Einkorn Risotto with Pea Pesto & Artichokes

Einkorn Risotto with Pea Pesto & Artichokes

i’m obsessed with rare foods… it’s like my personal challenge to find ways to incorporate them into a meal (that you would actually want to eat). so when i discovered einkorn, i knew it had to be turned into something equal parts simple and special. to make a risotto with the grain seemed like a...

Pineapple & Cucumber Gazpacho

Pineapple & Cucumber Gazpacho

on hot days, what’s really better than a refreshing, vegetable based meal? slightly chilled and light. or if it can’t be a popsicle (because we probably shouldn’t be eating ice cream all day long, sighs), make it a chilled soup, instead! without a doubt, i am a big fan of chilled soups… so far, i’ve...

Grilled Asparagus with Burrata & Ramps Oil

Grilled Asparagus with Burrata & Ramps Oil

this spring, inexplicably, i haven’t gotten around to enjoying gathering my own share of spring’s abundance. as a self-declared “herbal witch” and a big fan of gathering – see evidence from former gathering sessions here, here, here or here – i feel so ashamed to admit i’ve never even picked one leaf this season. and i’m afraid many of the wild...

Springlike Watercress Soup

Springlike Watercress Soup

for some, working out is the main source of energy, and for me it occasionally is. though recently i’m much more into “slowing down” while exercising, not pushing my limits. i.e. ballet and yoga do the trick. so graceful and cute – or much rather admittedly ridiculous and lots of fun, those ballet classes for...

Layered Salad in a Jar with Quick Flatbread

Layered Salad in a Jar with Quick Flatbread

just in time for spring, trust on me to develop a diffuse kind of spring detox cleaning sensation. i want to throw everything out that’s superfluos, polish the candle sticks and silver, paint the walls a crisp, new white, wash every last bit of garment in my house, unfold and fold it anew, rethink everything....

Summer Rolls with Crudités

Summer Rolls with Crudités

there was hardly a thing i loved to snack on more than on crudités, or raw vegs. anything raw – from carrots to fennel and kohlrabi – was my friend. for kindergarten and school, i wouldn’t take a granola bar or an apple with me, i’d ask mom to give me a whole fennel. nobody...

Fennel Radish Salad (with Hemp Seeds)

Fennel Radish Salad (with Hemp Seeds)

this has been such a wonderful and happy – albeit very intense – week! so many good surprises (like a new project at work), a blog project that we’ve put the finish touches on (i am sorry i will only be able to reveal what it is later – i.e. next month). the only thing that’s...

Roasted Peppers Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Peppers Mashed Potatoes

i’m not the biggest fan of mash – though my better half definitely is. he likes everything mashed or pureed, from potato mash to celery mash and pumpkin and everything in between. so, occasionally, i’ll venture into mash land, and this particular time, we came up with a fantastic combination, that even won me over....

Flavorful, Buttered Corn On The Cob

Flavorful, Buttered Corn On The Cob

we were in london this past weekend, for an extensive tour of great food in buzzing, eclectic spaces and a couple (okay, a douzen of couple) of beers in various oldschool-shabby to fancy-stylish pubs. london, my food mecca. at one point, we ordered vino to go with our 10 starters (for 4 people): white wine....

Grilled Ricotta Tomato Quesadillas

Grilled Ricotta Tomato Quesadillas

only recently, i’ve discovered a major secret. ground shattering. earth moving. show stopping. bing bang secret. you know, as a food blogger i’m pretty much addicted to good looking food. not limited to the good looks, of course, because the taste is just as important if not more important, sine qua non, so to speak....
