Picnic with friends by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

sharing joy, food and friendship is such a pleasure in summer. Did you know that it’s a quite old idea to enjoy a meal outside? People did this already in the classical era!

Fairytale Forest Picnic by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

Picnic with friends in clearing amidst a forest – bread and tomatoes, wine and coffee, cake and fruits are plentiful and delicious. The animals are a bit curious to overhear what’s discussed but they are also busy with their own life.

Violets, Capers & Daisy & Chamomile // Edible Flowers by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

Violets can be preserved with sugar and they look indeed delicious on these elaborate pieces of patisserie in French cafés.
The first time I saw the fragile beauty of flowers of capers I was surprised that their buds are actually an essential ingredient for penne alla putanesca!

Roses and Elderflower potions // Edible Flowers by Mira Paradies

DE

I love the beauty of elderflowers and roses – and it's so tempting to preserve their scent by drying the colorful petals or cooking the latter to obtain a fragrant syrup.

Thai Papaya Salad – Beans around the world by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

I love everything about Papaya Salad – it’s fresh, spicy, colorful, sweet and rich in flavour. An all time favourite with sticky rice and something from the grill. The beans add some nice green crispy twist to it!

Global Cuisine – Eton Mess by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

A sweet dream in pink, red and white and very simple to make – it just hast to be spring when the strawberries are full of flavour. Legend has it that this desert was invented in Eton where a small shop offered it to the students from 1930 onwards. I like that it doesn’t require any skills, just make a nice mess and indulge!

Tostada con tomate by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

One of the most convincing combinations of simplicity and tastefulness is the Spanish version of breakfast: toasted bread, soaked with olive oil and topped with fresh tomato puree + salt is the perfect way to begin a day. It has everything: crunchy, warm, fruity, fresh and healthy – and with an extra slice of jamon iberico it is a delicacy.

Global Cuisine – Kerala style Tomato Curry by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

I am very fond of South Indian cooking! It has such a great variety, many different vegetables are used, as well as many spices – and most of all because it is cooked with coconut oil and freshly grated coconut. So here is one of my favorite curries, acutally very simple to make and sooo tasty.

food fave: Brown Cherry Betty by Mira Paradies

DE

Read More...

This cake is a very fond memory of mine and it is also a local speciality from where I grew up, in the south west of Germany. I tried to translate its name „Kirschplotzer“ and I hope it conveys what it is: a juicy fruitiness combined with cloves and cinnamon that add a mysterious hint of christmas to the late spring season when cherries are abundant and everyone who owns a tree is trying to pack as many as possible into this wonderful recipe – I hope someone tries to bake it!
