On a recent holiday trip to Italy (my first time) we visited a very small town on top of a hill, called Poppi. As we where doing the tourist thing, walking into all the small interesting shops on the look out for wine and tasty treats, I found this interesting looking packet of dried spice that said “Pici all’aglione” on it. I like interesting looking things to try, but now I had to choose between 2 very similar looking dried spices. With no real understanding of the local language I asked the shop attended what the difference was.

Two weeks ago I had the chance to display some of my personal work at the Liniepad Festival, held at Fort Altena near Sleeuwijk.

It’s always nerve racking to showcase your work, and this was only my second time. It took me and Dorine the better half of Friday to hang and place al the photos in this really old pre world war bunker, better known as “bunker D”.

When I read the recipe for a green asparagus quiche, I thought to myself, I have to try this. I just love white asparagus, have never tried the green ones before. Thus a great opportunity to try it out in a beautiful savoury pie.

Sticky pork ribs

This is a yummy dish! I got the recipe from my brother after he was ranting and raving about how delicious it is. Turns out it’s a Gordon Ramsay recipe from his book, Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course. I dug a bit deeper into the book and realized it is a pretty handy book to have.

Sweet carrot cake

As a child I didn’t like carrots and still don’t really like cooked carrots. I have heard about carrot cake, but I had no idea what to think of it. A cake with carrots? That couldn’t be very tasty!

Rocket, tomato and chicken salad

I love oven-dishes! I like to prepare all the ingredients, put them all in a baking dish, and put it in the oven to bake. In the meantime I can tidy up the kitchen and have enough time to set the table. Homely and efficient!

I have always had a love hate relationship with figs. On the one hand I love them fresh! They are tasty and vibrant in colour. But I do not like them that much in other forms like jam, preserves and dried.
