A mild, yet exciting curry of unusual origin.
Many people are afraid a curry is too hot for them and therefore dislike Indian cuisine. However, this massaman curry is comforting mild, but still excitingly fragrant and not at all boring. Indian spices collide with Thai ingredients, giving birth to a very special dish. Comforting, yet interesting. The kind of food that makes you a little sad once you ate the last portion. And the best of all, it’s really easy to make and can be prepared in large batches. Enjoy!

Rustic, foolproof and full of “the good stuff”.
Flapjacks are kinda weird: somewhere between cookie and müsli-bar. Delicious, easy to make and surprisingly satiating. Don’t be fooled by all the “healthy” ingredients like oats, fruits, nuts and honey, they still are what they are, a sweet treat totally worth the calories, but still having quite some calories. Sorry, I just hate it when sweets are labeled “healthy” and then marketed any calorie free. Anyways, enjoy these flapjack cookies, they are simply amazing!

Using a little kitchen magic, we take the edges off the bitterness and transform it into a crowd-pleasing side dish that goes with pretty much any meat or even fish. An Italian classic with a little Asian twist. Give it a try!

Even though there are many components, everything is child’s play to prepare. And the result is worth the effort ten times. Give it a try!
