Eat and travel. The biggest pleasures in life! I’m sure that if you are reading this blog you agree with us. Maybe, like us, you live for those glorious moments in life when you discover a lovely restaurant in a gorgeous setting, you taste a new flavour for the first time… Sometimes the food is outstanding, others it’s the moment, the company and the location. So before leaving for our next trip this Thursday, we’ve decided to reminisce about the best food we’ve ever eaten abroad:
Last week we had the pleasure of collaborating with Callwey’s blog. The amazing coffee-table-books editorial asked us if we could prepare a nice recipe to share with their readers. And we decided to recreate a delicious Italian staple: Calzoni alla Vicentina. We made them from scratch, dough included! So head over to Callwey’s blog, if you’d like to learn how to prepare these simple yet scrumptious treats that will make your stomachs jump with joy!
We would love to tell you that we had planned a visit to this little market because we know all the best food markets in London, but the truth is that we stumbled upon its lovely colourful stalls during a random walk. But aren’t these surprising findings the best moments while travelling?
We don’t want to be that kind of people who visit a place for the first time and immediately become experts. Nop. That’s not us. But in our very first visit to Stockholm we ate the best meatballs that the city has to offer. We are not exaggerating, we really found the best meatballs. After researching for a while, reading some guides and browsing Twitter (that’s today’s scientific research) we discovered this small place where we realized that IKEA has been fooling us this whole time. Those things you eat when you spend your Saturday buying unnecessary kitchen accessories and cool napkins are not Swedish meatballs.
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?
Seville has a truly unique atmosphere and personality. To enjoy its spirit to the fullest, there is no better way than discovering new places to grab a bite and have some drinks with friends. Because that’s one of the best things about Seville: no matter how hard life is, there is always a time and place for a lively conversation paired with tapas. Today we want to share with you the ultimate list to eat like and with locals in Seville.
We first visited this restaurant because we wanted to try their burgers. And they were gooood. The tartufo burger wass superb. But that day we didn’t have our camera with us so we came back…
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 …
We’re back from our holidays in Ibiza. That’s sad. Sigh! But we are full of energy and have lots of things to share with you, so this blog is coming back to its normal schedule! Let’s start with one of the highlights of our trip: a hidden restaurant in a tiny cave called Cala des Moltons. We were exploring the North of the island when we found this little foodie paradise.
For our last installment of our Gourmet Marylebone Series we wanted to share with you something very special: a vintage English afternoon tea. Inspired by the 40’s and 50 ‘s, the Reform Social grill offers a charming experience that includes delicate mismatched china, the finest fancies, classic finger sandwiches and sophisticated Bellinis.
