April 2016 Kitchen Review
There is a lot happening in that kitchen since I’ve been back from Australia. And there is more planned for next week (gingerboy’s birthday and australian typical birthday cakes on my list).
For now I want to show you some discovery I made thanks to my swiss friends.
They know I’m a totally crazy about cooking and baking. They are also. Especially the husband of my friend who is not swiss really… (he is italian, you know how important food is for italians!) Each time we visit them, we have a Raclette, Pastas, Pizzas, wines, chocolate and a few more kilos of body weigh 😉
Gifts for the kitchen
They offered me some nice little bowls. They are cute, aren’t they? What should I use them for? Don’t say ice cream because you’ll see just in few lines…
Swiss people know their job about chocolates, dairy products, cheese… but they are not bakers, sorry! For the first time, I discovered the supermarket brezels that you heat in the oven and wow!!! So good! So simple!
As we visited them after Easter… Guess what? We had to eat tons of chocolates! So hard!
Swiss chocolates is not only about Lindt chocolates. They are lots of different kind of chocolates. Milk chocolates with praline inside, with fruits, with cream…
Souvenirs I bought there
We have a little ritual with my friend… We like to go for shopping in the biggest mall of the city. We let the kids in the Kinder Paradise with the lovely ladies. And we have some hours for ourselves. In our favorite shop « Globus », I found those pretty ice cream cups. I bought 6 of them, one in each color. They were used right away for raspberry smoothies. Yum!
Need, Want, Really NEEEEEED
Look at that invention!!! I love it so much! This is an electrical parmesan (or whatever hard cheese) grater. This is very economical and you get always fresh cheese. It’s a very clever tool! And yes those pastas are delicious!!! Especially with sicilian olive oil.
And a collaborative recipe from my italiano swiss friend: a special orange and fennel salad.
I have to confess, I don’t like fennel – at – all! But I enjoyed this salad very much!
Just cut in slice 3 oranges (a mix of blood orange and regular orange is perfect) and fennel. The secret is too serve it very cold with olive oil and topped with rock salt.
