Any nuts together with chocolate is a win. And so is this cake. But it’s not the nut and chocolate combo that makes this cake divine – there is also the moisture that comes with pear!
I love pasta, but try not to eat too much to keep me from a carb bombarding (I can really overeat pasta!). So this is a good way to eat pasta. There are a lot of other things in it, and you can still get a bit of pasta to overcome the craving.
My guest on the podcast today is Minna Kaljonen, a research professor at the Finnish Environment Institute. She also works with the “Just Food” project carried out in Finland.
Pulla means “bun” in Finnish. And it is something that you can find everywhere from cafes to the bakery sections of the supermarkets. Having a pulla with your coffee (well, for me, with tea) is one of the most Finnish things you can do.
I love puff pastry and brie (I love CHEESE!). So yes, of course, this would be a divine combination for me, with fig jam and walnuts added. Oh my, this turned out dellllicious.
Cauliflower can be a tricky vegetable. It can be incredibly bland if you only boil it and serve it like that. Well, sometimes, when I don’t have much time, I like to boil cauliflower and simply eat it with yoghurt. But this dish is extremely rich in flavour with a softened texture.
2022 is here, and the first recipe I chose for the new year is my version of “mücver” – aka Turkish courgette fritters. I added carrots to it and used cornflour to take the moisture. The result is a delicious gluten-free dish.
Here is an easy spread recipe that will add bright colours to your table! It’s effortless, and the only thing that takes a little bit of time is the roasting of beetroots and garlic.
My guest on the podcast today is Bettina Lindfors, a project manager for the New Nordic Food Programme. In this episode, Bettina and I talked about the New Nordic Food Manifesto, published in 2004 and signed by chefs from all the Nordic countries and the problems of the food system in general and Finland.
A few weeks ago, we had a lovely raki and mezze night with my boyfriend and two of my closest friends. Raki is the national drink of Turkey, and it is my favourite alcoholic beverage. But I don’t love just the taste of it; I love the whole “socialisation, eating long and drinking long with people you love” aspects of it. And of course, the mezze that comes together with it is equally important!
