I am not very good using yeast. Fermentation at home is a challenge, specially in winter. But I found a room upstairs with a constant warm temperature and my breads are now rising properly.
This one is just delicious and the nutmeg touch combines very well. It looks more complicated than it really is. give it a try and enjoy the process…and the result.

Going through the kitchen cabinets at home I spotted a couple of packages of oats. I like my porridge in the morning but it is going in seasons. I go mad for a week and I stock up for a month and then I get bored.

A great song : The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen.
Intense and delicate. And very easy to make.
The main thing is to use a good chocolate. Valrhona is my choice.

Escabeche (Pickled) is a traditional way of preserving food in Spain. This technique can be used for meats and fish. And not only preserves food, it also gives a beautiful combination of flavours to the meat.
Back at home, it was great to open the fridge and find those Trouts in Escabeche or Quails in Escabeche… Here in Dublin, I made before chicken and salmon in Escabeche and the result is always impressive. It is easy, healthy and handy as it last in perfect conditions in the fridge for more than a week.
