Nonna Margherita Dottorelli in her kitchen, 1905
Some excellent Tuscan recipes from her granddaughter, Marta Dottorelli, who refuses to be just a character in a novel called The Whirling Girl, made up by that writer.Today, Zuppa di Crescione, Watercress Soup
When the beautiful Signora Chiara (whose house I take care of) was painting in the hills this morning, I took my motorino through the woods to the pool by the waterfall where recently she swam naked with the British archaeologist.
She does not know I know this.
Beh! There is not much in our zona that Marta Dottorelli does not know.
Near this pool, where the stream runs clear, is the place where the crescione -- the watercress – grows.
