Sometimes you wake up a little bit later than your friends only to find your timeline and a group chat talking about a new hype. Last Monday, Sophia, Maria & Kai (from IN SEARCH OF) & My Bestie, Foodie and awesome photographer Ailine were thrilled talking about Poke and how we should do a "cookalong" on saturday. I jumped to my mac and started the research.
Poke has nothing to do with Pokemon Go, but is hyping almost as much. Poke (pronounced Poukai) is not Japanese but Hawaiian and is a fish salad! Though the seasonings are very influenced by japanese cuisine. Traditionally, it was just raw fish dipped in Soy Sauce and wasabi, but nowadays it has evolved (get the poke joke?)
And how do we poke? it is easy! You start with a BASE of rice or salad then comes the FISH of choice with or without marinade, followed by TOPPINGS of your choice. It almost feel like making Fro-Yo.
Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I have been sick for some weeks and couldn't bare to be on a computer for a long time.
I am at the moment crazy about oils. As you might remember, I posted a recipe for Basil Infused Oilsome weeks ago. So I have been experimenting using it in some recipes.
It is getting cold in Berlin and I always feel like "Italian" when I am sick. I had some Black Tiger Prawns at home and some risotto rice, and this is what I made with it:
Two weeks ago we had some smashing friends over for dinner and we made them an almost complete Peruvian meal. We say almost because the first dish was a Croque Monsieur. We simply could not resist to use the Handwerk sourdough bread for something. The dessert , mango pie, we already posted a while back, and now we give you the recipe for the main dish of the evening; Lomo Saltado.
Did you check out our post about Colibri? The new Peruvian restaurant of Andrea's dad in Germany. One of the dishes he serves is Arroz Con Pato, which means Rice With Duck. We made it at home recently, and here is the recipe for you to try as well.
Every time we visit Gutta på Haugen we hear Joachim talking about the amazing artichokes from La Baita, like they were made of pure gold. So we decided to try these Italian delicacies from the region of Albenga. We figured we'd keep it Italian style and make a risotto
Ají de Gallina - "The chili of the hen". Traditionally this Peruvian dish is made with hen, which gives a different taste, but our recipe is with chicken. We used chicken because it is more available, and you are actually just supposed to use the breast fillets. Good quality hen can be hard to find.
