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

A delicious Sunday breakfast omelette courtesy of GrumpyGrapefruit's Red Leicester cheese and finely chopped onions - recipe from Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights.
Unfortunately, the photo did not do the omelette justice at all

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

May I cheat and post this pic of what I WILL NOT bake, grill, cook, or EVER eat. I grew up in Kentucky, not too far from horse farms and the home of The Kentucky Derby. I will ride them, but I will not eat them!

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

For lunch today: grilled turkey filet, and spicy quinoa, cucumber and tomato salad (recipe from the NYT) - I used the red quinoa from Migros, rather than the "regular" one, and also added a bit of fresh finely chopped mint as well as cilantro. Very refreshing on such a hot day!

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

the quinoa salad looks great. I tried the same recipe last week and ended up with disappointing mush. I guess I added too much water and overcooked the quinoa. Did you soak before you cooked? Yours looks fab! Congrats!

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

Hi Janie! I just rinsed the quinoa beforehand, because the package said it should be "washed", and then cooked (boiled) it for ten minutes (2 parts water to 1 part quinoa). It didn't really look done at that point - it was the first time I had tried it too - but the sprouts had "come out". Then I took it off the hob and let it sit for about 5 minutes, which soaked up the rest of the water that wasn't absorbed yet. Try it again... and good luck!

Like your avatar, Crumbs. I used to be partial to a bit of Battenberg myself. Here's a nice recipe for it:

Was just wondering where Paul the Octopus went.


Wonderful spread! Msolis, what are the golden brown cakes on the right in the bottom pic? They look curiously inviting.

Yes, I think the raised tentacle on the left definitely indicates success for the Berner Young Boys in the coming season.........

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

Actually this one predict that Brazil would loose to Holland.

The gold cakes are Acarajés, they are made with black-eyed beans shelled and milled, fried in palm oil (Dendę) and filled with a salsa normally based in fried shrimps, caju nuts, coconuts milk and a lot of chili.

This is pretty common from Bahia state in Brazil, but you can also find it in major centers as Sao Paulo, Rio and Brasilia, made and sold by those big women dressed with white dresses. This was one of the things I was really missing from Brazil, because even Zurich is full of Brazilian I never found it to sell in any Brazilian restaurant nor even in the Caliente festival where I would expect to find it. Maybe I should start my own Acarajé and Bahia style food business.
