There are many dinners planned around potatoes, rice or pasta. Today I add a lovely Italian classical to it: Polenta. I make fried polenta with red onion marmalade, shiitake tapenade and smoked tofu. A great alternative for dinner together with some green leaves or even as a fancy snack to go with the sunday drink.
Chestnuts are really a nice treat to enjoy at this time of the year! Just roasted with some salt and butter on a cold evening in front of the fireplace. Aaaah! But luckily you also can enjoy them even without the open fire. Like in this soup with chestnuts and crispy sage.
Sometimes the best dinners are the ones that starts up with absolutely no plan what so ever. Like these vegan “meatballs” with sage, ovenbaked eggplant and salsa brava. So rich in taste!
The summer is the prime time for BBQ! Julius Jaspers, a well-known chef in the Netherlands knows that. He, a big enthusiast for barbecuing, have in the book BBQ bijbel collected al his knowledge about the subject. And I must say, it really covers everything!
