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

A couple of recent desserts and a Laotian minced meat salad called Laab Muu: berry and cream pies, fruity tiramisu, Seri Muka (a Malaysian steamed dessert consisting of a bottom layer of compacted glutinous rice and an upper layer of coconut milk custard flavoured with pandan juice).)

(Sorry if the pics are sideways; have no idea how to correct them as they're from a phone.)

Israel mon amour

My culinary tribute to a country that I am deeply in love with and that, since 2001, holds a very special place in my heart.

Potato Bourekas - pastries made with flaky (phyllo) dough, filled with potatoes, and covered with sesame seeds

Ugat Gvina Im Pirurim - crumb cheesecake

I also have a batch of hand-rolled Jachnun in the oven, but they have to bake for 12-14 hours and so I am drooling while I wait

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

Some comfort food....

Mac and cheese (sort of American style) with cheddar, chevre and some turmeric for color. Also some broccoli. Really easy to make and not too far from the original. The goat cheese is soft and gives it a nice tang. In the US, we might use cheddar and farmer cheese, pot cheese or cottage cheese. (That's how we'd do it, other people use other things)

Also, some catfish (pangasius?) dredged in flour and pan fried.

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

Hi Argus

Can you please post a recipe for Seri Muka that is not so difficult?

I would love to give it a try.

Thanks

Sure. It takes a bit of work though:
http://kuali.com/recipes/view.aspx?r=1953

This Kuih Bakar is much easier and also very tasty:
http://almostbourdain.blogspot.com/2...uih-bakar.html

To obtain pandan juice (sub: pandan paste), cut 6 or 7 pandan leaves into 2cm portions. Puree in a blender with 200ml water. Sieve for its green, aromatic juice and discard pulp.

Try half the recipe if you're not sure (but reduce the baking time by 20 minutes). Forget the sesame seeds if you, like me, don't care for them. And increase the heat during the last 5 minutes to get a nice browned crust.

Thanks for the sentiment. No, I don't sell 'em - the pressure and uncertainty would make me a nervous wreck.

Do try making the Kuih Bakar - it's so easy. You can vary the flavour too - if you cannot be bothered to look for pandan leaves in Asian shops, try with a can of corn (blend it first with most of its accompanying brine if you like) or creamed corn. Or maybe some vanilla with dark brown sugar or palm sugar.

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

Celery soup, made with a whole head of celery, loads of shallots and garlic, stock, fresh bay leaf and rosemary. I also threw in one courgette that was loitering in the fridge.

Tasty and healthy (except for the blob of cream)

Yesterday we prepared a Seafood based diner with Locos Mayo as starter (Chilean Abalones with Mayonnaise and lettuce salad) followed by Sepia a la Plancha with white rice and chilean/brazilian salad(tomatoes, onion and palm heart) as a main course.
