Mediterranean-inspired "caprese" salad

This summer we enjoyed & # 8230 summer. It only happened for a week, in Crete, and although it didn't rain all our time this summer, there, on the island caught in the middle of the seas, I felt the warm season. With sun, breeze, sea, with beautiful, cheerful and friendly people, who, I already knew, cook incredibly well.

I never said it here, but I love experiments of all kinds and especially culinary, so whenever I get through who knows what foreign country is musai, musai to taste local specialties.

Crete in general and Chania in particular are places to visit. First of all by a gourmet who, I promise you, will find there some of the tastiest dishes on earth. And if anyone is wondering, yes, I would have liked to stay there. Caught between plates, turquoise waters, dry plants and red earth, between mysteries, legends and people's love of life.

Oh and I couldn't leave without some spices that I was missing & # 8211 pink pepper, saffron, sumac and black salt & # 8211 and without a few azure plates like Crete's sky. I love them with all my heart and every time I see them I remember one of the stories in Jim Crace's book, "Devil's Chamber". The one that launches the theory that exotic fruits carry with them the warmth of the place they come from. And if the fruit can do it, what are the plates with? So I close my eyes, look to the future and notice myself in the winter, tasting a hot soup from a plate with the taste of summer and Crete.

But let's go back, better, to our sheep, stop beating the plains and present you my lunch. Caprese salad with pecorino cheese.

Everyone has probably heard of caprese salad. It is that beauty that the taste buds swear to fall in love with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Yes. Nothing complicated, but, strangely, very sophisticated.

I don't like mozzarella so much, but I know all too well that tomatoes and cheese once had a wedding in heaven. So, I replaced the mozzarella cheese with pecorino. It's not the first time I've made this salad, but it's the first time I've tasted it from a blue plate


Capers - the indispensable spice in Mediterranean cuisine

Scented capers, unique, spicy, are the flowering buds of a dwarf shrub. The shrub from which the capers are harvested is 50 centimeters high. The buds are harvested by hand, in May-October. Every morning the buds that have reached the right size are broken (between 10 and 16 mm).

In general, only small, cream-colored buds are picked by hand in the early hours of the day and shortly after harvest, the buds are washed and left to dry in the sun for a few hours before being placed in jars and covered with salt. vinegar, brine or olive oil.

The buds of the shrub are preserved immediately after being harvested, otherwise they lose their aroma. They are kept in brine or marinated. Also, marinate the young leaves, which can be used in salads. Capers preserved in this way are washed before being used in food, because they are salted.

Capers are the spice often found in many Italian, French and Greek recipes, but are often confused with anchovies (dried and pickled fish), because both are harvested from the same regions and are processed similarly.

capers they are not missing from the Mediterranean cuisine being used, especially, in the Italian and the Cypriot cuisine. Last but not least, capers are also used successfully in the cosmetics industry. At present there are a lot of creams and lotions that have capers as an ingredient.

In the kitchen, capers usually accompany smoked fish, anchovy fillets, lamb or beef, but can also be used in salads, pizza, mayonnaise, sauces, rice or egg-based appetizers.

The best known preparation that contains capers as an ingredient is "Mediterranean Tapenada" - a pasta sauce that is prepared with capers, black olives and anchovies, mixed with olive oil and served on toast.

Capers have detoxifying properties for the body, acting on the liver, kidney, bile, intestine. They have a high content of bioflavonoids, substances with a strong antioxidant character that neutralize free radicals produced in the body. Capers are also rich in vitamin C and also in minerals and fiber.

They are low-calorie foods bringing a low calorie intake by consuming only 23 calories per 100g. Due to the substances contained, they have a role in stimulating the metabolism of fats and thus in their better burning.

Did you know that: the most expensive capers are those that do not exceed 10 mm and are grown in France?
