Why I won’t be having gammon for Christmas and why I don’t mind.

Why I won’t be having gammon for Christmas and why I don’t mind.

Since 2012 I’ve been celebrating Christmas apart from my family and friends. Apart from what I considered tradition and apart from typical Spanish Christmas food (which by the way, I took with me every year since then, but you get the point, right?). This year, only a couple of weeks ago, I had a car crash. It has stopped the streak of years celebrating Christmas in Ireland, with all our friends and many more (You can read more here) I…

Tortellini with aubergine and coconut milk (Vegetarian)

Tortellini with aubergine and coconut milk (Vegetarian)

Hey there! I haven’t been able to update this web with recipes lately because I haven’t been cooking a lot, basically. The other day, I went to the doctor, a week after a car accident. I am better than I expected, but my neck is making me rest for a while (presumably a couple of months until I am 100% as I was before the accident). I’m not in a rush, but the first thing I asked the doctor was:…

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary

One year ago today, I started my Instagram account (a day after this website) as a way to share my passion for food. I was sleeping in a hospital room and thought it was the perfect moment to start this project. Today I have a neck injury due to a car accident that could have been much worse. We're home. Thanks for the kind words and support. Gracias 😌 . . . . #EE #Hope #recovery #survivors #happy #tankful #instagram…

Bangers and Mash with onion gravy. Recipe for the 5th of November (Celebrating Guy Fawkes and the Bonfire Night)

I’ve already told you that Halloween marks the beginning of the Celebration Season for me. Halloween has always been my favourite celebration. I remember naming every dish with a disgusting name. I’ve made a grown-up dinner today, but in order to keep it up with Sílvia from the past, here we go: •Jack-o-lantern puke with poisonous peppers. •Baby dragon wings with sweet potatoes covered in ghost plasma •Bloodinade to drink There you go! Happy halloween . . . . #halloween…

Día de los Muertos: Tacos two ways

Día de los Muertos: Tacos two ways

Today is the Day of the Dead (or Día de los Muertos as they say in Spanish). This Mexican tradition is known everywhere in the world. I always enjoy celebrating anything, even when I learnt about it two days ago (not in this case, but happens to me all the time). Celebrations are excuses to investigate on other people’s traditions, learn and of course cook something different. Today I made tacos for lunch and I’m cooking tacos for dinner right…

Another Tapas Contest: Tapas Picadillo in Coruña I

Another Tapas Contest: Tapas Picadillo in Coruña I

I’ve already told you that I get very anxious when something big related to food happens near me. Tapas Picadillo contest is always a good example. I even get to the point where I hate the contest for existing and making me take such hard decissions. And always the same question in my head…which tapas shall I try this year? This time I decided to take it easy and make a “small” selection of the tapas that I needed to…

Mr. Sandwich: Protein party in a chicken sandwich (Super easy & Super quick)

Mr. Sandwich: Protein party in a chicken sandwich (Super easy & Super quick)

I’ve started running (again but seriously). The other day I had in mind a veggie risotto for lunch so I went for a long run to a supermarket. When I arrived, my body thought about the risotto and laughed at me. I needed meet and bread. I am a wise woman 🙄 so I didn’t contradict my body…I know I should listen to whatever stupid decision it makes. So I bought chicken breast fillets and bread. When I headed home,…

Tomato Steak

Tomato Steak

I’ve been in Madrid for a week before a gig and I came back to Galicia with a bunch of photos, some ideas, and my belly full. One of those ideas was this Tomato Steak. I’ve visited a nice place with good wine and food called Celso y Manolo in Chueca. Although I couldn’t eat there, I tried some of their wines. I inspected the menu, anyway, and found this interesting concept called “Tomato steak”. The plump, oversized, ripe tomatoes…
