I’ve noticed that lately I’m making more cakes…that would be due to the summer fruit and beautiful sunny days effect kicking in. It’s certainly true that I could keep on posting (and eating) only cakes, but today I’ve pushed myself to use my flour for a savory recipe. Continua a leggere

I love savory more than sweet food, but I have more fun preparing cakes, in my mind they give me way too much satisfaction. There is no doubt. Lately with all the markets crowded with people and red fruits (of which Quebec is very proud), my desire to make cakes has notably increased. Continua a leggere

Eggplant humus with tofu salad

In my entire life I’ve never stolen, I pay my bills regularly, I am a faithful person and I don’t lie … except at customs. Not always, but sometimes returning from Italy I happen to have some food hidden in my luggage. I’m aware that it’s not a good deed, but the temptation always wins. Continua a leggere

Walking around the market during the beautiful summer mornings means going home with a great amount of fruits and vegetables, sometimes even with flowers, sometimes with plants (and please note that I have a very small balcony!). A couple of days ago I went overboard and I came back home with a big watermelon. Continua a leggere

Although this is not the first time that I’ve tried to cook Indian food, I officially apologize to all my Indian friends and to all those who grew up with paneer prepared as it should, by the able hands of their mother or their grandmother…. Continua a leggere

I’m aware that in the past few months you heard me complain a lot about the cold and snow, but you must know that summer time in Montreal can be really hot. Living in a place where the winter lasts 4-5 months, I won’t complain, but it’s true that the only thing we can do (especially if there’s no air conditioning at home) is staying as close as possible to the freezer.
