Savoury pumpkin pie.

Savoury pumpkin pie.

After a wonderful but rainy week end in Ljubljana I’m back, not rested but happy! 🙂

Douring the next weeks I’ll have no time to cook and take pictures but I have photos of this and three more recipes so I only have to write.

While I was away I became, for the first time, an aunt: I’m so happy and I want to congratulate Francesca and Pietro and the small and beautiful Samuele.

To celebrate I promised the new mum a luxury, all chocolate cake made by the Pastry Queen 2012 Sonia Balacchi, of course I’m looking forward to eat it too!

Waiting for this delice I give you the recipe of a very tasty savoury pie made with pumpkin.
