My little volcano – Egg nests in a green crater

Mon petit volcan – Nids d’oeufs en cratère vert I got inspired  by a very popular Turkish dish called “Mthlama” made out of Swiss chards, onions, mint and eggs. I used kale in this dish, simply because I love the texture of a thicker green leaf. Turkish cuisine has combined flavors of [...]

No reblochon, no tartiflette – Fake Tartiflette with asparagus and brie

Pas de reblochon, pas de tartiflette – fausse Tartiflette végétarienne aux brie et asperges If you’ve been to Savoie (Savoy), you’ve probably tasted one of their specialties, la Tartiflette.

Are there still fishes in the sea? – Salmon tart with spinach, onions and dill on a black sesame seeds, chili and herb crust

Y a t-il encore des poissons dans la mer? – Tarte au saumon, épinards, onions et aneth avec pâte au sésame, piment et herbes I love my rectangular molds and think I haven’t used them that much, so I need to place them somewhere I can see them, otherwise I tend to forget I have them. What a shame. [...]
