Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

I’ve got only one word to describe my life in the past few weeks: BUSY!

I’m working on a number of different projects which I will share with you soon. Just to give u a heads up, among many other things, I am organizing, together with Golden Gate Grapes, a 4 day wine tasting class for the month of November. The course will be teached by Mike Gaudette, a graduate of Le Cordon Blue Wine Class in Paris.

He certainly knows wine…

I’ll update you with all the details in the coming days and if you are in Shanghai I will strongly recommend you to join us to learn more about wine and meet other wine lovers!

Said that I’ll stop promoting my own ideas and talk a bit of food with you…

Have I ever told you how much I love sweet potatoes? I don’t know why but every time I see someone on the street selling roasted sweet potatoes I have to buy one and eat it hot and steamy on my way back home…I’m an addictive-prone girl…what do you want me to say?

The other day I saw sweet potatoes at the grocery shop downstairs my building and I just couldn’t resist, so I bought one and made this recipe…I’m glad I did!

If you are a sweet potato lover like me, make this! You won’t regret it 🙂
