Fried aubergine with roasted pepper sauce

I’m a big fan of fried aubergine. So much so, that usually eat half before they reach the table, with some Lebanese bread and a pinch of salt. Yum! So basically for this recipe, you could just skip the sauce and go straight to enjoying the fried aubergine, haha! But […]

Roasted vegetables with garlic sauce and sriraccia

In the Middle-East many dishes are common to the different countries. Each country, and sometimes, region, gives the dishes its own flair and its own touch. Take shawarma for instance: it’s part of practically each middle-eastern cuisine but tastes different from one to the other. This recipe uses the same […]

Zucchini moutabbal

‘What’s a moutabbal?’ I hear you say. Well in Lebanon (and the Middle-East in general) it literally means ‘mixed’ and usually indicates some kind of spread. In my family, when you say moutabbal you usually mean baba ganoush. Hummus has become a household item and the baba ganoush is also […]

Chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse

Originally I had made this recipe as part of the tonca bean panna cotta and then I realised that it is so good on its own that it simply deserves its own entry. It’s chocolate, it’s mousse, it’s raspberries, it’s macadamia. Not convinced yet? Then go make it. Now 😉 […]
