Mediterranean Millet Salad

Long time no see my friends! I’ve been abroad for the past semester and with all the new and exiting experiences there I didn’t find much time to create new recipes. But now I’m back in Switzerland and I’ve got plenty of delicious and refreshing ideas for this heat wave. First up: a mediterranean millet salad. It’s full of fresh flavours combined with the light but nourishing millet. It’s perfect as a to-go salad in a jar, as part of a salad buffet or as a side for a barbecue. … More Mediterranean Millet Salad

Rainbow Swiss Chard Galette

Every year we have this beautifully rainbow colored swiss chard at the market. It has all these stunning red, pink, orange, yellow and white shades. I love to cook with it as it’s just a joy to have these many colors on the plate. Mostly I just stew it, put a little cream and spices on it and eat it with rice or pasta. But to honor all it’s beauty I wanted to create a recipe that’s more extraordinary. And so I created a savory galette to show of the whole rainbow! … More Rainbow Swiss Chard Galette

Colorful Kale Salad

Winter time means kale time. It must’ve been 4 or 5 years ago that I first had kale salad. It was a delight. Ever since it’s one of my favorite winter salads (next to my other two favorites – chicory salad and the good old lambs lettuce) and I’m always looking forward to it. I love to put a sweet component and a touch of color into my salads – so here you have it: kale and raddicchio rosso with cranberries and nuts. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! … More Colorful Kale Salad

Beet Crêpes aka Pink Omelettes

In autumn and winter food tends to be more orange and brownish (hello there pumpkins and potatoes) but I really wanted to have some color on my plate. I saw a recipe for green spinach crêpes on the Green Kitchen Stories Blog and as I really love crêpes I thought it was a wonderful idea to color these usually brown pieces of deliciousness. Right now beets are popping up at the local farmers markets and I found them to be the perfect addition to my batter. … More Beet Crêpes aka Pink Omelettes

Pumpkin Mac’n’Cheese

I had a really big craving for mac n cheese for over to years now. I even went to the states and never managed to eat some. So a week ago I had a jar of pumpkin purée left and didn’t know what to make for dinner. Then I had the brilliant idea of making a pumpkin mac’n’cheese and it turned out so good! I mean really good. I was really surprised as I thought it might be a bit too heavy but it was just the right balance. It’s the perfect comfort food for the chilly autumn days. … More Pumpkin Mac’n’Cheese

Salad Topping Two Ways

As the weather is getting warmer my cravings are shifting towards fresh fruits and salads. But as we all know well, they don’t keep us nourished for a whole day – that’s why I like to add little bits and bobs to my salads. Mostly it’s roasted veggies, some sort of cheese or eggs. But I also love to add seeds and nuts, even though I do find them a little boring when plain. That’s why I came up with two salad toppings! I made them for my mums birthday brunch and her guests loved it! … More Salad Topping Two Ways

Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto

So it was spring equinox and our forests start blooming and getting all green again. This means a very happy me! Obviously I had to go for a long walk to fill my lungs with that fresh spring air and soak in all those soft sunbeams. On our way trough the woods, we passed a spot, where my brother and I used to drive around with our bikes. It’s such a magical place with a lot of very small paths and every spring it was filled with a ton of wild garlic and flowers. We harvested quite a bit of the garlic on the way home and I made a fresh garlic pesto that night. I think it tasted even a bit better, because it was from this magical childhood place. … More Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto

5 Flavor Winter Salad

A big part of what I do in the kitchen is experimenting. I rarely follow a recipe (besides when I want to make a soufflé or something similarly difficult). Lately I’ve been reading about the different flavors, how the enhance each other and where the different cultures take them from. I really recommend doing your own research into that – it’s really interesting and inspiring. … More 5 Flavor Winter Salad
