when my plans are changed

Last week I was going to my favourite deli shop Frische Paradies to buy veel cheeks. But they didn’t have it. Once I was already there, decided to go for something else. Something fancy I have never cooked before. Poussins got me. I did recipe research and found this awesome recipe. Roasted poussins with pomegranate sauce and … Continue reading

a summer soup refreshment

I’m back on the blogging track after two months of travelling around and working. I have had to come up with some summer refreshment these hot days. On my visit of Slovakia I got a cook book from my friend Daska – Chef at the Palace by Jaroslav Zidek, one of my most favourite Czech … Continue reading

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

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

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

TORTA SALATA CON RADICCHIO ROSSO BY MARIA

This tart was recommended to me by a friend of mine Maria. She lives with her family on a lovely farm Oliwood in the countryside of Tuscany. They grow many types of fruit and vegetable there. Nowadays, Maria starts to learn how to produce an olive oil. I really admire her! In my research, I had … Continue reading
