Egg yolk ravioli with beef jam, bavette steak and avocado salsa

It has been a bit of a week, it started off challenging but got better as the week proceeded. By Wednesday I try to have a plan for the market on Saturday of what to bring and what pastas to make. This week I thought I would follow a friends suggestion and make a display … Continue reading

Ravioli is a perfect little foodie parcel. It has soft pasta on the outside and offers a burst of flavor when you bite in to the filling.

Sunday seafood brunch

Smoked duck breast with rhubarb vinaigrette

Sometimes I get asked the question where I get my inspiration from to cook. In all honestly I cook far from every day and mainly on weekends so it is easier with lots of time. I get my inspiration everywhere, something I eat when I am out, something I hear someone else has cooked, cookbooks, … Continue reading
