Cookies

Like many good things, cookies were a mistake. Let us set the scene: the ‘30s, the Toll House Inn. Ruth Wakefield, the owner, has finished the powdered cocoa used to bake butter biscuits for her guests. A snap decision: she crushes a chocolate bar and adds it to the dough. Surely it will melt. But it did not. And so the most famous cookie in the States was born. Not exactly a light snack, but who are we to complain?

Continue until you obtain a smooth cream (4). Make your life easier by resting the bowl on a damp cloth so it does not slip away while you mix. Gradually add two lightly whisked eggs (5) and mix well until you have poured in all the eggs (6).

Add the chocolate chips (10) so that they spread evenly. With an ice cream scoop (or a simple spoon) scoop out some dough, then use your hands to create round spheres of 50 g each (11). Place on a drip or baking pan covered with baking parchment (12).

We decided to place eight, evenly spaced spheres (13) on a baking pan to ensure they do not merge during baking. The listed ingredients will yield approximately 20 cookies. Before baking, place the cookies in the fridge for approximately 1 hour to ensure they keep their shape when in the oven. Preheat the oven at 160 °C; place the tray in the middle of the oven and bake for around 35 to 40 minutes. They will be ready when crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (14). Place the cookies on a cooling grid (15). As soon as they are cool to the touch your cookies will be ready for eating! 


Keep your cookies in a tin box for up to 3 to 4 days. Cookies Policy

Constellation of art, culture and history in the Dolomites

SMACH.

SMACH is an open air exhibition that represents the combination of ‘art and nature’, where the latter acts as the display of the artistic creations, designed and tailored specifically to various sites with historical and cultural significance in the municipalities of San Martino in Badia and Marebbe.

Biennial format

SMACH is a biennial event created by Michael Moling, and supported by Gustav Willeit and Katharina Moling, who are also the project’s organisers and promoters. The artists selected are asked to create their projects during a residency across different locations in precise spots in the Dolomite valleys. An international jury chooses the winners – rewarded with a prize money – and the exhibition, which is located between 1,100 and 2,800 m altitude, can be seen from the beginning of July to the start of September. The last edition received 502 projects from all over the world: a number which has snowballed over time, confirming the ever-growing interest of a unique event in a Ladin region.

The 2019 Jury: Michael Petry – Jury President, Gianluca D'Incà Levis, Julia Bornefeld, Gehard Demetz, Guus van den Hout, Gustav Willeit – Consultant, SMACH Committee, Michael Moling – Consultant, SMACH President, Katy Moling – Consultant, SMACH Vice-President

The Val dl’Ert

The Val dl’Ert, Ladin for ‘The Art Valley’, is a recent creation: it hosts the permanent exhibition of the sculptures received during the last SMACH editions. Another phase for a project which is always evolving.

Site specific

Our studio planned and created all the communication material – logo, website, inserts, signposts, displays, press campaign and social media– but is also in charge of financial management, artist hospitality, material logistics, and the works of art. We firmly believe in this project and we channel energy, passion, enthusiasm into the event. Our aspirations are for it to become even more open, enhancing tourism in the Dolomites in an alternative way, one which takes a step back from the usual cliched offers and the heavy exploitation of our valley.

Artistic events, exhibitions, displays: we give life to your new project.
