Grilled aubergine and toasted walnut pesto with chili-lemon cod fillets en papillote

Grilled aubergine and toasted walnut pesto with chili-lemon cod fillets en papillote

What better way to get rid of that blue Monday feeling, than to cook yourself some lovely pasta with a homemade pesto and some fresh cod, cooked in a slightly spicy sauce! I always make pesto myself, but I usually go for the standard garlic-basil pesto made with pinenuts, but today I wanted to make something with walnuts and a fruit that very often gets underestimated and isn't very…

Pork, cranberry and red onion sausage rolls

Pork, cranberry and red onion sausage rolls

Today probably doesn't mean much to most people, unless you live in Belgium where they are celebrating 'Verloren maandag' (Lost Monday) today. On this day they traditionally eat sausage rolls or baked apples in pastry so in honour of my roots I created my own sausage roll recipe, with some great winter ingredients and lovely herbs and spices. Now what is this 'Lost Monday'? Although it's generally known in Belgium, this…

Goat cheese, dill and blackberry jam vol au vents

Goat cheese, dill and blackberry jam vol au vents

With Christmas only two days away, I'm going to share one last recipe with you all before taking a short break during the holidays. We all know vol au vents as a main course, but you can so easily turn them into little appetizers as well. I went for a sweet version made with only 3 ingredients in the filling: blackberry jam, goat cheese and dill. Making the vol au…

Belgian Madeira Sauce with Mushrooms, Buttery Beef Fillet and Irish Boxty

Time for my last recipe from my collaboration with Kerrygold Belgium 2017! Just like last year I was challenged to create a couple of Belgian classics but add an Irish twist to them. First I made 'Halloween cupcakes with Kerrygold butter, pumpkin spices, pomegranate drops, buttercream and fondant ghosts', then 'Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce' and now for my final recipe…

Easy spelt honey & herb loaf

Easy spelt honey & herb ciabatta

Step by step I'm trying out new techniques and ways of making different kinds of bread. One weekend I was really craving some bruschetta but I didn't have any ciabatta or baguettes in the house so I decided to look at some recipes and try to make my own spelt loaf. It's not quite the same as ciabatta as there are no holes in this bread, but I'll be…

Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce

Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce

A delicious Belgian waffle with whipped cream, fresh fruit and powdered sugar: oh isn't that a treat? It's no wonder Belgium is known around the world for their waffles. But even though they are usually considered to be a sweat treat, you can get very creative with these waffles, which is exactly what I decided to do. Even though I had never eaten them myself, I decided to give this Belgian…
