It’s been a while since my last blog post, but the summertime, the seaside, the travels, work and trainings do their thing, and a month or two turn around without even knowing how and when. But finally, today, a special story is in front of you. The story of Šentjanž, Slovenia. Repovž. A small town we’ve heard a lot about. A town on the border between the Savinja and Dolenjska regions. About family. Family business. Ecological farm. Tradition of over 150 years. A culinary experience with top quality wines – luckily they also offer accommodation. We decided to have the royal pampering, which, besides the 7-course dinner, also includes one night for two and breakfast. It was definitely an experience to remember. One for the books, you might say!
Like many (especially slightly Instagram and food-obsessed) girls, I have a bucket list of restaurants I want to visit. This list is divided into Slovenian and foreign restaurants. I think that everyone should taste the food of at least some really good restaurants around the world to experience different tastes, and find out what you like and what not. This way you in a way find yourself, especially if you like cooking yourself, and discover your “style”.
Today, I got a friendly reminder from Facebook that it has been five years since I graduated from law school. On the one hand, I got this horrible feeling that I am getting old, but I know there are so many things to explore, see and try … Maybe this is the reason that for the whole week something was trying to tell me that we should really really go somewhere this weekend.
On Friday, 11 November, InterContinental Ljubljana and its 20th floor restaurant – B-restaurant – hosted a few of us lucky ones for lunch. We had the honor of tasting a few of the dishes from the Autumn menu of Michelin star chef Alfredo Russo.
When the most famous culinary family in Slovenia, the Jezeršek family, invites you to lunch, you simply don’t say no. Especially when they invite you to have lunch with them in the sky! How was it? One word: AMAZING! Keep reading to see the views from this restaurant in the sky and of course to drool over the delicious three course meal we’ve had.
I fell in love with Amsterdam before I even had the chance to taste any of the delicious foods it offers. The streets, the canals, the bridges, the houses, the tulips.. just, everything! But the foodie that I am just had to research where and what to eat if in Amsterdam for three to four days. Here’s what we had the chance to taste and what I suggest you do to:
What to eat in Brussels? Chocolate and waffles and fries of course! But where? I’ll tell you in a second! But Brussels food is not just that! Allow me to take you on a virtual food walk through Brussels with as many pics and as little words possible. Thank you Isabel from The Sunny Side of This for hosting me!
It’s been quite some time since I’ve taken the time to cook. Summer is always just so busy and there’s always so much on the weekends that I just don’t find the time to cook, plate, photograph and publish anything. Well, I got super inspired again yesterday at the food bloggers conference in Zagreb that I created three new dishes. The first one is this 😉
A while back, I got a bottle of the Baileys Luxe and I immediately thought how well it would fit in a chocolate mousse. Watching too many Masterchef shows made think I need to include a crunchy element as well – chocolate dirt or crumble it is, I thought! Plus some delicious sugar free cookies, fresh mint and edible flowers, and a lovely spring dessert was ready.
There is something about creamy soups that just keeps me wanting more. Just thick enough to border on puree, but thin enough to slide of that spoon like poetry. Full of vegetable flavour. And most importantly, without added flour or similar things that just should not be in soups, trying to make them thick, when veggies are the ones that can do so. My inspiration for this soup was Darko and his workshop, but I just had to work with what I had in my fridge, freezer and pantry. And guess what? It was delicious!
