I have a culinary confession to make. I’m not crazy about porcini mushrooms. Let me clarify, I’m not crazy about dried porcini mushrooms.
I can’t tell you how relieved I was to bake something that wasn’t with mangoes. Maybe you also are feeling a little relief. I didn’t realize that mangoes are such a hit or miss fruit with people. Kind of like cilantro.
Thinking of what to bake while in Italy is never easy. The requests start to come trickling in on about day 3 from my sister-in-law that has a huge sweet tooth. I settled on this quick and painless peach and cornmeal upside-down cake for a couple reasons.
You may be wondering what is a lasagna tray doing at an Italian Barbecue?!? At an Italian grigliata (barbecue), you will surely find plenty of delicious meat. Minus the sauce. They don’t smother their meat in sweet sauces usually as we do in the States. There is usually a wonderfully light sauce based on olive oil and fresh herbs.
