Ja, ja. What goes into the gravy, Bertrand?
It looks so delicious I could eat two plates of it.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Haven't done this in a while.
1. How about a gander at my sorry-@ssed first attempt at making Zopf? I dropped the dough in a cake tin as I wanted the shape to be quite uniform and 'cut-able'.
2. 'My Kitchen' on Stampfenbachstrasse in Zurich serves very good chicken satay, but with a bit of effort you can make it yourself. (I dispensed with the skewers and grilled 'em in the oven. Never trust any peanut sauce recipe that lists peanut butter among its ingredients. Ask me if you want an authentic but simple one.)
3. Summer is around the corner (don't roll your eyes at the clouds and drizzle) and glass noodle salad days are here again.

Here we go....

Eggs in Sauce

1/2 litre of water
1 soup spoon of butter, white flour
1/3 of a chicken bouillon cube
salt, pepper
parsley
eggs....


That's my mum's way of making it, I learned to cook by watching my mum......

Begin by doing a "roux blanc" : put a soup spoon of butter to warm and add a soup spoon of white floor, mixing it well. Don't let it brown.
put it out of the fire and add 1/2 liter of cold water, mixing it until you've got a nice sauce. It has to be not too liquid. (you don't have to add the whole water if you don't need it)

Put the sauce on the fire again and add some dry white wine (i personally add 1/3 of a chicken bouillon cube), until you've got a sauce like you want -more or less liquid.

Add salt, pepper as you like it.

At the end, add your sliced eggs, and let the whole thing warming up.

Put some parsley and serve.

Here you go. This is from a Malaysian blogger acquaintance who lives in northern Europe. For her other recipes, check out www.saltnturmeric.com
(my notes in italics)

Peanut Sauce

12oz (340g) dry-roasted peanuts (I use store bought) (another Malay friend says to pan-fry peanuts yourself with their skins on and use skins and all for a sweeter, more aromatic flavour)
1 1/2 cups water
1/8 cup sambal oelek (less if you don't like it too spicy) or pureed red chillies
2oz (55g) palm sugar (sub: dark brown sugar)
salt

1. Grind the peanuts in a food processor (or crush them with mortar and pestle or in a plastic bag with the side of a wine bottle). Longer if you want finer peanuts.

2. In a large pot, boil the water, sambal oelek, palm sugar and ground peanut. Stir continuously.

3. Once its boiled, turn down heat and let it simmer. Add salt and taste. Give a good stir every 15-20min. This might take a very long time. It took me between 2-2.5hrs to get the right consistency. The peanut and water should combine nicely.

The recipe will give you a lot of peanut sauce. Just freeze the amount that you are not using for later. Besides ketupat (wrapped rice cake), you can also enjoy peanut sauce with satay or bread or even crackers.


(What I did for extra flavour is to add the marinade left over from marinating chicken satay into the peanut sauce while it was being cooked. Mine was done faster as I added less water.)

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Looks yummy, I have to try it. I love boiled eggs. What about the potatoes recipe. They don't look like regular roasted potatoes. Is there any special way of making them? Do you add pieces of bacon?
