Red currant brie quiche

Brie and red berries make a good pair. I used red currant marmalade.  The brie and the marmalade made it sweet and salty. I had sweet prosecco with this.

Reduced carbohydrates, instead of pastry case,  I used egg omelette to line the mould.

Ingredients

5 eggs

Cream

Red currant marmalade

Brie

Butter

Salt and black pepper

Savoury beet protein smoothie

 

Having raw eggs may cause health problems. To eat healthier I tried this recipe.

I found only hard boiled eggs in my fridge and cooked beetroots,  milk etc. I decided to start the day with a salted,  spicy smoothie.

Ingredients

3 hard boiled eggs

1 small cooked beetroot 2-3 cm in diameter

150 ml skimmed milk

1 tsp mustard

1 tsp kimchi paste

1 tbsp tomato paste

Salt and ground black pepper

Method

Put everything together in your magic bullet smoothie maker. Blend until it makes a smooth fluid. Season and use.

Enjoy!

Mango protein smoothies no. 1

With its perfect combination of sweet and sour, mango complements the rich taste of creamy cheeses, balances the heat of smoky dishes, and intensifies the flavors of other tropical fruits. This versatile fruit pairs well with apple, berries, caramel, citrus, coconut, melon, vanilla, and cinnamon.

To prepare mango flavoured protein smoothies I will try different pairings.

Ingredients

4 eggs whites

Mango purée

Milk

Frozen mixed berries

Caramel or caramel sauce

Method

I’m using magic bullet smoothie maker.

It’s easy to use and easy to keep clean.

Dinner at Hartsfield manor

Hartsfield Manor

 

This wonderful place is situated in a Victorian manor house.

Surrounded by 16 acres of Surrey countryside, Hartsfield Manor is a four-star Victorian property boasting elegant interiors and a garden terrace.

I had a romantic dinner here. The menu was as follows.

Starter: chicken liver pate with toast bread fingers and red onion jam. Well,  the toast was nice crispy outside and soft inside,  a perfect thing. The pate was a little dull,  I would have made it a little spicier with something, for example green peppers.  And would have cooked the red onion jam a little longer with a little more honey and balsamic vinegar.  The lettuce was flavourless,  I would’ve used a little dressing on it.

The main course  

Chicken breast supreme wrapped in bacon with red wine jus

Chicken breast supreme wrapped in bacon

You may think that this was a simple  chicken breast. But no.  It was full of flavours from the bacon and spices like salt and black pepper.  It was tender at the same time.  The vegetables were cooked with simple spices like salt a black pepper,  minimum.  Unlike similar dishes in London hotels vegetables were flavourful.

Third course was warm chocolate browney with vanilla ice cream.

Warm chocolate browney with vanilla ice cream

I’ve never heard about warm browney,  you can have cold and a kind of hard browneys in coffee shops. I always considered them forgettable. But not this one.

I lliked the warm chocolatey flavour with the cold vanilla ice cream splashed over with chocolate sauce.

If I have to summarize the menu,  I would say it had an outstanding quality.

Coffee dessert

I didn’t find a better name for this.

It’s more than a simple coffee. On weekend mornings I cherish myself with this. You need a double espresso or machiato,  a little honey (coffee melange),  a little  hazelnut cream liqueur (home made),  whipped cream,  caramel sauce and cinnamon powder.

Quite long list isn’t it.

But iit’s worth the long list.

How to consume this yummy thing?

I use long tea spoon with which I spoon the cream topped with hazelnut cream liqueur,   caramel cream and cinnamon or even with chocolate sauce. I try to plunge the cream into the coffee trying to make a more terrific flavour.

Enjoy!

Chicken piccata in savoury bacon and gherkin sauce


Ingredients

Chicken breast fillets

Flour to dust

Salt and black pepper

Oil to fry

Diced bacon

Chopped onion

Flour

Tomato paste

Chicken bouillon plus 200 ml water

Diced gherkins

Mixed herbs

Salt and black pepper

Method

On a little oil fry diced bacon.

When it turns a little red,  add chopped onion and stir fry until it becomes translucent. Add one or two teaspoons of flour and fry. Add one tablespoon tomato purée and one chicken stock cube and 200 ml warm water. Boil. Add mixed herbs like marjoram,  thyme, Provence herbs,  salt and black pepper. Simmer on medium temperature.

In the meantime cut chicken breast in two thin fillets.  Season with salt and black pepper. Dust with flour and fry on one tablespoon of oil for two minutes on both sides. Add to the sauce and simmer for ten minutes under cover.

Season with hot sauce if you like hot flavours. Add chopped gherkins. Finish with one tablespoon of yoghurt or sour cream. Bring to the boil and serve.

The chicken will be render,  the sauce a little hot and sour from the gherkins.

I like it,  I hope you will love it too.
