Cakes + Cookies

That’s how we started (picture below). With a slightly completely adjusted Ottolenghi recipe in order to veganize it… We knew that probably the little cakes wouldn’t come out like in the photo of the cookbook, but having in mind the delicious Tuscanian chocolate cake with a similar ratio of ingredients we began the experiment. The result after 20 minutes in the oven? Very crisp, very oily, utterly flat (let’s say concave) uhm.. tarts?!? Hard to name a thing […]

Tiger nut milk is already creamy and sweet without any supplements.  I usually add vanilla, sometimes cardamom or cinnamon, when I want to give it a special  flavour. For more sweetness you […]

plum somen with lemon scented olive oil and black sesame

The pink beauties I bought at Muji owe their colour and their slightly fruity/salty flavour to Ume, a Japanese plum.   Usually I eat somen with a dip of […]
