Passion fruit Hearts


One more month to go before spring… I don’t know about you, but with all the love I’ve got for forgotten veggies and old roots, I’ve had my share for this winter. I am so craving for spring and all it’s green goodies.

Thank god for the tropical and other citrus fruit:

They are the suns of my winter!
Not exactly local I know, but relatively environmental friendly when shipped by boat or truck (energy category B in NL).

Passion fruit is my favorite. So fragrant, juicy, sweet and sexy! » Read the rest of this entry «

Le Yasmine or my secret thing for pastry

December 17th, 2008 § 1 comment § permalink

My passion for food and cooking is definitely inspired from watching my mom lovingly and passionately preparing all those marvelous dishes that tinkled my tastebuds for so many years. My mom’s kitchen is one of inspiration, emotion and  improvisation. It’s a little bit of this and a lot of that, put together in a fling and cooked lovingly until perfect. There’s no definite measures and quantities, no arbitrary times… Just emotions. That’s how I learned to cook and that’s how I like to cook too (although when starting this blog I’ve had to learn weighing, measuring and writing down everything).

And then there’s pastry….

Fish! I like it RAW! (2)

July 29th, 2006 § 0 comments § permalink

As promised in my previous post, here is my second of this summer “raw fish” special coming right out of the kitchen…


Fresh cod fish in passion fruit marinade

2 pers. prep: 10 min

300g fresh cod fish filet

1/2  lemon

1 Tsp. olive oil (fruity but not too strong)
a few leaves of fresh basilic
1 or 2 chili peppers
a pinch of sugar
sea salt, pepper

Wash your cod fishand put it in the freezer for at least half an hour. Prepare your marinade: mix passion fruit flesh withe juice of half of a lemon in your kitchen processor. Pass the juice through a thin sieve, to eliminate the seeds from the passion fruit. Mix the juice, olive oil and the pinch of sugar. Cut your cod fish in slices (~1/2 cm). Put the fish and lemon slices in a tupperware and cover with the marinade, add the chili pepers and chopped basil. Season with sea salt (preferably “fleur de sel”) and fresh grounded peper. Close your tupperware, and here you go again: shake it, baby shake it! and forget it in the fridge while you enjoy the summer sun, a glass of chilled rose, a siesta, I think you know what I mean … Dispose the fish in a nice plate or terrine. Serve as an apetizer or starter. 

Bon appétit!
