My friend gave me a recipe for spicy berry chutney and told me it disappears in minutes after opening the jar. The recipe was in German (a language I only know a few words and how to construct sentences :))) so I tried to translate it and the minute I saw the word blackberries I remembered the marvelous forest path in the mountains that we often go to on the weekends. At this time of the year it is full of blackberries and they are very juicy and fragrant.
So we went berry picking and came back with the most substantial ingredient for that chutney.
I changed the recipe a bit and here it is! It is super easy and very delicious. Enjoy!
It’s the season of cherries, strawberries and fresh salads again! Simply can’t get enough!
And another favourite thing you can buy at the local farmer’s market (if you can’t prepare it yourself) is the juice from elderberry flowers. So refreshing for the hot summer days with ice and a squeeze of lemon!
I know it sounds crazy but this is the most delicious ice cream I have ever tasted!
For a long time I've been dreaming of a kind of salty ice cream. I love yogurt ice cream but most of them are really sweet and not exactly my thing. And then this magical Italian guy appeared in my hometown and started making the most incredible ice cream!
The creaminess of the Pecorino cheese and heavy cream, the crunchy bacon on top (I know, right!?) and a pinch of black pepper takes you taste buds on an unforgettable journey!
The lead role in this recipe is that of Ljutenitsa. It is likely to be found in the pantry throughout the year. Ljutenitsa is one of my favourite things in the Universe.
It's a bit like salsa made with tomatoes, baked red peppers, aubergines (optional), sunflower oil and spices, cooked on the stove or over open fire in the backyard.
A traditional Bulgarian soup made of beans, onions, carrots, olive oil, herbs and spices cooked over low heat in a big clay pot.
The recipe is simple and easy to find on the internet. The magic is that each family has its own unique combination of spices and the recipe is passed on from generation to generation.
In the past it was the bean soup that gathered the family together after a hard day's work on the field.
Nowadays it is often served for dinner and loved by everyone.
