Tamagoyaki

A tasty way to get your eggs in.

My relationship to eggs is difficult. There are egg dishes that are absolutely boring, almost tiresome to eat, and there are insanely interesting egg dishes. For me, tamagoyaki belongs to the later. A silky consistency, quite sweet but savoury at the same time. This is probably the best way to transform eggs into something exciting. Give it a try! Continue reading “Tamagoyaki”

Easy Roast Duck

Complete with a wonderful side dish.

Roasted duck is a true delicacy. A deep, warming flavour, fat and delicious, easier to prepare than most believe it to be. Not exactly a classic diet food, more a treat and comfort food.

I would like to give you some insights in the research findings as well as write down some of the thoughts Prof. Gardner expressed in the podcast.

What About Saturated Fats?

Picking cherries for science.

It’s hard for me to realise, but it’s 2018 and people are still afraid of saturated fat in their diet. But recently I had a “discussion” with a nutritionist and it showed me that recent efforts in debunking the myth of saturated fats increasing your blood cholesterol level and therefore killing you, were fruitless. Even worse, a discussion quickly turns into a religious battle, where any counterarguments are quickly turned aside with the accusation of “cherry-picking” studies, leaving my wondering if they even wonder if they are the ones cherry-picking. So, let’s take a closer look on this highly controversial topic and let the cherry-picking begin πŸ˜‰ ! Continue reading “What About Saturated Fats?”

Bear-pleasing Quick Choc Pot

…and it’s vegan and gluten-free too, if you use the right chocolate!
