Although our first cooking contest has just finished, we’ve already prepared the second one… This time with a classic theme, but not less tasty: the Easter cakes 😀 . Obviously the unmissable recipe is a traditional Pastiera, the rich Neapolitan cake made with ricotta cheese and candied fruit 🙂 .
To enter the contest, you need to publish a recipe for a cake typical of the Easter period. Sweet and salted pies are both valid. The recipe can be a traditional cake of your area, a reviewed version of a traditional recipe, and why not one of your invention that you think may be associated with Easter 🙂 . You can participate with as many recipes as you want, both sweet and salted.
There will be only one winning recipe, the author will receive a prize. We’re really saying “a prize” is not a joke! In fact we are still choosing the prize and we’ll shortly announce it.
To determine the best recipe we can not rely only on photos and description; we will choose the three recipes that inspire us most, regardless if they are sweet or salted, and prepare them following precisely your instructions… So we can delight us with your proposals and select the winner by the only constant in cooking: taste 😉 .
But now no more talk, grab your notebooks and ladles, and let’s get to work.
All participant recipes will be listed at the bottom of this post.
