Banana bread is perfect for long train trips, long hours at the office and long weekends. It’s moist, it’s delicious and has fruit on it, which obviously means it’s light and healthy (it’s not, but let’s pretend). This recipe can’t be easier so we dare you to bake it just once. We’re sure you won’t be able to resist to bake it at least once a week! Continue reading
These gyozas are the best gyozas we’ve ever eaten. And oddly enough we found them in a small japanese restauran in Seville. While Seville is famous because of its traditional Spanish cuisine and, of course, tapas, during the last five years the city has developed a nice taste for international menus. Being La Alameda Seville’s hippest district, there was no better location for Matsuri, a sophisticated yet cosy Japanese restaurant (where you can eat these amazing gyozas). Continue reading
This weekend has been all about nesting and, even though we wanted to indulge into all the junk food in the world, we have managed to stay quite healthy-ish (apart from the occasional chocolate debacle on Sunday). However, we’ve still had some delicious dishes on our table. This wonderful warm salad feels like a treat although is full of vitamins, proteins and nutrients. It’s our take on one of Jamie Oliver’s recipes from this book. Our version is a little bit lighter than the original because we have avoided the bread and the soured cream and have added a little bit of protein in the form of crispy grilled chicken. Here you have the recipe…
We discovered Gorm’s a while ago while strolling around Torvehallerne. The pizzas looked delicious: super thin crust and fresh natural toppings. So last Satuday we were delighted to bump into their restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen, Nyhavn. In the middle of a little snow storm, the warm candle light, the scent of oregano and the prospect of a nice glass of rosé seemed heaven on Earth. Continue reading
A couple of months ago we bought the famous healthy recipe book by the Hemsley sisters, The art of eating well, and since then we have tried some of their recipes in an attempt to eat more greens and step up our healthy lifestyle game. Well, the recipes are surprisingly good! They cauliflower crust pizza has become our absolute favourite dinner treat and the courgetti puttanesca are simply amazing. We are not going to lie: real pasta and cheesy pizza are better. But these options are healthier and they taste remarkably good as well. So, since it’s all about balance… why not including these better for you versions in your weekly menu? And then you can have chocolate for pudding. That’s what balanced diet means, right?
We had read about Bosco de Lobos in a couple of blogs and magazines. We were initially attracted to it by its beautiful decor and all the fuzz that it had created in Madrid’s gastro scene, but to be honest we doubted about its cuisine. You know the drill: new fancy resturant, with a focus on design, lots of shots in all the right Instagram accounts, international vibes… We actually expected a nice but not impressive meal. Well, we, foodie snobs sometimes, we were totally wrong. The food was utterly delicious. So much as to come back twice in a couple of weeks.
Good morning! We are back in Germany, back to work and back to our normal schedule. But before moving forward to 2015, we wanted to share with you a little recap of the recipes posted in The slow pace during 2014. Mmm… Monday! is one of our favourite sections and remembering our experiments in the kitchen has been quite fun… and surprising! I thought we were bakers, not cookers… but it turns out it’s the other way round! We have baked less and cooked more. Do you want to have a look at our very own cookbook? Continue reading
Here we are: the last mmm… Monday of the year! Today we go back to London, to Kingly Court in particular, which has become the place to go for a fun bite. Several new restaurants have joined forces to create a new foodie spot in the heart of London. We followed Rosie’s recommendation and had lunch at Señor Ceviche.
I’ve always been afraid of baking cinnamon rolls. I know, it’s stupid, but I always thought it was something complicated, sticky and doomed to failure. But it turned out to be quite easy! While I still want to improve the recipe and I know I need more practise, I was quite happy with the result. Continue reading for a foolproof cinnamon roll recipe!
