One of the foods I love the most is Wähe – a Swiss version of the tart, that’s made with either fruit or vegs and some sort of a curd to hold it all together. My favorite version is sweet, of course (incorrigible sweet tooth, me). I like to make them with seasonal produce –Continue reading
They say that you’re technically a grown-up at age 18… Well, I don’t know about you, but I most certainly wasn’t a grown-up at 18. To be honest, I’m still not sure wether I’d actively call myself “grown-up”, even now. First, this term leaves no room for imagination. It’s such an unforgiving term. Maybe IContinue reading
To whom sourcing local ingredients is a major concern, brussels sprouts are no doubt a welcome treat during the colder weather season. I love those buddies! Their taste, first and foremost, their texture (especially when roasted, which lends it an incomparable nutty flavor) and not least their looks.
Happy New Year & welcome, 2016! May it be a year filled with light, love and lots of good food for you. They say you can make new year’s wishes until the 6th in Switzerland, so I guess I’m still on schedule. We celebrated NYE with a couple of friends in our home with aContinue reading
Incredible how fast time goes by… I’ve been meaning to get into Holiday Baking much earlier, but life got in the way. December… Gotta love this season! So many plans, so little time. As it turns out, this Sunday was the first opportunity to simply bake something (not strictly necessary). So I got into theContinue reading
How does “Two Turkey Thanksgiving” sound to you…? Our friends hosted their annual Thanksgiving fête last Sunday, and because their guest list is ever growing, two turkeys had to be made. So Günther (the 10th!) was joined by Hildegard (the 1st). And I, as the closest (geographically) and their neighbor, had the honor to roastContinue reading
You darlings! I have to thank you for that overwhelming response to the design of the site and also the giveaway (still running until tomorrow, so make sure to enter a comment below the post). I would have never dreamed in my wildest dreams that anyone would be interested in receiving mail from me, but itContinue reading
Normally, I’d be working on putting together The List for my Seasonal Bucket List – but this year, it just feels like we’re still so far away from Winter and The Holidays… Or maybe this year just went too fast? It sure was an eventful on. Normally, by this time, I’d be well intoContinue reading
though the weather has been wonderful, thirty-something years’ worth of experience tell me that this current swiss summer weather likely won’t stay forever… something tells me it will soon make way for proper, spring-like unpredictability. that’s what i’ve grown to know (and love, kind of).
pavlova! i don’t think this ever gets boring. clouds of meringues, tart, boozy cherries on top, hints of cardamom… what’s not to like? in other words: i’m really into pavlova. i mean i wish i could be one. no! i really mean: i just really like pavlova. full stop. and i can’t wait for springContinue reading
Hello and welcome on F&F! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Scarlett and I love to elevate the everyday with honest, simple food. Recently, a baby (born in December 16) was also thrown into the mix. Please excuse my mom rambles already, thank you. I love to take you on journey through my life! See what I've been cooking, where we've been eating or are going for a stroll. And for yet more inspiration follow along my adventures on Social Media:
