A French classic… Salmon with sorrel - French Foodie Baby

A French classic… Salmon with sorrel - French Foodie Baby

When I was about four years old, my uncle had a community garden where he grew various vegetables. Memory works strangely, doesn’t it? I don’t have a linear recollection of the garden or the time I spent there, only flashes, experiential stills if you will. Unearthing radishes to be bit into with butter and salt....

Romanesco purple potato smoked salmon salad

With much excitement (because we get excited about such things…), our CSA basket brought us a couple of heads of Romanesco broccoli last week. This Madonna-reminiscent bright green vegetable is somewhere between broccoli and cauliflower, with a very subtle flavor and pleasant texture, soft and crunchy at the same time. Its vivid beauty inspired me to improvise something colorful...

Dover Sole filets with Micro Amaranth puree

Why do we spend so much time… forward? There I am, in my kitchen on a Saturday afternoon. Tired yes, but for once I have more or less done what I had set out to do so far. I am going through mint and tarragon for a vegetable terrine recipe (coming soon! See? Thinking forward again)...

Sardine & eggplant brandade

Sardine & eggplant brandade

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” I love this quote by Julia Child. It’s just another way of saying: “Embrace the process”. And embracing the process has been my challenge and my light these past few months. With parenting. And cooking. And blogging....

Cod & Rainbow Chards Brandade

Cod & Rainbow Chards Brandade

Sharing an adaptation of a classic French dish today: the brandade. It has many variations, buttypically it is a mixture of cod fish and potato.
