Message in a Pancake! (Without Refined Sugar)
While Valentine’s Day is not a romantic day to me, I find it a happy day nonetheless. It provides me with a great excuse to try something new… and bring on silly or tacky preparations, like these pancakes! This recipe is without refined sugar and can be ready quicker than a cup of coffee. You can draw hearts or write messages in the pan...Comments 2
Christmas = Gingerbread Biscuits!
To me Christmas smells of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. I love Christmas and I’m sure many of you do too. It’s almost impossible to resist the Christmas spirit; the decorations, the lights, the music and of course the food make this time of year a special one indeed. Every country has their own food traditions but the cut-out gingerbread biscuits are a popular...

Very Moist Chocolate Cake (Dairy-Egg-Nut and Gluten Free)
Every time I read ‘free from’ gluten, egg, nut or dairy I feel lucky not to be allergic to any of those delicious ingredients. When my baby was just one month old, she started crying in pain after every feed. The kind advice I received on how to soothe her didn’t work so in the end I decided to change my diet, quitting dairy,...
The Healthy Bircher-Müesli
Last winter we spent a few days in the Austrian Alps and every morning I woke up with only one thing in mind; their delicious Bircher-Müesli. I recently realised that it is just as popular here in England as it is in Switzerland, Germany or Austria. I’ve even seen ready-to-go pots in Starbucks. A Swiss physician developed Bircher Müesli in the 1900s; he...
The Best Vanilla Panna Cotta
Very simple to make, all you need is five ingredients to enjoy a fresh and delicious Panna Cotta. Originally from Italy this dessert is made of full fat milk, vanilla, cream, sugar and gelatine. The only tricky part is to use the right amount of gelatine to get a creamy and wobbly Panna Cotta. Below you’ll find the only recipe you’ll ever need for...
Springtime makes New York come alive with bright colours and people out in the parks. Hello sun! Restaurant terraces and NY classic brunches wouldn’t be complete without a delicious bubbly Mimosa. This super simple cocktail, made mostly with orange juice and chilled champagne (or another sparkling white wine), is the perfect way to begin Sunday in a party mood. Treat yourself this Easter morning...
Yummy British Scones!
Scones are a quick bread, they can be savoury, sweet or plain. They are very popular in the United Kingdom, a classic treat from Devon (England) where they produce the best cream and butter of the country! For me the way to enjoy scones is to eat them hot, straight from the oven. Add regular butter and it is heaven! But the English love...
Pisco Sour, Chile v/s Perú
Chileans and Peruvians have their differences, they argue about football and politics, but I would like to write about something we have in common. Something that we love equally and both call our national cocktail: the Pisco Sour. Peruvian restaurants are everywhere in London and I am thankful for that. Now I can go out and enjoy a delicious Pisco Sour this side of the...
