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

I've been making a mess in the kitchen all weekend!

Friday night I made my hubby warm spinach salad, pasta w/ lemon cream sauce and garlic chicken (not pictured...this was the only thing that actually did not turn out as good as I thought it would, although my darling husband claimed otherwise!), and from Jack's website, gebrante creme (hope I spelled it right). It was sooo yummy and much easier to make than I thought it would be!

Tonight I tried my hand at spitzbueben; I LOVE these cookies! Unfortunately I have NO cookie cutters so I had to cut the holes on the tops by hand...I've only done half the dough, going to do the rest tomorrow (for the big circles I just used the top of an empty baby food jar...worked pretty well)

You know where to get cookie cutters from, don't you?
The mini-sized ones are just perfect for Spitzbuben. The Swiss glossy magazine, Annabelle, used my idea to make "hot" Spitzbuben with the mini dress and mini shoe a couple of years ago.

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

1. The simplest, easiest comfort food is half-boiled eggs (8 minutes dunked in hot water, not boiled) served with ground white pepper and soy sauce.
2. Steamed glutinous rice with chicken and mushrooms.
3. Apple pie with a crunchy, chewy crust.

Yeah, something like that. Methinks it was Scandinavian apple pie without a base. The recipe is from fxcuisine.com. I love the topping.

Argus I am afraid the pic of the kopi-o and kaya toast was taken by a friend on a trip back home to Singers......I will be attempting to make my own kaya though once I have settled in my new place.....and will post a pic here.......

Another classic favourite of mine from Malaysia - Penang Assam Laksa

Fish broth flavoured with tamarind, chillies, lemongrass, prawn paste and other spices; topped with daun kesom, red onions and pineapple. A fiery, potent & pungent combination. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Are you planning to make kaya (Malaysian egg-coconut-milk jam) the old, slow way or the modern, quick way?

I made it only twice here the easy way.

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

Presentation is lacking, but this is a take on chillies rellenos with rice. Usually you get poblano peppers with skins removed and seeds removed, stuffed with queso fresco and maybe monterrey jack or quesadilla cheese, cover in batter and deep fry. Serve with rice and salsa. A yummy dish. But frying is a mystery to me. And I don't need to be frying all that much.

So what I do instead is to roast and skin peppers, remove seeds and ribs and open them up, and layer them in a cassarole with rice (mixed with onions, garlic, tomatillos and spices like a pilaf), cheese and possibly chorizo or ground meat. Since I've discovered poblanos, chorizo and queso blanco at el Maiz in Zurich, I'm a happy camper.

Unfortunately the layers collapsed in the dish.

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

And this was dinner... it's a variant on a coca, a Catalan pastry (at least I think it's Catalan - we had it in Barccelona), but i made it in my pizza pan. This one has a simple pizza like dough, and has roasted eggplant and green, red and yellow peppers, olives, anchovies, garlic and olive oil. Tomatoes on the bottom and I added a little spicy ajvar (it's a paste of peppers, eggplant and oil). not bad, if a little brown... still playing with the oven here. Tomorrow, I'm making pizza with the leftover dough.

Coca di pan.....yes, this is Catalan. They do savoury and even sweet variants with sugar and pine-nut topping. Yummy!!
