Lunar New Year: Tofu and Eggs

Lunar New Year: Tofu and Eggs

This is a recipe I’ve been doing for a while. The first time I made this, was actually the first time I tried century eggs. You don’t know what a century egg is? Well, follow the link to wikipedia  or make a quick search on youtube to see people eating them and agonizing. I, on the contrary, love them..as any other food. But in order to know if I liked them or not, a while ago I went to the Asia…

Vegan Chocolate Spread (World Nutella Day)

Vegan Chocolate Spread (World Nutella Day)

I made Vegan chocolate spread to celebrate World Nutella Day. Don’t get me wrong…it doesn’t taste like Nutella, that wasn’t my intention. I wanted to make something inspired by Nutella. Nevertheless, f you change the cashews for hazelnuts, it will remind you to the real thing. I just found it interesting to make a cashew and chocolate spread for the first time. I love the result, and I’ve been eating it all day.   Ingredients (makes a small batch): 65…

Trout Rolls

Trout Rolls

I find lobster rolls, shrimp rolls or whatever you want to put on a roll, a great meal. I’ve tried them in many places, being steak tartar one of my favourites (read more here).   Well, yesterday I bought some nice buns and decided to do some kind of fish roll. Saw some rainbow trout and everything made sense. This recipe was really nice and refreshing. Not that we need to be refreshed in winter. Although after so many winter stews…

Macaroni tikka masala with chicken and Brussels sprouts

I don’t have much to say. It’s not my first time mixing pasta and Brussels sprouts. This is a really special pasta bake. Made with purple brussels & pancetta, and instead of using cream I used coconut milk for extra sweetness. Good morning! . . . . . . . . #pasta #bake #cheese #bacon #brusselsprouts #purple #coconutmilk #mozzarella #pancetta #macandcheese A post shared by Sílvia Fooding (@silviafooding) on Jan 3, 2018 at 1:17am PST The results are always good….

Roscón de Reyes: King’s Cake for the Twelfth Night

Roscón de Reyes: King’s Cake for the Twelfth Night

I know I’m late. I mean, the Epiphany was celebrated yesterday and I’m posting this today…But let’s be honest, 99% of you bought the cake yesterday and were not willing to make it yourselves. I was like that a couple of years ago, it’s more convenient. But I love making food, and I want to bake more, because I’m not very good at it. And I think I won’t ever be good at it, because I never follow recipes. For…

Tips for the perfect Cheeseboard (New Year’s Eve ideas)

Tips for the perfect Cheeseboard (New Year’s Eve ideas)

I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved eating cheese in New Year. Maybe it’s because we are all cheesaholics in my family, but also because it’s very convenient: you just have to plate them and they are delicious. Tips for the perfect cheeseboard: Choose a blue cheese. I really love blue cheese. Sometimes, if the cheeseboard is big enough I add two or three types of blue cheese. If I had to pick one, I’ll go for a Stilton…

Pear and Orange Trifle with Christmas spices

Pear and Orange Trifle with Christmas spices

Happy Christmas to you all! I made a trifle for Christmas Eve. Here in Galicia (and I think everywhere in Spain) we celebrate the day before Christmas, apart from Christmas day. I made a pear trifle with Christmas spices and candied fruit. The house still smells delicious from making the candied fruit. If you have never done it…do yourself a favour and try. The flavour is amazing, but the smell is incredible. I couldn’t make my own sponge because my…

Christmas Chicken à l’orange in a tiny oven

Christmas Chicken à l’orange in a tiny oven

I’ve decided there’s no Christmas unless there’s a turkey on the table. I mean, I’ve been doing that for a long time now. The thing is…I don’t have a proper oven (yet). I have a new kitchen and I still have to buy an oven, but meanwhile I’m still using my good old small oven. Why haven’t I bought a bigger oven yet? I haven’t found one that I really liked. If you have any suggestions, please let me know,…
