I based myself on the delicious galette from Falastin with beetroot and feta and turned it into a version à la provençale with chèvre and a lot of thyme as well as honey from the region. A labour of love which is worth every minute of thought and work. To […]

We found some delicious looking pulpo last weekend at the market in Pernes-les-Fontaines and I could simply not resist the freshness and temptation! I made this receipe up as I went along and was really happy with the overall taste and the balanced flavours … the lemon zest, the taste […]
Are you also having “that kind of Monday”? I certainly am … so I decided to treat myself with some olives…even better, this gorgeous smelling olive sourdough bread. What do you do, when you are having “one of those days”?
I am sure you have seen the craze about the baked feta pasta lately…well, I decided to join…but my way… As you might know, I love Mediterranean food, so I decided to give this famous dish a certain twist. A quick mid-week pasta dish that will leave you surprised
I guess you can’t go more Mediterranean than with this beautiful clementine and almond cake. It is my first experience with muscovado sugar and I like the way the smoky taste is an amazing contrast to the slightly bitter clementine and lemon pulp. The crunchy topping is the perfect contrast […]
This not really a receipe, more a creative moment in my kitchen: A few days ago I cooked some artichokes with lemon until they were both nice and tender. I then drained them while keeping the water I had cooked them in. Tonight I decided to cook some red wheat […]
When life sends you #artichokes … you make #artichokefrittata Thank you @crowdcontainer for having organised these tasty and tender artichokes. I woke up with the desire to fully use these beauties (actually wanted to make pancakes) and just followed my instinct … and here you go … a very tasty […]
For those of you, who are “cacio e pepe lovers” like me, this is a welcome and wintery variation – especially in the peak of the orange season. I was a bit sceptical to change this “sacro santo” from Rome, but my brave move was rewarded with this super tasty […]
An autumn version of the highly loved baklava…great way to use up some apples, which are no longer as crunchy as you wish. I was amazed at how much flavour the first walnuts have – welcome to my home, baklava…! As juicy and sweet as baklava can get…with a touch […]
Just before another summer weekend, I thought I would share the receipe for this flavour-intensive salad with the best that nature has to offer at this moment: ripe and sun-blessed tomatoes, firm zucchinis and sharp basil. This easy to make salad can be kept 1-2 days and is best with […]
Inspired by Ottolenghi, I have made my own version of this delicious starter. I served it with pita bread on the first day and then had it as a salad with green leaves the second day. The aubergine will keep well in the fridge for 2-3 days…and they will only […]
Muhammara is a dip made from red pepperoni and walnuts. It is lovely in a cheese sandwich, served with grilled red meet or just as a dip – as I served it the other day. The fava bean mash is a nice contrast to the rather spicy muhammara, which can […]
I was asked for my shakshuka receipe…there are already so many out there, but I must admit, this one did taste very good! As with many receipes, shakshuka tastes the best when you put a lot of love…and what you have in the fridge….into it!
To find land seaweed (or barba di frate in Italian) is a real treat….which I definitely don’t miss out on. This vegetable looks like a mixture of chives and seaweed…comes with quite strong roots, which need to be carefully removed before cooking. Some add anchovies to the mixture, I prefer […]
Inspired by a receipe from “Brunch the Sunday way”, I created this Mediterranean bread, which works well as a snack, an apéro, for brunch and as a side for a green salad. Depending on what you have available (herbs, cheese, flours, seeds), this cake can be totally different every time […]
