspoon of cornstarch
1 cup and 1/2 of vegetable milk (I use soya milk)
2 beautiful chubby apples
1 cup and 1/2 of seed oil
1 pinch of salt
ground cinnamon as you like

In a bowl, combine milk with sugar and stir well. Add the salt, cinnamon, starch and mix again. Then add the flour, baking powder and oil, stirring constantly: the mixture should be soft and creamy (if it is too dry, add more milk, if too liquid add some flour). Peel and cut into large checks 1 apple, then pour in the mixture and mix again. Pour the mixture into a baking pan (I use parchment paper previously moistened, so it adheres well) by placing it in a uniform manner and decorate with the second apple, peeled and thinly sliced ​​(I created a sort of little heart in the center).
Little trick: apples decoration tend to dry too, so I cover them with some brown sugar, which melts in the oven creating a very good "caramelized" effect.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 degrees and cook for about 50 minutes. When you think it is cooked (gold and puffy surface) immerse the classic toothpick or the tip of a knife in the middle and once extracted be sure it's not wet.
Enjoy your meal!
