Salsa di Pomodoro

Tomato sauce, in plain English. I bought an old-school food mill. Passe-vite, if you will, or passeerzeef for those in the Netherlands. Whatever name you want to give it, I’m so happy with the darn thing. It improved the quality of my tomato sauces by, oh well, something like 200%. Time saver, since you don’t have to remove skin or seeds anymore, you can let the mill do that for…

    Chicken & Red Onion Sauce Sandwich

    I have a love/hate relationship with the red onion sauce our grillrooms serve with the shoarma that’s often eaten after a night out. It’s one of the mellowest sauces ever, but also quite oily. It’s not exactly a low-fat recipe, but so chockfull of flavour and it goes with pretty much anything you can think of, and then some. That counts for something, right? Found only a small handful recipes…

      Tapas!

      I’ve been collecting and trying lots of Tapas recipes ever since we decided to take our son to Spain this summer. Really looking forward to our trip. Alioli and pan con ajo y tomate (bread scrubbed with garlic & tomato) are two of those things that simply belong on the table when eating tapas. Sharing both recipes here. Now here’s the deal; like any other food blogger, I too had…

        Sweet Jalapeño Hot Sauce

        I went a little crazy last time I went out for grocery shopping and ran into lots and lots of pretty green jalapeños. Probably not a big deal to many of you, but in the Netherlands that’s a pretty rare find. I got a little carried away and bought way too much! I thought about jalapeño pickles, tasty but hardly spectacular. I already have tons of jalapeño powder that I…

          Curry Masala Mayonnaise

          Really simple but incredibly versatile recipe that everyone should keep in their fridge for easy access. This is a basic, fragrant Surinamese masala mayonnaise with a flavour intensity that will be love at first bite if you’re a curry masala addict, like me. It tastes fantastic when served with French fries or roasted root vegetables, but it also transforms a few simple cooked chicken breasts (add pineapple!) or hard-boiled eggs…

            Apple Ketchup

            A friend of mine who knows how much I love sauces that taste so different from what you can buy in the store, mailed me a screenshot of a recipe she found in a book called The Green Kitchen. It did pique my interest: ketchup made with apple, banana, raisins and a hint of cinnamon. How can you not want to try that? Something about it screamed ‘autumn‘, so I…
