Vegetarian borscht with red lentils Borscht, Lentils, Chili, Soup, Vegetarian, Culture, Red, Kitchens, Chile

Vegetarian borscht with red lentils

Oh, I can write a lot about borscht.It is better to say: it'll be hard to write about the most famous Ukrainian soup briefly :) May be it is borscht that comes first to my mind when I think about Ukrainian cuisine. It's like kapustnica for Slovaks and it has both gastronomical and cultural values.…

Chicken terrine with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted peppers

Hello, Ferns and Cakes, it‘s been awhile. Well, February was not the most exciting month so I'm happy that it‘s‚ almost over and I just hope that upcoming sping will bring much more courage to "cook and tell". Today I want to share an easy recipe of chicken terrine. I was amazed with amount of different…

Turmeric ginger chicken soup with noodles

Chicken soup seems to be an important dish for many countries. In Odessa it was claimed to be a cure against all possible illnesses (no wonder, as Odessa has a big Jewish population and a rich chicken soup is a staple of East European Jewish cuisine). In Bratislava, chicken soup also plays the key role…

Roasted chicken thighs with fennel and orange

2 cool things have happened this week. First: short interviews with Slovak food bloggers about their favourite fall and winter dishes were published in the latest edition of Dobré Jedlo magazine. So, I’m proud to be featured in the magazine that I like among a company of inspired people. Second: Oslavujeme s Teleránom cookbook has…

Marinated shark steaks

A fish dish for a change. Many of you asked if I am vegetarian because I mostly post vegetarian recipes here. No, I am not, just meat is not my biggest priority in the kitchen now and that's why I am more focused on other dishes. However, fish is always a good idea, especially boneless…

Umami duck soup with pak choi

Duck stock is my new favourite stock. I discovered it 2 month ago and cook it almost every week since then like a base for different soups. The recipe I want to share is dedicated to my recent travel to Amsterdam where I visited China town and was amazed how wide they use pak choi…

Salted caramel tartlets with banana and dark chocolate

OMG, I have so much to write and so little time to do it. For example, if you follow me on Instagram (@my.ko.la there) you might know about my newest love affair with sour dough baking. I should write a post a about it, because it's just great and exciting experience that it deserves to be…

White beans, mushrooms, sausage and kale soup

It is cold here in Slovakia (around -15C in the morning) thus a big bowl of a hot soup is something to dream about. So I decided to taste a new soup recipe and to use dried mushrooms we gathered in Nová Baňa in autumn. Once again, it was success from the first try (considering…

Roasted and mashed cauliflower with sun-dried tomatoes salsa

It seems that I've already posted recipes with all possible varieties of cabbage and for unknown reasons cauliflower was an exception. It's time to break this circle :) The only dish with cauliflower I had known before was simply boiled cauliflower and then served with greens, garlic and cheese. I decided to extend my horizons…

Spelt flour focaccia with rosemary and olives

One of my New Year resolutions was to write down all the recipes I want to add to my upcoming book. So I've done it and now it's time to test everything that was planned and to post the results here. Let me start with rosemary and olives focaccia. A few notes. There are plenty…

Sausage and shrimp gumbo

I've first heard about gumbo from my very favourite BBC Food program podcast. It was clear that this is a special dish of American cuisine (I can compare it with borsht in Ukraine or kapustnica here in Slovakia), because it seems that hundreds of recipes exist and every family from Louisiana has its own way…

Pavlova with chocolate and fruit

Pavlova was my obvious choice for one of Christmas dinners I’ve enjoyed this week. It's easy to make (well, if you know how to make it right), it doesn't require million of ingredients and it looks incredibly stylish. Of course, summer choice of fruit and berries gives you more options of what to add to…

Last minute Christmas baking: dried fruit and ginger biscotti

This recipe has caused a lot of questions from my facebook friends, so I’m glad to share it here. Biscotti are obviously not Slovak Christmas classics, but I think that it's a nice addition to the variety of cookies. They also remind German Christmas stollen, they are just quicker to make. A lot of biscotti…
