DO YOU BELIEVE IN FAIRY TALES?

There once was a strange land, far away where the sun shines. It was a land of strange mountains and quaint little villages, full of mystery and beauty, and it was called Cappadocia. In the heart of this wondrous place stood a Greek mansion, carved from the very caves set in the side of the magical hills…

A FAIRY TALE?

Actually, the truth is possibly even more fantastic. For the sacred House is a Greek mansion hewn from caves in Cappadocia and it is every bit as magical and unusual as you could imagine. Once the mansion of a Greek aristocrat, it is now a hotel with just 21 rooms. Each room is decorated in its own very distinctive style, the interiors reflecting the formation of the rock of which they are a part. For the searchers, Who are looking for something sacred in their lives, A sacred love, passion or affection...

Bartolomeo Scappi (c.1500-13 April 1577) was a famous Renaissance chef. His origins had been the subject of speculation, but recent research shows that he came from the town of Dumenza in Lombardy, according to the inscription on a stone plaque in the church of Luino. [1] Prior to this, the first known fact in his life had been that in April 1536, he organised a banquet while he was in the service of Cardinal Lorenzo Campeggio. [2] He served several other cardinals after this, then began to serve pope Pius IV, entering the service of the Vatican kitchen. He continued to work as a chef for the pope Pius V. He acquired fame in 1570 when his monumental cookbook Opera dell’arte del cucinare was published. This corse is from the cookbook Opera dell’arte and the recipe is a secret.

GOURMET

“Quail egg with garum sauce served with smoked red onion and spices”. Garum was a fermented fish sauce used as a condiment [1] in the cuisines of ancient Greece, Rome, and Byzantium. Garum fish paste was prepared from the blood and intestines of fish through the process of autolysis. Fishermen would lay out their catch according to the type and part of the fish, allowing makers to pick the exact ingredients they wanted. The fish parts were then macerated in salt, and cured in the sun for one to three months. The mixture fermented and liquified in the dry warmth, with the salt inhibiting the common agents of decay. Garum was the clear liquid that formed on the top, drawn off by means of a fine strainer inserted into the fermenting vessel. The sediment or sludge that remained wasallec. Concentrated decoctions of aromatic herbs might be added. Flavors would vary according to the locale, with ingredients sometimes from in-house gardens. The end product was very nutritious, retaining a high amount of protein and amino acids, along with a good deal of minerals and B vitamins.
