Writings on curious recipes, food I've tasted around the world and the quest for finding the perfect blueberry muffin.

Onion and parmesan risotto and some exciting news

About a month ago Katharina asked me if she could interview me and feature Little Miss Dids on the Hotel Wiesler Blog. It took me all of 0.5 seconds to think that one through and answer with a very flattered yes. And so, a few days later, she sent me the questions.

Oven-baked pasta with mushrooms and mozzarella

I confessed in the previous post of having a slight obsession with cheese lately. And I said that this is partially do to a magazine I bought last week, which has basically not left my side since the purchase. It contains 60 mouth-watering recipes, in which Italian cheeses are the stars, and I would simply like to cook them all. I can't stop looking at them, and I also can't decide what to try next.

Kasspatzln - cheese spätzle with fried onions

I've been a bit cheese obsessed lately. Maybe it's because I'm finally back in a place where I don't have to take out a loan to actually buy good cheese. Ahem. Or maybe it's because I've been working on my portfolio and bought the magazine Sale e pepe, which came with  an additional smaller magazine entirely dedicated to recipes using Italian cheeses. 60 mouth-watering, cheese-heavy recipes, which I may or may not have looked at a good ten times. For portfolio purposes, naturally.

Profiteroles and escaping the city

March flew by. There were the last couple of weeks of an intermediate term, stressful theory and practical exams (and a wish to never ever again make a bavarois), and somewhere in between there was a birthday. These weeks were followed by two days of tension release, which included an egg hunt, a visit to Gordon's Wine Bar and a goodbye dinner at Taqueria. All three of which were much needed and made me feel a lot more 'human' and in sync with London once again.
