6 weeks of summer holidays were over, we had a great time. First week we spent in Mallorca, Spain; then back in Basel, in-laws came to visit and celebrated Marc’s birthday together. Then we spent the remaining 3 weeks in Hong Kong visiting my parents, in the meantime, we all spent a few days in Okinawa, Japan together. We were very lucky with the weather most of the time, gorgeous beaches with fine sand and turquoise water, heavenly!
Coming back, it’s back to normal, back to real life. Marc starts at Primary school, luckily first week went well so far.
As for me, I needed to restock some food supply for home, we had nothing in the house, so we went to Manor last Saturday after some unpacking. We planned to make fish tacos last weekend and needed some tomatoes and there I saw SAN MARZANO tomatoes!!! I got very excited already as I was already looking for them in the farm near home but didn’t see that day. So quickly grabbed 2 kilos to make some fresh homemade Italian tomato sauce (Sugo). I got this recipe from my friend Sarah, from her mother-in-law. She is Italian, so of course the recipe is authentic!!!!
Making sugo was quite a lot work but the making of it was very therapeutic. I am so happy to see the local produce, after coming back here, the colors are much vivid, vibrant, shiny and inviting.
In Hong Kong, the imported vegetables and fruits look more dull and expensive, that explains why we should best eat the seasonal local produce.
So sitting in my iPhone some notes and keywords of how to make Sugo, I thought I should write it up and share with those who are interested.
