I have a lot of tiny dark purple figs on my tree right now.
Think there will be enough figs left to make a glass of jam too.
when I were in Copenhagen.
It is season for cod roe, yum, and it looks like the green leaves (wikipedia tells me they could be called wood sorrel in English) are used very much these days to give taste to salads and sauces a.o.
and much too much cake. The one above was a delicious raspberries pie.
Above you see the result of my latest food experiment. Almonds covered with white chocolate (mixed with a bit of grated lemon zest) and rolled in licorice root powder. They were very nice. I made them for one of the Christmas days, so it is already quite some time ago. Hmm, time to think up new food experiments as it makes cooking more fun, I think.
More experiments starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.
These are shots from our local ham (jamonería) bar. Here you can get nice tapas of slices of ham or cheese with either wine or beer. That’s it.
Enjoy the weekend.
is not only on Fridays in our house. The Dorada (gilt-head bream) is our favorite, and baked in salt is the best.
Yesterday I had a very quiet day … most of it in bed trying to get rid of a really irritating cold my husband had managed to pass on to me. So I spent time surfing with my new tablet and listening to some really inspiring TED talks too.
Below is one of the ones I listened to: the NY chef Dan Barber on How I fell in love with a fish. He is talking about the Dorada. And not just any Dorada. Have a watch/listen. It’s really good.
and no big plans or tasks … so far.
