Coconut_Chocolate_Bars_4

Coconut chocolate bars

The combination of coconut and dark chocolate is one of our favourites. It’s quite strong but it’s oh so delicious! We were determined to develop our very own coconut and dark chocolate bars but we couldn’t get them right. I think it has taken more than a year to make this recipe perfect, but finally, here it is: our homemade Bounty bars!

Who doesn’t love Greek food? It’s simple, full of delicious flavours and as healthy as Mediterranean diet gets. Today we bring you our take on melitzanosalata, the delicious aubergine dip that can and will cheer up your dinners. It’s ridiculously easy to prepare, honestly, we don’t know if this counts as a recipe!

Spanish menu

As an expat, you miss your country. And, usually, food is what you miss the most. Oh, well, there is family too. And friends. But it’s mostly the food. So more often than not, we cook traditional recipes to feel at home. Today’s menu can’t get more traditional or more Spanish. Tortilla de patatas is the most famous tapa or pincho in Spain.

Taberna Los Gallos, Madrid

Madrid has lots of wonderful restaurants. Every month new establishments open their doors and, inevitably, others say their goodbyes. However, good traditional Spanish food with a twist, great service and lovely decor are the elements that guarantee success. Taberna los Gallos knows it and that’s exactly what they offer. 

Corte_del_Lampone_1

La Corte del Lampone, Cortina d’Ampezzo

First post of the year! Food related, obviously. Today we wanted to share with you the first of the articles that we are going to dedicate to our Winter getaway in Cortina d’Ampezzo. With our trip to Spain and the holidays in between we still hadn’t had the time to sort all the pictures and memories! Cortina d’Ampezzo is a little village located in a beautiful valley in the Dolomites. We spent a few wonderful days of long, frosty morning walks, afternoons at the spa and incredible dinners at La Corte del Lampone, the restaurant of the Rosapetra Spa Resort, the hotel we chose for our stay. As you can imagine we had a fantastic time… and beyond delicious dinners. That’s why we’ve decided to start this little Cortina special with the restaurant that made us so very happy and was one of the highlights of our trip.

2015 Recipe recap

It’s that time of the year again.  The moment we look back and remember… what we’ve eaten and cooked! To be honest we are quite impressed by the number of recipes that we’ve managed to publish here! It’s been an hectic year with lots of work, but most of our Sundays were spent in the kitchen, trying new recipes. 2015 was the year of healthy cooking. Yes, we have shared with you a surprisingly high number of low carb, full of veggies, yet delicious dishes. But we’ve also had time to induldge… you know, just to find the right balance ;) Here you have our 2015 recipe recap! And it’s a long one!

Mushroom_Toast_1

Mushroom and mountain cheese toast

This weekend we’ve tried to recreate one of the delicious open faced sandwiches that we ate in September at Almanak, a fantastic restaurant in Copenhagen. We loved the combination of the mushrooms, the cheese and the garlic. So seasonal and comforting. While the result wasn’t exactly the same, it was still delicious. So here you have the recipe, if case you’d like to try it at home…

Cocas

I know, I know, it’s Tuesday. But yesterday we couldn’t post. We worked from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. non stop! So here you have this week’s mmm… Monday on a Tuesday! Cocas are a typical Majorcan dish that we love. María, the chef of Ca Na Toneta introduced us to the simple yet full of flavour Cocas in the wonderful catering that she prepared for our wedding two years ago. Since then it has become one of our favourite appetizers.
