Our Olives Won’t Be Wasted...

...we’re so pleased that a local farmer will enjoy them this year.
Not so easy to pick though, as due to Covid the trees haven’t been pruned...what a job we have in store for next year!!!

A throw back to November 2019...

Little did we know then that our planting plan would be delayed, and for so long!

But now, with the hope of a vaccine we’ll soon be bringing Casa Sant Elia back to life again, and then our planting project can continue ... that’s between pruning the olives, vines, fruit trees and everything else that’s been growing like crazy during lockdown, even so we can’t wait.

Balsamic Isn’t Just For Dipping!

Here in the UK the ‘dip’ of olive oil and balsamic is still offered in some restaurants prior to a meal, but not so in Italy these days.

Yes, a drizzle of really good Extra Virgin Olive Oil on bread perhaps..but no balsamico!

It really is worth buying a good balsamic, although it’s expensive.
A ‘real’ balsamic vinegar, believe it or not has NO vinegar in it, or any other additives.

When you’re next in the supermarket, take a look at the back labels on the balsamic bottles, there will be very few, if any, with no added vinegar.

So, instead of using Casa Sant Elia’s Traditional Balsamic as a dip, here are a few other suggestions.

Drizzle it on grilled or roasted beef and chicken.
Tagliato di Manzo is a popular dish in Italy, strips of beef, on a bed of rocket with some shavings of Parmesan, all brought to life with a drizzle of balsamic...such a simple dish, and easily made at home.

A drizzle over a tomato, mozzarella and rocket salad is delicious.

A little over a ragu, casserole, or vegetable pasta dish before serving, just heightens the flavour.

And don’t forget strawberries and balsamic, they complement each other so well.

A really good balsamic, is on another level, a regular comment on ours is that “it tastes like sherry, I could drink it”, there could be no greater compliment.
Makes a great Christmas present too!

Thought I’d end the week with this little fella!

We occasionally see the whole family, and that’s quite a sight when they flex their spines, I definitely wouldn’t mess with a porcupine! but this little guy is a regular visitor, and can be seen aimlessly walking down the drive at Casa Sant Elia.
Perhaps not as cute as some of the other wildlife we have around, but definitely a character.

October 2019!

Now this was a bit of a scary sight!
Enormous flocks of birds preparing to migrate.
The noise was almost deafening as they swooped from tree to tree surrounding Casa Sant Elia, gathering up even more friends to join them on their journey.
Scary yes, but how amazing is the natural world.

Only Three Weeks To Go...

And we’ll be laying out the nets again for the olive harvest. It’s going to be hard work and much slower this year as the trees haven’t been pruned due to Covid...but we know it’s going to be fun, with lots of chat, yummy food and perhaps just the occasional glass of wine in the evening 🍷🍷

We can’t wait...

It won’t be too long now...

Before we’re back and looking after our lovely vines. Look how overgrown everything is, Jerry’s longing to get Ruby onto that long grass, Ruby, for those who don’t know, is his very best friend..his tractor!
Thankfully not all the grapes were lost, many went to increase a neighbours yield, which made us very happy.

As it's been olive oil day this week, we've been thinking about the olive harvest and reminiscing about Autumns gone by.

Wonderful family times and treasured memories

On Your Bike! | Jun 25, 2020

In Italy, cycling is a huge participation sport. Every weekend during the Spring and Summer there are vast numbers of keen cyclists out on the road. Car drivers appear more tolerant than here in the UK, and give cyclists an extra wide berth!

Stay safe during Bike To School Week kids!

Cycling is such a huge part of life in Filottrano, from professionals to local enthusiasts

We know it's British Food Fortnight...these may be Italian but, we're British so they still count don't they?

These were the last pickings from our veg garden last year, fortunately we did manage to turn the garden over in preparation for the winter and planting during Spring 2020...little did we know then our lovely veg plot would lie dormant for almost a year

Pecorino or Parmesan?

We always have both at Casa Sant Elia and tend to eat the Pecorino with fruit.

A plate of cold meats, cheese and fruit is sometimes all we want in the evening if it's been a hot and busy day.

We all love Pecorino (made from sheep's milk) because of the variable textures available. Depending on the length of time aged, it can be softer and milder, or harder and very tangy.

Parmesan, I think is in every Italian's kitchen. We use ours mainly in cooking, although a little 'chunk' is delicious just eaten on it's own!

How I miss my lunch on a Friday when in Italy.

However busy we are, we made a pact to stop at around midday, and head off to one of the many beach restaurants within thirty five minutes of Casa Sant Elia.

This we do throughout the year, whatever the weather, and it’s an absolute ‘tonic‘ during the winter months

As we seem to be heading backwards in this crisis, makes me think of our journal from back in March.

Just as relevant now

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has that feeling? Alcohol can be a very ‘quick fix’ relaxant for many of us, but perhaps now that we are heading into a lifestyle none of us have experienced before, we should be thinking twice before reaching for that second glass of ‘relaxant’
