I’m not really a fan of puree. In my years of working in a hospital the classical side dish was often puree, every day a different color. It’s possible that in the future this way of preparing food will have to become my favorite, but as long as I have teeth I prefer to use … More Puree?
Iris gave me a few years ago a special ‘smoke ‘barbecue, which I never used because I’m not a ‘fire’ person. To smoke your own fish seems of course a delicious idea. In one of the recent magazines of Libelle-lekker.be I read this recipe of smoked fish in the oven, on pine cones. Let’s try. … More How to smoke salmon in the oven?
After our first truffle hunting I learned that the best way to store the truffle (fresh truffle can be stored for maximum a week) is in a glass recipient with a perfect lid together with rice, barley or spelt in the fridge.

The recipe can be prepared without carbohydrates, but in this colder season they can give … More Yes, a new delicious magazine in our brand new mail box 😉
‘My’ supermarket is having a complete make-over. This week ‘my’ fishmonger is temporarely gone and the fish is prepacked and installed in fridges. It looks less attractive, but still super fresh and really clean. So I buy cod filet for today, vacuum packed shells for tomorrow and deepfrozen sea fruit for Iris’ top recipe (which … More Cod in a crispy coat
Today I did my shopping for the following days, and a lovely fish (doesn’ look that lovely, but is delicious) is the most important ingredient. I was lucky to find 500 grams of white sweet potatoes.

Still to many fresh ingredients in the fridge, so no need to discuss the menu, pizza today!!
