Tonight's Yumminess:
Sheep's milk blue cheese (courtesy of grumpy's British Cheese Center of Switzerland), white wine, garlic, and mushroom pasta topped with spicy steak. The steak had a dry rub of cayenne, nutmeg, fresh ground cinnamon, salt, pepper, and garlic and was just lightly cooked. Topped with more sheep's milk blue. The mushrooms brought out the flavor of the blue cheese and it was FANTASTIC!
Looks delicious! Nice to see my cheese being used creatively. BTW, I found the recipe using the Beenleigh Blue with pasta here.

My daughter's 2nd Birthday cake, made this weekend. Ordered all the fondant from back-art.ch. Thanks so much Crumbs!!!!!! :-) Love your site!
I'm trying to do a similar cake (with a theme) can you please share the recipe and pass on some tips?

I'm also very happy to receive some other ideas and help.

It's my first cake (in such a style) and it will be for the first b'day of my little one.

Machas a la parmesana, Ensalada Chilena y Pisco Sour


Cena de Hoy by Mario Andrés Solis, on Flickr

This evening we decided finally use some cans of chilean sea food we have bought in Spain. This plate is called "Machas a la parmesana". To prepare it we put the Machas (Chilean surf clam) in a pot and covered them with few butter and a lot of grated parmesan. We let them in the oven for a while to grain.

as side we prepared a Chilean salad (chopped tomatoes and onions into strips dressed with olive oil and salt).

To drink we prepared Pisco Sour, Chilean National drink (Ok there are some divergences with our peruvian fellows). 1 dose of chilean pisco, 3 of lime juice, a lot of white sugar and ice, this is the Chilean Caipirinha

Yeh, it was good, it's a pit I cannot find more of such Sea Food here in Switzerland.

I took your idea for tonight's dinner and made with scallops on a bed of white asparagus. Super delicious.

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

Busy, busy and the same time relaxing weekend in the kitchen
Cookies made with a cookie press (lots of fun), for a Friday dinner: fish fillets baked with asparagus served with home made garlic-parsley buns, crepes a la Michel Roux (with addition of full cream), for Saturday dinner: beef stew with parsley dumplings and for a dessert really simple banana-pudding squares

Yesterday was KFC so I went healthy for lunch at home today. Seared tuna with blanched mange tout and baby asparagus with a soy and sesame dressing.

lol yeah both the veggies and the tuna are "all but" raw. In the last decade I've discovered almost everything tastes better raw. The searing is just to add another dimension to the taste.

I did cook a salmon soup yesterday, the salmon was also just tender, so my kid would eat it, but not overcooked (thai noodles, smoked salmon in chicken broth, bits of fresh bell pepper and green onions, thai curry paste, loads of lemon sauce....hmmmm, really nice, fast and super cheap).

So, I get the thing people have for raw stuff. I am learning, I am learning. Still, have to submit to complete reprogramming to actually enjoy chinese fondue here..

Made me think of somebody who was raw food and fruitarian, ugh.

Well raw beef and raw fruits and nuts really aren't analogues at all

Try your kid with miso soup (clearspring does some good ones, they're organic with no additives) and chuck in some "wet" jelly chicken stock. Add udon noodles, asparagus tips, cut up avocado and optionally some tuna. When it's in the bowl, put lemon juice and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper (kiddies need to start low with it and work up). Add soy sauce as well if needed.

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

This weekend I was treated to a local traditional thingy ..... Grilled Fondue with Bärlauch on dry white bread .... delicious!

Tis the (very) short season for Bärlauch and so we went Bärlauch a-picking in the forest this weekend ... and had this dish for lunch! Slices of dried out old white bread (NOT toast bread) spread with (cheating) instant packaged Fondue mixed with the ground up with Olive Oil Bärlauch, and grilled till bubbly. Served with a Nussli salat (topped with hard boiled egg bits, chopped onions and tangy Balsamic dressing).

Was SO delicious, I made it for the grandkids lunch today .. and they... who normally despise anything resembling natural/hand picked ... thoroughly enjoyed it. In place of the Nussli salat, I topped their cheese with crispy bacon bits.
