IT'S ALL GREEK TO ME! Corfu - a Greek island I know from Gerald Durrel books - has been a place i've longed to visit since I was a kid. Maybe someday I will be able to see the island in life, but it remains quite vivid in my imagination. Here, i've tried to illustrate the Koum Kouat liqueur of Corfu. "It is a pleasant liqueur made from kumquat fruits, with an aroma and taste that resemble oranges and strawberries and is exclusively produced on the island of Corfu." Though I haven't tasted it ... I can imagine being enveloped in flavours, fragrances, and colours of this magical island!
When I read the topic „my happy meal” for the play along, I had this dish in my head immediately. It is very seasonal as blood oranges are only available here for about two months. So in early February I ordered blood oranges, pink grapefruits and kumquats as well. On a whim I threw them together and it has become a treat I look forward to every delivery (and now the next ten months). Grapefruits, blood oranges and kumquats are complimenting each other’s taste. Add some walnuts and a dollop of greek yoghurt and you have a firework of sweet, tangy, a little bit bitter, crunch and creaminess. Besides the awesome taste I enjoy turning the brightly colored fruits into this dessert so much that after cutting, peeling and filleting I am always smiling, happy and a little high on colors, textures and aromas.
Another recipe given to me, this time by my cousin Judith. To say they are addictive is not an over statement. Everyone who has tried these has been wowed by their gooey chocolatey-ness. They are less cakey than some brownies and with a few twists like adding nuts or orange zest you can mix them up a bit. Do enjoy! They are irresistible.
Spice it up - this spicy, hot fruit drink is my go to whenever a sore throat is approaching. It is very spicy, but delicious and feels like a comfy scarf from the inside. It calms the pain in my throat and makes me very warm. Perfect to snuggle on the couch and recover.
This refreshingly simple citrus salad features grapefruit and oranges topped with a tangy vinaigrette.You can stack the citrus slices with fresh mozzarella and basil on individual plates or in one big platter. It makes a beautiful presentation and can be eaten with salmon or to offset the richness of pasta.
