mmm… Monday! Orecchiette with home made tomato sauce and sopressa vicentina

18 Aug

orecchiette_with_sopressa_3This is the kind of recipe we usually prepare (or should we say improvise?) during a lazy rainy Sunday. You will need just a few basic ingredients and no measures, no rush…basically no rules. Just a little bit of nice music while you prepare it and lots of love for home made slow cooked food.

mmm… Monday! Bar El Tomate, Madrid

11 Aug

restaurante_tomate_1
When we visit Madrid we always meet our friend A. for lunch. She knows the best places to enjoy really (but really) good Spanish food. Last Summer she took us to Mercado de la Reina, which is now one of our favourite spots in Madrid, and this years she introduced us to the wonders of Bar El Tomate. This restaurant is not new, in fact we wanted to try it for a long time. But when we got A’s sign of approval, we knew the lunch was going to be fantastic. Continue reading

Chicken Caesar Cornets_3

We’ve been eating these cornets almost every night since we decided to try the recipe. They are super easy to prepare… and that’s exactly what we want after a long day at the office, a spinning class and a super long phone call with our mothers.  This is more or less a salad in a wrap. So it’s healthy but has that naughty fast food feel to it.

23 Jun

Do you need some ideas for your Summer dinner parties? Here you have a few suggestions rescued from our archives…

1. Roast chicken with lemon and rosemary potatoes: this recipe is light but a has a lovely Sunday family dinner feel to it. Perfect to share with your loved ones. Pair it with chilled white wine.
2. Fancy salad: this is one of the first recipes we published. A succulent salad that mixes Jamón Ibérico and figs: an unexpected sweet and salty combination. Super easy but utterly delicious!
3. Exotic menu: this recipe screams dinner date. It’s a little bit sophisticated but natural and spicy. Indian food meets Mediterranean flavours with a touch of Japanese charm.
4. Mojito fruit salad: Fruit and Mojitos… is that a starter or a dessert? Anyway, it’s refreshing and tempting, just like a swimmingpool on a hot Sumemr day.
5. Burger all’amatriciana: Summer is the time for barbecues and this recipe can be a game changer. Roasted tomatoes and pancetta as a condiment. Need I say more?
6. A different chicken salad: marinated chicken, roasted green beans and a little bit of goat cheese. Healthy and full of flavour to say the least!
7. The best salad ever: no, we’re not exaggerating. This is the best salad ever.
