Julia's Glutenfree Cherry-Choc
Last december we hosted a Xmas Brunch and some of the guest brought cakes. Julia, a colleague of mine, brought an AWESOME chocolate cherry cake... and it was glutenfree!
I asked her if it was possible to get her recipe and share them with you, and she said YES! This recipe is so easy to do and it is delicious... and the longer you wait to eat it, the best it tastes... just like lasagna.
As I have been feeling very sick lately, I haven't been cooking much nor going out. But when my awesome college Tobi gave me a big pack of whole buckwheat, I had to give it a try. I don't think i have ever seen buckwheat whole before and I was a bit skeptic at the beginning, but if you can't have rice, you have celiac disease or diabetes, this is an amazing way to have that risotto feeling. You can also try my Sunflower Risotto :)
Ginger Chicken-balls Soup
When you are feeling a bit ill and outside is still cold, there is nothing better than chicken soup. But why make the same old chicken soup? I was in the mood for some ginger and aubergines and had some chicken in the fridge, and this is what I ended up eating.
Alfajores are cookies filled with "Dulce de Leche" a delicacy we bring as a gift to a person´s bday or valentines day. They are very airy cookies as the regular recipe is about 50/50 wheat flour and corn starch. As I cant eat gluten, I decided to give it a try with just Starch and it works great. They were a bit "thick" but practice makes the master... I hope you guys like it!
Some time ago I found a little gourmet store here in Berlin called Fleischhandlung and got myself 2 foie gras medallions. I have been thinking for some weeks how to make them, so I went to Kadewe looking for a new coat and some Lakrids and it hit me! Blackberries and licorice sauce!
