Warm Duck Salad

This is one of my favourite salads that I don’t prepare very often. It is probably not an every day salad, however, if you want to indulge yourself or surprise someone, this salad is a wonderful meal. It’s a symphony of sweet-sour and savoury, soft and crunchy, homely and gamy. Warm Duck Salad Ingredients: 2…

No-cheese cheesecake.

I needed a way to trick myself with a pseudo cheesecake. And here it is, my solution recipe. If you are allergic to dairy products like me, or lactose intolerant, I hope you will like this cake. The only warning I’d like to make is that this cake is best when served with a tea,…

Bunless Burger

If you are convinced of the benefits of the fermented food and practising it or using white cabbage in your cooking, then this will help you make the most of it. When I ferment the cabbage or cook Borsch I usually cut off the top of the cabbage, all those thin leaves. If previously I…

French  Fennel Soup

What a classic favourite is the French Onion Soup! In this recipe I am mimicking it but using fennel instead of onions. The taste overcame my expectations. My challenge was to  somehow get grilled cheese and some crust into the soup without using a bread. I have come up with a few options. At first…

Berries in Snow

After discovering Freekah wholegrain and starring with my Freekah Salad, my son presented me with Freekah flour. What a wonderful taste and colour! I think it will be really cool to create something with Pistachio, as they are of the very similar colour. This flour triggered my inspiration for the Berries in Snow cake just…

Freekah Salad

If you embraced Quinoa years ago, you will love Freekeh/Freekah. It is packed with prebiotics and nutrients, has lots of fibre (about 10%), high protein content for a grain (about 15%). The only thing we need to be aware of is that Freekah is a wheat grain, and it does contain some gluten. Although its…

Hazelnut Cacao Log

This recipe is a good example of a creation that occurs first on your tongue and brain. Sometime you are  lucky to produce it with no hassle, but this one has taken a long time and many ingredients in order to get to something very close. Health benefits of raw cacao were researched in a…
