marriage made in heaven

If you are a fan of extraordinary combinations, this is a great option for you. Crisp oyster mushrooms with roast chicory – a vegetable with white leaves that taste bitter and are usually eaten raw in salads. I love it both ways fresh and roasted! This sweet and tangy jewel is perfect by itself or … Continue reading

I AM A CHILLI GIRL

Once my mum told me a story how I had become a fan of chilli. I was 2 or 3 years old. My father was eating something with hot peppers and I asked for some. My mum almost got heart attack and wanted to stop my father. Despite of that, he gave me a piece … Continue reading

NO RESERVATIONS

I have to confess that I looove cheesy romantic films and I am not ashamed of crying at all while watching them. But only on Sundays after the party weekends. I am usually lazy to cook, so I make frozen pizza or order a meal delivery service. Well, nobody is perfect… One of those Sundays, … Continue reading

Panakis has been working for http://www.fortnumandmason.com/, which is a department store recognised internationally for its high quality goods and as an iconic British symbol. Fortnum and Mason has … Continue reading

LATIN FLAVOUR

It was New Year’s afternoon and my spontaneous surprising guests from Prague and I decided to go to our favourite Korean place in Berlin, but it was closed. After heavy thinking (you can imagine the hard work after the New Year’s party), I recalled a Peruvian restaurant where my flat mate goes with her Uruguayan boyfriend every … Continue reading

CHRISTMAS FOOD NIRVANA

This year I had really different Christmas holiday. I spent it at my friends‘ place and cooked for eight people. That was a big challenge. Not because of the number of people, but because I decided to prepare some dishes I have never made before. Goose liver and roast goose were totally new for me. … Continue reading

XMAS GIFTS WITHOUT STRESS

In 2011 I have decided to do things differently. I have tried to keep the promise, I gave to myself in the beginning of the year, during the Christmas time as well. So I didn’t run around the shops to get presents, but I have made them. These four delicious presents don’t take more than … Continue reading

A LIFETIME AFFAIR

Squash (genus Cucurbita), also called marrow, is that kind of food that has never disappointed me. I love it! When I was a kid, I couldn’t have confessed to my classmates or friends that I was crazy about pumpkin. It was rather underestimated vegetable at that time. At least in my home country. All the … Continue reading

Hell yeah, it’s a stew time, babe! SOMERSET STEW WITH CHEDDAR & PARSNIP MASH Ingredients: 1 tbsp oil / 1 onion, finely chopped / 1 … Continue reading
