Les couteaux sont de retour – Couteaux farcis aux herbes et zestes de citron These razor clams remind me of my childhood with my grandmother on a beach on the Adriatic.

Ricordo lontano – Carpaccio di polpo   I have been wanting to make this carpaccio for such a long time, then one thing or another comes up and I end up making something else.

Brick stuffed with curried vegetable, yogurt herb sauce

0
Bricks de légumes au curry, sauce yaourt aux herbes I got inspired by Indian samosas when I made those.

Portobellos farcis aux légumes, chèvre et basilic I cannot believe that my last post goes back to one month ago. Shame on me. I have no excuse, so shame on me twice.

Brocoli rave sauté, galettes de patates douces et carottes, sauce au yaourt-coriandre   Going back to my favorite cuisine, vegetarian…I just love the vibrant colors of vegetables and their versatility, they’re too good to keep aside.
