Hello there! A quick peek to wish you all a happy holiday. I developed today’s recipe for my next cookbook, but it didn’t make it into the book since it was very similar to another one. Maybe you’ll be able to guess the book’s title, by the way wink but enough said about it. Come […]
First of all, thank you all for your kind words and recovery wishes. I’m really touched. As my silence here and on social media may tell, I haven’t recovered yet. My shingles is less aggressive now, but still very active. I have been way too nomadic in recent weeks, and noticed that when travelling, my […]
Here is a recipe that I like to make to fill my lunch-boxes. It is very easy to prepare large quantities of it, be it for lunches or weeknight dinners, for a picnic or a potluck. It’s cheap and tasty. I do not cook quinoa often enough, though I like it a lot. The jar […]
Just like Zürich’s hormonal high-schoolers, I went back to the office this week. This time, it feels special. I’m due to finish my PhD within a year and feel like I’m an organic chickpea trapped in a pressure cooker. I’m also celebrating the long-awaited end of a bout of shingles that ate the skin of my […]
I called this smoothie « fond de frigo », which means « bottom of the fridge ». This French idom means, basically, that you make food with whatever leftovers you can find in the fridge. In this case, a wilted half-bulb of fennel, an overripe melon and a piece of ginger that had had better days. Since if was so […]
This is the next episode of our summer Greek culinary saga. This salad is perhaps not traditional at all, or maybe not even Greek. She made me very happy one evening in Athens and that is enough. The menu, which was quite cryptic, only mentioned a « bean salad ». I went for it. I didn’t see […]
Hello everyone ! Let’s move on to our next Greek recipe. Justin and I took a cooking class in Crete, in a lovely open-air kitchen inside an old olive oil press. We found these zucchini fritters delicious, but really not « healthy ». The initial recipe involves eggs and lots of cheese. The eggs are expectedly unnecessary: […]
Hello everyone! I’m about to leave for a 10-day Vipassana meditation retreat, in complete silence (that is, if I recover from the nasty flu I got from my friends). Today’s recipes are both simple and fresh, we have been enjoying them for a while. Beware: If you can’t stand the flavour of green peas, don’t go […]
I was so impatient to tell you all about it! My second cookbook is out today! Just like the first book, I write it together with my friend Louise. For our first book, Poêlées végétariennes, the editor had decided on the topic. Here, we came up with the idea and found the perfect editor to make it come […]
… Hello everyone ! I haven’t published a smoothie recipe in a long while. The truth is, for over a year, I have been faithful to one single smoothie. I had created it for a friend’s good-bye party, as he was leaving Zürich. I liked that smoothie so much that I have made it every morning since then. Of course, with […]
So many first-world problems. I juggle with my PhD, with writing and photographing a cookbook – and this blog. It is sometimes hectic and I feel like I am playing it by ear most of the times. Plus, this mysoginistic, climate-change-denier who became president of the United States. I recently got an invoice of 500 euros for a routine check-up at […]
I had a hard time posting this recipe. When the smell of this curry fills the house, I forget everything else. I eventually managed to snap a picture on my phone with one hand, holding an impatient and hungry Justin back with the other hand.
This is a non-recipe recipe. I never thought of sharing it with you before. These ground flax seeds are part of the decor, so much so that one forgets that they exist. It would feel like giving you a recipe for cooking rice!
Happy New Year everyone ! Who hasn’t heard of golden milk? Sometimes called turmeric latte, it is known as Kurkuma latte where I live. This « detox » turmeric drink, with its Ayurvedic roots, is like a liquid version of the avocado toast: The hipster sensation that took over the world and Instagram. Minus the ecological disaster.
