Homemade thyme flatbreads

I wanted to make a new recipe for flatbread with figs & goat cheese, and instead of buying the breads I decided to try and make them myself. I never in a million years expected it to be THIS easy but it really was! I based my recipe on one from Jamie Oliver - my food hero - and turned them into thyme flatbreads as they went better with my…

Boiled & pan fried chicken dumplings with enoki mushrooms & a roasted peanut salad with bok choy & chinese spinach

Back in Europe I would always say that Italian food was my favourite, it's also something you can find quite a lot - but out here in Australia it's Asian food that has stolen my heart. Sushi, dumplings, dim sims, you name it, Australia's got it! My friend from Sydney used to always say to me that the sushi back in Ireland did not even remotely compare to the one…

Sausage rolls with cheese

ausage rolls have always been one of my favourite snacks, ever since I was a kid. Once I learned how easy it is to make them yourself, I only ended up loving them even more as it became so easy to add all these amazing flavours. I've previously made a few versions already, for example one with black pudding, apple and cranberry but also plain pork sausage rolls and pork,…

Chocolate tartlets

These yummy chocolate tartlets are just the Tuesday Treat for me. I loooooove chocolate, especially when it's combined with red fruits and blueberries. I made these when I got invited to dinner over at my cousin's place and used some dough that I had left over from another tartlet recipe that I've made (but haven't posted yet). It's actually quite easy to make, the only tricky thing is trying to…

Parmesan fish & chips

This recipe has been created in support of #cheesecopenhagen taking place this weekend as part of the European Milk Forum’s 2019 Cheese Culture campaign which is being implemented locally in Ireland by the National Dairy Council to encourage Irish consumers to eat more quality cheese from Europe. #cheeseyourway Growing up in Belgium, I was introduced to European cheeses from a very early age as we are quite the cheese eaters. Emmental,…
