Chanterelles and Chèvre Pizza

A couple of weeks ago my friend Marion gave me a bag of chanterelles and I was thrilled! I thought to myself- I´ve just had some risotto porcini the other day, already made my yearly chanterelle stew , don’t feel like fussing with the process of pickling, but I have to do something super yummy with them!;-)_MG_9647.jpg  Continue reading

London 2016

I´m in London for 4 days again after a very busy week and it´s great fun, although British winters are what they are- wet, windy and grey. But God, do I love this city! So much choice in terms of things to do, food to eat and people to talk to! So cosmopolitan, I feel so good amidst all these nationalities, so at ease with their politeness, their inclusion and their diversity. I almost feel like I belong.

Petit Corée

Last weekend´s trip to London had a couple of nice surprises in store for me, including this exquisite culinary experience at The Petit Corée, a Corean French fusion restaurant in West Hampstead.

I was there with Lavinia, her boyfriend and her sister, Natalia, whom I didn´t manage to get a decent picture of, though. IMG_8161

American pancakes

How y’all doing? I´ve had a pretty intense week, worked hard enough, received the wood we´d ordered (and helped carrying it with my frail hands and all!), learned how to do the VAT on my own, baked a cake and I´m still alive! 😉 In between I devoured Christmas magazines, fell asleep watching River and messed up a couple of dates- a trial I thought to be this week turned out is due in January! :-/ Haha! Still, good it wasn´t the other way around..

I love Saturdays, they usually start in bed with coffee and Instagram, then I make some breakfast, if I can be bothered, not a morning person at all, listening to Madeleine Peyroux or Daniela Andrade, to get me in the mood. Today was one of those lucky breakfast days, I´d been fancying some American pancakes for ages now! So easy to make, I don´t know what kept me so long from trying! Do give them a chance! 😉
