A quick question.
Is Jamie Oliver what BettyBossi is for us here, you know quick and easy but yummy recipes?
Also, if I do want to try out his recipes will I find most of the ingredients here?
Jamie Oliver is not Betty Bossi, it is tastier. You can't pretty much go wrong with any recipe he puts together, so simple. I always find what I need here. This is the show I watch, it's fantastic. I got his magazine here, they even sell it in our tiny town. It's a nice xmas inspiration.

Just need to get his ultra power shredder, he's got a good food processor, cuts the cooking time to half.

Here's the kimchi I made last week. Does it count since it's not technically cooked or baked?
It does, it does!! Please post the recipe.
I tried to make kimchi once, and it didn't turn out the way I want it, and yours looks perfect!

In Poland now. No time for pictures but here are some of the Xmas cakes and dishes

Poppy seed cake, sweet tits (I know, politically incorrect name ), flaki (typical Polish meat stew) and salad made from celery tops (non-leafy ones), pine apple and chicken

Concocted my own recipe, not sure if it's perfected yet but it tastes pretty good.

Green Tea Cookies

70g butter
3/4 cup white castor sugar
1 egg
1 2/3 cups flour (I recommend Denner's Kuchenmehl for a light texture)
1/3 teaspoon baking soda (Natron)
pinch of salt
2 1/2 teaspoons green tea powder (if you don't have this, mill some loose green tea leaves and sieve to obtain powder)

Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (155 if fan assisted).
Beat the sugar into the softened butter for 2 minutes.
Add the whole egg and beat for another minute.
Mix all the dry ingredients together and fold into the butter mixture carefully using a spatula or wooden spoon.
With floured hands, shape into large marble-size spheres and press flat (4mm thick) onto baking parchment on baking tray.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Gently transfer onto a wire rack to cool. Makes 24-30 cookies.
Frost if preferred.

Note: I like my cookies tender and a little soft. If you prefer yours crispy, lower the temperature by 5-10 degrees and bake for a few minutes longer.


Frosting recipe:

1/2 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon green tea powder
3-4 teaspoons lemon juice
2 drops of yellow food colouring (optional)

Mix the sugar and green tea powder together. Mix in 3 tsp of the lemon juice. Add lemon juice or a tiny bit of water to achieve the consistency desired for decorating the cooled cookies with a tiny spoon. (You can intensify or lessen the green tea flavour by increasing or decreasing the green tea powder by half a teaspoon.)

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

Thank you, Argus. Just one more question, do you buy the green tea powder here in Switzerland?

No, I haven't really looked much for it in the shops here. I have a bag of loose good-quality green tea leaves from which I take 4 teaspoons and mill it in a blender. Then I sieve it to obtain the powder and throw away the chaff.

It is also possible to buy matcha (green tea powder) on-line or at the store at Kapellplatz 7, Luzern ( http://www.camellia-tea-house.ch ).

I will also ask at NAM, as I'm going there tomorrow. If not, I will just make it like Argus said.
In the meantime I made some Russian Tea Cakes / Mexican Wedding Cakes
