Gnudi
Gnudi means, well, “nude” — because these are nude ravioli, the filling without the outer pasta covering. They are delicious served with tomato sauce, as in this recipe, or with melted butter and sage.

An elegant dessert sandwich. Impress your friends or fellow sandwich lovers with these incredibly easy (and quick) wine-poached pears. Ricotta adds creaminess and a bit of sweetness, and the brioche acts as a fluffy, buttery base. Taste your ricotta first — beat in a touch of sugar or lemon juice and zest to taste, if desired.

Lavender
The batter can be made before dinner, and then it is just a matter of deep-frying the fritters. The reward will be crisp, freshly cooked, melt-in-your-mouth morsels with soft lemony centers, just the thing to dip into fragrant lavender honey. In Provence, the bees that frequent the wild purple-budded bushes growing near their hives make lavender honey. Be aware that this homemade version, infused with lavender flowers, needs to stand for 24 hours before being used. Only your own lavender will do, freshly harvested from the garden.

Crostini with Ricotta, Truffle Honey, and Smoked Salts
Four ingredients: bread, ricotta, honey, and salt — the essence of simplicity. Let's take that freshly baked baguette from your corner bakery, light and fluffy homemade ricotta, ambrosial truffle honey, and pungent smoked salts and transform a simple dish into a celestial one. These crostini make superb hors d'oeuvres, but you can also serve them as a light cheese course, a prelude to dessert. Either way, they're pure heaven to the taste buds. On a side note, I tend to prefer white truffle honey because it has more flavor than honey infused with black truffles. You can find truffle honey and smoked salts in gourmet and specialty food stores. Now I'm craving one of these crostini… Off to the kitchen I go!
