Autumn and rainy days. Time for friends and dinners in candlelight. And of course chocolate, Lots of it! The first post after this summer’s busy days for me turned into a chocolate cake with intense red lingonberries, dark chocolate, a fun bottom layer with red lentils and dried blue cornflowers with a hint of midsummer bright nights.
Chestnut flour is a new discovery for me since a few months ago. It has a great slightly sweet taste and can be used for both cakes, pasta and bread. Today I make a sticky chocolate cake with it.
Today a review from a fantastic book, the Vegan cuisine by the top vegan chef Jean-Christian Jury. From the book I make braised pears with cabbage confit and white chocolate-onion puree.
Yes, one more sweet little something for Christmas… A small chocolate truffle with chestnut puree!
A few weeks ago, I had a post on the blog with homemade bread and a bitter orange marmalade. The same evening that I had made it, I had a vision about the marriage of the tastes marmalade, cashew nuts and chocolate. I had to try it! And it turned out really great, I just have to share it with you!
October has for some days shown itself from its best side, the sun has been shining and the rain has stayed away. Last weekend I even was walking to the supermarket in just a t-shirt! But then again, the weather reminded us about the season and changed.
Oh my gosh! This taste so good, and it’s not too bad for your body either. Full of raw goodies, good fats and minimal with sugar. In short a win-win, thumb up in other words.
