• Winter Chicken Stew

    What a better season than winter to cook stews? I enjoy to cook them during cold days, even more when it is rainning outside. This is the top comfort food: it heat the kitchen, smells good and taste good! Here is my recipe for a delicious Chicken Stew with Cabbage… For the white wine that you will need for the recipe, I suggest you to use one that you also enjoy to drink with your meal. If you don’t want to use wine, you can also use 1 tablespoon cider vinegar mixed with water (this is what I did the last time I cooked it). Note: This recipe is for…

  • Salad & Potatoes Hotpot

    Until October 2020, I never cooked salad before but always ate it cold and raw. Let me tell you that I have missed something and here is my recipe for Salad & Potatoes Hotpot! You can replace the chicken ham by lardons for more taste or even pine nuts if you prefer a vegetarian version.

  • Home-made Burgers

    Everybody knows how to make a burger, but do you know how to make the bread? Here is the perfect recipe to prepare home-made Burgers including bread! On my pictures, I have prepared the dough for 4 burgers but since we were 2 people eating the other ingredients shown are for 2 people. Because of this, you may see a difference between the picture and the ingredients I wrote for the recipe for 4 burgers.

  • Mexican Tortillas

    Want to cook home-made Mexican tortillas including the dough? Here is my recipe for a tasty tortilla a bit different from the original one. If we were not in quarantine when I made them, I would have probably changed a few things for the garnish but here, I did it with what I had at home. I have read 15-20 different recipes in french, english and spanish to compare the different ways to create and cook the dough, quantities, proportions of liquid and solid, cooking time, techniques… I finally made a mix getting inspired by my readings and what I thought would be good for me. Mexicans use masa harina…

  • Salmon Dim Sum & Zucchinis

    I never made Dim Sum before, this was the very first time I tried to make some. Already tasted and ate some in restaurants or even at home with delivery, but, creating those chinese raviolis was really exciting and not complicated at all! Here is my recipe with salmon and zucchinis… Since I didn’t have fresh salmon but only frozen one I cooked it a little bit before adding it to the ravioli, but if you can, use some fresh one and add it fresh in the ravioli. Here, the recipe is for 2 people, means 8 raviolis each. Ingredients for 2 people: 70 g rice flour 30 g corn…
