Ceviche – pescado de ceviche

Ceviche is on my to-do list for a long time already.  One of my favourite cooks, Chakall, made a very good version of ceviche with mango.  He is also the one that gave me the inspiration for the Mexican style chocolate chicken. Recently, the warm weather and a different foodblog brought ceviche back to my…

watermelon strawberry salad

Watermelon strawberry salad is an ideal dish for these terribly hot summer days. It is light, healthy, extraordinary tasteful and the fruits contain a lot of liquid, you need this during these days. I found the original of this recipe as “watermelon caprese” on insolence and wine, a blog that specialises in the combination of…

potato-egg salad

This potato-egg salad is a perfect side dish for the hot summer days or for a barbecue outside. If you don’t like the combination with eggs, you might also consider to try the apple-potato salad I made on an earlier occasion. If you have a lot of guests, just make both versions and have people…

Hummus bil tahini

In 2008 I have been on Holiday in Jordan. A great country with warm people really wanting to help you, and not ripping of tourists. We visited many traditional sites and could enjoy delicious mezzes. On my way back I had a cookbook in my luggage with the best Jordan recipes.

One of them is hummus, which I still make a lot in summer and when I have guests.

smoked chicken with avocado

I made this starter long ago, back in 2007, for the first time. Meanwhile it is quite easy to buy an avocado you can use immediately.  I remember back then I always bought them one week in advance so they could get ready for usage. You can find the dutch version here.  I have the original…

chicory salad with autumn fruits

I love chicory, and like asparagus, you have to eat it in the appropriate season, autumn and winter in this case. I made already many recipes with it, but this variation is a real recommendation for January, to compensate for the overload of calories you had in December. The goal of the recipe is to…

greek tuna fish starter

This was the first ever recipe I posted on my dutch blog “gerechtenweb“, back already in 2007. I rediscovered it recently, and decided to translate it in English also. Ingredients: 200 gr tuna (fresh is the best, canned is also ok) 4 pickles about 15 black stoned olives (green is also good, but black tastes…

lukewarm pumpkin salad

Autumn is the season for pumpkin recipes. I found the inspiration for this one on Lovenourish. I especially like the combination of pumpkin and chickpeas. Ingredients: one third of a butternut squash. 100 grams of chickpeas 1 red onion 50 grams of sun-dried tomatoes 100 grams of feta cheese a handful of finely cut fresh…

Duck with Hasselback potatoes and a salad of chicory and roasted figs

More or less by accident I created a potential Sylvestermenu today.  It started with a recipe for roasted figs with chicory I saw.  The combination watched my interest and I wanted to make it immediately. but as it is a side dish, I needed something to go along with it. Recently I made Hasselback potatoes,…
