We place them in the oven, previously pre heated to 180 degrees and let cook for about 20 mins, using a toothpick or knife to stab the center to make sure its properly cooked when done. We also place the grapes in the oven, but remove them in ah=bout 10 mins and preserve hot.

 

In a pan, we take the mixed mushrooms and sautee them in olive oil until they reach a beautiful golden color.

We proceed to remove the sweet potato from the oven and grate some Stella parmesan cheese,  top with the mushrooms, grapes and add some chunks that of that same Stella aged parmesan that is the key ingredient to give that savory touch that will enhance the rest of the flavor. Garnish with some fresh parsley and enjoy with a nice Glass of wine!

NEW PARFUM BY DOLCE & GABBANA

EL CONCEPTO

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso es puro instinto, el poder de una emoción que se expresa libremente. Es la fuerza de un hombre con carácter, con el corazón anclado en la tradición pero que disfruta del mundo moderno.
Dolce&Gabbana Intenso es una fragancia con aroma amaderado cuyo atractivo viene definido por un descubrimiento totalmente nuevo en el mundo olfativo: el toque de Moepel que se ha recreado a partir de las flores y hojas del árbol de Moepel por medio de la tecnología Headspace.

EL DISEÑO

Dolce&Gabbana Intenso representa a la nueva generación de hombres Dolce&Gabbana, cuyo corazón está profundamente ligado a la tradición. Siguiendo ese mismo patrón, Intenso marca y celebra sus vínculos con Pour Homme marcando las características líneas de su diseño. El clásico frasco, elegante y sencillo de silueta curva y tapón cilíndrico tiene un toque más fresco gracias al cristal lacado en marrón tabaco y al logotipo de Dolce&Gabbana con un elegante sombreado cobrizo.

CORAZÓN

Primero aparecen las notas de lavanda y, a continuación, la masculinidad del tabaco se acentúa con las suaves y secas notas de heno y trigo. Las notas de salvia y flor de ciprés consiguen una esencia pura y elegante.

FONDO

El toque Moepel aporta carácter y determinación a la esencia, envolviéndola con lujosos toques florales, balsámicos y de miel. La profunda combinación de notas de resina de jara, madera de sándalo, ámbar y almizcle aportan intensidad y fuerza. La fragancia se completa con un contraste fresco, rico y cálido que refuerza la calidez de su toque amaderado.

EL TOQUE DE MOEPEL

Utilizado por primera vez en perfumería, el acorde de Moepel es el ingrediente clave de Intenso.
El Mopel, comúnmente conocido como Milkwood, es un árbol autóctono de Sudáfrica de aroma totalmente único. El nombre deriva de la resina que contiene.

La esencia se ha obtenido por medio de la tecnología Headspace, que capta y recrea la combinación tanto de las flores como de las hojas de este majestuoso árbol. Se trata de una nota extremadamente sensual, casi animal, con toques florales, balsámicos y de miel que evocan una moderna interpretación del clásico efecto del tabaco.


THE CONCEPT

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso is pure instinct; the power of an emotion that is freely expressed. It is the force of a determined man, with a heart that is rooted in tradition, yet revels in the modern world. Dolce&Gabbana Intenso is a woody aromatic fragrance, whose profound appeal is defined by a brand new discovery in the olfactory world: the Moepel accord which has been re-created from the flowers and leaves of the Milkwood tree using Headspace technology.

THE DESIGN

Dolce&Gabbana Intenso represents the new generation of Dolce&Gabbana men, whose heart is simultaneously rooted in tradition. In the same pattern, Intenso marks and celebrates its ties with Pour Homme by mirroring the iconic lines of its design. The classic flacon, elegant and understated with its curved silhouette and cylindrical cap, is refreshed in a dark tobacco brown lacquered glass, embossed with the Dolce&Gabbana logo in an elegant copper shade.

TOP

Intenso opens with luminous Aquatic notes and green accents of Basil. This fresh feeling is completed with notes of Marigold and Geranium.

HEART

First come the notes of lavender and thenThe tobacco masculinity is further defined with soft dry notes from Absolutes of Hay and Bran.

BASE

Luxurious floral, balsamic, and honey accents. Intensity and strength come from the profound combination Labdanum, Sandalwood and Cypress. A contrast of fresh, warm and rich, that completes the composition of the fragrance and emphasises its woody charm.

THE MOEPEL ACCORD

Used for the very first time in perfumery, the Moepel accord is the key signature ingredient of Intenso. The Moepel, or Milkwood, is a tree which grows in South Africa and whose odour is totally unique. The name derives from the latex the tree contains. The accord has been obtained using the Headspace technology, which captures and recreates the combination of both the flowers and the leaves of this majestic tree. It is a new extremely sensual, almost animalic note with floral, balsamic and rich honey accents, which drive a uniquely modern interpretation of the classic tobacco effect.
