        Casa della Pace's way of cooking
about the vegetarian diet
health and vegetarian diet
recipes index

Casa della Pace’s recipes are the result of years of experimenting vegetarian and vegan cookery, periods of study and meeting with many people coming from different parts of the world.
Generally they are representative of Mediterranean culture, but some are influenced by India and other countries.
Frequent questions from guests are: “what is there in this dish”, “What is the spice in this soup?” . . . . .  In fact many of our dishes doesn’t belong to any tradition, or they are traditional, or almost forgotten recipes, revised, as in home baking.
Here I am offering some of our recipes, hoping people will try them out and experiment with them.
The aim of our way of cooking is to explore the various tastes of foods, offering a variety of appealing dishes, and paying attention to their balance and using only healthy ingredients.
A good part of guests’ book comments speak about food with enthusiasm.
Below you may read a few of them in different languages:
