Chilli Spoon

In Food,Photography,Video by Jaco / 24 January 2014 / 0 Comments

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.

Or as Jamie would say: Minestrone d’inizio autunno. Seeing that autumn has hit us with full force here in Holland, I thought it to be appropriate to share these warm and tasty photos with you.

Green asparagus quiche

In Food,Recipes by Dorine / 10 September 2013 / 0 Comments

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

In Food,Recipes by Dorine / 27 August 2013 / 1 Comment

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!

The Fig

In Food by Jaco / 16 August 2013 / 1 Comment

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.

Boerewors in Holland

In Food by Dorine / 5 August 2013 / 1 Comment

In 2010 I volunteered via VSO in Namibia. When I met Jaco I quickly became one of his family. This meant that I was also introduced to their food and one dish in particular, boerewors. This is a traditional South African sausage and delicious, especially when prepared on the BBQ, better known to them as a braai and it’s huge.

Back in Namibia Jaco’s parents would make the boerewors themselves, but since we have been back in The Netherlands we haven’t been able to enjoy it as much as we would like. It is quit hard to get a hold of, but one of the places that you can, is Die Spens in Amersfoort.

About 2 weeks ago summer finally arrived in Holland and we decided to celebrate by having a BBQ. We picked out a nice pick-nick spot on the grass behind our apartment building and set up our Little Pink Braai!

Little heaps of potato

Welcome to the very first blog post!

I thought it would be appropriate (and convenient, cause it’s what I made for dinner) to photograph a South African dish.
