Just today I’ve encountered an excellent idea of how to celebrate the New Year. Dispose randomly all seven deadly sins from the Bible in your company and enjoy them the whole night long.

Ravioli filled with ricotta and lemon from Amalfi Recipe
Recipe Type: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian Cuisine
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 grs flour 200 grs ricotta – 10 grs preserved lemon
  • 1 lemon (zest)
  • 100 grs crabmeat
  • 1 broccoli
  • 4 tomatoes (confit)
  • Aromatics herbs
  • 100 grs ricotta
  1. Mix the ricotta cheese with salt, pepper, candy lemon and fresh lemon zest.
  2. Roll out the dough and fill with the ricotta cheese.
  3. On the side, prepare a cream of broccoli, and keep aside some broccoli cream.
  4. Blanch the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and put in the oven to dry.
  5. Cook the pasta and mix with the crab meat.
  6. Dispose the dish like mentioned on the picture.


And we started to discuss all these seven sins with my friends to find out the choice of each other. Well, I think you understand why it was me who chose gluttony.

And all of us came to the same conclusion, that it would be a bad luck for a person to get envy sin. Just try to imagine how difficult it might be to remain the only envy person, while everyone is enjoying their sins.

Well then…

There’s only one reason to envy a food-photographer. No, actually two. The first reason is the fact that food-photographers do what they love, while you’re wearing out the seat of your trousers in the office. It’s roughly speaking, in case you’re really envy. Remember, envy is a bad thing:)

And the second reason is that a food-photographer can eat for free in Michelin-starred restaurants. And believe me, we do it with a really great pleasure. But gluttony has a by-effect. You gain weight really fast.

But you shouldn’t be envy at least today. Since you have an opportunity to cook this splendid dish of this great, but very modest Michelin-starred Chef De Berardinis Luca.

And I’ve got some more good news for you. You can hardly gain any weight with this dish.
