Churros y Chocolate

Churros y Chocolate

I think everyone knows what churros are… but what you don’t know is how much I like them!  Whenever I go to Spain, they are my breakfast with a nice cup of hot chocolate… no matter the time of the year, the season and the weather!  That’s how much I like them.  There are a…

Thandai

Today, Indians celebrate Holi, the festival of spring, also known as the festival of colours.  Holi signifies the victory of good over evil and the arrival of spring, but for many people it’s also an opportunity to repair ruptured relationships. During this time, people play, chase and colour each other with dry powder and coloured…

Moroccan Beef Kefta Briouat #SundaySupper

This week the #Sunday Supper team is celebrating the Oscars!  We will be showcasing all sorts of “Red carpet” food!  Don’t you love the theme? When I saw the theme, I thought of making something special and a bit unusual, at least for me.  I wanted something that you could eat with your hands, maybe…

Moroccan Mint Tea

Moroccan Mint Tea

I love Moroccan Mint Tea, so it was the first thing I chose to prepare for my Daring Cooks’ Middle Eastern Breakfast.  It traditionally hails from the Maghreb region (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia), but it has now spread throughout the Arab world.  It is more like a “social drink” served to guests and I would…

Za’atar Manouche

Manouche, also known as Manakish, is a popular Levantine bread topped with a thyme mixture (Za’atar), cheese, or ground meat.  It is similar to a pizza and it can be sliced or folded.  It is often served for breakfast, which makes this bread perfect for the Middle Eastern breakfast I had to prepare for this…

Asian Chicken Sliders with Sriracha Mayo

This weekend is all about Super Bowl food, so if you are like me and LOVE the kind of food that is served for such sporting events, you are in for a big treat!  As you know, I don’t follow football and not living in the USA, also means no Super Bowl… but Italians are…

Chicken Spring Rolls

Chicken Spring Rolls

The other day, I decided to make Chicken Spring Rolls at home.  I love spring rolls, but I often find them quite greasy and oily.  That’s because they are not fried correctly, so they become soggy and absorb too much oil.  This home-made version is so much better.  They come out crunchy and not oily…

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

I saw these on the internet while searching for ideas for my 5 year old’s kitten themed birthday party.  Apparently these Kitty Cat Doughnuts are quite popular in Japan.  So I set on a mission to replicate them at home.  I have a little confession to make.  I don’t like doughnuts.  Or so I thought. …

Croquetas de Jamón Serrano

I must admit that even though I love Australia, I often miss Europe.  I was born and brought up in Milan, which is practically in the middle of Europe.  By car, you can get to Switzerland in 30 minutes, to the South of France and Austria in 3 hours and in 5 hours you are…
