As a child I remember many types of mushroom stews especially with wild mushrooms. They were especially tasty but now almost impossible to find. Now the only available variety are champignons. As such, I welcomed finding a different type of mushrooms, interesting and yellow: chanterelles. This recipe is quite simple, basicaly a mushroom stew with some optional minced meat and served with pollenta.

Lentils are one of my favorite vegetable. They come in many colors: red, yellow, brown, green and black.
These last days it was cold and rainy and it seemed more like autumn end than middle summer. As such a warm, comforting soup seemed the most rewarding dish today.
Pentru cei care nu stiau, Wok to Walk e o franciza pentru niste localuri unde poti alege diferite combinatii de mancare gatita in wok in fata ta. O “reteta” dureaza cateva minute sa fie gata si e compusa in general dintr-o baza (orez sau noodles), carne, legume sau peste si sos. E o mancare asiatica rapida si ieftina, doar unul din multitudinea de restaurante asiatice pe care le gasesti prin capitalele europene. La Barcelona am stat cel putin 10 minute savurand dexteritatea bucatarului care manevra cu abilitate cele 2 wok-uri incinse. Pornind de la aceasta inspiratie m-am decis sa gasesc o buna trebuinta pentru wok-ul pe care il am si eu ca orice bucatar amator care a trecut pe la Ikea si anume o reteta cu: legume, carne de pui si coconut curry.
Ro: paste cu pesto din leurda (usturoi salbatic, usturoiul ursului)
Ramsons, wild garlic or bear garlic is a plant with a very strong flavor which grows wild in the forests around the city in spring for a few weeks. It is found rarely in the markets and then only for a few days each year but in my cycling trip this weekend I found the forest ground covered with it so I could not resist to collect a big bunch to make pesto and try a recipe I’ve done only a couple of times before: pasta with ramsons pesto. If the winter was long and the spring has not yet convinced you this extremely strong flavored recipe will convince you of spring with no argument left.
I’ve been craving for some fresh vegetables and for spring for some time but in the market the only thing which attracted me was a red cabbage and some mushrooms. So what I did was the very simple mushrooms soup accompanied by a red cabbage salad. Thinly cut red cabbage, softened with salt for 30 mins then added vinegar and sesame seeds.
