- ‘Apéro’ dips

So, why not to talk about the weather again ? As I said last year at the same period, we are all waiting for summer, at least Spring. Picnics have started for one week-end and already the weather is awful.

This little vicious everyday rain, a bit, a few minutes a day, just to spoil your blow dry and make you upset as in the morning it was sunny and you left home with sandals…

When I need a bit of sun and spring in my life, I cook Summer dishes, organize ‘apero’ and nibbles, like they already do for a long time this year in the south of France.

3 different dips… I am obviously thinking about my sister as she is the queen of ‘apero’ and known throughout the city of Nice as it.


Parmesan cheese and with wine :

  • 150g of grated parmesan cheese
  • 50ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 100ml of dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp of dry oregano


Put all the ingredient in a bowl and mix.


Beans and chili spread :

  • 1 small can of barlotti beans
  • 1 small can of kidney beans
  • 1 dry chili soaked in water (like pasilla or guajillo) or 1 tsp of harissa paste
  • Olive oil


Put the 2 cans of beans in a food processor with the chili, blend and add a bit of olive oil to make a smooth paste.



  • 2 cups of sesame seeds
  • Vegetable oil


Preheat the oven at 180°, put the sesame on a baking parchment and bake for 8/10 min, don’t let brown. Add the oil slowly by slowly till obtain the consistency of peanut butter.
