My love for books started young. My love for eating with my hands as well. Has the latter something to do with the first?
Last week I felt my second earthquake, the first in my own home.

As an eager cook I have a filled pastry; fridge and freezer included. If I don’t want to, I don’t have to go out for shopping for my dinner. Great when a blizzard hits you – if you don’t life in NorCal, best if you just don’t want to. My spaghetti Bolognese can proof that.
One plus one is … this recipe for stir fried Brussels sprouts with anchovies.
I don’t know if it was written in the stars, but last Saturday turned out to have Japanese ‘feel’ although I didn’t ate any Japanese food. I saved that for my first experiments with hot pot today. Playing with some leftovers, I invented a recipe for Japanese escarole and tofu hot pot with udon noodles.
If I don’t know what to cook, I usually end up stirring some risotto. This recipe risotto with fennel and roasted tomatoes is one of my favorites.
Isn’t it funny how eating a dish can make you long to be in another place? Or another season even? Id you have a sunny desire – try this recipe: Pasta salad with tomatoes, watercress and burrata.
Did you know that one of the most popular Dutch dishes since ages is made with kale? But now I prepare kale Californian style, like in this Raw kale salad with glazed parsnips and a quick shallot confit.
