Summer Kitchen

Tagliatelle with Capers and Anchovies

By Ralph Kratzer

SummerHot weather requires slight diet that nonetheless supplies the body with all the necessary nutrients.

The important thing in my little series of recipes called “summer kitchen” is that your time in the kitchen is limited to a minimum and the dishes are light and easy to digest.

Enjoy the summer and happy cooking!
