Indian spices meet a Portugese twist.
Nothing beats a nice curry if you ask me. I remember the first time when I read a recipe of the Vindaloo curry, thinking “wow, that’s strange!” It packs an interesting punch in the form of vinegar, which was introduced to India when Portugal used to have colonies in the land of spices. The Portugese seem to love their vinegar and they used it to remind them of home and as a natural way to preserve goods in a time long before anything like a refridgerator. I am glad about this fusion, as it makes for a delicious curry you definately should give a try!

With fermented black beans for an umami laden twist.
I think theCchinese sweet and sour chicken we know is as Chinese as chicken tikka masala is Indian: not at all! Despite it’s lack of authenticity, it’s still a delicioius dish. I added a special ingredient to make things more interesting and nudge it a little more back to China.

The rich umami flavour of shii-take mushrooms, soft, almost sweet leeks and a creamy, mild mustard sauce.

And very quick to cook up too in a huge bulk that will have you covered with leftofters for the next week. You are welcome!

Childhood memories and cowboys.
A really good chilli con carne is a comforting soul food that I can enjoy the whole year. Comforting, but not boring, as I feel a proper chilli con carne needs to be on the edge of being almost too hot. The slightly painful tingle in your mouth is what really elevates this dish from an ordinary stew to something special. Get yourself a spoon and some handkerchiefs to wipe away the sweat and let’s dig in!

Tasty meal preping for dummies.
One of the most common execuses I hear as coach is that people are too busy, especially when it comes to cooking. Nobody seems to have time for it. I see and understand the point: not everyone is a foodie like us who likes spending time in the kitchen. But you do not need too: it can be so easy! This curry takes about 15 minutes to prepare and you can scale it up for as many hangry bears you need to feed. No excuses of not having time for that!

Cheap, easy and delicious.
Easter is around the corner and I am excited! Not because of any religious meaning, but because there will be lamb. There has to be lamb, and I will take any excuse for cooking a proper lamb roast! This roast is so easy, you can barely call it cooking: cut some veggies, season the meat and put it into the oven. Then you wait. It’s called slowfood for a reason. You will be rewared with sweet, tender meat falling off the bone. So what are you waiting for, start roasting!
