Sicilian Caponata

Sicilian Caponata

Sicilian Caponata is something like the better ratatouille (sorry, Frenchies). It’s more clever and more versatile at once. I love that it’s also eaten and enjoyed cold and on its own, not just as a side. I wish i could grow all the vegs that go into it in my own backyard. Those super pretty squashes, the...

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…

Chococo Popsicles

Chococo Popsicles

Summer isn’t all but gone yet – despite the much chillier mornings and nights – but i’m already craving darker, moodier, more comfort oriented foods. If only for the looks. And what better to fulfill this mood than dark, intense, naughty chocolate? [gap height=”20″]

World’s Best Focaccia

World’s Best Focaccia

Did you spy the label “best in class” this recipe has been filed under…? Because this definitely is, best in class. It’s the best focaccia i ever made. Maybe i’ve eaten a couple ones that were a teensy bit better yet? But not many. either way, this is close to perfect. Focaccia heaven! And, as...

Macaron Bread with Raspberries and Basil

Macaron Bread with Raspberries and Basil

This recipe by sneh from Cook Republic is basically it. Not really that much more to add. It’s a fun thing to play with the term (and flavors of) “macaron”, because i’d usually never try to make these. but turned into a macaraon like bread (or cake, much rather), I’m game! Sneh recommends you eat it toasted...

Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

The current heat wave… Makes me slightly dizzy. I’m constantly dreaming of ways to cool me down; inlcuding a pool to dip my feet in (at work), ice creams for breakfast, or maybe even just a tiny, chilly breeze at night to move through my bedroom? No such thing though. I’m just glad it’s the...

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

I’m maybe the biggest fan of chilled soups there is. Why not? They’re (often) easy to make, flavorful, healthy, refreshing… And if you have only some imagination, it’s pretty a versatile way to feed people during the warmer months. And here’s another one: a gorgeous roasted Gazpacho with sourdough bread. Wes, it’s as good as...

F&F Behind The Scenes

F&F Behind The Scenes

  Update! Since this post from last summer – where the F&F empire *chuckle* was documented in pictures and even a little trailer – offers a pretty good view of F&F and my work behind the scenes, I figured you might like to see it gain. What with the new and shiny (or so I’d like...

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Whenever there’s a chance to visit a farmer’s or flower market, I’m game. I like the hustle and bustle of the wee hours, the stalls being set up, people chatting and exchanging a few words with the cheese supplier of their choice. It’s time standing still. It’s like a mini vacation in an otherwise busy week....
