Ely's Kitchen

Chocolate and other remedies



Elisa, but most people who know me call me Ely. Welcome to my pleasures of the palate corner. I love baking mainly anything which contains some sort of chocolate while listening to some good old Italian music or relaxing notes by Einaudi. When I’m not baking I enjoy horse riding, salsa dancing and travel. But my hands always fill shaky, in need to knead more dough for the next bake. Nonetheless you may find the occasional savoury recipe as well.


Elisa, ma quasi tutti mi chiamo Ely. Benvenuti nel mio piccolo angolo dei piaceri del palato. Amo fare dolci principalmente qualsiasi cosa che contenga del cioccolato  mentre ascolto della buona musica italiana o qualche nota rilassante di Einaudi. Quando non sono ai fornelli amo andare a cavallo, ballare la salsa e viaggiare. Ma le mie mani sono sempre in frenesia, pronte ad impastare il prossimo dolce. Nonostante cio potrete anche trovare l’occasionale ricetta salata.

Buona lettura!

Me encanta hacer pastelería, principalmente todo lo que contiene algún tipo de chocolate mientras escucho buena música italiana o relajantes notasa de Einaudi. Cuando no estoy preparando algún dulce, me gusta montar a caballo, bailar salsa y viajar. Pero mis manos siempre están siempre agitadas, con la necesidad de amasar más pasta para el próximo dulce. Sin embargo es posible que ocasionalmente aquí también vais a encontrar alguna receta sabrosa.

These below are my two, ehm, “assistants”. Careful observers of my work in the kitchen and always hoping I drop something on the floor or get distracted so they can steal from the table.

Questi sotto sono i miei due, ehm, “assistenti”. Attenti osservatori del mio lavoro in cucina e sempre speranzosi che mi cada qualcosa per terra o che mi distragga per lasciar loro via libera di andare a rubare sul tavolo.

Estos debajo son mis dos, ehm, “ayudantes”. Observadores cuidadosos de mi trabajo en la cocina, siempre están esperando que me cae algo en el suelo o me distraigo dejando todo despejado para que puedan robar de la mesa.
