I am not vegan, but many of my close friends are. I love the challenge when cooking vegan. Most of the food I see in restaurants aren't that creative or even resemble the "regular" food.
I was asked by Bordeaux Wines to make a whole Christmas dinner and I was very excited about making this dinner with a Twist. (You can see the dinner here). I had loads of messages asking me for the recipe of the loaf. I have to accept I have been busy like a hive of bees, but tomorrow is the last day the shops are open, so if you have vegan guests for Xmas or you are vegan yourself, run to the closest Whole Foods Store/Bio Markt and make this Loaf.
The holidays are over and I promised myself never to eat again... I ate WAY too much of too good food. From norwegian Pinekjøtt, swedish xmas meatballs, pork, stuffed turkey... you name it. Chirtsmas food is great but is great for just one time in the year.
Though since I am back home and on an 8-week-diet before Our big trip to Vietnam, I got nostalgic. Xmas nostalgic. Missing friends and family, and somehow the food. So I made this Soup containing ingredients of xmas love. It has very little calories and it is delicious.
We got a present from Marius a while back; a 1971 Barbaresco. The only way to enjoy such a wine is in the company of great people, and as such we decided to invite Marius for dinner. A Xmas celebration before Christmas. A "two foodies eating" with more foodies kinda meal.
This dish is part of Andrea's family tradition, and the recipe has been passed on for generations. Only one person of each generation is granted the privelige to learn the process. The idea is that the family has to be together to be able to enjoy this meal. This is just half of the recipe - the second part involves a different stuffing. We will make that once we get closer to Christmas, when @donmahr is coming for dinner at our place.
