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

Made it yesterday, ready to enjoy over the weekend (starting now ): it's a cute little cream cheese pudding tart with caramel coating. Really nice!

Adding link to the recipe in case anyone is interested

This video sure forces you to "Entschleunigen" (decelerate)

Looks great, enjoy! If someone wants to catch me: Cheesecake is the bait.
What was added to the caramel at the very end? There was no text with it. Butter?

I did wonder how that would taste with a little salt in the caramel?

I know what you mean with decelerating 😂

She added gelatin to the caramel. If you don’t, the caramel will have half melted out of the cake the following day, but with the tiny bit of gelatin, it keeps it in place. Since I don’t eat pork, I used agar-agar and it worked perfectly fine.

I think salt always goes well with caramel but Japanese recipes are never overly sweet so this one was perfect without it.

The kitchen witch doing her worst :P

In the making ......
BBQ Sauce, Ghee, light and red crema d'aceto and whilst I am in the kitchen anyway I will work some wild garlic into some yummy things to keep

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

Here are some of the things I did over Easter weekend:

1. Banana mascarpone cream tart (we ate it half frozen to make it ice cream like)

2. Vegan banana bread with chocolate chips and pecans

3. Torta Pasqualina! (from scratch incl. the dough, first time and pleasantly surprised how easy it was )

4. Strawberry Cheesecake with strawberry compote and edible gold flakes from Japan

The banana cream tart looks really good. Do you mind sharing the recipe that you followed?

Sure, here's the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5KE...D93b4&index=39

However, as I love a good digestive cookie tart base, I made mine a bit differently from hers. I used 310g digestive cookies and 110g melted butter.

My tart form is 22cm, so you get some good filling left overs, which I froze in glass containers. Then, on another night, I got a few of my chocolate chip nutella cookies dough out (I make extra and freeze them so we can have freshly baked ones whenever), baked the cookies and had it with the banana mascarpone cream (like ice cream), so good! Or, just have it with some fruits!

Thanks!

Yes! I actually used the same base as when I made banoffee pie a few weeks ago. The recipe said "best to finish in one go". We had another couple over for dinner. The girlfriend doesn't have the biggest sweet tooth so had one slice. We finished the remaining whole thing among 3 people!

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

Approaching our Black Forest turnoff yesterday, snagged a kg of asparagus (12 euros) and some strawberries. The first lesson from my MIL (aka The White Tornado, both for her zest for life and her mane of beautiful snow white hair) years ago was how to prepare the asparagus...starting with, "Pink tips are not permissible!" It's an art to peel just enough off to remove the scales without wasting anything. The resulting clean stalks are stored cold, wrapped in wet linen, then steamed on their own skins for more flavour. I make hollandaise, but not the old-fashioned way my grandmother taught me as a child...I use Julia Child's method, updated with a stick blender and Maldon salt. Yum.

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

Because lately we are sadly lacking Tom's sunny environs, soup is a necessity here in Siberia. This red bell pepper/carrot soup with frischkaese hits the spot. It's a gorgeous summery colour and a doddle to make. You can easily double or triple the recipe--this one-bell version serves 3 or 4 nicely. The cheese gives it tang, the carrots contribute just the right amount of sweetness. The pepper and green Tabasco (jalapeno) make it zing. You can use whatever cheese is left over by thinning with milk for a drizzle. Top with fresh herbs.

Saute 2 medium carrots and 1 small onion in a knob of butter (or use EVOO and adjust your halo accordingly). Add one red (or orange) chopped bell pepper and about 400 ml chicken or vegetable broth. Simmer with lid mostly on for 45 mins. Stick blend (with what the Austrians picturesquely call a Stabmixer), adding 100g frischkaese as you go (Philly, or whatever tangy smooth equivalent you have--careful you don't use cottage cheese). Season with nutmeg, Tabasco, or whatever else you think tasty. Thin with more broth until you get the thickness you like. Back in the Stone Age when we gave things we used to call Dinner Parties, this was a popular starter.Name:  IMG_0100.JPG

Moussaka!! Half aubergine (for me), half potato (for OH). A warm dinner after a beautiful day of rain, cold, sun, more sun, and more cold. This is crazy.Name:  IMG_0101.JPG

Not a huge fan of Moussaka, due to the Béchamelsauce.

But still jealously admiring your flowers

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

After last night's deluge, I didn't expect to find anything worth having in the garden, but when inspecting the iris that are just starting to open, I noticed that the basil has continued to grow, even with 5C nights. I put it to its best and highest use: pesto. Pesto is summer to me. Last year I brought a pound of pine nuts back from the US so I didn't have to contemplate those tiny sorry ludicrously expensive packets in SPAR. As soon as I finished the pesto, the sun came out, as if to bless the proceedings.
