Baked apples are a real comfort food. I often stash them in the oven just before dinner, allowing them enough time to cook at a lower temperature, until they become soft and glossy with honey. I like to serve these alongside a scoop of vanilla gelato; the combo is the ultimate post-dinner treat.
Giulia was born in a farmhouse in the countryside near Siena, the same place that she calls home now, a peaceful corner in the hills of Tuscany, where Giulia’s family has been living since the 1920s.
Giulia, a food writer and food photographer, loves honest simple food: seasonal products, family recipes, memories and stories. She started her blog in 2009. Tommaso, her husband now and the head tester, joined Giulia, embracing her life project, contributing to Juls’ Kitchen with his passion for Social Media, photography and video making.
You can find them on line, or teaching Tuscan cooking classes in their cooking studio, shopping at the market or picking the seasonal produce directly from their vegetable garden to cook up a storm for family and friends.
