The word roulette is French for “small wheel.” Although the origins of the game have not been clearly discussed, it is believed that the first roulette came from England in the 1700s.
Operators of the world-famous Monte Carlo Casino, the Blanc brothers Louis and Francois designed the roulette table layout, which practically remains the same until today.
Roulette continues to attract more and players around the world and remains as one of the most symbolic gambling games.
There have been a lot of changes in my life in the past year, which is making it difficult to manager my 2 blogs, Diva Eats Italia & Diva Eats World.
To make it easier on myself, I’ve decided to merge the 2 under the name Diva Eats World. All the recipes here on these pages will remain live, but all new Italian recipes will be posted on Diva Eats World If you haven’t been over to Diva Eats World, give it a go.
There are some great recipes from my travels, friends and family that cover the globe! Thanks, D I V A (RECIPE) Pollo al mattone, is Italian for chicken under the brick.
It refers to a method of grilling, where a brick is placed on top of a whole chicken while cooking.
The weight of the brick makes the bird have complete contact with the heat.
This allows it to cook evenly and get nice and golden brown.
It’s said that this method originated in a little town outside Florence, where they’re known for terra cotta tiles. D I V A Pin It (RECIPE) For Italians, Easter is a huge baking holiday.
Barbuto, my favorite restaurant in Manhattan, is known for their brick oven chicken that they serve with salsa verde. My salsa verde is simply a sauce made from, extra virgin olive oil, capers, lemon zest and some chopped herbs, such as tarragon, basil and parsley. Now that grilling season is upon us, go get yourself some clean bricks and grill away. Pies, cakes, breads and cookies, both savory and sweet, grace the Easter tables of all Italian families.
I think Easter may have surpassed Christmas in terms of baking.
