making it

The Mousse:

In a food processor or hand-held mixer (originally a mortar and pestle was used), blend all of the ingredients, except the vinegar, until of a smooth consistency. Mix in vinegar to taste. This quick and simple recipe can be used as a spread over rustic toasted bread or to season pasta dishes.

The pan nociato al miele:

Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water and let stand in a warm, humid spot until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients. Once yeast mixture has doubled in size, add it to the nut-flour mixture and knead till smooth. Shape the bread into a loaf and place into greased loaf pan; let rise till doubled. Bake in a preheated oven at 200° C for 35-40 minutes. Let stand before slicing and serving with the Mousse di formaggio.
