Matcha Affogato

July 14, 2017

It’s probably needless to say, but I get very excited about food.  My mind predominantly revolves around it, and when I dedicated two full weeks to recipe testing for the site at the end of June, I was consumed by it more than usual.  It was a really fun and rewarding period, and I was amazed by the amount of creative thoughts that flowed into my brain at all hours of the day (and night), giving light to some pretty delicious recipes, including these amazing matcha affogati.  IMG_5084 Continue Reading…

Asparagus Bygotto + Green Dream Sauce

July 7, 2017

This time last year I was interning in the wonderful Pollen + Grace kitchen.  Each day was spent cooking, cutting and packaging the vibrant and wholesome food that goes into each P&G box and snack.  Apart from missing all of the raw brownie ends and banana bread cut offs that I would stuff myself with on a daily basis, what I miss the most are the group lunches.  Come 1 o’clock or so, we would push together a few tables and fill our plates with all of the delicious bits and dressings that hadn’t made it to the lunch boxes that day.  On my last week of work, the head chef Virginia whipped up an incredible risotto made with brown rice, leeks and mushrooms. Yes, brown rice! It was so insanely creamy and I was completely blown away.  This super-green bygotto is my take on the arborio-less risotto, and is comfort food at its finest.

French Toast with White Chocolate and Maple Berries

June 30, 2017

I often get a couple looks of disapproval when I mention preferring french toast to pancakes, waffles or any other breakfast food really. Whether it has to do with my obsession with anything bread-based, my inability to successfully flip pancakes or whether I actually prefer the taste of them, all I know is that my love for french toast has been growing steadily for as long as I can remember. My weekday version of french toast includes a couple slices of bread, some banana and milk, and maple syrup. My weekend version on the other hand, is this queen of a dish, and includes vegan white chocolate sauce and maple lemon berries. Heaven in a dish my friends!

Summer Bruschette with Lemon Oil

June 16, 2017

My eating philosophy throughout the summer months usually goes along the lines of “simple is best”. As much as I love spending a good while in the kitchen, nothing compares to the quick and cold delicious lunches that come together during the summer. Bruschette were the quintessential summer dish in my house growing up and they would be a starter or main depending on how lazy we were feeling and how many toppings we could come up with.  These summer bruschette are bursting with the flavours and vibrancy of a spring that has just come to a close. Fresh peas, asparagus, roasted garlic, curly-leaf parsley and homemade lemon oil come together to form freshest bite you’ll taste this month. I know that’s a big claim considering the amount of juicy and refreshing produce that is out on the market around now, but fresh crisp greens, citrus and sourdough don’t lie…

Roasted Pepper Sunshine Salad

May 30, 2017

It’s amazing how one food or flavour can take you back to a really specific moment in time. Everything about this dish, its taste, its smell and its vibrancy, takes me back to warm summer evenings in our terrace in Rome.  The smell of roasted peppers would linger in our kitchen for hours. Mom would then mix them with tuna, day-old bread, capers and olives and that sweet smell would be the sign of the lunch or dinner to come for a couple of days.IMG_3912 Continue Reading…

Spiced Apricot Galettes

May 16, 2017

Every day this month I have woken up thinking “oh no! It’s already the X of May”. I just cannot comprehend how this year has passed so quickly. Although I’m sad time is passing and that it will be the end of July before I know it, meaning that I have to leave the city that has given me so much joy for the past year, those worrisome feelings have been balanced out by the joy of feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin and excitement for a sunny June and July. Although I have been warned that summers in Copenhagen tend to not stay warm for long, this past weekend left me hot and craving all things peachy and juicy. When the rain rolled back around on Monday, I ran to my corner store, picked up the brightest apricots I could find, ate half straight out my bag, and baked the rest in rye galettes. Sweet, juicy and sunny, what’s not to love?
