Homemade gnocchi with potatoes and parsnips with crispy sage butter

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 1 March 2017

It’s been a bit of a manic week for me: Not only did I move houses, I moved houses twice – firstly in London and then, a day later, in Hamburg. It’s the beginning of a new chapter, I am beyond excited, but also very exhausted. I assume I won’t have the time to come up with a new recipe for the blog this week, but as it’s the first day of a new month today, I am excited to share with you another recipe for my food column for Mio magazine! Here you go: Homemade gnocchi with potatoes and parsnips and crispy sage butter!

A day in Balham, and Moroccan food at Tagine Balham

Posted in: London, Places · 20 February 2017

I’m a South London girl, however, due to the lack of underground lines in this part of town, I happen to not be in the South west very often. Thankfully I have friends though who are as much into food and coffee as I am, so I got to explore the lovely area of Balham last week and had delicious Moroccan food at Tagine Balham.

Baked squash with lentils and a sun-dried tomato pesto

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 17 February 2017

This recipe has been one of my contributions for “Mio“ magazine, but I have not posted it on the blog yet. Sadly, that is – because it is one of my all-time favourite squash recipes, consisting of oven-baked squash, al dente cooked lentils, a zingy tomato pesto and – perhaps the best part – a dollop of creamy goat’s cheese. Et voilà: Baked squash with lentils and a sun-dried tomato pesto. Happy Friday!
